With PlayStation Mobile now well and truly underway, the PS Minis section is looking a little forlorn. Will the platform now see a decline in the face of something that's clearly better equipped to deal with consumers?

We hope not, since the PS Minis section of the PlayStation Store is the perfect place for new studios to try outside-the-box ideas.

Take Feisty Feet, for example. It's hugely entertaining, but rather thin on content. Hopefully we'll see it grow into something bigger for a larger platform.

The snow has been falling, presenting the perfect opportunity for a sort of snowfight/race mash-up. Feisty Feet is a two-button game about racing for the finish while also watching out while your competitors throw snowballs at the back of your head.

As the pack runs from left to right you can throw snowballs to slow down your opponents, or even switch places with them if you pick up some special snow.

For the main part, however, Feisty Feet focuses on speed and agility. There are platforms to jump across and pits to dodge, and keeping up with the action is all that counts.

It's all rather entertaining, especially as you begin to use cash from your winnings to purchase upgrades. Sure, falling down a pit and essentially losing the whole race can be a nuisance, but since it's so easy to quickly restart the race the potential frustration is pretty much removed.

Once you've completed the main championship you unlock the best part of the game. Marathon mode asks you to overtake 50 runners and get to the front of the pack in as short a time as possible. It's immensely fun, if short-lived.

Footfall

Actually, speaking of short-lived action, that's Feisty Feet's main issue - its brevity.

You can complete the main competition in 20 minutes, and you'll have destroyed Marathon many times over ten minutes later. There are achievements to collect, but overall there's very little content for your buck.

There really needs to be more to it - more expansion on the base concept, more power-up types, more game modes, and more everything, really. Some character customisation, and social elements like online leaderboards, wouldn't hurt either.

Feisty Feet is a tangle of great ideas bound together by solid execution - but this is more of a prototype than a full game. Here's hoping developer iSquared Games takes it further and gives us a meatier experience soon.

Feisty Feet provides a solid base for something fantastic, but fails to bring everything required to the table
