With its bold, inventive take on the party game, Perfect Universe succeeds in shaking up a tired multiplayer genre whilst adding plenty of single player challenge The issue it has is that some of the nine games on offer are too complex and/or dull to work as good mini-games, and that leaves a fairly small, but decent, collection to peruse for some multiplayer shenanigans.
Perfect Universe is a good collection of games, and it packs so much fun that it's worth downloading – even if you only intend to boot it up when you have friends and family around. Congrats to creator Will Sykes on a really accomplished package.
While it looks and sounds great, Perfect Universe sadly fails as a collection of pick-up-and-play minigames.
Perfect Universe is a fun mini-game collection with something to offer for everyone. Sure, I didn't like all games I played for my Perfect Universe review, but they were fun as a package and I can definitely see me playing them again with friends every now and then.
Unfortunately, while the standard platforming action (and associated minigames) are accessible enough for multiplayer fun, the mechanics of the alien-based minigames, and the physics that drive the spaceship, make the other two thirds of the game frustrating beyond measure for anyone who hasn't put a lot of time into learning how to play them.
Perfect Universe tries, but there's certainly something missing I can't put my finger on.
Perfect Universe not only captured my imagination, it made me excited to experience all sorts of 2D fun.
Perfect Universe by Indie Developer Will Sykes Games is this weeks deployment onto my Ps4. From the title I was not sure what to expect; a universe where Arsenal FC play consistently enough to win the Premier League? A day where Donald Trump's latest antics aren't plastered across my news feed? Unfortunately only one of these can probably happen (Arsenal winning the Premiership) however Perfect Universe is actually a cool collection of 9 mini games that are based around physics and gravity.
