We crown our favourite game of this year's trade and consumer show in Germany.
Joe Danger: The Movie
Joe Danger, a downloadable title released on PSN in 2010, never got the attention it deserved. The debut effort from independent Guildford studio Hello Games was a cheery and sweet racer, to the point it even had grinning smiles beaming from background scenery, and quite possibly the happiest game of 2010.
The sequel, currently being developed for unannounced platforms, looks to inject more versatility into the core mechanics by placing adaptable stuntman Joe Danger on different vehicles and having him drive through a multitude of movie sets. Underneath its breezy exterior lies a game obsessed with compulsive score runs and joyous collectible gathering, with one minecart level in particular forcing us into a divine loop of botch jobs and ego-sapping restarts. Bliss.
