Art. Expression. Nostalgia. Awesome. Erm...control fix? Or is this a if its not absolutely broken like using a broom, case? I get it. I get the story, I think. "A man is most himself when he is not in his own skin."? Anyway, incredible, incredible gem once you understand what's going on. Wow. I would be willing to pay full price for this despite the controls really needing to be more friendly to one's fingers, then again, the broom makes me question. Late to the party but awesome game guys! Can't wait to get this on Steam, etc. and see more of what's next!
Exceptional rpg with Zelda homage This game is breath of fresh air on Android. Well thought out action rpg with Zelda like game play but with different atmosphere and weapons/puzzles. The variety of music and art really gives it a creepy feel. Only problem is control could be more precise. Really wish I could give five stars besides that fact. A steal at a buck.
Beauty beat by boss battle bummer I love the aesthetic and enjoyed playing until I reached the first boss battle. That kind of reflex gaming is not my cup of tea in general, and on a touchscreen it's terrible. I don't think I have the patience to fight the boss a zillion times, and it bites that that means I won't get to play through all the other areas.
terrible rendering The game doesn't render propertly on the shield. Feels like the display moves every so often. The shield game mapping can't stay in the same place because of the rendering glitch. The developer has a warning on the game load of the rendering issue. Maybe its time to go back and rewrite some code to make the display proper. While at it --- make the playable area of the screen larger (wide screen) and make the buttons transparent as an overlay.
Another great game which doesn't support Shield very well. Let's get the bad out of the way first. If, like me, you're a Shield Portable owner, you may well encounter a spot of bother getting Anodyne to run past the initial setup screen. If so, simply press the small brown button at the bottom of the screen, then press Home, and then re-enter the game and your onscreen controls will magically appear! That little bug is the only thing keeping me from giving this game a 5-star rating though. It's a gorgeous, evocative and thoroughly creepy take on 16-bit adventure games, and well worth the £3 it's currently available for!
Old school bliss with a hint of zelda! Love the play mechanics, chiptuneish music and 16bit look. It has interesting light quirky story. The difficulty was just right for me while playing on the nvidia shield. Played a bit on the nexus 7 Play control was as good as touch screens allows. A flaw of the tech as things do get annoying with the lack of physical buttons. I then started over on my new nvidia shield. Created a basic touch profile and was in gaming bliss. Bug on the shield, need to open close and or rotate to correct screen layout.
