More like ugly duckling
In “The Unfinished Swan” ($15 download for PS3; rated Everyone), you play as Monroe, who keeps a painting of an unfinished swan that his recently deceased mother painted. As the game unfolds in a series of stark white levels, you use the controller to fling paint splotches all over the place. The paint slowly reveals the design, and along with the swan (which acts as a pseudo guide to each mission) you partake in solving puzzle after puzzle.
The game is rich with moving music and the act of discovery as a game-play element feels novel, until it fails to reach a proper crescendo and thus feels monotonous. Younger gamers with a thirst for discovery might take to the game with gusto, while veteran players might wonder what all the fuss is about.
