RadarPlays - Harmful Park

Little-known fact: ice cream doubles as an incredibly deadly weapon (and not just against the lactose intolerant). Also, jellybeans have homing properties when hurled at an enemy. At least, that's what we've been led to believe after playing Harmful Park, a shmup that's as colorful as it is crazy (and available for purchase using some Japanese PSN trickery). Join Lucas, Henry, and Brian as they channel their inner anime girl and blast waves of theme park attendees and devious monkeys into smithereens. Somewhere throughout this madness, they also manage to crash a wedding and witness a hippo with a peculiar mouth inhabitant.

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!
