King Oddball, Dustforce hit PlayStation Store today

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Hitbox Team's platformer Dustforce and 10tons' physics puzzler King Oddball will both be available today in the PlayStation Store in North America, according to the PlayStation Blog.

King Oddball is a surreal puzzle game, and Finnish studio 10tons acknowledges that the PlayStation Vita title bears more than a passing similarity to Angry Birds. The titular character floats in the sky and lobs rocks at enemies using his tongue, as you can see in the screenshot above. The player only controls the release timing, and there are usually more enemies to take down than there are rocks to toss. Interested parties will be able to check out a demo, and the full game will cost $5.99.

Dustforce was originally released in January 2012 on Windows PC, and was scheduled to be released last month on PlayStation Network and Xbox Games Store. The speed-focused platformer will be available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita for $9.99; it supports cross-save and cross-play, but not cross-buy, so you'll have to purchase each version separately. Because Dustforce is a part of Sony's PS Vita Play promotion, it will be discounted by 20 percent to $7.99 for PlayStation Plus subscribers through Feb. 10.
