THE RETURNED; GAME.

Byline: DAN SILVER

ENTWINED PLAYSTATION 4

This debut from indie studio PixelOpus is a twin–stick challenge with a difference.

You have to use them simultaneously to guide two star–crossed characters through a succession of increasingly obtuse obstacles, literally jumping through hoops in order to bring the lovebirds together at the end of each level.

The stylised use of sound and light here is reminiscent of 2012's indie darling Journey but, in truth, Entwined is a more straightforward and shallow proposition whose campaign can comfortably be completed in little over an hour.

It's a one–trick pony but still enjoyable enough that you will want to return for another ride from time to time.
