Help a bear get home in this incredibly stylish platformer set in a bizarre nightmare-world.
In this enchanted land a dopey fat bear has lost his way. Interact with the bear by pulling his tail, elongating his jaw, squashing him flat or stretching him tall and thin in the hopes of getting the bear home, somehow.
Throughout the incredibly hyper-styled Burton-esque levels you navigate through hedges, across ditches, avoid strange dancing frog men and more. The game is like an imagination poured out onto the screen in which the loosely threaded together ideas are held together with a bear.
Controlling the bear is an indirect experience. You never actually move him or jump with him; rather you can manipulate parts of his body which he will respond to. Stretching his jaw allows him to eat. Pulling him up stretches him and the sudden snap-back creates a jumping motion. While the bear is often less than accurately responsive, the mechanic is an interesting change from the usual where you’re in control of the protagonist.
Quirky, off-beat, different and worlds away from standard, Bear Go Home is so unique it stuns with its beauty at every turn. Watching it in motion is a thing of beauty and its most certainly not to be missed. Download now and get sucked into Bear’s world.
