This game is similar to other types of puzzle platformer like Braid. One unique aspect of this game is the ability to craft your space ship any way you want through parts and pieces that are collected during your platforming adventure as well as use them to solve puzzles. The gameplay is pretty average as in side scrolling from point A to B with the physic based puzzles that can be solved easily. Very interesting game indeed as a platformer with cool ship building.

Bob Came in Pieces is about the millionth indie physics-based puzzle game to come out in the last few years. What sets it apart from the herd? Not much.
Graphically, it doesnt have much going for it, which is understandable for an indie game. Still, its visual style is still somewhat appealing and certainly won't detract from your gaming experience.
What will is your reason to play this game. No plot, no reason to play, no real progression. It feels almost mind-numbingly average. The puzzles are fun for a while, but they are extremely repetitious and will bore just about anybody.
Regardless, the asking price is what bumps the game up a few points. It's cheap fun, and that's always a good thing.

I had been pretty interested in this game from the moment I heard about it. Collecting ship pieces that allow you to solve physics-based puzzles seemed like a fun concept. The plot is a bit reminiscent of Pikmin (in that you're a tiny rocket pilot trying to fix your ship) in a charming way. However, an engaging plot and fun gameplay mean nothing when the game repeatedly crashes. I am unable to progress past a certain point rather early in the game because of these crashes. I have researched this problem and have found that I am not the only person by far to experience this game-crippling problem. There have been no updates, so it remains unplayable for me. I liked what I played, but I would strongly caution anyone interested to read up on the problems people have had with this game. If I purchase a product, I should be able to enjoy it.

I have to say straight away I wasn't a fan of the game. I have to admire the premise, but the physics puzzles weren't that involving or quite intuitive enough to make the game truly enjoyable. The aspect of adding parts to your ship to adapt to certain puzzle situations is innovative, it didn't strike me as all that magical after the first few additions. Ultimately you just end up trying to accomplish a task with a ship that's not ideal for the situation simply because you don't want to deal with the hassle of changing your ship setup. Being a fan of innovative puzzle games as well as building random things, I thought this might be a perfect blend for me, however it comes up short at every turn leaving me with a game in which I've invested a small amount of time and have no intentions to continue. Some may enjoy it as there aren't any glaring functional issues, but it's not for me.

Despite the gruesome name Bob Came In Pieces is actually a nice little Indie game. You have to travel around collecting parts for Bob's spaceship but the way in which you assemble them will determine how you solve the puzzles. The whole thing is physics based but the 25 levels are over before you know it. At this price however its a steal.
