    Overall, Pop-Up Pilgrims is a fun little puzzle title with a gorgeous art style, but its control scheme could have used a bit more thought, and an option to re-map some of the buttons would not have gone amiss, neither would some manner of in-game manual or tutorial. Fans of Lemmings will no doubt have great fun exploring this new twist on a classic idea.

    Pop-Up Pilgrims is a very interesting Lemmings-like concept designed for the VR. If you like this type of strategy game, give it a try.

    Pop-Up Pilgrims is a super-challenging VR game that's sure to reward perfectionists who love to strategize. However, its unreasonably sensitive mechanics will frequently make you feel like brutally bashing your headset in.

    While it is fun to experience Pop-Up Pilgrims in a somewhat faux VR mode, it is really a mere 3D presentation when you get down to it. You are truly restricted to a god-like point of view. And the gameplay mechanics don’t quite gell with the VR implementation.

    Pop-Up Pilgrim is a discreet puzzle-game that picks up many mechanics that came from Lemmings. Published exclusively for PlayStation VR, it would work much better on mobile, considering that it makes a questionable use of virtual reality.

    The artdesign is beautiful (minus the big headed ugly pilgrims), the depth behind the VR glasses is impressive. But to be honest, the lemmings principle is not enhanced in any form by virtual reality and gets redundant too fast.

    The highest compliment that can be said about Pop-Up Pilgrims is that it is not broken. At best, this is an extremely uninteresting and dull game. It plays like some kind of first-year student project that is only slightly elevated by some competent, yet generic art assets. VR is capable of so much more, yet here is a perfect example of a gross misuse of the platform.

    This is the second best game ever, only behind the newest Bubsy game. I highly recommend it to everyone in the existence in the entire universe.
