A second player can help guide you on your adventure by watching on the Social Screen and offering advice. Or they can pick up a second controller and take command of BORB, the Cloud Pig! BORB can shift between layers freely, collecting items and helpfully (or sometimes not so helpfully!) pushing pilgrims around as she goes!
Pop-up Pilgrims is a beautiful and charming game that is pleasant for a time, until players discover that it carries some backdoor punishments for not getting perfect scores on every level. Compounding the issue, the game never explains this unfortunate mechanic, instead allowing the player to discover how things work when they are already in the midst of their punitive levels. There is no question that the game is well made, and fans of Lemmings-style games will probably find something to love here, Pop-up Pilgrims left me more frustrated than entertained.
