  • While there are loads of reasonably-good platformers on the Switch many of them typically have a difficult time to stand out from the rest with new worthwhile ideas. In the case of Adventures of Pip, its mechanics that will have you starting out as a lowly single pixel who is able to periodically power up and take on more refined forms that have new capabilities is relatively fresh and works well. If you’re a completionist there are secrets and challenging spots all around you begging to be found, explored, and mastered, but even if you’re not inclined to track everything down you’ll need to flex your smarts periodically to figure out how to get through a tough spot. Typically the answer is to revert to a lower resolution form in order to take on capabilities that those possess to get by a particular obstacle. This leads to a need for being precise, observant, and creative as you need to figure out how to get to specific spots and collect everything on each level… sometimes leading to some genuinely challenging sections you’ll need to flex your old school platforming muscles with to get by. Cute, creative, and quite secret-laden this was a surprisingly good time for a pretty humble package.
