Fancy a bit of puzzling fun with some strange looking creatures? Or maybe just a relaxing evening with some aquatic friends? Either way, PlayStation Network has the perfect downloads for your PS3.
Operation Creature Feature
Operation Creature Feature introduces an intriguing new race of beings called Blurbs; tiny three-dimensional creatures that share more than a passing resemblance to space aliens. However, without any mode of transport, the little tykes are a tad stuck - and not in the safest of places either. The Blurbs are trapped in five differently themed levels with over 20 mazes to navigate, each with deadly hazards such as spikes, ice, deep waters, lava and fire, making life very difficult - and death very easy - for the poor things.
Using the PlayStation® Eye camera, it's up to you to help the Blurbs to safety. With your image shown on the screen, the multi-coloured creatures are attracted to your every movement, making your arms, head, body or anything else within the range of the PlayStation® Eye's lens a guiding tool. By gently scooping them up, moving them along and avoiding fatal traps, each saved Blurb goes towards your tally which is totalled once the time limit is up. Meet your quota and you move on to the next level. Fail and... well, you don't want the grisly fate of these unfortunate beings on your conscience, do you?
Operation Creature Feature's use of the PlayStation® Eye makes it an addictive and fun game that will fittingly attract the attention of anyone passing by as you gesture your hands like a skilful magician, telekinetically moving Blurbs with mere flicks of the wrist. Because of its tactile control, the game is very easy to pick up and there's enough of a challenge to keep puzzle fans trying again, and again to get that perfect score.
Turning your TV into a virtual aquarium, Aqua Vita offers a wonderfully serene experience which allows you to interact with a tank of virtual fish using the PlayStation® Eye camera. Once loaded, your image is reflected on-screen through a large aquarium full of the inquisitive little animals, such as Lion Fish, Box Fish and Clownfish. Each species has its own characteristics as well - groups of Neon Tetra will follow your reflection, while Cardinal Fish casually drift to the front of the tank to take a closer look at you.
There's also the chance to feed your virtual pets with tiny bits of food that gently sprinkles from the tank's opening. But true to real life, these fish will generally go about their merry way if they're not reacting to your actions, which makes Aqua Vita the ideal way to unwind after a long hard day, letting you drift away on the beautiful azure waters and relaxingly observe its peaceful inhabitants.
Operation Creature Feature and Aqua Vita are exclusive to PlayStation Network and available for download to your PlayStation 3 from PlayStation Store.
