Nice puzzle game. Also requires some skill to control the little ship.
But it's very, very short.

Traditional Rating: 6/10
Platform: PC
Genre: Puzzle Sidescroller

You take the role of Bob - a young alien whose spaceship has fallen to pieces when he crash lands on a mysterious planet on route to work. Immediately tasked to explore and locate the pieces, it's up to the player to help Bob rebuild his little ship so that he can leave the planet.

What I enjoyed about Bob Came in Pieces is that as you locate pieces of your ship you will need to use them to build your ship into a variety of different ship designs in order to solve the planets various puzzles. The games music is outstanding and I remember just sitting there and listening to one particular levels tune repeat itself over and over again just because it was so lovely.

With 25 levels and achievements alike there is plenty to do here for a little downloadable title. My only gripe is the controls. They are incredibly finicky and often had me getting on the wrong side of irritated. After having tried both keyboard/mouse and controller combo I would say the controller is probably your best bet due to the analogous thumsticks making it far easier to fling and steer little Bob than the WSAD combination.

I enjoyed this little title but I can't say it stands out as anything memorable or fantastic and for a simple little diversion it's fun but forgettable.

Bob - the game is as short as the name.
Bounce around finding parts to upgrade your ship and help you solve the challenges.
A simple story with clever physics puzzles, charming graphics and soothing music.

Recommended for smart kids of all ages and chimps with sticks.

You can buy more entertaining and less frustrating puzzle games. Bob Came in Pieces features 14 chapters and 10 "VR Missions", one of the latter is a horrible version of a Super Mario level. Again, you can buy more entertaining and less frustrating puzzle games. If he came in pieces, he should leave in pieces as well.

P.S.: I played more than 18 minutes, Steam just didn't register them.
