Riptide GP: Renegade and Chime Sharp – the latest games you should play this weekend

The latest collection of titles to land in the Windows Store will help you pass the time this weekend.

From blasting through urban river race courses at breakneck speeds in Riptide GP: Renegade, to soothing synth tunes in Tetris-like puzzler Chime Sharp, entertainment is just a few clicks away.

Riptide GP: Renegade

You are a future hydrojet rider, and knocks and scrapes be damned. Cast out from the Riptide GP league, you’re forced to race illegally through city waterways, flooded ruins and churning factory machinery in an effort to reclaim your reputation and your title. Play through the single player career to unlock new vehicles, playable characters, and customization features, then take your skills online to battle opponents around the world – and remember to mind your head.

Chime Sharp

Place pieces, paint the board, make music and, ultimately, relax. Rotate shapes to cover a grid while a beatline reads those shapes as notes, and as you cover the board, the music builds to a beautiful crescendo of your own making. Think a cross between Tetris, a music sequencer and a hypnotic dream about your favourite pop song, and you’re on the right track.

form.8

forma.8 greets players with striking visuals and a huge world to explore. You take control of a small exploration probe called forma.8, which is stranded alone on the surface of an alien planet. Separated from your companions by accident, you have a life or death mission to complete: find and recover a lost, powerful energy source before it’s too late. Gain new power-ups to progress, fight deadly enemies and face powerful bosses – not bad for a floating sphere.

A Pixel Story

In a world hidden deep inside your computer, an unlikely hero is about to appear, created from none other than the Pong ball. A tale of platforms and perils; of magical teleporting hats and sarcastic software; of thieving seagulls and maniacal operators, this is no ordinary fairytale. Packed with challenging platforming, devious traps, clever puzzles and tongue-in-cheek humour, A Pixel Story is a journey through gaming history that’ll test your skill as much as it makes you smile. Save the system… save the world.
