Review: Tearaway is the best fall game you probably won’t play

By Chad Sapieha

Tearaway is probably the most fun you can have on a PlayStation Vita.

A beautiful papercraft-themed platformer, it’s the natural next step for Media Molecule (the folks behind the unfailingly fun LittleBigPlanet games for PlayStation 3 and PSP), successfully transporting the British game maker’s winning formula of physics-based running and jumping action from two dimensions to three while maintaining a focus on creativity.

The game casts you – and I literally mean you, as in you frequently appear via live video (thanks to the Vita’s front camera) – as a kind of sun-like deity that floats in the heavens above a land of paper creatures.

One of these paper denizens is an envelope-headed messenger named Iota – Atoi, if you prefer a female. He is quite aware (and even a bit scared) of the mysterious “You” floating in the sky above him, knows that his purpose is to ferry a message to someone somewhere, and desperately seeks to understand the meaning of it all.

So he sets off on a quest to find answers and deliver his message. He travels through a beautiful land of papery stuff that has been folded, rolled, and pasted into forms resembling trees, rocks, buildings, animals, and even the occasional monster, while helping the various creased and crinkled creatures he encounters along the way.
