Why should you play it on PS Vita?
The thing about Thomas Was Alone is that it isn't very long. Even with around 100 levels, it can be completed within a few hours. What this does allow is for it to be played in short bursts, something the Vita is great for.
The Vita is also great for image quality and graphics, which are very simplistic but do look great thanks to the Vita's excellent screen. It is possible to complete the game in one sitting too but you then end up draining the Vita's battery completely. Thomas Was Alone on PS Vita is simply a joy to play with the top notch narration, or commentary. You can listen to creator Mike Bithell talk about each level and the making of it, or about how one level is known as Robert Downey Jr's level because he was watching an obscure movie with the Iron Man star in it when making a particular level. Simply put, if you want to be engaged in a story with some quadrilaterals like you never thought you could then play Thomas Was Alone.
