There's no getting away from the fact that Paper Titans is gorgeous. From the menus to the papercraft characters you can actually print out and make, every part of the game's presentation screams quality.
It's a shame that the gameplay doesn't quite live up to the spectacle the art-style creates, and while there are some clever ideas here they never play spark with enough force to catch, leaving a solid but never surprising puzzling adventure.
The game is all about collecting envelopes and stars. You're given control of a set number of cardboard robots and need to figure out how to get them where they need to go. Only one kind of robot can grab things, while the others act as contraptions to get him past obstacles.
It's certainly a looker, but Paper Titans is a little too shallow once you get past its gorgeous facade
