Papa & Yo

ablegamers.com
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
27 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.

Papo & Yo

DarkStation
5 September 2012
  • 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.

Papo & Yo

BioGamer Girl
14 August 2012
  • 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.

Quel mostro di Papo & Yo

IGN
4 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Il voto di Papo & Yo che si trova in calce all'articolo non è indicativo proprio di un bel nulla, tanto più che potrebbe benissimo essere uno zero spaccato o addirittura un dieci: non fa differenza alcuna. Del resto, si può dire che Papo & Yo non sia neppure un videogioco in senso stretto, ma una qualche sorta di impalcatura o struttura – talvolta traballante e mai troppo appagante – concepita da Vander Caballero (il producer) per sorreggere ed espiare i suoi dolorosi...

Test : Papo & Yo (PC)

Gamekult.com
1 May 2013
  • Summary: Parfois maladroit dans sa mise en scène et encore un peu dans son exécution technique, Papo & Yo arrive cependant à capter toute l'attention du joueur pendant un peu plus de trois heures - sans chercher à gonfler artificiellement sa durée de vie - pour mieux délivrer un message sans ambiguïté sur une enfance maltraitée.
  • Pros: Sujet lourd et délicat..., Un imaginaire fort, L'ambiance sonore, Plusieurs paysages saisissants, Une fin qui prend aux tripes
  • Cons: ...pas toujours traité avec délicatesse, Encore quelques soucis techniques, Les phases de plate-forme pas optimales

Papo & Yo

Gamereactor
11 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Det känns trist när ett spel som Papo & Yo inte räcker till hela vägen. Väldigt trist, till och med. Ambitionerna med storyn i detta spel (signerat indiestudion Minority) är nämligen precis vad spelmediet behöver. Här möts vi av en vuxen, rätt tragisk historia om tioårige pojken Quico som tar sin tillflykt till en fantasivärld efter att verkligheten med en missbrukande pappa blir för otäck.
  • Pros: Originell och vuxen story, bitvis riktigt stämningsfullt
  • Cons: Trista pusselpartier, hackande tempo, oprecis spelkontroll
