Lumines | £9.97 | Amazon | PS Vita

Anyone that played Lumines on the PSP will be able to tell you that it was the best block puzzler on the handheld by some distance and it's no surprise that the latest iteration on the PS Vita is able to take the crown too. This is the cheapest I've seen the game yet and should be picked up by anyone keen to avoid their Vita gathering dust. The premise is simple, create matching squares of four or more by rotating and dropping blocks and setting them down before a scrolling lines clears away any groups you've piled up. Simple, but once you get your rhythm going, games can last over an hour. Stages change on the fly with different sounds, colours and line speeds keeping the experience fresh. It's the only puzzler you'll ever need.

Lumines | £9.99 | Grainger Games | Vita

The formula has barely changed since the original PSP game, which is exactly why you should buy Lumines for your Vita. For all you lucky newbies, the game task you with rotating falling cubes to create squared groups of colour before a scrolling line clears them away. Different stages feature different speeds, colours and sounds to accompany your actions. You won't find a game you'll lose more hours to on your Vita. A word of warning about Grainger Games though, they've been known to send out American copies of games, despite advertising a UK box on the site. Your Vita is multi-region, but if you're like me you might prefer a UK copy.

Lumines: Electronic Symphony | £14.86 | ShopTo | PS Vita

PSP fans went mad for Lumines when it released years ago, and Electronic Symphony is another great puzzle game from the developers behind Rez and Child Of Eden. It's a blissful, occasionally stressful, experience that thrives on impeccable art and sound design, with crisp graphics complimented by the Vita's clear screen and processing power. Now that The Game Collection are out of stock, ShopTo will save you a a fiver of quid compared to the Hut and Zavvi. Thanks to tim8871 at HotUKDeals.

Child Of Eden | £5.00 | Asda Direct | Xbox 360

If you missed out on last week’s excellent deal from Amazon, here’s a second chance to pick up Child Of Eden for a fiver. This time it’s Asda Direct providing the saving, with a price difference of over a fiver separating it from Amazon.

The low price mark makes it a more attractive purchase to balance the game’s short length and replay value, but its visuals and soundtrack are great stuff. Those looking for something different could find themselves having some fun in the neon-infused title. Thanks to Jas10 @ HUKD!

Unfortunately, despite its beauty Child Of Eden's over far too quickly. There's plenty of replay value though so you'll more than likely jump back into it to pick up a few more achievements or to completely purge Project Lumi from the virus that's attacking it, provided you don't go into sensory overload of course! Amazon are parting with Xbox 360 copies of the game for £5 which is an absolute steal and should save you almost £5 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo.

Child Of Eden is astounding. Like the cult classic Rez before it, Mizuguchi's masterpiece blends visuals, music, organic SFX and vibration into one gorgeous package; rife with hidden symbolism and non-traditional storytelling. The PS3 version includes tight Move support, which is a lot more precise that Kinect's already-impressive control method. Amazon and Play.com are, as always, brawling over who can give it away for less.

If you have a Kinect sensor, then you should buy Child Of Eden. It's that simple. Q Entertainment's latest shooter is a visual, audial and gameplay masterpiece that features tight Kinect controls and beautiful vistas. It doesn't quite reach the giddy heights of its predecessor, Rez, thanks to a fairly overt take on its storyline and themes (and it doesn't have Fear Is The Mind Killer by Adam Freeland) -  but it is a unique and truly wonderful experience.

ASDA Entertainment have a phenomenally cheap price that only appears when you add the product to your basket!

Here's a nice cross-platform price for Child Of Eden, which you should go ahead and buy immediately.

Any misgivings about its small number of highly replayable levels melt away at this price.

Child of Eden | £11.99 (With Code) | Play | PS3

While Xbox 360 owners have been waving their arms to this one for a few months already, PS3 owners finally got their version of Child of Eden last month so they could do the same (but with Move controllers in their hands.) Thanks to Play’s 48 hour special deal with a special code, you can get a copy for the cheapest price yet, and save yourself £3 in comparison to the next best deal over at Base and its affiliates. The low price mark may well make it a more attractive purchase to balance the title’s short length and replay value, but its visuals and soundtrack are great stuff. Those looking for something different could find themselves having some fun in the neon-infused title. Also, it comes with a free t-shirt for you to wear, which is nice. Thanks to radael @ HUKD!

One of the main reasons I wanted Kinect was to play Child Of Eden and having now played it I think it's a game that everyone should check out at least once. Sadly, whilst the game's fantastic to look at and listen to, it's incredibly short and chances are you probably won't give it a second look after you've reached the end. Play are parting with Xbox 360 copies of the game for £14.99, which'll save you almost £2 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo. Thanks to spaceghost @ HUKD.

Chances are if you bought Kinect it was because of this game, and if you've got Kinect and haven't picked this one up, why not? Are you mad? It's a visual treat for your eyes and ears unlike any computer game I've seen in the past, and you'll find yourself getting pulled into it instantly. Unfortunately, it's a bit on the short side and there isn't a co-op mode, or any multiplayer modes, but despite these facts it really is a game you have to experience for yourself, so don't wait any longer head on over to ShopTo and pick up your copy for £19.85, which'll save you over £3 on the next best offers.

Just when we thought that pre-order prices couldn't get any lower for Child Of Eden's optimised PS3 version, Play.com have stormed out with a sub-£15 offering that even comes with a free T-shirt. In case you don't know, it's Q Entertainment's spiritual sequel to Rez, and an incredible synesthesia experience that blends eyepopping visuals, music and player-generated SFX. If you're excited about getting it on PS3 - and you probably should be - it might be worth changing your pre-order or taking a punt before the prices start to rise again.

Child Of Eden is the spiritual successor to Rez; an orgy of light, sounds and non-traditional storytelling that merges all of the senses together. PS3 owners will have to wait a little longer for the optimised port, and if you're looking for a preorder, Amazon are absolutely smashing it with a £19.99 guaranteed price.

Tom recently awarded a worthy 8/10 score to the Xbox 360 version, praising its sheer beauty but taking issue with value for money. At less than £20, though, it's a fairly moot point.

2011 is set to be a thoroughly outstanding year for gamers, but one of the most important titles of the year isn't going to scream for your attention with explosive trailers and gravelly-voiced cutscenes. Rather, the long-awaited Child Of Eden from Tetsuya Mizuguchi's Q Entertainment will seductively purr at you with jawdropping visuals, conceptual music and thoughtful symbolism that belies the accessible gameplay mechanics. Put simply, it will greatly enrich your life more than any multiplayer FPS ever could.

To this end, let's take a look at how Child Of Eden is shaping up, as well as what we can expect from the experience.

The Premise: Synesthesia

child of eden virus missile

You must have played Rez to begin with. Or nothing that follows will seem wondrous. - Charles Dickens (allegedly)

Rez gave us our first taste of Synesthesia when it hit the Dreamcast in 2001. This powerful word describes a condition where senses become mixed up and jumbled together, becoming indistinguishable from each other and allowing the subject to literally see sound. Obvious parallels to certain illegal substances aside, this was achieved by each and every player action adding notes or sound effects to the musical accompaniment, which grew organically across the levels. Liberal use of controller vibration (as well as a worryingly sexual peripheral on the PS2) provided the tactile aspect.

In terms of game mechanics, Child Of Eden will will remain much the same as its beloved predecessor- which is to say that it's essentially a rail shooter in the style of Panzer Dragoon and Afterburner. Retro shooter fans will already be au fait with Paint and Release mechanics, which require players to control an on-screen reticule that also moves the character around the screen.

This may sound just a tad simplistic and overly similar to Rez, but Child Of Eden will use this accessible gameplay mechanic to elevate Synesthesia to a whole new level.
