Electronic Entertainment Expo [E3] 2013 Feature

E3 2013 Awards – Best PS Vita Game

With 85 PlayStation Vita games in development, owners of Sony’s handheld are going to have a diverse range of titles to choose from that span across multiple genres before the end of the year.

Media Molecule’s quirky and inventive adventure platform game is one of them and it’s no surprise as the development team were the brains behind the incredibly creative LittleBigPlanet.

In Tearaway, players control a paper-covered elk who needs a new skin. You bounce around colourful 3D levels like a traditional platfomer, though there’s nothing at all traditional about the control scheme which is what really sets Tearaway apart.

Touchscreen integration is excellent and intuitive with one of our favourite moments being able to use the back touchpad to seemingly poke your fingers into the game environment to kill enemies.

With all the great touches, such as customisation, eye-catching animation and innovative level design that we’d expect from the team at Media Molecule, it’s clear Tearaway is going to be a lot of fun to play and one of the most unique games to grace Vita this year.
