I’ve loved what I have played so far. Can be annoying to turn around and see what’s behind you but I guess that’s how you play, stood up might work better. Found all bots on world 1 and found and topped three challenges. Missing two in world one

Full completed World one now + challenges.. that hook shot one was a bit of a bastard. World two complete with all bots, not having much issues finding bots although some of the challenges are hard to find. Loved the underwater level especially that trophy ;) :wub:

Amazing wee game isn't it.

The last time I felt amazed like this was Super Mario 64.

World 3 finished, all bots, challenges found up to this point plus all challenges completed to gold up to world 4

World 3 was genius

I forgot to mention before how good the water is in this game, not sure if its technically doing anything amazing, but it looks amazing.

I did like the first water level when you came out with seaweed on your head

I love the little touches like the seaweed, or how in the water he can swim up and stick to your headset.

Oh, and the little rubber ring he wears in the water is great!

Astro Bot, a Nintendo-quality platformer that also takes place in VR, is not only good, it's very good. It's game of the year material! Probably! And yet, I suspect a great many won't play it because they've made up their mind on VR. I get it. You're talking to someone who owns three different headsets, yet can't be arsed into using them for months at a time. Astro Bot is worth it. Borrow someone else's headset if you have to. Thank me later.

World 4 complete with all bots, challenges found and completed. Wasn’t as impressive as world three and the challenges where far easier than any other I have done so far. The only one I had to do a few times was the bouncing one.

To be fair even the harder challenges were fun to play, the only one that gave me the most issues was early on where you had to use the hook shot against the clock

And Platinum Trophy, what a game this was. Wasn’t expecting this at all even with all the glowing reports.

Some of my favourite bits

Slowly working my way though it and savouring as much as possible, just finished W4 tonight and have all bots and chameleons so far from the World stages, done about 10 challenges and all 2 bots collected from the ones I've done.

If you take your time and look everywhere you shouldn’t have any issues finding bots and chameleons. Their sounds are distinctive, if you wear headphones it’s pretty obvious. Only a couple of levels I needed to go back through.

Challenges are mostly easy, a couple of timed runs can prove a little more challenging but just learn the course and you’ll be fine.

Couple of trophies I found by accident which I think would be difficult to get.

It’s more of a challenge in getting all bots for me as I can’t strawberry floating hear anything.
