So what is Tearaway? Built from the ground up, Tearaway takes advantage of the Vita's many unique capabilities (Rear Touch Pad, Camera, Touchscreen, Microphone, Gyroscope), warping them seamlessly into a truly unique platformer. Throughout the game's single player mode, you'll use everything at your disposal to navigate through various worlds, alternatively platforming through a brilliantly realized world. You play as one of two playable characters, off to deliver a message to the player outside of the game, YOU. Yes, you are one of the stars of the game. As you (literately) stare down on your messenger, you'll be defeating monsters, helping merge your world with Tearaway's own, creation and your imagination will constantly be on fire. Rest assured, everything about this game makes it easily one of the best games for the Vita yet.
This being a Media Molecule game, I'm pretty sure there is some about how the game succeeds on a visual and audio level, and it's amazingly successful.Read more ›
Like LittleBig Planet, Tearaway is a game that lives outside the box, requiring players of all ages to engage in many ways, not merely by hacking, slashing, and button-pushing. A significant part of the game play requires use of the rear and front touch panels, as well as pausing the game action for the player to make items from virtual construction paper to decorate various characters and other things along the journey. Many decorations are included, but if something isn't, just make it. These decorations work much like LBP's stamps, and can also be used to redecorate one's own character.
Other fun parts of the game include taking photos of plants, animals, and mummers (the people of the world in which the game takes place), and optionally uploading them to share on the Tearaway site, Facebook, and Twitter. Some specific photos even unlock paper craft projects that can be downloaded to print and construct. It may not be edutainment exactly, but it's one way for parents and their kids to spend more time together.
Game play isn't especially difficult, and the game is very forgiving when it comes to players who aren't the most adept at defeating the baddies. If you realize that you've missed something important, it is easy to go back and replay a chapter to get it, if your goal is 100% completion rather than simply finishing the game. However you choose to play, you will find this an unusual, unique, and highly entertaining game that is fun and appropriate for the entire family, from the hardcore gamers to the grandparents to the young kids.
There is no other game quite like it, everything is made of paper well except for You!
It seems to throw new Puzzles at you every other minute, which are solved in a flash, you wont linger to long looking for secrets either. The game utilizes every PS Vita feature, tilt/ dual cameras, touch/rear touch, microphone it's packed with variety in such a small package.
There is only a Story Mode in Tearaway, which is a huge letdown with Media Molecule's history of endless fun with the Little Big Planet series. You'll be beating the game in about 6 hours but the trophy challenges might extend that fun a few hours, levels are divided into "Bookmarks" they each have information on what items you've collected. I don't have it unlocked yet but it seems like it is an easy Platinum Trophy to obtain too which will make Trophy Hunters happy.
You can create costume pieces which is fun but can only keep about a dozen pieces at once, you'll have to delete the pieces to make more, though you can save costumes once they are done, no idea how many costumes you can save yet only created four, as far as I can tell you can't change the color of Iota's face or body, you can get rid of his face, his headband with leaf stays, the editor is too simplistic wish it would allow you to fold pieces and have a side monitor to show you what you are drawing since your finger is covering up what you are doing as you draw it.
I found myself taking a lot of selfies and landscape pictures with the in-game camera and taking screen shots with PS Vita's PS Button + Select, the game is too gorgeous.Read more ›
