April 1st is quickly becoming a jam packed release date as 10tons Ltd has today announced their physics based Angry Birds-style Vita puzzler King Oddball is also coming to PS4. Along with the full game, there will be a free trial to get a feel for what it would be like to sling boulders from your Gene Simmons tongue.

Not much is mentioned along the lines of what exactly is so very unique within this PS4 version except maybe that the physics have been tweaked to exacting measures. I’d love to tell you that it’s guaranteed to be 1080p at 60fps, but I’m doubtful these stats would impact gameplay at all.

Ben L. reviewed King Oddball and gave the original Vita version a 2.5 out of 5 star rating. When speaking on the difficulty of the physics-based mechanics, he says:

It’s a physics game, so there’s often situations where the landing of your stones feels more like luck than it does any sort of individual skill, with the difference between pressing the button a tenth of a second later often feeling like the needless difference between missing and taking out half the targets in one shot.

I’ve personally enjoyed the game quite a bit and appreciate 10tons’ quality ports from their mobile games portfolio. Have you played the Vita version of King Oddball at all? Share your thoughts about the game in the comments below…
