Papa & Yo

31 January 2013
  • Excerpt: There's been a lot of talk about the video game industry growing up lately, but in reality few games have even attempted to tackle an issue of any real weight. Papo & Yo is one of the first to explore a specific issue and it not only handles it with an understated dignity, but makes for a delightful and enriching experience at the same time.

Dramatic and affecting puzzler about alcoholism and abuse.

Common Sense Media
26 September 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Papo & Yo is a puzzle and platformer game without much violence, but that it carries some mature themes that may trouble younger kids. It is an autobiographical game that serves as a metaphor for abuses suffered by its designer as a child at the hands of his alcoholic father.

  • Conclusion: Papo & Yo is a title of binary worth; not worth ignoring its issues, but still worth seeing through. While the trip it takes to reach the emotional highs of the story’s payoff is indefensibly turbulent, there’s no denying that they are indeed dizzying.

  • Excerpt: There are many games that are easily forgettable but Papo & Yo is not one of them. Papo & Yo will grab you by the heart within minutes of playing and never let go. It is safe to say that this title is one of the most personal games you will ever play. Creative director Vander Caballero uses the game as a metaphor for his own personal childhood story.

  • Conclusion: (Editor di IGN), in Papo & Yo, ci ha sempre creduto fortissimo, fin da quando l'ha visto per la prima volta all'E3 2011. E infatti ci è rimasto un po' male, guarda.

5 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Spel – ett sätt att hantera en ful verklighet? Papo & Yo försöker skaka om med en obehaglig blandning av ångest, missbruk och missade möjligheter.
  • Pros: Udda och intressant spelidé, Ett seriöst försök att spela på känslor
  • Cons: Förvånansvärt buggigt, Fixar inte riktigt de höga ambitionerna

Expert Review

GameTV
21 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Como seria se O Labirinto do Fauno fosse concebido como um jogo de videogame? Teria funcionado tão bem quanto o filme? Onde Vivem os Monstros é um livro infantil que coube com maestria nos cinemas, mas pode ser considerado uma grandissíssima exceção. Quando algo já nasce emoldurado em uma mídia pré-estabelecida, o resultado final é, no mínimo, eficaz.
  • Cons: Muito curto, Controles imprecisos, Repleto de problemas técnicos, Puzzles simples demais
