    A nostalgic trip to the 80s that will make the oldest players remember feelings from the past. An original concept (play a handheld inside a virtual game) that homages, with a great sense of humor, lots of clichés and games that grew with us. A little wonder that only last 2-3 hours, but it's so genius that you will remember it for a long time.

    In the end, Pixel Ripped 1989 is a superb VR experience that'll make you have flashbacks if you grew up in the '80s or '90s. The imaginative premise and tight 2D platforming creates one of the most memorable games that you can play on PlayStation VR.

    The amount of fun to be had traversing the excellently designed levels with almost telepathic control intuition would be more than enough to recommend this, but ARVORE has gone above and beyond to ensure this one sticks in the memory long after completion. Easter eggs, collectables, multiple routes, and the sheer love shown in replicating the environments gamers would have snuck a quick gaming session into before tucking into Christmas Dinner and class, come together to give a handheld simulation you wish you could make portable and show as many people as possible.

    There aren’t many games with such a surety of visual design as Pixel Ripped 1989, but while it’s deeply referential it retains its own unique character and flavour. It’s perhaps aggravatingly tough at times, and fundamentally you’ll be playing a Game Boy game for a good portion of your time here, but it’s undoubtedly a VR experience you won’t have seen before.
