(Quick note: my playtime is skewed due to running the game in compatibility mode, it's probably closer to being around 8 hours, give or take a couple hours.)

TL;DR this game feels more like an amazing interactive history of the RPG genre and is a great experience. If you're unsure about buying, wait for it to go on sale, then buy it.

I absolutely loved this game, though I see it as less of a game and more of an experience. While playing, it was like taking a trip through the history of the RPG genre. It was a great way to use the medium to showcase the history of the medium.

The plot may be simplistic and the game itself may be a bit on the short side, but I think it was fairly fitting for what the developers were trying to do with this game. If this game is played purely for the entertainment of playing an RPG, then I can understand why some would think it's not very good and give it a bad review.

I don't know how much that those younger generation (that didn't grow up on the old RPGs) would like this game, considering that most of my personal enjoyment in playing the game came from nostalgia value and feeling like I was actually a kid again. That being said, I think it's worth it to play through the game, even if one hasn't grown up on those older games, as it showcases what games back then were like, and allows players to have a chance to live through that experience.

There are some mechanics that I wish would have been added, such as being able to save from a menu on the world map, but overall it was still very fun.

It also would have been nice if controller support wasn't so wonky? Many players (myself included) have found that controller support doesn't work unless the game is run in compatibility mode (which involves minor tinkering with the .exe file). Thankfully there are guides for fixing this problem available in the forums, though it would have been nice if the devs had taken the time to fix this bug. On that note, running in compatibility mode will remove the ability to take screenshots, access the in-game Steam hub, and record actual play time (hence why my recorded time says 0.2 hours). Thankfully, achievements are not affected, so they will still be recorded when achieved.

On a final note: buying it in the Evoland Collector Pack is an A+ decision because Evoland 2 is amazing (it's developed as an actual game with good plot that uses graphic quality to indicate time period).

The price is low and so should your expectations be.

The game is both short & misleading to some extent. By the looks of the teasers you get the expression that this game will take you through a journey through the evolution of gaming from the first console till current time tech.

"Well how bad could it be" you might ask? Lets put it this way; You bought some chips, but you quickly realize theres nothing inside. Happy times.

First of all. The whole evolution process happens within a blink of a moment. Some minutes of gameplay and you're already "HD". Your Chiwawa was sleeping on your bed, you went to grab some water and by the time you got back your dog is suddenly a St. Bernad.

-Oh boy! What awaits you now that the whole point of the game has happend and you just started?-

Compressed levels inspried by the early Legend of Zelda games, but it just doesnt feel right. Why? Because they tried making their own type LoZ. How did it go? Toilet!

But it gets better! Suddenly you get to do turn based combat. Horray!.. Waite... Why is the only ability i have called attack..? Thats right! No abilities, only "chop-chop" becuase who likes variarity!?

And so it goes for roughly two to three hours cause that's how long it takes to beat this game. You can add an additional hour or two if you wish to do a 100% run.

Games are supposed to give you a good time & make the time fly. This game, on the other hand, tortures you while you're playing the game.

Why should you buy this game?
You get to (barely) play the game in classic/ old fashion style..
You see some familiarity with other great games (Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy ect).
A somewhat feeling of nostalgia.

Why should you buy that bag of chips instead?
You're not going to get what you think you're getting.
Very Short game.
There's no variarity in the game.
The bag of chips does infact have chips inside of it.

Do yourself a favour and buy yourself that bag with chips instead of investing here.

Though Evoland offers an interesting perspective on the evolution of (J)RPGs over the years, its very short length (2-5 hours at absolute max) means there's not a whole lot of content to explore. The obscenely high rate for random encounters (even if meant as a comical element) doesn't help either, and the game's humor grows old rather fast.

It's worth looking into when it's on a sale, but at regular price, it simply does not have enough bang for the buck.

*ignore hours on record*

I really enjoyed the humor and nostalga of this game, and there are plenty of great shout outs in there that are just brilliant. This game is built on a really clever idea which works perfectly and makes for an enjoyable experience. I absolutely loved the way the game evolved, and it really gets you to see just how much gaming itself has evolved.

It wasn't really a full game experience but rather a simplified mash-up of Zelda and Final Fantasy VII (with a pretty fun Diablo section), where the core systems and mechanics were kept to a minimum. I didn't mind this so much, but I would have liked more of the game to explore and enjoy. Thus I'm hoping that Evoland 2 will make up for this.

It was definitely a great way to spend my evening (except for the hour it took to get the game to recognise my controller all due to the dinput8.dll file in the game folder that I had to rename to stupid.dll for it to work... well I guess I didn't really have to insult it but I felt it was necessary).

Pros:
  • Nostalga
  • Great game concept
  • Simple combat and puzzles
  • Good learning curve

Cons:
  • Getting a Xbox 360 controller on Windows 10 to register in game was a nightmare (thank god for steam discussion boards)
  • Short game (spent approx 4 hours and have finished the game and am 3 achievements off 100%)
  • Would have liked more turn based combat options

I definitely recommend this game though if you are a fan of Zelda and/or Final Fantasy and are looking for something that isn't too demanding with a high nostalga value.

This is a clever idea, in theory at least, but honestly just not well executed. The "jokes" are largely not funny, the gameplay shifts so much that, even if there is a part of the game you enjoy, it doesn't last long at all. The game did have some enjoyable parts, but that was more at the very beginning when the game really was evolving. The game may have survived better if you either stuck with one type of gameplay or just shifted and did not return. A lot of the puzzles we're not clever, just annoying. I just can't reccomend a game as poorly executed as this.

This game was a chore to play. Repetitive combat, repetitive bosses, which if you fail, you will be set back about 10 or so minutes. This was terrible.

My two favorite parts of the game was when I first started it and when I finally beat this cancer.

A really unique little RPG.
I love the concept, the music, the graphics and the gameplay for sure.
My only gripe is in the overworld/Final Fantasy-like bits the encounter rate is ridiculous and frustrating.
Besides that it's a really nice game and since it's on sale right now it's super worth it.
I got the bundle and am working through the first title, eager to start the sequel after I'm done.

The first hour or so of Evoland is fun. Its premise -- explore a world where the graphics and game mechanics continuously evolve via treasure chest unlocks -- is a good one, and one that I don't see enough in gaming. It's nice to see the world shift around you, as you go from a monochrome, GameBoy-esque scene with only one usable button to a 3D world with prerendered graphics, and the sense of generational progress really applies to my sense of nostalgia.

If only they taken that idea and run with it.

About halfway through the game, when you go to 3D, the tone of the game noticably changes. The focus of the game is no longer on constantly evolving graphics and game mechanics; instead, the game tries to be a straight-faced clone of Zelda and Final Fantasy at the same time. If well-executed, this would also be a welcome development, but the game from this point onward has no depth; sure, there are Zelda-like dungeons, Final Fantasy-like random encounters and a story going on, but the dungeons have fairly basic level design, the random encounters occur WAY too frequently (one every five-six steps in the overworld), the combat draws from a miniscule pool of enemies, and the story is so shallow that I couldn't bring myself to care about anything. The first hour was great, but from there the game got very dull, very quickly.

Charming indie RPG that takes you through the evolution of RPG gaming's developing styles and designs (From 8-bit turn based to color to 3D sidescroll etc). On the shorter side, but definitely worth a play through if you can pick this up on sale for a few bucks.

A great but somewhat short RPG for all the fans of the genre out there from all the different decades.

So many nods to other RPG's that we all know and love on some level, some subtle, some not so much.

Despite its short playabilty and lack of replay value, this title is worth a look, I wouldn't pick it up unless it was in a sale however.

I personally 100% cleared all the game had to offer in 11 hours, if you play it more casually and don't go for every single unlock in the game it might be a few hours shorter.

Despite this, its still a great game, I look forward to playing the next one when the time comes.

Fun unique little game.
I could see it being less enjoyable if you didnt grow up through the 80's and 90's, and the progression of game graphics.

Still think its fun though.

Evoland is one of those joke games where you progress by unlocking a bunch of the fundamental components of video games, such as a pause menu, sound effects, save points, and color graphics. It presents the joke much better than DLC Quest did (And unlike DLC Quest, actually lasts for over fifteen minutes). However, it makes the terrible mistake of emulating some of the worst parts of the games it’s trying to pay homage to, and forcing you to unironically play through them. Such things include:

  • Areas with random encounters every ten steps,
  • A save point system; dying will make you lose progress and revert back to the last save,
  • Entire rooms filled with invisible pits which only appear when you stand next to them,
  • Enemies which teleport around you, enemies you can only attack from the back, and the ever-popular irritating bats,
  • A painfully slow walking speed within dungeons,
  • No minimaps (For most of the game, anyway)
  • Secret collectables hidden behind fake walls with no hints whatsoever,
  • A ridiculously long desert you’re forced to walk across with random encounters every five steps.

The game starts out showing such promise as you unlock interesting bits of game history such as non-grid-based movement, 16-bit graphics, Zelda items, and eventually hi-def 3D graphics. You will even encounter some puzzles which require switching between 2D and 3D versions of the game. However, this all falls apart about halfway through the game, as the game seems to just run out of things to unlock. Before you know it, instead of unlocking cool stuff like minimaps and combo systems, you’ll mostly be getting messages like “You unlocked fireball traps in the next room!” or “You unlocked an enemy ambush!” …I wish I were joking.

The music is nothing spectacular. Most is forgettable, intentionally generic midi-like renditions for satire's sake.

Then there are the stylistic and gameplay inconsistencies. It seems like Evoland is actually 20 separate programs cobbled together in a big pile. Most unlockables will only work for certain areas of the game; Some areas keep their 2D graphics for the entire game even after 3D is unlocked. At one point, you unlock a minimap that only works for about three areas in the entire game (and not the places where you really need them). Plus, you actually have three different, independent kinds of HP which apply to different game areas (Zelda hearts, RPG HP, and a Diablo-style red orb), and getting “fully healed” in one area will only heal you for that specific kind of area. So you might get healed in the town or drink a life potion, only to discover you’re still at half a heart when you return to hunt for secrets in the mine dungeon. It’s not a very well-polished game in this regard.

I give Evoland a 4.5 / 10. There was obviously a lot of soul and humor put into the game by the designers, but the joke goes a bit too far as the game forces upon you hundreds of tedious random encounters, slow-paced dungeons, and unfairly-hidden secrets. The first hour of the game is decent as a work of satire, but everything after that gets tiring fast. Recommended only for the patient.

(It’s about 5 hours to fully complete for an achievement hunter, but be warned: if you’re going for 100%, you might want to forego the blind playthrough and keep an eye on the guide from the start, since the game gives no indication of which collectables you’ve found already. If you’re not careful, you might have to play the game twice.)

You start as an 8-bit/2D adventurer and evolve into a 3 dimentional beau sabreur on your journey. You get better music, you get a storyline and you get to chop-chop skeletons and come across a new lady friend. Entering caves, you collect crystals, sometimes cards, sometimes stars. You notice there's a village with people in melancholy. Perhaps there's something wrong? And then you discover about the evil which has caused widespread chaos(huh? not really) and decay in the reign.

What Evoland is good at :
  • Strong, visionary concept.
  • Great soundtrack.
  • A great mix of elements taken from the classic oldies.
  • Potrays somewhat good visuals.
  • Real-time combat is fun to meddle with.
  • Reference/citations to some great games.

What Evoland does wrong :
  • Horrendous exceution of an intently created artistic concept.
  • Turn based combat irritates you more than it does to entertain.
  • A very short story of 3 hours that leaves you with quite disappointed.
  • Collectibles are futile to attain.
  • A typical, generic story.

Evoland feels more like a documentary and parody of the classics than it does at being authentic. Perhaps that is the point? Evoland feels fun at times, of course it does. It lives off your nostalgia, being the sole reason you should play it but more often than not it simply name checks. It strives to imitate the plus points of the great games but fails to evolve as one itself.

Evoland is a good game to journey through and revisit memories if you get it for less than five dollars. But if you pay more than that, your experience will seem more unworthy than fun.

My Rating - "Gets the job done"
Traditional Rating - 6 on 10.

What starts off as a promising concept falls badly flat. The first half of the game is all about unlocking more and more features, which is implemented very well, and would have made a great game if they'd stuck with it. But as soon as you unlock "3D" the game just becomes alternately a bad zelda clone and a bad FF clone. The concept of "unlocks" goes out the window, in favor of "whatever gimick we feel like giving you for a short while, then taking away".

The puzzles requiring you to switch between different "eras" are briliant. Pity that this idea was so sparingly and arbitrarily applied.

Bottom line: A great set of ideas looking for a better game.

A short, sweet, but well written love letter to the games of the 80s and 90s, Evoland is a must play for anyone who grew up on classic Zelda, Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. There's even a Diablo level thrown in for good measure. Evoland is quite literally a walk through RPG history, starting with black and white 8-bit and ending with 6th gen level graphics. Nintendo's infamous "rule of 3" is in abundance, as are the frequent turn based FF/DQ battles. The game has a few bugs, and hit detection on some things is a bit off in the Zelda segments, but it's hardly game breaking. I have to stress that the game is short and has little to no replay value, but it's still well worth it for fans of the old school.
