Upon seeing videos of gameplay for PlayStation Vita’s Escape
Plan, this adorable puzzler stood out to me. Players take control of Lil and
Laarg, who, by their own naming conventions, are little and large characters
attempting to escape captivity. The visuals are immediately noticeable like something
out of Tim Burton’s mind but without Johnny Depp in a leading role. The OLED
screen of the Vita really gives Escape Plan the visual fidelity that Sony promised with the powerful handheld even if it is all entirely in black and white.
Having a game that looks great and one that plays
great are, in fact, two different things. On my first initial play through, I
had a terrible time getting the two characters to stop when needed causing them
to erupt in an explosion of black goo. It’s cute the first time but quite
infuriating after fifty times.
Editor note: a patch was released fixing quite a few of the glaring issues we had with the game awarding this a “Buy It” rank.
