Ibb & Obb Review

Ibb& Obb Review

If you're looking for a game that will work your brain then this is Ibb & Obb, the third game in Sony's 2013 play campaign, is out now.
Ibb & Obb is a game that demands you to split your attention between two characters, 
if that's not brain inducing enough, you also have to keep track of the gravity in the game, not enough for you? You also have to keep track of enemy placement, 
still not enough for you? Using two characters that both have to work together you have to work your way through a series of team puzzles together.
Ibb & Obb is one of the few games that truly is better when you're playing it with someone else. 
If you're looking for a game you could play with your girlfriend this might be the kind of game you should pull out. It's a fun simple puzzle game that's easy to learn but difficult to master.
I can't tell you how many times I literally said "Wait one second my brain doesn't function like this!" To my friend who happened to figure out the puzzle before me. This is also the kind of game that you almost completely over think in certain areas. 
After playing a few areas I recall there being one section that took us a while to figure out but the answer to the puzzle was amazingly simple, and right in front of us. 
On the other side of that coin, certain puzzles had us scratching our heads for quite a while before we figured out the solution. Figuring out difficult puzzles is quite gratifying when playing this game.
This game throws a few different mechanics at you, one of your characters can jump on the head of the other character to get a boost up to higher platforms. 
There are portal type dividers that separate the top from the bottom areas, and some of those portal dividers only specific characters can go through. 
There are jump pads which the characters use to launch one another. 
There are even bubbles that shift gravity, it all sounds difficult but plays quite smoothly.
I think Ibb & Obb is a wonderful beautiful puzzle game that plays great with a friend (not so much by yourself) so Ibb &Obb gets a 8 out of 10.
