I Never Finished ibb & obb…Because

ibb & obb

This is another case of the PlayStation Plus blues because I, like many of you out there who have played this game, got this game for free thanks to PS+. While the game seemed a little obscure at the time, I decided to give it a chance because how hard could this game be? If it’s on this list then you know that I never finished it so keep reading to find out why.

In ibb & obb, you can play as both ibb and obb if you play by yourself and will control each little creature by using each PlayStation controller stick making it so that you have to work in unison to complete each level. If you play in co-op mode with another player, one will play as ibb and the other as obb as you make your way through each level trying to do…something. The point of this game is very weird and I really have no idea what the hell this game was about.

Because of my lack of knowledge of this game or any direction given in the game what-so-ever, I played a few times and basically gave up because what else could I do? I tried playing this game alone, which sucked because my coordination at times just sucks and this game expects me to play two different characters by using two different sticks of the PlayStation controller. I’m not saying that this sucks for all games, because it actually worked pretty well for Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. After getting frustrated with my own coordination, I decided to play in the online co-op and had one hell of a time first of all finding someone to play with and then finding someone that I could actually communicate with to get to the point of this game which is still unknown at this point. After a few tries, I called it quits.

As you can see from the pictures above, I was able to get 1 out of the 11 trophies available for this game. It still gives me an A ranking since most of the trophies for this game range from very rare to ultra-rare. This is an extremely complicated game and it has some weird trophies like bouncing a ball between two characters 10 times to finding all of the secret crystals to finishing the game by yourself. Needless to say, I’m in a pretty high rank with this game since almost everyone who plays only has this one trophy which was for completing a level.

Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.

I have no desire to ever play this game again. Yes it still sits on my PS3, just taunting me as I stare at it in disgust, but I really have no plans on playing it ever again unless someone knows this game inside and out and decides they want to spend the afternoon with me getting the remainder of those trophies that I need.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? End up playing it because it was free on PlayStation Plus and fall into that trap of adding another game that you’ll never finish onto your profile? Let me know down in the comments section below and for next week my first PS4 game. I’m so excited because when I first got my PS4, there were a total of 3 games on disc that were available to me and I basically got them all. There was Knack, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. With all of these games in hand, the game that I decided to go with first was Knack. Unfortunately, even though I played through the whole game, I never finished it and I’ll let you know why next week.



  1. Ibb and Obb never clicked with me, either, for the same basic reasons. I don’t think it’s terrible, but there are simply too many better games out there to spend my time raging at this one.

    • I couldn’t agree with you more! I raged so many times with this game, which looking back at it now just seemed pointless.
