Review: Grab the Bottle (PlayStation 4)
The story of the game begins in the 50s, somewhere in rural America, where one particularly strong-minded baby is taking his first steps and discovers that anything is possible. Especially as he seems to have an infinitely stretchy arm.

Very simple looking but it does one thing and does it very well, It is very approachable and can be fun. I managed to do a huge chunk of the game but to be honest it came across more of a now and then game to play due to its repetitive nature. That said its a game that has easy trophies if they are what gets you going. In short, Simple but effective puzzler.
