Games you can play this week – elephants and elegance

Tembo the Badass Elephant

This week, gamers won’t be getting very many physical releases, but the digital games hitting PSN, Xbox Live and PC outlets deserve your attention.

Prepare for a warrior elephant, some fantastical drama and a beloved classic PS3 adventure making a reappearance on the PS4.

Journey – July 21

(PS4)

The unique and award-winning PS3 game Journey is coming to PS4 this week.

While already stunning on the PS3, Journey on PS4 will enjoy gorgeous 1080p visuals making the breathtaking game even more captivating and arresting.

Thankfully, the PS4 version is cross-buy. Anyone who purchased the game digitally on PS3 will get the PS4 upgrade for free.

If you haven’t played Journey yet then this is a perfect opportunity. It’s a game that will hit you right in the feels while showing you that a game doesn’t need a complex and action-packed premise to be entertaining.

Tembo the Badass Elephant – July 21

(PS4, Xbox One, PC)

There’s been a serious lack of African animals starring in video games, but Tembo the Badass Elephant is here to bring some colour, fun and chaos to gamers this week.

This cute-looking 2D action-platformer throws you into the hooves of Tembo, who as the title explains is a badass, and he’s taking no prisoners as he tackles an invading military.

Armed with heavy weaponry, his trunk and a Rambo-inspired bandana, Tembo must run through Shell City to wipe out the Phantom Army.

Tembo has many different abilities and manoeuvres with which to make it through the game’s levels, as well as the aid of a bird named Picolo.

The game features 18 different levels, an array of bosses to take on and a number of additional objectives to complete.
