just a banger of a video game through and through. completely inventive, never retreads on its own ideas, never lets up, and possibly the only love letter to video games ever made that doesnt feel completely trite and/or pretentious. just lovely, lovely, lovely stuff.

A fun and simple platform that shows off the power of the Playstation 5s DualSense controller. Would you believe me that this is just a tech demo? Platforming isn't the only thing that you do in this game, you can also collect Playstation consoles and accessories throughout the years. Highly recommend it if you have a PS5!

Probably the best tech demo/pack in game ever made

A great start to the PlayStation 5, and that's all it really needs to be! This fun little tech demo is here to showcase the new PS5 "DualSense" Controller, with the additional bonus of a free Platinum and a wonderful museum of the Playstation's characters and history.

The gameplay here, while simple, is honestly a blast. I didn't feel bored or frustrated playing any segment, and most of the trophies are pretty easy to obtain, some being hidden or kinda tricky to discover, though I felt this was done to also showcase the console's new guide features. The attention to detail in all the worlds with different Astro Bots representing characters like Sackboy, Pyramid Head, Crash Bandicoot, PaRappa the Rapper, and more, are also great to spot out in the different areas. The PlayStation "Artifacts" that you can collect throughout levels are also amazing, further showing the amount of work that went into what could've been a simple half an hour showcase.

I expect every tech demo included with new consoles, if there even are any, to at least try and be something like this.
