Putty Squad for PlayStation 4
All to often in the video game industry, innovative and original games and concepts wind up lost to time, sometimes halfway through, sometimes before the project enters production, and sadly, sometimes, just before the project is finished and ready for release. Putty Squad, a game that started development for the Amiga 500 in 1994, was one such game, with versions for the Mega Drive and PC DOS also slated for release in '95, before quietly wafting away into the annals of history after a few demo releases and some magazine coverage. However, in 2014, this updated remake of the game came out for the PS4 after some teasing a couple of years prior. Putting you in the role of an amorphous blue blob, Putty Squad gives you the task of rescuing other bits 'n blobs over the course of a variety of imaginative levels, aided by abilities gifted to you by your globular form, such as stretching sideways to go faster, stretching upwards to climb, and morphing into a fist to attack enemies.
