Developed by Playdead and released in 2011 on the Xbox. Limbo is an adventure game made entirely in silhouettes. Limbo involves you to navigate the protagonist, which is an unnamed kid, through a forest and avoid getting an encounter with the giant spider who wants to kill him.It’s is an adventure that shouldn’t be missed. I suggest you to hook up a Ps4 controller to your phone or Tv to get the best possible experience.
Okay, so the first thing that came into my mind while playing this game was about its similarity with the Adult Swim produced ” Samurai Jack” that I used to love watching back in the day. The similarity continues with the design of the characters and the overall game design as well. The objective, however, is pretty simple throw spears on zombies before they infect you, after getting power-ups you even end up having three spears at the same time. This concept might sound old school or maybe even boring, but the character animation and sound design keep you hooked. A must download if you end up buying the play pass subscription.
5. Getting Over It With Bennet Foddy
It will be surprising if you don’t know about this one after all the hype on Youtube Live and Twitch about this game. This is supposed to be one of the hardest games to conquer. This the official port of the pc game with the same name. You play Diogenes who is stuck inside a metal cauldron and has a hammer. Our objective is to navigate him through the game by swinging the hammer and jumping through it. As much as I found it to be fun to play, it got to my nerves after a point of continuously coming back to the same location. Do check it out.
6. Hidden Folks
Hidden Folks as the name suggests is a monochrome art based puzzler in which you have to find hidden people from artwork by tapping on various elements. My favorite part about this game is the scale of which the artwork is made and the funny SFX which I suppose, is made entirely by the creators themselves. The game is hand-drawn and this uniqueness shows while playing it. Do give it a go if you crave some innovation in gaming.

7. Lumino City
Lumino City is one of the most innovative games that I have ever played. I was surprised to know that this game was entirely made on a real set made out of paper, card, wood, miniature lights and motors. Just like Monument valley
you follow your protagonist Lumi on a mission. The mission here is to follow a series of clues to power his grandfather’s house. The story and gameplay are the highlights of this game and you will be in awe of the paper style game design.

8. Stardew Valley
This one is another console port for android. Stardew Valley is a cute farming simulator that was a hit back in the day when it released on console. While playing this game your main objective is to Farm, Fish, Mine and do other normal things like dating. The more you play the more you will love it. I end up playing it for more than 30 hours and the excitement is just like it used to be with Clash of Clans back in the day.

9. Wayward Souls
Wayward souls is one hell of a unique game in the sense that it is the only one out of the whole list that was initially made for a mobile platform (iOS) and later on ported to console platforms like PS4 and Steam. This is a pixel art game in which you play one of the 6 characters whose motive is to pass through a dungeon full of enemies. The combat involved combo attacks and melee attacks in the form of ranged and power attacks. Do give this unique game a shot.
