Little Deviants[2] is an arcade game that was developed by Bigbig Studios for the PlayStation Vita. Little Deviants is possibly Bigbig's last game since Sony Computer Entertainment announced the studio's possible closure on 10 January 2012.[3] The game was released on 17 December 2011 in Japan, 15 February 2012 in North America, and 22 February 2012 in Europe as a launch title for the PlayStation Vita. Little Deviants is composed of 30 minigames that make use of the Vita's front multitouch touchscreen, rear multitouch touchpad, SIXAXIS motion controls, and augmented reality capabilities, along with traditional controls.

Gameplay[edit]

The goal of Little Deviants is to play through the game's 30 minigames in order to rebuild the Little Deviants' spaceship, which was destroyed by the Botz.

The game's minigames take advantage of the PlayStation Vita's front touchscreen, rear touchpad, SIXAXIS motion controls, rear camera, and augmented reality capabilities.
