But until then and while you probably have a ton of games to play, especially after Christmas, we’ve got a few more PlayStation 5 games to share with you. These are the 10 best PS5 games you might not even have heard of until today, or the ones you haven’t jumped into. What are you waiting for ? These hidden gems are all worth more than your time!

Pumpkin jack

Whether you’re a Halloween fan or not, Pumpkin Jack is definitely a game to watch. It is a scary 3D platformer game that may seem a bit familiar. Maybe that’s because he shares a name with the famous character from The Nightmare Before Christmas, you know, the King of Halloween. It’s colorful, full of head-scratching puzzles and tough fights. According to publisher Headup Games, Pumpkin Jack is a cross between MediEvil and Jax & Dexter, so you know it’s going to be a fun time. Add all that to his average Metacritic Score of 76% and there’s not much else to say.


If you’ve been a fan of the longtime Pokémon franchise, you’ll likely fall in love with Temtem. This is an MMO role-playing game developed by the Spanish studio Crema that allows everyone to become a Temtem tamer. You’ll explore multiple islands and discover new species, while making friends throughout your trip. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Just like Pokémon, you’ll catch Temtems, battle other Tamers, and trade with your friends to defeat 8 Dojo Leaders. Your real goal is to become Temtem’s ultimate tamer. And now you can have an experience similar to the adorable Nintendo games on PS5. Which seems very sweet to me.



Roki, from UK developer Polygon Treehouse, is an adventure puzzle game set in a snowy world. You play as a young Tove who is on a journey to find her lost brother and save his family from a monster named Roki. It’s a game rich in Scandinavian folklore and the storytelling will immerse you in its magic from the start. Roki is beautiful and sad, but accessible to everyone. It’s really no wonder it’s ranked so high on Metacritic with a score of 85%.


Bonfire peaks

Just as Roki can be a game of loss, Bonfire peaks is a puzzle game about closure. It’s simple and refreshing. In fact, the main objective of each level is to climb the ruins, solve the puzzle, and set your items on fire. It seems like the perfect game to get you through a great loss in your life. With over 200 puzzles designed with care and attention, this world of retro voxel art created by Pipe Push Paradise and Corey Martin, is very rewarding. It’s hard to say otherwise when Bonfire Peaks is rated 88% on Metacritic!

Solar ash

Solar Ash comes from the creators of the award-winning Hyper Light Drifter title, Heart Machine. It is a new adventure platform game that explores important themes to move on from devastating life events and traumas. You will play as Rei, a Voidrunner who tries to save her planet from monsters. Be ready for intense, high-speed boss fights in the Ultravoid. With bursts of color, smooth and fun movements, and well-suited music, Solar Ash is a complete experience that will leave everyone wanting more.
