Chronovolt isn't anything new, but does have a nice mix of ideas that should keep the game fresh.

Chronovolt appears to be a ball-rolling puzzle-platformer with a strong steam-punk art style and a time-travelling plot. It's unclear as yet how the uncomplicated process of rolling a ball around will lead on to strong narrative and characters, but nevertheless the elements are in place and look striking.

The game will also feature a time-travel mechanic in which the player can reverse time, presumably to overcome puzzles and correct mistakes, in the manner made popular by Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

While neither ball-rolling puzzlers nor time-travel mechanics are an entirely new premise, it is interesting to see these features combined and I'll be curious enough to see how well Chronovolt plays when it is eventually available.

This is Playerthree's first major downloadable title after some experience with Playstation Minis and looks to be a strong Vita debut for the studio.

Chronovolt is currently planned for release on the Playstation Vita in the summer of 2012.

Sinan Kubba writes the Returning Gamer column.

"As an 80s kid I was obsessed with gaming. But university, stress and life relegated my hobby to the backseat. After years in the wilderness, I'm back into video games. I don't just want to play games that remind of a happy youth though. I'm just as excited about games that take things forward, experiences that re-ignite that curiosity and fascination I had years ago."

Here are the games I've been playing recently:

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
