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.
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.
Memories... It's like if "Earthbound" and "Zelda: A link to the past" had a freaky lovechild, they'd then name it Anodyne. It's absolutely amazing how spot on this game mimics the old SNES style. I'd have given it 5 stars if it weren't for the most frustrating controls known to man on my galaxy s4. There's been many a moment where I was tempted to hurl said phone across the living room after walking into the same hole in the floor about 8 times in a row. That being said, I'll let it slide since the game is so amazing.
Good nostalgia, bad play control The graphics and sound are nice, and it's great to see a game in the Zelda mode here on Android. But the play control here is really not good - hit detection is unforgiving and imprecise, and the virtual d-pad is difficult to use. Particularly after the jump mechanic is introduced, the game approaches unplayable. Really wish it supported external controllers.
