“Získali jste 3D režim! Máte úplně novou, třetí, dimenzi!”

Evoland je unikátní (no dobře, koukám, že už vyšel Evoland 2 ;-) hrou. Jde o jednoduché RPG inspirované Zeldou, Final Fantasy, Diablem a bůhví čím ještě. Přes vazbu na všechny tyhle silné značky je ale to nejdůležitější jinde.

Nejpodstatnějším prvkem není postava, její vybavení, dokonce ani příběh - všechny tyhle části hrají jen okrajovou roli. Základem je sbírání beden, odemykající další vlastnosti hry samotné - lepší hudbu, lepší grafiku, nové animace, pokročilejší osvětlení… Zpracování hry se vyvíjí od jednoduché černobílé zhora viděné 2D hry až po 3D. Máte tak šanci projít si vývoj RPG od samých začátků.

Hra je jednoduchá (jen souboje s bossy jsou o malinko složitější) a lineární, cesta vpřed je naprosto jasná. Můžete si ovšem, jako v každém správném RPG, udělat čas od času odbočku a zkusit vyřešit nepovinné hádanky.

Bohužel nevím, jak dlouho mi dohrání trvalo (odhadoval bych to na několik málo hodin i se všemi achievementy). Hrál jsem na 64bitovém Linuxu, který potřebuje ruční zásah do souborů hry a tak mi Steam nesledoval čas.

A přitom o běhu času je Evoland především… myslím, že většinu těch vývojových kroků taky pamatuju:-)

Za kolik stojí: 1-2€

"Jsi naše jediná naděje, věříme ti!"

Po pěti hodinách strávených nad hrou Evoland, mám přímo nostalgické pocity. Hra samotná má jednoduchý příběh ale to nejhlavnější je (jak napovídá název) v evoluci hry. Dost to evokuje pocit, že se jedná o vůbec první generaci her, která kdy byla na menších herních konzolích. (Nintenda, gameboye, atd.)
Místy vám to připomene ("nebo tedy mě určitě!") imitaci s hrami The Legend of Zelda (hrdina, hádanky), počátky Final Fantasy (animace, souboje), Dragon Quest, Diablo, atd.

Začínáte s černobílými pixely a postupně si odemykáváte z truhel další vylepšovátka, které představují zásadní evoluci hry, např. 16bit, 3D, 3D s pixel texturami s nimi navíc savy, páčky, hudbu do pozadí a jiné všelijaké vymoženosti.

Co se týče příběhu, který jsem předtím zmínil, je jednoduchý v tom, že je prakticky přímočarý, vedlejší úkoly zde nenajdete. (Max. do achievementů)
*SPOILER* (Nečti, když nechceš!)
Příběh zní stručně takto, začínáte jako dobrodruh, na cestách narazíte vesničku, kde chtějí abyste vyčistili jeskyni od monster, tam najdete svoji druhou polovičku (healera, parťáka, jak chcete), ta po vás chce abyste ji dostal do její vesnice a vyřešil tamní problém a to porazit antagonistu hry, Zephyra než se k němu dostanete, musíte najít dvě půlky amuletu, projít citadelou pomocí amuletu, kde se vám objeví Zephyr. Bojujete na život a na smrt, dokud nezemře vaše kolegyně a její smrt se jaksi "sloučí" s vaší duší, tak že se zesílí a odemknou se speciální schopnosti. Zephyr se vytratí, vrátíte se do vesničky a se smutkem vesničanů, ze ztráty vaší parťačky, přejí abyste porazili Zephyra, podarují vám vzdušný dopravní prostředek, kam se dostanete k dungeonu co vypadá jako obří strom z Mount Hyjal z Warcraftu. Tam je poslední kapitola hry, porazíte Zephyra, zvítězíte a tím hra končí.
*KONEC SPOILERU*

Verdikt
"Pomstím se Zephyréééééé!!!"
"Budu na tebe čekat!"

Překvapení
- Evoluce hry připomínající ubíhající roky vývoje od prvních her na gameboyi
- Soubojový systém, založený na principu hry Final Fantasy
- Imitace starých známých her

Zklamání
- Přímočarý, krátký příběh
- druhá polovina hry už není natolik záživná jako první polovina

Hodnocení
6/10 - Nedal jsem sice tomu tak vysoké hodnocení ale troufám si říct, že tato hra mě mile překvapila. Patřím právě do té generace, kdy tekrát frčely gameboye a my u toho trávili spousty času. (Pokemon Leaf Green rulezz. :D:D) Takže jsem rád, někdy za čas si ji určitě zahraji.

It's not often that I find myself really enjoying a game but agreeing wholeheartedly with the people who gave it a negative review. Yet, that's what I experienced with Evoland, an RPG that bills itself as a "journey through the history of action/adventure gaming".

Evoland exists more as unrealized potential than as a genuinely good RPG. The gameplay/story elements it gets right are amazing, but it also has many problems that keep it from being a standout in the genre.

The game itself takes heavy influences from the Final Fantasy games. You start out as an random knight in a forest, quickly gaining the ability to do basic things like walk in different directions, fight enemies and learn more about the plot (which is only there for the sake of an achievement joke). From there, you meet a young girl who aids you in your journey and you both set off to defeat the evil lord who's trying to take over the world. Pretty standard stuff.

More than anything else in the game, the plot (and by proxy, the introduction and jokes about various RPG concepts) is really only good for the first hour. Many of the gameplay elements fall apart the further you go into the game.

Chief among them is the random battle system. Not only is it incredibly annoying (you get attacked every few steps on the world map), but there's no real purpose for any of it. You can attack or heal, and you gain levels that give you more HP or magic power, but this doesn't translate to the rest of the game. There are three distinct battle systems - the standard RPG turn-based system, a Torchlight-inspired hack-n-slash with a health globe, and a Zelda-esque dungeon mode with heart containers. None of these systems have anything to do with each other, and there's no point grinding in the overworld.

The same goes for the collectibles you find. There are gamecards (based off Triple Triad/Triad Master from Final Fantasy) that are scattered throughout the world, but their purpose is never clear until halfway through, and playing games with them is pointless. There's a powerful magic attack that unlocks after a boss battle, but you have to wait a very, very long time to use it, and its only use is to kill trash mobs. You get a bunch of items dumped on you during the hack-n-slash dungeon, but most of them don't do anything at all, and the minimap you gain in said dungeon doesn't even work half the time.

It's frustrating, because when the game is firing on all cylinders, it's a wonderful experience. There was a moment where I was trying to figure out a puzzle in a forest, seamlessly switching between 2D Zelda-style graphics and a full 3D realization of the same forest, and marveling in awe at how fluid the transition was. Likewise, there are some amusing jokes and throwbacks to games like Final Fantasy VII and VIII that had me smirking as I played.

The best part of the game is the sense of achievement you get when you find a new chest, and open it for a random surprise. This runs the gamut from increased graphics to gameplay changes, new weapons and more. It's that sense of pursuit for the next unlock that drives my enjoyment of the game.

The gameplay itself is also enjoyable, and the constant belittling of the main characters by NPCs is quite amusing, especially when you can't speak to adults in the early game until you eat a magical seed that inexplicably causes you to age a decade and become an adult.

In the end, I felt that Evoland was a great experience in spite of the problems associated with it, and I'm excited to see what the developers will bring to the table for the sequel (also available on Steam). The evolving gameplay and charming characterization is what sets this apart from a lot of other RPGs.

Definitely worth checking out, if only for the first hour.

I can barely recommend this game. It has a LOT of problems. But overall I feel as a concept it does work well and did educate me into the story of RPG games.

I will start by explaining all the problems I found with the game.

Combat This is probably the biggest problem and will put the most people off buying the game. The combat is incredibly boring. In evoland you have 2 different combat styles. Turn based or normal 8 directional combat. The turn based combat is basically like in games like pokemon except with absolutely no depth to it. By the end of the game you only have the choice of 2 different attacks and a heal ability. The attacks don't do any kind of special effects. Each enemy only has one attack and they don't do any kind of special effects. Then the other combat system is just as boring. It basically consists of spamming the attack button and that is it. You have 1 combo that gets activated also by spamming the attack button but that's it. You also have the choice of using a bow and bombs later in the game but you probably won't be using these. Overall the combat is just not fun in the least.

Random encounters There are sections of the world that when you explore you get random enemy encounters. Again similar to pokemon when you are exploring in grass. These sections are very common and will probably be where you spend the majority of the game. The problem is that you get way too many of these random encounters. You probably get them once every 10 or so steps. Attached to these random encounters is the incredibly boring turn based combat. I found myself extremely angry with the game all while exploring these sections.

Story There is a kinda very lackluster story. It won't catch your attention at all really. The story is basically that you are rescueing a village from an evil attacking it. But the game's main focus isn't really in the story.

Length I completed the entire game in just over 3 hours. Not incredibly long really. I would have liked more. It just seems to be over when you are just starting to get into it!

Checkpoints Very bad placement of checkpoints. The final boss fight is the worst example of this. The checkpoint is placed just before the cutscene with talking to the boss meaning that everytime you die you get the experience of listening to what has to say all over again. Oh how fun! It took me a lot of tries to complete the boss so this annoyed me a lot! Another example is when exploring the dungeons. So when you die all your progress saves ,like enemies dead and doors opened, but you are spawned at the beginning of the dungeon. Why? I have no idea. It just seems like making you do meaningless exploring all over again. And the dungeons are fairly large. On top of all this the game takes you to the main menu everytime you die. There is no reason for a game to have to do this!

But this game does have some merit despite all these annoying issues.

Concept So the concept of evoland is to show the progression of RPG's over time. This includes every element annoying as it may be. This is one thing that it does well. I learned a lot during this. The game evolves as you play. You pick up chests that progress the game through the eras. It gives a great oversight. This is probably the reason that I managed to continue playing despite all the issues and just about redeems the game.

Soundtrack There aren't too many songs in evolands soundtrack but what it does have is good. I love the main menu music in particular. They even have different styles of the same songs such as 16-bit or modern RPG style. The only is that since there are few tracks it can get a bit repetitive after some time.

So if you think you are ok to put up with all the annoying issues of evoland then go ahead and buy it. You will find a game that does actually teach you a lot about the progression of RPG's. If not then you may be best with picking up evoland 2 instead which seems to be a great improvement from this. I am currently beginning to play through that myself and will have a review coming in the coming weeks. It doesn't follow on from evoland 1 either so your fine with skipping it.

Great fun! One of those games I didn’t put down until I was finished.

So before I actually get to the game stuff, I want to point out a couple of things.
The first being that this game seems like it’s a lot better when played with controller. After playing for a short while I tried to use mine and it didn’t work. I had to fiddle around with the files to actually get it to work. Which was mildly annoying and brings me to the second thing. After I fiddled around with the files to make it compatible, the Steam overlay stopped working. Which meant that Steam seemingly stopped recording my play time (hence the pathetic 39 minutes) and I could no longer take screenshots. Which I would of liked to have been able to do.
Either way, I reversed what I did in the files after I finished the game to take a “100% yay me I did something pretty pointless” screenshot. So I’m fairly happy.

Getting back to the game, I thought it was a lot of fun.

I was pretty impressed with the whole aspect of the game’s graphics and features evolving as you played, it gave the game something quite unique about it yet they still managed to keep the story interesting enough that I didn’t just feel like I was just getting a history lesson.

The humour was quite good, the text seemed rather sarky at times and us Brits love a bit of sarky. There is a lot of game references involved in this game and it made it all the more charming for me on top of everything else it has.

I think I was expecting this game to be shorter than it was. I’m not 100% sure on how long I actually played it seeing as Steam seemingly stopped recording my play time. But I feel like I got a good while out of it. So it’s always nice for a game to feel like it lasted.

After I finished the main game I continued playing for achievement purposes. After what felt like a few extra hours, I managed to find and do everything for the 100%. I would say it’s a very easy one to perfect so no worries achievement hunters!

All in all I really liked this game, I would definitely recommend it to anyone that has a slight love for these style games or even just gaming in general. I’m not really sure what the label is for them, but the “handheld Pokémon-style RPG games” is what I’m going to go with.
It was a fun adventure game and I look forward to trying the sequel.


TL;DR : Although might need tampering with to get a controller to work, this game is a lot of fun. It has great graphics, of which evolve throughout you playing, a decent story, a lot of game references, sarcasm and charm. I would say this is definitely worth a go. Especially if you like this genre of game.
It’s a fun little game to play through and an easy 100%.
