    Boring. If you have a sad story to tell about your childhood write a book about it, don't create a bugged videogame.

    Tries to be sophisticated but does it horribly wrong with extremely, painfully boring gameplay. Tediously repetitive, the fun is already long gone before you can enjoy what 'story' there is here. It tries too hard and it falls flat, some other time maybe.

    When you look at it it's a captivating tour along the foreign culture and child's phantasy that is in fact a sanctuary against real demons lurking behind three-dimensional puzzles. Playful and at the same time mature game experience, whose concept works only halfway through. But when it works, it pushes your emotions forward.

    Papo & Yo leaves me conflicted. On the one hand, I couldn’t be happier that Vander Caballero turned to video games as his means for self-expression. Unfortunately, the uninspired, frustrating gameplay adds nothing to the heartbreaking story contained therein.
