  1. Whilst the Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom may not be everyone’s cup of tea it is a quirky and whimsical jaunt through the mind of a man addicted to pies and probably well worth a look for anyone wanting a change from the endless FPS cavalcade.
  2. The charming and challenging puzzles of this downloadable title are great, at first. The challenge quickly goes from motivational to simply frustrating. Although the music is fantastic, the puzzles are clever and the presentation is tasteful the overall experience is dampened a bit by the frustrating nature of the challenge.
  3. It's not a fun-filled romp through a fantastic world - it's a test to divide the clever from the slow. Have fun, but all the same, buyer beware!
  4. Sadly, these striking visuals only serve to exacerbate Winterbottom’s one true issue: some incredibly bland level design.

Winterbottom is one of the most interesting arcade games I have ever played, it's score, storyline, grainy animation, and comical poetry make this game so satisfying. It is very artistic and enjoyable. This is one Platform Puzzle game you have to play. If the pies don't make you salivate the gameplay will everything about this game is original and fun. One of my favorite arcade games I have played, and I have played a lot. You will get so much more out of this game than the money you put into it. Full Review »

Sure, Winterbottom is fantastic on 360 and PC, but personally, I think it'd be experienced on Playstation Vita. Full Review »

Its mind-bending puzzles are even more innovative than Braid's and gradually increase in complexity until the end. Stealing pies has never been so much fun! Full Review »
