LOCOROCO REMASTERED

Sony



We’re jelly.

No, not that dumb, lazy abbreviation of “jealous”. In LocoRoco we’re literally jelly. Or some other gelatinous, globular substance.

We get to sing. We get to roll. We get to break up. We get to get back together. We get to make everybody who sees us go “Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!”.

Those reading who’ve been upon Earth for a while may recall that the original LocoRoco was a PSP game. That was the Vita before the Vita. It boasted a vibrant colour palette and the cutest music this side of Noby Noby Boy (which came later, so, umm, wormhole!)

Together with your Mui Mui buddies, you’re the keeper of all things vegetative on a planet that’s somewhere out there. Really out there. You foster growth, and generally make the joint several shades of lovely. But space gremmies the Moja Troop have nefarious plans, wanting to take over and make things all totally non-non-non-non-non peaceful.

So, you get to control the world (insert “BWA-HA-HA!” somewhere around here). You tilt it left, you tilt it right, and this sends your rotund little self scurrying gloompfily on your way to hopefully becoming planet saviour, singing all the way while avoiding bad stuff.

You’ve extra tricks up your sleeve, too. Or you would if you had sleeves. Let’s just pretend that you do, OK? As you trundle blobbily about you encounter berries. Absorb one and you become you plus one. This makes you bigger. But what if you arrive somewhere that you can’t squeeze through? You can split up, then reconvene later – but beware of individual blobs encountering killy stuff. The goal? Get all 20 in each level home safely.

You also get to build a home, and do minigames.

Just when you may be embracing frustration, LocoRoco’s gorgeous everything – looks, sounds, feels - send the chill shooming back.

Not only a fab gaming experience, LocoRoco could also bring about world peace. If only a DualShock would fit in those freakishly teensy hands...

take me back to the start...
