Tethered is a fun release that is now available for all PlayStation 4 owners to enjoy. By removing the PS VR requirement, Secret Society has made it possible for millions of console owners to give this game a try. There's plenty of content to explore, and with a solid set of gameplay mechanic as its foundation, you'll be spending dozens of hours helping the Peeps succeed. Are you up for the challenge?

Imagine you stand in front of a kitchen table. The only things on this table are three cute little mice. Aww. Hey there, little guys. You are tasked with keeping these three mice from crawling off the table. Okay, you might imagine, easy enough. But oh wait, there’s a catch; you can’t just stand with your feet on the floor. The floor is lava.

Turns up the speed on traditional god games and creates a clever tactical challenge with just the odd frustration left in its transfer from VR to 2D.

Strategy games may be a niche market on console, but Tethered genuinely has its heart in the right place. With a little more autonomy in its Peeps, it could have been a great game, instead of an above average one. Certainly a good choice if you want a lengthy VR game, though.

Tethered is a pleasant and relaxing game suited for players looking for a peaceful experience. Homewever, due to its peculiar gameplay, it's not a game which everyone can enjoy.

There is a lot to like about Tethered. I have played a handful of strategy games in virtual reality now, and most have multiple hits and misses. Tethered is almost all hit, with fun gameplay and an adorable visual aesthetic. Best of all? It is a full and proper game and not a lightweight proof of concept like so many other VR titles.

Easy-to-learn RTS, which proves, that there is a place for more complex games on PlayStation VR.

Tethered is a magical strategy game, with cute characters, and enjoyable gameplay mechanics. It’s been quite some time since I had fun with a God-like strategy game, and Tethered is one of the best PlayStation VR games currently available. It’s a shame there isn’t any way to continue a level after meeting the goal requirements, but each of the thirteen islands is quite lengthy.

Tethered is a smart, inventive and funny game with a clever control scheme. One of the best PSVR games out there.
