10 Seconds to Win! (PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, X/S, PC)

Help a little athlete reach a trophy by running, leaping, wall climbing, and dashing in this 2D precision single screen platformer.  As if those types of games weren’t hard enough, now you must reach the trophy in 10 seconds or less!  The game is available on all current consoles and PC, but reviewed on PS4 here.

Move with the D-pad, jump with the X button, and dash with the square button.  If you hit a spike or don’t make it to the trophy in time, you must start the stage over again.  My main problem with this game is that the controls felt a little loose.  Early on there was a level I got stuck on, but once I figured out that you can dash diagonally, I managed to get past it and zip through the rest of the levels.  Yeah this is probably the first of these types of games I was able to finish and get the platinum trophy on.  Once you finish all 50 levels, you can do them again except they reverse where you and the trophy sits.  So I think they could’ve done a bit more with this one, too.

Kid Factor:

10 Seconds to Win! is rated E-10 with an ESRB descriptor of Fantasy Violence.  When you get hit by spikes, fall into a pit, or run out of time, you just dissolve into dots and float back to the starting point, and that’s it.  Reading skill isn’t needed, but younger gamers may find this one too difficult.
