Video: Sparkle 2 is Coming to PS4 and PS Vita on May 20th, 2014

32w ago - 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced today alongside a video trailer that Sparkle 2 is coming to PS4 and PS Vita on May 20th, 2014.

To quote: Hello again! I'm back today to announce 10tons is about to bring another action puzzle game, Sparkle 2, to PS4 and PS Vita. Sparkle 2 will launch on both platforms on May 20th, with cross buy support and a free trial. It's priced at $7.99.

Sparkle 2 is a superbly polished match-three puzzle game set in a mysterious world of magic and wonder. The game features smooth gameplay, plenty of power-ups with big special effects, beautiful graphics, and a cinematic soundtrack.

We're particularly proud of how well the basic gameplay translated to gamepad controls. Marble shooters play great with mouse controls or a touch screen, and we had an idea it'd work with an analog stick, too. We just didn't expect it to be quite as good as Sparkle 2 turned out.

An even bigger unknown, and an even more pleasant surprise, was how fun the game is to play with the DualShock 4 touch pad. We're using it basically like a mouse, with an on-screen pointer and all, and it works really nicely. On PS Vita we of course use the touch screen, and it's just awesome.

10tons Ltd Announces Sparkle on PlayStation Vita is Out Today

53w ago - Today 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that Sparkle on PlayStation Vita is officially released!

To quote: Hello, readers! Greetings from the magical winter wonderland* of Finland.

I'm Jaakko from multiplatform game developer [Register or Login to view links]. Even though we've been around for ten years now, we're genuinely excited to make our PS Vita debut this week.

The game we've chosen to be the spearhead of our entry to PS Vita is Sparkle. It's a marble shooter puzzle game, and probably the most popular game we've ever made.

The game is actually out on PS Vita in Europe already, and we've received a whole lot of positive reviews and feedback on it. Many noted that this particular subgenre of match-three is extremely underrepresented on PS Vita. Not anymore!

What sets Sparkle apart from many marble shooters are the big and brash power-ups, considerable level of challenge, and the slightly dark, mysterious theme. This type of game fits mobile gaming really well, and PS Vita is the ultimate device to play it on. Playing Sparkle with the touchscreen is fast and accurate, but if you prefer thumbstick controls, they're there as well.

We're also really happy it's possible to offer free trials of games on PS Vita. We realize...

Video: Treasure Park for PlayStation Vita: How to Play Like a Pro

114w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida has posted up a video today showcasing how to play like a pro on Treasure Park for PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: Hi everyone! I'll let you into a secret. When I'm not busy in my role as President of Worldwide Studios I live a secret double life!

I'm a pro treasure hunter and was even at one point ranked number one in the world. My specialist field is an app only available on PS Vita called Treasure Park (although I can also be found searching for Drake's Fortune in the Golden Abyss).

I'm always on the lookout for new challengers, so today I'd like to share some of my experience with fledgling treasure hunters around the globe so that one day, you too might become a world-class pro.





Step 1:

When hunting for treasure, it's very important to bear in mind the concept of pieces. There are four different pieces hidden on a sheet; at the start, you're told the colors of where some parts of these pieces lie. This information is very important!

Let's focus on the bombs. In this example shown above, blue and yellow are risky colors.

Step 2:

There are two bombs lurking somewhere among the blue squares and...

120w ago - Sony European Product Manager Mayumi Donovan has announced that beginning today PS Vita owners can download the free PlayStation Vita Treasure Park application alongside a video of it in action below!

To quote: Hi everyone. I hope you're in the mood to hunt for some hidden gaming booty, because I'm pleased to announce that Treasure Park for PlayStation Vita is out today.

Treasure Park is a fun puzzle app to while away the hours and it's exclusively available for PS Vita. The premise is simple - create your own puzzle sheet and hide your treasure and medals.

Friends will be sniffing around hunting for treasure, so make sure you plant some well-placed bombs to trap them. With the touchscreen it's quick and easy to set up and get going.

Once you've created your puzzle sheet, you can share it with your fellow fortune hunters using the "near" app or find other puzzles to play and collect treasures. The more you play, the better chance you'll have at getting a high score. You can also team up with your friends to earn big scores. See the trailer below for a closer look.
