Frantics (PlayLink) PS4
Enjoy manic multiplayer fun in the comfort of your own home - and you don't even need a load of extra controllers. Frantic is a PlayLink game, so the only thing each player requires to join in is a smartphone or tablet, and a Wi-Fi connection.
There's a host of hilarious mini-games on offer - everything from action-packed all-out brawls to more thinky, turn-based efforts. Watch out for your pesky host, the Fox - he's there to encourage bribery, bluffing, backstabbing, and all sorts of other dreadful mischief. Maybe the Countryside Alliance has got a point.
- Bye bye buttons - Frantics is played using your phone or tablet's touchscreen, so it's all about shaking, tilting and swiping your way to victory; plus, keep an eye out for private intel and secret missions that will only show up on your screen
- Squash match - The characters in Frantics are made from a kind of virtual clay, which means it's extremely satisfying to flatten them with steam rollers, bash them with baseball bats and chuck them off cliffs; SPLAT
- 5 frenetic mini-games - Sure, quick reflexes come in handy when playing Frantic's 15 mini-games; but thanks to the Fox's evil bonus challenges, it's also about manipulating and outmaneoeuvring your rivals; then laughing at their humiliating defeat, of course
- Mashup mayhem - There are 12 animal characters to choose from and you can customise them so they look even more ridiculous
