The exorbitant cost of Vita memory cards means you're generally much better off buying games retail than downloading them, but this shooter -- only available via download -- is well worth the memory. Its controls are instantly accessible and it's easy to get hooked on its simple but challenging play. Plus, its explosive visual design and pounding music are a treat for both eyes and ears.

It won't take most players too long to work through all five planets, and the mini-games don't add a lot to the experience (they're more like quick tech demos -- one simply involves destroying asteroids by pinching them using the front and rear touch surface). However, it costs just $10, and the replay value is terrific for players who take satisfaction in working toward higher scores.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
