Games Review: Paper Moon

PC, Flashbang Studio, free

Proof that gaming doesn’t have to be about graphics and never-ending sequels comesin the form of the charmingly arty Paper Moon. This monochrome platformer, available to play for free on blurst.com and inspired by the Ella Fitzgerald song and a popup children’s book, is like SuperMarioBros reimagined byTimBurton. Players have to use the landscape to advance, whether that’s in the form of rocks, stars or mountains, and every stage is beautiful to look at, aswell as fun to play. If keyboard controls aren’t your thing, plug in anXbox joypad to play instead. Check the website for information on forthcoming projects, all ofwhich look as though they’ll be as quirky as PaperMoon.
