PC PS4 XONE

Developed by Ubisoft, Grow Up for PC, XONE and PS4 is an arcade adventure game with platformer elements, in which action takes place on a distant, colourful planet. The production is a direct continuation of Grow Home published in 2015, which was an experiment project by Ubisoft Reflections known for e.g. The Crew, the Driver series, and the first two instalments of the Destruction Derby franchise.

Plot

The game’s main hero is a research robot named BUD. During galaxy exploration, the protagonist’s space ship – MOM – explodes and breaks into pieces and in the outcome of it, its passenger crash-lands on some planet. However, BUD does not fall into despair and decides to rebuild his mode of transportation – he sets off on a journey with a purpose of finding each ship’s lost element.

Mechanics

Seen from the third-person perspective, the action consists in exploration of a huge world – a colourful, 3D planet surrounded by flying islands which hide loads of surprises. Apart from finding MOM’s every part, you need to collect samples of local fauna and flora and to reveal secrets hidden by particular locations. Similarly to Grow Home, in Grow Up you reach inaccessible places by using young shoots of a rapidly-growing huge plant. Climbing mechanics are also very important – they enable you to move each hand of the robot separately. BUD’s movement set is significantly extended – now he can roll up into a ball, roll, bounce off surfaces, and glide for a short moment.

Technical aspects

Grow Up published on PC, XONE and PS4 is very similar to Grow Home – it utilises colourful and minimalistic visuals that feature simple, geometric shapes and intensive colours.
