10 Games Like Tearaway

Tearaway on PlayStation Vita and Tearaway Unfolded on PlayStation 4 create a game world entirely from paper as the setting for this fantastical adventure. It’s beautiful and funny, and offers a running, jumping exploration challenge. Drawing on Algonquian North American native folklore, it creates a story about identity and bravery against the odds in a quest to reach the source of life. Whether played on the portable PlayStation Vita or PlayStation 4, it uses unusual motion, camera and touch controls to draw the player into the action.
