Quico’s best friend, Monster, is a huge beast with razor-sharp teeth, but that doesn’t scare Quico away from playing with him. That said, Monster does have a very dangerous problem: an addiction to poisonous frogs. The minute he sees one hop by, he’ll scarf it down and fly into a violent, frog-induced rage where no one, including Quico, is safe. And yet, Quico loves his Monster and wants to save him. As Quico, players will build their friendship with Monster by solving puzzles together and adventuring through a magical, surrealist world. Players will need to learn to use Monster’s emotions, both good and bad, to their advantage if they want to complete their search for a cure and save their pal.
Papo & Yo is a facinating game where you solve puzzles with the aid of your friends, a personal robot named and a giant monster. The overall point of the game is to find a cure for Monster, and his ever present hunger for poisonous frogs, which tend to throw him into a fit of rage.
Papo & Yo is set in a beautiful city, inhabited only - it seems - by yourself, a girl and Monster. The graphics are marvelous and the game has a very simple control scheme and a solid learning curve. I was immediately drawn in by the teasing puzzles and the mysterious underlying story.
