Critic Reviews for Tales of the Tiny Planet
I did enjoy all of the levels, I'm just really bummed that there isn't more. The Nintendo Switch version would've been a perfect platform to expand on what made the original great, plus offering something unique for the new paying public. At the moment, Tales of the Tiny Planet is simply a fine title.
Tales of the Tiny Planet is a fantastic puzzle title with a unique simple control system. Early levels tended to be quite effortless while the most fun from this title arose in the final worlds with some wonderfully advanced use of the mechanics at play. The whole package comes together brilliantly with a charming art style and music. However, with a short overall length and lack of replay value, the high price point feels unwarranted and is a hard recommendation at this moment in time.
It is the game’s adorable demeanour, the chance to experience it cooperatively, and the accessible single-button approach that can be recognised as the strengths that help Tales of the Tiny Planet to overcome this complaint. However, the continuous reliance on trial-and-error, which is compounded by inconsistencies in how the physics engine reacts to your input, can readily frustrate. It’s never enough to dampen your enjoyment too much, especially when thinking each puzzle through with another player, and I will continue to hope that it can find an audience on Nintendo Switch in spite of its misjudged pricing.
