Bob Came in Pieces is not a good game.
Bob Came in Pieces is not a bad game.
Bob Came in Pieces is a good game locked tightly to a horrific (and sometimes unplayable) control scheme.
Interesting idea that I really wanted to get behind, but the main problem with the game is what I like to call "slippery controls."
Bob Came in Pieces has a cool idea with ship building to solve puzzles, but moving the actual ship will prove frustrating and difficult. Most of the "challenge" with Bob Came in Pieces comes from the fact that Bob doesn't usually do what you want him to. "Building" the ship is just a matter of sticking tubes onto your ship with a few rockets for awkward thrust and a push or pull device to move around objects. The rest is up to your mind... or your willpower to simply keep chugging at the same "puzzle" until Bob finally decides that he really does want to go the way you want him to.
The addition of fans in later levels make the game way too frustrating, and I'm glad I got this in a bundle for almost nothing... or literally nothing. Fighting the pull of gravity, the push of a fan and a thrust system that can easily turn Bob upsidedown, makes me not willing to recomend.
Someone will enjoy it, of this I'm sure, it just isn't me.
