The Midadventures of P.B. Winterbottom

 

If you do not immediately start tapping your feet to the opening music inThe Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, you're off my Christmas card list. It's this great, jaunty barrelhouse piano theme that made me play further into the game just to keep...

The production values on Winterbottom are pretty high, it's a fun game to just sit and look at, and the little bits of art and writing that join each stage are at least as good as a solid children's book. This would be a great game for a kid,...

All he wanted was some pie… About a year and a half ago, a man named Jonathan Blow came out of nowhere to make a mind-blowing, time bending platformer called...

Amazing art style and presentation ; Eureka moments ; Challenge mode with leader boards

Warrants a hint system ; Makes you feel dumb ; Not for everyone

P.B. Winterbottom (PC) Review

 

P.B. Winterbottom has an unquenchable desire for pies of every sort. Running rampant through Bakersburg, he leaves a trail of tins and problems throughout the city, soon finding a new taste for a pie to end all pies.

It takes a madman to sacrifice everything for delicious treats; it takes an even madder man to chase magical pies to reach greater satisfaction. P.B. Winterbottom is just that crazy and his appetite will pull players through time and space to collect...

Love Braid? Sink your teeth into this stylish little puzzler

Striking artistic visuals ; Brilliantly open approach to puzzle/platforming ; Pie

Entire concept is world 5 of Braid ; Boring level design ; Pie

Sadly, these striking visuals only serve to exacerbate Winterbottom’s one true issue: some incredibly bland level design. For the most part, the game limits the majority of its puzzles to tiny static screens, which (accompanied by the monochromatic...

Strategy Informer takes a look at The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom on Xbox 360. (Xbox 360)

Have you ever been obsessed with food so much that you will steal it in your sleep? Well, P.B. Winterbottom has an addiction to pies on this scale and requires an intervention.

Better than cherry pie.

Incredibly distinctive ?silent film? style, satisfying mechanics, clever stages

No hint system

This is a very sweet success story for developers, The Odd Gentlemen, who started out as students with one very cool project (an early version of the game). I can?t think of a better XBLA recommendation, or a more successful ?short form? puzzle game.

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom Review

 

The last couple of years have been good to side-scrolling/puzzle game fans. What with Henry Hatsworth, Braid and the Professor Layton games, it's safe to say that things are looking up for these quirky game concepts. Shooting for the title of...

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is an impressive first effort by Los Angeles developer The Odd Gentlemen. Like Braid before it, it proves that great games don't require huge teams, huge budgets or huge production times. And with its lengthy...
