Tearaway was released in 2013 for the PlayStation Vita, a handheld system that not many people own. Although it’s original release was critically acclaimed, not many people actually played Tearaway. Because of this, Tearaway Unfolded is a remake of the original title for the much more popular PlayStation 4 console.
While being labelled a ‘remake’ of the original title, Tearaway Unfolded also expands on the original in several ways. Featuring a vibrant, colourful world inspired by paper crafting, this unique, visual style is enticing for all ages.

If you’re into gaming at all, there’s no doubt you would have heard of Nintendo’s plumber mascot, Mario. After countless iterations in the ‘Super Mario’ franchise, and to celebrate the character’s 30th anniversary, Nintendo has finally bit the bullet and effectively given players the means to create their own side-scrolling Mario levels.
Perfect for creative minded people, this game allows you to take elements from four separate eras of Mario and build unique and exciting levels to share online with other players. Oh, and if you don’t think you’re the type interested in making levels, you can also play every other user’s created levels as well. It’s basically like a Mario game that never ends, with constantly updating content and new challenges.
