Love You To Bits Review – Love You To Bits Review
Love You To Bits is an indie game whose main objective is rather straight-forward and blatantly presented; find the pieces of Cosmo's companion, Nova, which were scattered across the intergalactic plains in drastically contrasting worlds after their spaceship, struck by a stray laser beam (or of some other sort) broke apart. In regards to the premise of the game, there is nothing egregious about it - it isn't too complex or enthralling in originality or creativity. Needless to say, the game's paramount and simple goal is enticing because it introduces and subjects players to different environments they must interact with; you must explore, analyze, and assess each level in order to proceed, as the game engages players in finding and utilizing different items provided. In each level there are also memories hidden sparsely throughout that, ultimately, aren't required or important to the end goal, but the idea is intriguing nevertheless and captivates players so that they delve even further into the game.
Players are instituted to different intergalactic worlds at the start of each level that they must explore and experiment with to find, not only key gameplay components, but memories as well. Each level is a puzzle, with some gameplay elements less apparent to the players; all parts of the puzzle however, must be fulfilled before the level can be completed. One complaint I must make though, is that climbing stairs or traveling through the levels can be tedious and ruins the immersion.
Another complaint that must be noted, is that the ending is rather anticlimactic and left me unsatisfied; did Cosmos succeed in "resurrecting" Nova? Did she lose her memory and was that the purpose of the memories cached inside of each level? Was their relationship affected at all afterwards? The build-up and the excitement and anticipation roused by the last level and the final piece collected plateaued at the ending.
Overall, Love You To Bits is a great game and I rate it 5/5 (only because its flaws can be overlooked).
