"A history lesson in retro adventure games, and as Sips discovered, the deceptively simple beginning gives way to a surprisingly deep RPG system."

Il gioco ha un concept davvero interessante, ma sfortunatamente è davvero breve, ed una volta finito, non ci sono motivi particolari per reiniziarlo.
Grafica e musica si combinano ottimamente tra loro, creando una bella atmosfera di gioco, anche se devo ammettere che la musica di sottofondo, in un paio di aree, alla lunga, infastidisce per la sua monotonia e continua ripetizione.
Ho apprezzato molto i vari riferimenti ad altri videogiochi storici dissemintai per tutto il gioco, ma sinceramente i riferimenti alla serie di Final Fantasy sono troppi ed esagerati, in fondo non è l'unico RPG della storia... Avrei gradito qualcosa di più vario, e più curato nei dettagli.
Nel complesso è un gioco interessante, ben fatto, ma non perfetto, e il suo principale punto debole è la scarsa longevità, legata ad uno storyline semplice e un po' banale.
E' consigliato a tutti gli amanti degli RPG e a tutti quelli che desiderano giocare qualcosa di carino e non troppo impegnativo, senza troppe pretese.

Evoland è un RPG che vuole rendere omaggio ai giochi di vecchia scuola di questo genere.
Ci sono infatti un sacco di riferimenti a Zelda (Il protagonista si chiama Clink; vi dice niente?), Mario, Final Fantasy e anche Diablo.
Descrizioni ironiche, oggetti segreti, piccoli puzzle e dialoghi spiritosi fanno da sfondo ad una storia piacevole e intrigante; e come ogni buon vecchio RPG che si rispetti, ci sono combattimenti ogni due passi.

La cosa più sorprendente di questo titolo è che ogni qual volta troverete un baule, qualcosa di nuovo verrà aggiunto alla partita (la grafica 3D per rimpiazzare quella ad 8bit, un intero villaggio, i classici cuori segna vita sono solo alcuni esempi), rendendolo un gioco dinamico.

Evoland è volutamente semplice e divertente e non va preso troppo sul serio.
Chi lo descrive come noioso è probabilmente un giocatore di nuova generazione, non abituato alle interminabili sessioni di combattimenti ed esplorazione con cui siamo cresciuti noi vecchi gamer.

TL;DR?
Ne vale assolutamente la pena!

per carità, è un bel gioco, l'idea è molto bella, però costa davvero troppo.

ho finito il gioco in 3 ore, non c'è nessun motivo che spinge a rigiocarlo, la trama non è chissà cosa.



nel complesso lo consiglio, ma sicuramente non a 10 euro.

fate conto che io l'ho comprato, in 3 ore l'ho finito e non l'ho più reinstallato e lo avevo preso con solo il 10% di sconto, questo gioco per la durata che ha dovrebbe essere gratuito o costare al massimo 2 euro.



comunque è davvero molto bella l'idea di partire dall'inizio dei jrpg e arrivare fino a quelli più moderni, si passa dalla grafica 2d vista da sopra in bianco e nero e pian piano si evolve fino ad arrivare in 3d e ricco di colori

bought evo land on sale , for 2.5€
its a mix of legend of zelda hack n' slash's system with the rpg elements of final fantasy and the looting system of diablo ( only in one level ) and it uses the checkpoint system and it has some parodies :D
the game is nice , you start as a 8bit charachter , then you evolve by time to become a 3d charachter .
the story is short i could finish it in 5 hours , as for the 100% completion , it was in 10 hours , but even tho , the game is good to be beaten
the soundtracks fits with the game's levels , everything is nice here

9.5/10 highly recommanded

Starts out great, but after an 60-70 minutes it becomes bland and tedious. Great concept but it went to waste. Would not recommend.

Evoland is a game that fails to achieve its potential. With good intentions, it pays homage to the evolution of the video game industry by allowing the player to travel through iconic RPG of the past. However, behind the cute references, Evoland is severely lacking in content.

The majority of the advertised unlockable features (improved graphics, sound, or combat) happen at the beginning of the game. After that, the player is forced to battle through ♥♥♥♥♥♥ renditions of Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda, or Diablo. 95% of the items you encounter are completely useless and combat boils down to two commands: "attack" or "heal". To boot, the level-up and currency system does nothing, making the random encounters both intrusive and useless.

With some fumbling around, I was able to personally discover / beat all the content to the game in a measly three hours. I bet you could do it with just two if you really tried. It's a shame really. Evoland was one of the wishlist games I had the highest hopes for.

Evoland may seem like a good game, however after the first hour or so everything becomes really tedious. Once you've unlocked all the upgrades you're left playing a game who took basic features from several games (pokemon, final fantasy, zelda), and threw them all together, nothing new is really added. The story line is dull and short, and once you complete it there's nothing to do except discover a few easter eggs.

While this game is not the worst out there, I would not recommend it.

the game was short but it was fun!
it has a mixture of final fantasy, zelda and a little bit of diablo. If you are looking for long playing RPG, this game isn't for you. and the joke is only relevant if you are FFVII player. You are playing as a hero that will save the world, the story is very shallow but that's not the selling points. It teaches you the history of RPG from era to era. at first you are in 2 bit mode (4 color with bevel) something like first gameboy and then you get 16 color then 256 color. The game are evolving each time you open treasure. I really like when you are able to explore the worldmap in mode 7 (It was introduced in FF IV SNES If I'm not mistaken). I beat the game in 4 hours, the game didn't quit correctly so it shows my playtime is over 100 hours :(.

so to put if brief:
pro :
- great game for nostalgia
- you are playing the game with different control/mechanic
- You are clink (cloud link) and your partner is kaeris. Her uncle is Sid and your enemy is Zephyros! LOL
minus:
- too short
- the hidden object/secret are too obvious
- story is too linear

I recommend this game, but for the full price I personally think it's expensive for 4 hours+ game. I got mine from humble store when it was $1.99 and it was worth every penny!

cute game. great for reliving your rpg glory days or as a beginner rpg.
the game jumps between zelda and final fantasy fighting styles.
most dungeons being zeldaish and the world map is more final fantasyish.
don't expect to much depth but what is here is very good.
the game is on the short side at about 3 hours of playtime. give or take

i do feel random battle happen a bit to ofter and potion don't work in zelda form otherwise i enjoyed my stay in evoland.
(the potions are not really that much of a issue other than feeling deprived)

As much as I want to love this game for its creative concept and funny references, it just plays so slow and is extremely tedious. Controls are clunky, moving in only 8 directions, you cant attack and move at the same time, and random encounters in the overworld are very frequent.

Exploring isn't rewarded very well... Save your money for something else. :(

An extraordinary journey through the history of video games, you start as an 8-bit version and end on a 3D version of the game. Puzzles are fun but the turn based battles and the soundtrack starts to get annoying in some moments, but overall is an excellent game which ends before getting tiring and that is great.

I have mixed feelings about this game. It begins awesome all the way up to the cave. I hate the cave. You're thrown into a pokemon-style battle every 10 SECONDS. I enjoyed playing through and it was a good first game. Exited to see more from this company!

This game has easter eggs and references from Mario, Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Diablo, Skyrim, Dragon Quest, League of Legends and Crash Bandicoot! Seeing and discovering all these easter eggs and references for yourself in this game Evoland is something awesome if you enjoy any of the game series mentioned above. This Indie game is about the evolution of gaming in a JRPG gerne. Gamers who love JRPGs, this game is MUST MUST BUY! BUY IT NOW! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!? The gameplay is amazing, The story is great with all the easter eggs and references from other video games and the Soundtrack of Evoland is absolutely stunning! You won't have any regrets buying and playing this game. I can assure that with you all 100%. I really don't know why you are still here reading this, You should of bought the game already!

Score: JUST FUN! out of 10

Note to the developers: The soundtrack for Evoland was just great, awesome, really good... i can keep on describing the soundtrack all day long and that's why it would be a really good idea if us gamers had the opportunity to buy the soundtrack on Steam. I sure would and most others certainly would too! :D

Small, Retro RPG which put more original gameplay mechanic in one game like Diablo, Zelda and Final Fantasy 7. I finish game about 10h which 100% complete, very enjoyable and fun. If you like RPG turn base, and hack and slash with some unique retro still i definitly recommend this game to you :D 8/10

Playing Evoland is like traveling through time. For all those people who started playing video games in the 1980's, it's a nostalic trip back to these good old days.
But even if you got infected by gaming fever later in your life, you will enjoy this game.

Starting in a black and white environment, the game itself envolves to a modern 3D game - all these while you are playing a nice RPG with some secrets to discover.

Some hours of gameplay just makes you wish for more.

Do not expect an epic tale of love and chivalry.
This is a simple game for those who want to relive the old time games and laugh at silly references.
It is very short - if you're not achievement hunting you may even be able to clear it within an hour - and there's no real replayability, but I still encourage people looking for a fun in-betweener to give this game a try.

I look forward to Evoland II :)

What seems to have originally been a game jam nod towards the evolution from 8bit to cd-rom JRPGS, there's actually a bit of a story and sub card game in here. It only took a few hours to complete, but it was a good few hours, i would highly recommend this for anyone that enjoyed playing Final Fantasy back in the day.

This game is one of the short games that is worthy to buy. Well okay the prize is still to much for 3 hours gameplay but when they make a sale you should buy this game f you like RPG´s. You travell in a short line through the history of RPG. Started with 8-bit Graphics to unlocking colors and 3d model´s and shader´s and Antialiasing. Okay as RPG creator i can say the story was build randomly like: I think i try something and writte a old script down. But the story isn´t really the factor on this game. It´s just funny to see how the game change with time and some nostalgic players will fell really emotions to thinking about their childhood and old-school game formats.

Many Tetxt, short sense:
It´s only to expensiv but still worthy to play.
