Let's get on with it!
Love and Deepspace
It might be a challenge to find love in a hopeless place - or so they say - but with Zayne, Rafayel or Xavier, romance is definitely in the cards even when you're battling interstellar threats across the infinite vastness of space. Love and Deepspace, as the title suggests, combines romance and cosmic combat into a gorgeous semi-realistic 3D experience, where you'll wield the power of your Evol skills to ward off enemy Wanderers and save the human race.
Of course, fighting alongside you are the aforementioned Deepspace Hunters (and highly eligible bachelors) you can get to know as you progress through the game, all while the world-famous musician Sarah Brightman serenades you with her vocal prowess as heard on the game's official soundtrack.
Combining the most addictive elements of match-3 games and poker, Solquence tasks you with placing cards across a grid in attempts to clear the board - the twist is that you'll have to do so to cheat Death itself, which certainly raises the stakes higher than ever.
The game also lets you earn special cards as you climb the levels without a time limit, as well as five skins to tinker around with. You won't need to have an Internet connection to enjoy the game, either, so if you're looking for an offline time-waster, this might just be your cup of tea.
AEW: Rise to the Top
While we can't all rampage around chucking chairs at people or pinning them to the ground as the crowds scream our name, we can certainly simulate some form of that chaotic thrill with AEW: Rise to the Top. This idle game-slash-management sim lets you unlock your favourite All Elite Wrestling icons and send them off to battle across a variety of game modes.
As you clear goals throughout your matches, you can unlock exclusive in-game goodies at the Main Event, upgrade your wrestlers, and take down foes in thrilling PvP.
Flaunting your inner fashionista has never been more realistic with FashionVerse, letting you flex your fabulous talent as a top stylist. You'll have the freedom to style your clients from runway-ready looks to red-carpet trendsetters, all presented with AI-enhanced 3D visuals that you can share and vote on with the gaming community.
With this new Netflix title, you can build your closet and boost your collection across a diverse catalogue. In the "Stylist Classic" mode, you can progress through your stylist career with fashion challenges, while the "Trendsetter Classic" mode lets you experiment with different mood boards depending on your imagination.
Art of Rally
From snow-capped hills to vast farmlands that glow golden with the sunset, art of rally's stylised environments might just make you want to stop and stare at the beauty around you. You'll have to breeze past these gorgeous surroundings to get the best of your foes though, because nabbing the top spot in the leaderboards is everything when the art of rally is involved.
The game features a variety of driving modes as well as fan-fave rally driving tricks, plus iconic vehicles from the 60s to Group B. There are different daily and weekly challenges to aim for as well for the ultimate bragging rights.
