Are you looking for a fun and colorful open world 3D game on PlayStation 5? Then check out our Togges review!
Hello everybody! Christmas is almost here, and if some of you are struggling with what games to purchase on PlayStation 5 for your kids, then may I suggest Togges from Thunderful and Regular Studio? Togges is a fun open world 3D cube-spreading platformer with plenty of comedy and lots of content, all at a great price. You play as a red cube named Toomba, who is basically a Roomba. It does not collect dust, but it does manipulate cubes, spreading and erasing huge numbers of cubes at once. The cubes are very cute and sociable!
The tutorial portion of the game is approximately 15-20 minutes long, and you are taught how to spread/erase and manipulate cubes to make your way around the worlds that Togges has to offer. The spreading mechanic will only work if you are in very close proximity to another cube. Because of this, you will have to be smart and plan things just right as you work your way through some of the tougher platforming sections, as the gameplay mechanic has some limitations. For example, you can stack cubes vertically, but there is a height limit to be aware of as well. You also get a set amount of cubes you can use to spread, but you can expand your numbers by collecting the odd-shaped particles that can expand your spreading prowess by five.
On each planet, you will meet some bizarre characters that you will seek aid from to stop the void – the dark matter – from spreading and consuming the universe. Once you have completed the tutorial and are free to explore the vast open world, collecting everything that you see. Fruit is one of your goals as well! And as you progress through the game, new cube types are added. You begin with red cubes, which have a height limit of five, and they are fire-resistant. The yellow cubes have a higher stack limit and can conduct electricity. The blue Togges come next, and they have a lower stack limit than the red cubes and can survive water. The green Togges are much bigger in size, but they cost more to spread. These are some examples of the different colored cubes and their uses. There are other cube colors to discover, but if you want to know what they are, then you’ll have to play the game!
There are no game overs. If a cube dies in some of the deadly, they turn into a sort of cotton ball. Simply erase them to have them turned back into a cube you can reuse. There are some side quests, which are definitely a bit more challenging when compared to the main segments of the game. When you finish a planet, you can move to the next one via a spaceship, which is quite fun. Nothing is missable, and you can go back to other planets as the need arises to finish collecting any missing collectibles and earn those shiny trophies.
Togges has a full trophy list with a Platinum for you to unlock. The game is Cross-Buy, so those of you with a PlayStation 5 console can play the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions and try to get all trophies for each version. The list includes 24 Bronze trophies, 10 Silver trophies, and 4 Gold trophies. As you can see, there are several trophies to work on, and they will pop when you spread a million Togges, collect all fruit, all letters, and all seeds, progress through the game, reach new areas, and complete a handful of miscellaneous objectives.
Togges is a colorful game that ended up being bigger than I expected! It’s a funny experience with plenty of content, and it’s one that you can play at your own pace. As you gain access to new cube types, the whole thing manages to still feel fresh from start to finish. This is a good all-ages game that you can enjoy on your own or with your kids. It offers a beautiful and vibrant universe with some comedic elements, so you can’t go wrong. Togges is available as a Cross-Buy title, so your $19.99 purchase will give you access to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions at no extra cost.
