Developer 10tons Ltd is teaching players that whenever life throws obstacles your way, it's best to simply use your head. The Finnish developer has announced that they're bringing their iOS and Vita puzzle game, King Oddball, to PS4 on April 1.

King Oddball centers around a giant head seeking to end the world through the use of his large cranium and elastic tongue. Players must press a button at the right moment to grab rocks with King Oddball's tongue, in order to swing him around and crush hapless enemies that stand in his way.

"After the first few levels, you'll need to crush more enemies than you have rocks for," 10tons' Jaakko Maaniemi said on PlayStation.Blog. "That, in turn, requires careful strategy and anticipation of how the chain reactions will unfold. We've tuned the physics model to pretty extreme accuracy, so relying solely on luck won’t work."

No price was given for the PS4 version of King Oddball, but Maaniemi did state that there would be a free trial available on release day.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
