The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo is a great-looking and fun hand-drawn adventure game from Sony Interactive Entertainment, Astrolabe Games, and Meridiem Games. It’s of the point and click variety, and it’s a short but entertaining journey that is definitely worth checking out on PlayStation, and it features an interesting art style and solid animation that will certainly grab your eye. Just check out the trailer above for this The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo review!
This one is quite literally a point and click adventure game, so you’ll be moving a cursor around the screen with the left analog stick as you interact with objects and characters by pressing the X button. If you’re ever stuck, there’s a very useful book of hints that you can easily access by clicking on it. As to not spoil a puzzle right away, the hint book will show you a hint and point you in the general direction of what needs to be done next. If you’re still stuck, then you can get another hint, and so on.
This is a short game, so I don’t want to spoil too much by talking about its puzzles. I’ll only discuss the first few minutes of the game to give you an idea of what you’ll be doing. After the main character falls through the air, he ends up thinking about an apple. Since he’s hungry, this will be your prompt for you to click on the apple… except you won’t be able to grab it! After this, a huge, gloved hand presents you with a surprise gift. Unfortunately, after grabbing it, everything trembles, and the gift falls away from Mr. Coo. You’ll now need to chase after it!
Once you open a curtain, you’ll run into an arcade machine. Interacting with it will make a pair of characters appear on the machine’s screen, and it’s then that you’ll have to push a button to transform one of them so that they both end up fighting. This sends some objects flying out of the arcade machine, with one of them landing on a contraption to the right. Activate it, and you’ll see the spotlight move to showcase a monkey with a stick. You need the stick for the next part of the puzzle, so you’ll have to find a way to distract the monkey so that you can trap it. Will you find the solution?
This one has a full list with a Platinum trophy for you to work on. And since The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo is a Cross-Buy title, if you own a PlayStation 5, you can download the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, and each one has its own separate trophy list for you to work on. Each list has 6 Bronze trophies, 8 Silver trophies, and 7 Gold trophies for you to take care of. One of the trophies does require you to complete the game without using any hints, so do keep that one in mind! Oh, and you’ll need to finish the game once and then replay the whole thing to be able to grab all the special pieces of paper, which showcase some of the art used for creating this experience.
The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo is a great-looking and fun hand-drawn adventure game that is worth checking out on PlayStation. It’s art style and animation will instantly grab your attention as you try to solve the different puzzles the game throws at you. It’s a short journey that you should be able to complete in a couple of hours at most, which is not a bad thing! The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo is available as a Cross-Buy title, so your $19.99 purchase will allow you to download both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
