Tearaway is a game that a lot of people either like or just don’t know what to expect. When I walked into PAX on day one, I said to myself “Tearaway is the first game to play” – and that’s exactly what I did.

The first thing I noticed (and the screenshots speak for themselves) was just how vibrant and colorful the world is. Running around as Iota felt natural and left me with a smile on my face as I discovered new things. Media Molecule (the people behind the LittleBigPlanet franchise) have decided to take  a different direction and a lot of people didn’t seem to like it. Well one thing I have to say to them is watch out, because MM knows exactly what they’re doing. Tearaway feels great, looks beautiful and is full of life. I was already excited for this game before playing it and now I’m even more excited afterwards. They use the back touchpad and front touchscreen quite intuitively, it feels natural to push your finger through the back or unwrap a present by pulling the bow apart with the front.

The delay of the game in my eyes is a good thing as there was some issues I seen with touch input. Keep in mind that this was a preview build, so it may not represent the final product.

Keep an eye out for this game!  Like I said above, Media Molecule know what their doing so don’t count Tearaway out.

Tyler Olthoff is a 24 year old who has been gaming since he can remember. In love with almost all types of games, the only type he can't stand (and that's probably because he sucks at it) is fighting games. His favorite genres would have to be shooters, RPGs, and adventure games. He owns almost every new system out there including PS4, PS3, XB1, PSVita and the 3DS, but barely plays any of them as it's mainly his good old Vita getting the attention!

    Mucho thanx for the impressions and preview Tyler! The game is looking great! It would seem to have the most innovative use of the Vita’s touch feature set, even more so than Gravity Rush. Needless to say, it’s a title I’m really looking forward to!

    So many great games heading to the Vita this fall and yuletide season! How will I ever be able to afford all the ones that I want?! Anyone willing to donate to the cause will have my heartfelt thanx!
