World Splitter from Bumble3ee Interactive and NeoBird is a twin-stick puzzle platformer with a fun twist on PS4. Learn more in our World Splitter review!
In World Splitter from Bumble3ee Interactive and NeoBird, you’ll be taking on a twin-stick puzzle platformer. After crashlanding on an unknown territory, the creatures you were transporting have escaped, and you must now use your abilities to find and collect them to keep them from harm. You’ll explore a series of worlds that will be split into ten stages each, and with each new stage, you’ll find new puzzle elements and new hazards to take into consideration. One hit is all it takes to defeat you, so you need to be careful.
You’ll walk with the left analog stick, jumping with the X button – once this ability is unlocked halfway through the first world. You can interact with things with the Square button, which will be useful when you want to activate a switch to, say, remove or add a bridge. Your ghost vision is activated with the Triangle button, which will allow you to get a glimpse into the other world that is right through the dimension rift, which you can move around with the right analog stick. The L2 and R2 buttons are used for rotating the screen’s sections, which will allow you to take on some tricky but fun platforming sequences.
Enemies will be introduced at the start of the second world by way of rock-like creatures that will roll at a fast pace, only to then stop in their tracks, taunting you. One hit and you’re gone, so be sure to pay attention to what else is going on in the screen so that you can take advantage of the barriers that are available in one dimension so that you can keep them away from the path you need to take. Who knows, if you plan things right, you might be able to trap them inside of a wall or lure them into the water/lava to destroy them!
World Splitter has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy waiting for you, as long as you have the skills and patience needed to survive. The trophy list can prove to be a handful since you’ll be aiming at getting at least a bronze medal in all single-player challenges as you work your way towards getting a silver medal for all challenges and then a gold medal for all challenges! There are also a pair of trophies for collecting half and all of the monsters in the single-player campaign, as well as trophies for beating all levels in every world.
World Splitters is a fun 2D puzzle game that throws new elements into the mix at a steady pace so that you can learn them as you go without feeling overwhelmed. There are sixty stages to complete, each one with challenges to complete if you want to 100% the game. The good news is that you don’t need to complete all challenges for a level in a single go, so you could focus on rescuing all monsters in one run, then focus on finding the fastest route to the exit, to then focus on completing the level while staying within the rotation limit for the level – that is, how many degrees you can rotate the rift before you exit the stage. World Splitter is out on PlayStation 4 with a $19.99 asking price.
