Explore The Exquisite World Of Tearaway Unfolded For Playstation 4

Tearaway was released way back in 2013 on the underutilized and underappreciated Playstation Vita. It was both a critical and commercial success (in terms of a PS Vita release), however, not many gamers were able to enjoy Tearaway since it was a Playstation Vita exclusive title. Now, the game is being re-released for Playstation 4 as Tearaway Unfolded and Playstation 4 owners should definitely check out the game!

Tearaway Unfolded

Tearaway Unfolded retains the quirkiness and imaginative gameplay that was prevalent in the Vita version but has now altered the control schemes to better suit the Playstation 4 and the Dualshock 4 controller. The distinct controls of Vita—the touchscreen and back touch surface and the front-and-rear-facing cameras—gave players an interaction to the game that felt genuine and direct as they are able to manipulate elements within the game.

Despite being so, Media Molecule and Tarsier Studios are able to translate the mechanics to the Playstation 4 version by cleverly using the Dualshock 4’s touchpad, lightbar, and motion sensor to re-create the bond between players and the on-screen protagonist, as well as the in-game world.

Some of the changes to Tearaway Unfolded’s control scheme can be a bit tricky on the DualShock 4, such as drawing on the touchpad to create snowflakes, stars, or crowns instead of Vita’s more intuitive touchscreen. But for the most part, the controls works well. With simple swipes across the touchpad to create gusts of wind and pressing the touchpad to bounce the character on a bouncy pad, all these new motions and inputs will start to click as players navigate through the colourful world of Tearaway Unfolded.

Of course, certain complex input, like drawing or sketching on the game, can be cumbersome on the touchpad. That’s why the developers provided a free companion app that players can download to their phone or tablet and transform it into a sketchpad. You can even use the Playstation camera to capture your surroundings and put it as a background wallpaper in the game, or take a real-time capture of your face to be placed inside the game’s rift in the sky; making it look like you’re a deity in the game.

Tearaway Unfolded

While the main attraction of Tearaway had always been the gameplay, which works surprisingly well on Unfolded, it’s the graphical improvements that really sets Unfolded apart from the Vita version. Using the Playstation 4’s horsepower has done wonders in bringing the world of Tearaway to life, and the constant visual stimulation from Tearaway‘s world gives the game a more storybook-like feel to it.

Despite being ported to Playstation 4, the game still retains the heart and quirkiness that made Tearaway beloved by those that played it on Playstation Vita. Tearaway Unfolded is available now on Playstation 4. Top-up your PSN Wallet and grab a copy from the Playstation Digital Store!
