It has been nearly thirteen years since the release of the renowned platform game developed for the PlayStation 2 - Ratchet & Clank. The original developer of the classic, the Insomniac Games studio, is now responsible for the games reboot and its first port to a different gaming platform - the PlayStation 4. Ratchet & Clank for PlayStation 4 is rebuilt from scratch when it comes to the technological aspects; however, the characteristic storyline and mechanics we came to know from the predecessors were remain mostly unchanged.
The players take part in the adventures of the foxlike Ratchet and his robot companion, Clank. We are able to experience their first encounter, which led to the creation of the inseparable duo and started the series of a number of Ratchet & Clank games. Our heroes are on a search for Capitan Qwark, a superhero, who is supposedly the last hope of the galaxy, and the only person who can stand against the evil Drek, whose main ambition is to destroy the universe and create a new world for his race - the Blarg - from its matter.
When it comes to the gameplay itself, it is primarily focused around fighting enemies, maneuvering platforms and collecting various findings (e.g. bolts); as previously mentioned, the PlayStation 4 remake offers several innovations in the fields of game mechanics and technology.
