Hearkening back to the classic days of Banjo-Kazooie, Jak & Daxter and Psychonauts, The Last Tinker: City of Color is a bright and breezy adventure platformer that offers a pretty lightweight fable wrapped in a vibrant and entertaining world.
At six hours The Last Tinker isn’t the most complex or deep action platformer you’ll ever play but that’s ok – it doesn’t set out to be that way. This is a gentle romp through a fantastically realised world. The art-style and characters make it a special experience and even though the final few levels are a bit of a let-down with their formulaic design, The Last Tinker is worth picking up just to drink in its handcrafted visuals and feel-good vibe – when was the last time someone said that about a videogame?
In a world where creativity has given way to conflict, a young street kid living in the slums of Colortown seeks to restore the spark of imagination to his hometown. As Koru, you must harness the power of color to defeat the Bleakness and make Colortown vibrant once again.
Help the young boy Koru save Tinkerworld from the all-devouring Bleakness. Use the power of those colors to aggravate (red), frighten (green) and grieve (blue) your enemies as you manipulate them to solve logical puzzles and overcome various obstacles.
Explore the beautifully handcrafted districts of Colortown with agile Koru infree-running fashion and meet various fantastical and charming creatures. Return the colors to Tinkerworld in this tale about the power and beauty of imagination.
