I just beat the game. Don't know how much it took me, but it was short, even though I found most of the secrets on my first playthrough. It just a great game though, charming, well crafted, with great platforming sections and a very good use of Vita's abilities (except from some annoying gimmicks here and here) Music and sound design were also remarkable.

However, the short length, lack of challenge and uninteresting side missions prevent it from being a system seller or even the best game on the system. It is a must buy for anybody who owns it though. Even if you don't like the genre. I'm surprised myself as I didn't like any LBP games, but MM delivered with this one.

What say you?

Wait until you have no time constraints and a quiet environment. Wear headphones when you play as well; the music is fantastic.

From my experience Tearaway does not live off its gameplay that much, but its incredibly charming presentation, not only in regards to graphics, but also sound. Moreover, you will be taking photos while playing, this can be super-uncomfortable when playing on trains. I would strongly advice to play this game at home. Also it's super-short, so just dedicate one half day to it and you're done anyway. No "need" to play it on the go ;).

For when you're feeling a bit lazy or if someone is playing this outside, you can swing the camera about with the thumb-stick too but it's still motion controlled for aligning it.

Got the platinum. :3 The two levels I had left to do without dying were shorter than I remember, or maybe I was just so nervous of falling off the edge that I didn't notice time.

Scrapped glitched on me though. I got 100% of the scraps killed, got the Stamp Completionist trophy without Scrapped. :/

But, after killing a few scraps it popped and I got my platinum.

Question: how is everyone making the awesome character skins? Are you going to the points in the game where someone asks you to make an object with the paper+scissors (crown, pumpkin, etc.) and using all of those opportunities to make all of the components required?

Start the customisation (hold the the character). On the left you can click the +and scissor icon to open up the things you've made and then click the plus on the right to make a new one, iirc.

It seems that Zavvi has shipped to me the PS Vita bundle instead of Tearaway. They just sent me the email to return the wrong product.

But I still have not received anything (I do not live in UK, and shipping from Zavvi may also be two or more weeks). I don't know what to do right now.

It's pinching like on a phone, but I've found that as long as your first finger is on the right piece your other pinch finger can start from any other point on the screen. In other words, both fingers don't have to be on the piece.

Good job! I was just about to ask if anybody here had tried the real-life papercraft. I think if I was a kid I would be ALL OVER that, but I'm a tired old man now :P I just love the singular commitment this game makes to papercraft.

I'm a bit confused about what exactly this Extra Things To Do in The Desert wants me to do.

It says it wants me to wear a skull and bones. I made a skull to put on Iota's face and I've tried individual bones on each of the limbs as well as one crossbone on the chest, but neither of these seem to work. Anyone find a solution that worked for this?

Red skull plus single bone worked for me. I think the white skull-like face is actually a Wendigo.

Anyone know if the soundtrack will be available for purchase later? I would love to buy it.

I've tried and it's pretty relaxing. My advice is to get some thick(ish) card stock since it helps things stand up better, and in general makes things a lot easier as opposed to using thinner paper.

I plan on making this Crazy Taxi papercraft soon...

Yep, the purchasable stuff did the trick. I guess trying to make my own was the problem strangely enough. Thanks.

Yeah, I don't think there's anyway for the game to recognize custom user-created shapes.

I cannot stop listening to the Orchard Drum Celebration track from the game: http://youtu.be/CWR86Sm8Pbs So good. I need the soundtrack already. Put it up for sale, MM!!! :)

I could rail on about what I loved about the game, which vita specific functions that were done well etc but instead I will just say one thing I think the majority of GAF might actually have missed and I say this without being sarcastic(I don't blame you if you did and cherish you more if you didn't).

Thank you Media Molecule for adding brown people support. Thank you.

I'd say be careful in combat since I've seen a few scraps get caught behind collisions where I couldn't get them. They can get lost in the chaos pretty easily.

I've found them. They were at the very, very beginning of the level right in front of me after I hit the ground...suddenly...somehow. I swear to god they have never been there in my other attempts to find them. Super weird and kinda frustrating.

Anyway...

It's kind of sad because this is the first game since launch that really used all the Vita's unique features and really proves how amazing and fun the hardware is and can be.

Also, I made a squirrel papercraft at lunch today, it is fucking awesome!

Finished it too. What a fantastic game. I do wish it were a little longer, but hopefully they can solve that by releasing a bunch of fantasy obstacle course DLC like Mario Sunshine, because I think the mechanics have a surprising amount of potential and it was starting to show towards the end of the game. Really nice surprise overall though, and it's funny how the extent of its use of the Vita even covers the OLED when the colours come back before going into the rocket.

And this is just sublime. I haven't been too crafty on my first playthrough, but been busy taking photos. If anyone would like to share albums, mine's here:

I fashioned a monacle. For science!


A gopher riding an elk made out of Shinkansen seat cover.


Quite pleased with this Wendigo shot.

Tried to make the pumpkin as terrifying as possible.

Edit: Roubjon that is amazing. I wish there was a way to share parts and outfits you've made.
