Papo and Yo Review
Posted: 21 months ago, last updated 3 weeks ago.
It's a platform game based on exploration, running and jumping. There are also puzzles in the game where you interact with the world by moving blocks around and triggering interactions with hieroglyphics written on walls and doors. The monster can sometimes help with these puzzles but has an addiction for eating frogs and if he eats one he becomes a fiery, raging beast that will damage anything around him. Quico can use fruit to calm him down.
Although visually a little odd-looking, this artisan-style works with the complex and at times dark theme to create a moving and unusual way to deal with the subject of domestic abuse.
