Tearaway Unfolded - Analysis
As for these new features , the first that we will discover will be the possibility of lighting up the darkest rooms using the light bar that incorporates the Dualshock 4 . This time around, the pieces, who are the enemies of the game, have been endowed with a background in which their purpose is to end the colorful world of cardboard from Tearaway and instead replace it with nondescript newspaper. With this light that we have as the power of the You (the way in which Media Molecule broke the fourth wall and made us the protagonist of the game) we can recover the color on the scene and also hypnotize the evil bits.
The most platforming sections of the original were packed with items known as drum skins . These were activated by touching the rear panel to bounce our messenger Iota or Atoi. This intuitive way of providing the control of movement of our fingers has been adapted this time by pressing the button on the touch panel in a movement contrary to that shown on the screen ... but there was no other alternative. The touch panel is also used to stamp out our creations, one of the cases in which our creativity was put to the test. By replacing the use of the mat on the Vita touch screen with "drawing it" on the small panel of the Dualshock 4 a lot of precision is lost to create our cutouts and ornaments. But again ... there was no other.
To compensate certain drop-down elements that we removed as a sticker with our finger, the wind element has been introduced . By lightly touching the remote control's touch panel, you can redirect the air and thus reposition certain elements capable of movement. The air will even allow our protagonist messenger to create a paper airplane with which to provide a new possibility of movement in the gameplay of Tearaway, with sections in which to move using this fragile means of transport.
Finally, regarding the trunk of new forms of control, we can "put in command" certain elements spread across the stage. In a similar way to The Playroom and its robots, we can aim vertically so that we have a new inhabitant in the Dualshock and even pet it. The true usefulness of this feature is given by the possibility of later launching them on cracked surfaces to open new paths.
When it comes to developing the adventure, Tearaway Unfolded will be very familiar to us in terms of the most iconic places in the original and their established order. However, the levels have been completely redesigned to include new ways of dealing with them applied to the new controls and also new levels and completely new scenarios. The work in this sense is commendable, because although it is inevitable that everything sounds to us, at times it does seem like a new game, or at least one just as enjoyable for all those who already did it with the original.
Without being essential, the use of alternative peripherals such as the PlayStation Camera (with which to see our face as the sun of the game), the PlayStation app with which to decorate the stage with our own photos or the microphone so that our recordings put voice it only adds value to our characters with which to make the most of our investment in extras for PS4 (just as the original did with all the native features of Vita).
The duration will therefore be lengthened . Completing this new adventure and its levels never seen before can be done at 10-12 hours, and secondary activities such as collecting confetti, gifts or certain extra missions for blue gifts continue. Elements such as the internal camera with which Iota or Atoi photographs their world are also back, which will allow us to appreciate in greater detail the excellent and original visual section that Media Molecule created at the time.

Just like the first portable version from which it is taken, Tearaway Unfolded unfolds, leaflet after leaflet, as one of the most innocent, clear and engaging p...
The new paper jewel of Media Molecule will crumple your heart with its vibrant sweetness, with its exciting views and its adorable protagonists, exactly as it did on PS Vita in November 2013. Even, and without any metaphysical desire, it will bring you to reflect on the importance of life, love, friendship and many other things that we increasingly take for granted. It will do so in a candid and confusing way, canceling for a few hours any drive for hordes of zombies, anabolic soldiers and Destiny. Every glimpse of it is incredible Game Art, everything is covered by layers and layers ... and still other layers on layers of style, inventiveness and refined quality hand-chiseled.
Just as Tearaway managed to exploit every PS Vita technology with excellent ease (from the double camera to the touch screen / touch pad), the new Tearaway and its brand new paper adventures are aware of the player and manage to integrate it completely into the story thanks to the " powers "of the DualShock 4. As stated by the development team, the game has been rebuilt from scratch, expanded here and there with new characters, even wider settings, unpublished puzzles and, above all, with a new range of engaging, delicious and never too thoughtful (that is, never frustrating).
There is the controller light bar to make light in the darkest points, guide the Messenger into the unknown (by tilting the joypad in the desired direction) and hypnotize the evil papers, then the gusts of wind to unroll bridges or hurl the enemies down from the cliffs by simply sliding a finger on the touch pad, not to mention the possibility of flying with a paper plane and observing the world from above, or even the microphone that dispenses crackles, peals and bewitching paper noises.
But not only that, there are also the catapults (which literally play with the fourth wall and with whoever holds the joypad) and the drum skins to be used as trampolines, tapping with the fingers on the touch pad. The latter can (indeed, must!) Be exploited as a real artistic palette, drawing from time to time (we will have to take a little hand, given the small size) elements with which to give new life to the game world and its small inhabitants.
The news is not limited only to the DualShock 4, because there is also the Companion App, available for iOS, Android or PS Vita, to play in the company of a friend, a little brother or a son who wants to be useful by designing objects that will come to life within the game, or even substituting bizarre photographs of Vallecarta textures. Little thing in terms of gameplay, okay, but the smile effect is guaranteed. Finally, Tearaway Unfolded can also take advantage of the optional and not mandatory PlayStation Camera, to make the gaming experience even more similar to that for PS Vita: for those who have already played it in their time, for example, remember the emotion of the your face set in the sun?
The renewed version for PlayStation 4, which now boasts a much wider visual depth, a graphic engine with no slowdowns and strong sixty-strange frames per second (the effect is that of a sort of paradoxical stop-motion ... very fluid!) , unfolds with a story full of twists and unpublished narrative crossroads, new found and new ideas for gameplay. Generally speaking, the feeling is that the challenge rate of Tearaway Unfolded, compared to the original episode, has increased significantly. As if by magic, it has not become a demanding and demanding platformer, for heaven's sake, but you no longer have that precise sensation of interactive experience without challenge and not at all demanding in terms of attention and skill. There will be enemies to be eliminated with precise "war" tactics, platforms to be overcome with attention and patience, as well as particularly difficult passages in which you will fall countless times. But, as usual, don't worry: infinite lives and immediate restarts from the last checkpoint. Not to mention the new and much wider spaciousness of the rooms, to be explored in search of secrets, gifts, friendly four-legged friends and chatty characters, as well as unpublished puzzles, never seen on PS Vita, for a level design that knows no moments tired and, indeed, seems to want to amaze a little more every time.
Basically, the new Tearaway is no longer just a platform for children or a playful / artistic experience for adults, but a now more mature product, characterized by a much wider breath, capable of masterfully combining fun inside , challenge, tons of inspiration, visual joy and constant wonder. Ah, yes, an applause to the music: epic, lively, enchanting, which rejuvenate the soul and courage even in the face of the countless misfortunes you will have to fight against, curling up, rolling, blowing, moving. And in the end, all his agglomeration of rustling paper will end up constituting a delicious protection, enveloping and suspending the player in a vibrant world, which will keep all the alienations of the real world on the threshold of his eyes and ears. Which, as if by magic, will cease to exist for six, seven or even ten hours of enchantment and amazement.
I received a copy of the game from Sony, stored in the promotional package complete with a nice Papercraft DualShock 4 ... made of paper. To play Tearaway Unfolded, however, I used the traditional joypad supplied with PlayStation 4. I also experimented with the Companion App on PlayStation Vita and iPad with amusing results, embellishing the Festive Orchard, the snowy expanses of Colle Forca and the Calendimaggio fields with photos of Wookiee, relatives, friends and wives.
