Papo & Yo

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Imagination is a remarkable thing, especially when wielded by a child. It can make a house sprout wings, bring a toy to life, and turn mundane objects into mystical things. As children, our imagination is where we went to feel empowered; any child can develop magical powers or become an intergalactic hero, no matter what their real life is like.

Papo & Yo review (PC)

GamesRadar
18 April 2013
  • Conclusion: "It’s a little like My Neighbor Totoro if it was set in a South American slum instead of bucolic Japan." "Your brain won’t be incredibly taxed by the puzzles...but the game moves at the right pace considering that the plot is what’s most important here.
  • Pros: Vibrant, crisp visuals, Imaginative puzzle designs, A welcome approach to a mature topic
  • Cons: Relatively brief, Simplistic puzzles, Little replayability

Review: Papo & Yo successfully takes its sad tale about child abuse to PC

GameZone
23 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Physical abuse is one of the worst things that a kid could ever possibly go through. When that physical abuse is at the hands of a loved one, the emotional and psychological effects can be drastic, taking an immense toll on the child. Papo & Yo attempts to tackle the subjects of child abuse and addiction through fantastical imagery and metaphor.

Papo & Yo

Strategy Informer
22 September 2012
  • Conclusion: It's really difficult to focus on the lesser aspects of a game like Papo & Yo , one of the most inventive and interesting games in recent memory. The puzzles are consistently enjoyable, while the narrative undercutting this fantasy world is truly heartbreaking. It's hard not to be slightly disappointed with the lack of polish though, technical bugs and problems appearing far too often.

Review: Papo & Yo

New Gamer Nation
7 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Not too long into the game, you meet the Monster, a manifestation of an abusive father. Lured along by coconuts and enraged when eating frogs, the Monster is a complicated creature. At times docile, even sleeping, and at others, intent on chasing http://creditnoproblems.com/post/how-to-get-loan-with-bad-credit-0b.html

Papo & Yo (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
24 August 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s difficult to discuss Papo & Yo without talking about the game’s creator, Vander Caballero. He grew up with an alcoholic father who was abusive to Caballero and his siblings. His only escape was playing with toys and games to take his focus off of the painful reality that he had to endure. This is what Papo & Yo is about at its core.

Papo & Yo review

GameZone
21 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony’s done pretty good with its PSN Play program thus far.  While The Expendables 2 left a lot to be desired (we’d rather watch the movie again, honestly), Sound Shapes more than covered the slack with excellent gameplay and a soundtrack that we’re still humming in our heads.  Now the third game in the program, Papo & Yo , has made its way to PSN, and it’s far different from the first two, relying more on the power of a child’s imagination, and how he uses it as sort of...

PaPo & Yo

GameTrailers
21 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Rather than thrill or amaze you, Papo y Yo quietly canters into living rooms with the express intent to touch you, delivering a personal tale about a boy and his abusive father wrapped in the guise of an indie puzzle platformer. In spite of its heavy themes, there’s a heartfelt game to uncover and experience here, magical and transportive in all of its outward wonder, and challenging in ways that go beyond its confounding set pieces.
