Tearaway: Unfolded is a PS4 treasure and only £12.85

Tearaway was one of the finest titles on the PS Vita and we're delighted to see the game given a PS4 remix, if not a little sad we're not getting a Vita sequel. As tempting as it is to wait for a £10 deal, this could be the best price you'll see this side of Christmas (actually, come back tomorrow, I get bit in the ass everytime I say something like that).

Here's a sample of my reviewTearaway Unfolded has found a new home on the PS4 and contains plenty of new ways to use the DualShock 4 for unique in-game interactions. It's still worth owning if you've played the Vita version too. Difficulty is nicely balanced for players of all abilities and there are lots of collectibles for completionists to find.

Thanks to BuzzDuraband.

LittleBigPlanet 3 only £5 on PS4

[UPDATE: Sold out now]

At £5 you have no excuses for not owning one of the best co-op experiences out there. This is easily the cheapest price yet.

For the first time in the series, we have additional characters to play as in the 2D platformer. There's a wall-jumping speedy dog that handles beautifully compared to Sackboy's awkward jumps. Another newbie can shrink or grow fat at will and we even have a flying bird to reach exclusive areas. Add in the creative mode where you can build or download levels (including the millions from previous games) and you have a game that should never get old. It's also a great laugh in local multiplayer. Read our LittleBigPlanet 3 review, and make sure you've bookmarked our games deals stream for future bargains.

Thanks to Bure11.

Will you give Knack a home for Christmas at this price?

This could be the cheap Knack deal you've been waiting for, knowing full well it might not be a great game given those perhaps over-expectant reviews. But at £6.95 are you tempted? This is listed as a 'bundle copy' so it could have different packaging than normal. But hey, it's £3 cheaper than the next best price.

Knack got a bit of a kicking at launch, but many players have defended it with such high praise as "it's not that bad actually." Not the most glowing praise I'll admit, but if you're after a colourful action platformer title with next-gen visuals, we think this is a great price. Especially seeing as Ratchet, Jak and Sly are taking their sweet time to get on our PS4s!

Thanks to Lomi.

Yoshi's Wooly World only £25.95 on Wii U

Yoshi's Woolly World is one of the best platformers we've seen in a while and we're surprised to see it on sale for as little as  for just £25.95 when it's going for over £30 at many other sites.

Sometimes you just want to chill out with a game and you'll struggle to find a more comforting-looking game than Yoshi's Woolly World on the Wii U. Want to know more? Take a look at Jon's full review"Yoshi's Woolly World is Nintendo at their inventive best. Delightful and deceptively devious, this sensational platformer encourages you to explore, experiment and genuinely play with it at every turn."

Thanks to gibbles.

Ratchet & Clank PS4 reboot gets a cheap preorder

Sony and Insomniac are giving the original Ratchet & Clank game a full-on reboot. This is no new-gen spit and polish, this is a completely redesigned game. Better yet, this early preorder is comfortably cheaper than the competition.

The series is being rebooted alongside the upcoming movie release and could throw the series back into the mainstream and hopefully give the platformer genre a boost on PS4. If you are in need of a new-gen platforming fix, give Tearaway: Unfolded a shot.

Thanks to BuzzDuraband.

Tearaway Unfolded Review - Treat your DualShock 4

What a joy it is to see Tearaway land on the PS4, especially if you don't own a PS Vita and always wanted to try Media Molecule's much-loved title. Crucially, for fans of the original, there's enough new material here to justify owning both versions.

The Vita's plethora of control inputs were a perfect fit for Tearaway's ambitious ideas. Thankfully, the DualShock 4 performs admirably too, with the trackpad bearing much of the workload, which I'll tell you about soon enough.

Tearaway Unfolded Review - Treat your DualShock 4

If you're new to Media Molecule's other platformer created after LittleBigPlanet, you'll find an excellent experience that's just become the PS4's best platformer - not that the competition is strong right now. You control Iota, a little fella with an envelope for a face. Don't worry, just go with it.

Tearaway: Unfolded gets even cheaper on PS4

Tearaway was one of the finest titles on the PS Vita and we're delighted to see the game given a PS4 remix, if not a little sad we're not getting a Vita sequel. This deal is the cheapest price yet, which is pretty good seeing as the game only launched yesterday.

You may even be able to get some more money knocked off if you set up a new account and use the discount code 'WELCOME'. We're hoping to have a review for you in the next week or so to see how much has changed with the PS4 version of the Vita classic. Early hands-on impressions have been largely positive though.

Exactly how bad can Knack really be for £9.99?

This could be the cheap Knack deal you've been waiting for, knowing full well it might not be a great game given those perhaps over-expectant reviews. But at £9.99 are you tempted? This is listed as a 'bundle copy' so it could have different packaging than normal. But hey, it's nearly £7 cheaper than the next best new price.

Knack got a bit of a kicking at launch, but many players have defended it with such high praise as "it's not that bad actually." Not the most glowing praise I'll admit, but if you're after a colourful action platformer title with next-gen visuals, we think this is a great price.

Castle of Illusion HD only £2.50 on PC

Castle of Illusion HD starring Mickey Mouse is now only £2.50 on PC today.

Sega's HD remake ruffled a few feathers (well, mine) by daring to add 3D sections to the classic side-scrolling platformer from the glory days of the Sega Mega Drive. That said, this is a nostalgic blast, even if the final boss will make your rage-bleed from your eyes. Those with a calm disposition should give it a go, especially seeing as GetGamesGo are have knocked 75% off their price. For the rest of us, keep your fingers crossed Sega remake the two player World of Illusion without trying to use their imagination as much.

Thanks to jaystan.

Lego Hobbit on Vita is a steal at £7.95

Fancy reliving the Hobbit movies in Lego form and pandering to your obsessive nature over in-game collectibles? Then be sure to pick up Lego The Hobbit on your PS Vita for just £7.95.

The latest Lego effort is one of the more rushed efforts from the overworked Traveller's Tales studio, but it's much more appealing at this price. It's certainly worth a look if you're a series fan. The third film was supposed to be added as DLC when the final film hit cinemas, but has since been cancelled. There's still at least 30 hours of game here if you want to 100% it.
