Decent game,
the main annoyance is the extremely EXCESSIVE amount of battles you get pulled into in the overhead world, while you're trying to explore. Even Final fantasy didn't throw them at you THIS OFTEN. If these turn based battles were anything more than spam spacebar to attack, maybe I wouldn't mind, but this seriously kills the game for me..

Aside that, not much depth, story or stuff to collect,. the only real reason you'd want to play this is the fairly easy 100% completion achievement.

Original only for the fact that there's no other game exactly "like" it, but it doesn't have much content of it's own that hasn't been ripped from zelda or final fantasy.

Really well made nostalgia trip for any jRPG fan, but not necessarily a good game on its own. Evoland takes you through the "evolution" of the genre with ideas and mechanics taken from titles such as Zelda, Final Fantasy, and even Diablo. It's really clever, original and quite accurate, as it shows not only how the games changed from the gameplay standpoint, but also on the audiovisual level.

That said, on its own Evoland is not a great game. It's simple, linear, often tedious. About halfway through you unlock the "final" graphics style, but there's still a lot to do. At this point the game starts to drag on, as none of the combat systems is fleshed out, enemy variety is very small, levels are hard to navigate without a map, and the story is basic and straightforward.

I'd still recommend it as a cute and funny experience. Any person familiar with some of the old-school RPGs will find a lot of references here. Plus, the game isn't long, so it may be worth getting during a sale.

A journey through the history of RPG's. The Idea is interesting, but unfortunately not enough is done with the concept. The game is repetitive & eventually boring. The cardinal sin however, is the throwaway story. Sure, you can argue this is done for the sake of parody, but even than the game underneath should at least be passable. Evoland is only 3 à 4 hours long, but most of it was highly forgettable.

This may be a love letter to RPGs, but not only does it fail to provide original content in any way, it focuses too much on the boring content of the genre. The combat is boring, the dungeons are poorly designed and extremely simplistic, all of the characters are flat and the only interesting part of the game are the throwback in-jokes to past games like Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy which fall on deaf ears for anyone who hasn't played those games.

If you want a playable history of slogging through all the most pedantic and irritating parts of the RPG genre, then Evoland is for you.

Gee, I don't think I have a strong opinion either way with this game.

On one hand, the references to Zelda and Final Fantasy are humorous if you've played them, particularly FF7, but otherwise, you won't understand the simple nods towards the two series. The throwback to the 80's, I believe, is interesting. It really makes you appreciate the progress that has happened in the last few decades. Honestly, it was eye-opening, as I didn't grow up in that era. It was fun seeing the game itself grow.

Still, despite the humor and nostalgia, Evoland doesn't really offer anything new. The story is rather short and can be completed in 3-4 hours. I honestly do not remember the story. What I do remember is that I went through dungeons, found the hastily created boss, beat him once, then again in another form. The combat is boring; it's either slash, drop a bomb, or try to aim at moving enemies. There's nothing original about it. Combat in 3D mode is LoZ while open-world combat is classic FF mixed with 3D character models. It's basic, to sum it up.

All in all, I suppose I'd recommend it. The Steam achievements are fairly easy to 100%, and if you're stuck, there are 3 wonderful guides to finding everything. However, it is rather short. Get it on sale if you're bored and have a few dollars lying around.

Sad to say, this is like lots of games you remember fondly, except not actually good.

There are much better homages to retro games here on Steam. Things that do it better, or cross the old with the new. One I would recommend is "A Pixel Story", though the gameplay is 2D platforming rather than RPG.

We also have such things as "Virtual Console" and PSN and GOG nowadays selling older games, and there even some oldies here on Steam; you're much better off hunting down actual downloads of these classic games and playing them for a while.

This was certainly better and longer than expected.

In its core it is mostly Zelda and final fantasy gameplaywise, with short references into other games, thus this being part of what (admittedly small) length it has. It uses those 2 rather well though, allthough the random encounters felt far too frequent. You unlock new graphics etc. by opening chests zeldastyle.
To get 100% you will probably need a couple more hours without google, since the game is pretty good at hiding goodies or even entire areas and at locking them behind puzzles. Without any sidedestractions id say you will beat this in 3 hours at most though.
There isnt a reason to go 100% other than the sense of achievement either, since the game isnt exactly keen on giving away cool stuff, which is also part of what bothered me: I beat your little mini cardgame with 10 cards, in every difficulty I dont WANT the other 13, I dont WANT another hidden star, i want some cool kind of equipment.

The music is pretty decent sometimes but mostly just gets the job done. Perhaps I entirely missed so many hidden audial messages in the music, aside from the expected 8-bit to 16-bit etc switch, but in case I didnt I think it would have been decent to think of something there, since this tries to represent the evolution of games and boy did music evolve with it.

Graphicwise it is pretty cool that they added quite a few layers between first and final graphics (with jabs at "HD" versions of stuff from the past that still looked like crap), but I still feel like they could have done more steps in between, and the final graphics look kind of ugly in my opinion as well. Going fruther than that would have also enabled more steps in between.

The story is absolutely not worth mentioning, it wont be why you played this, same goes for character development etc.

All together I love it though, it is full of hidden references, it copy pastes gameplay from the other games in ways that work well and I love the idea in general, very decent for a part 1 gonna play part 2 now and hope a lot of things improved. Is it worth 10 dollars though? Hmmm that depends on if "well that was kinda fun" as a result after 3 hours is worth 10 dollars to you. I guess most would say no and should wait on a sale

This game is like a memento for classic RPG games, and it's a good one. The story is nothing special, and random encounters at one point can be rather boring/annoying, but the overall atmosphere and difficulty are compensating that.

Evoland is exactly what it advertises itself to be. It truly felt more like a tribute to the history of video games than a video game itself.

The game is filled with (really not subtle) references to some popular RPGs or more precisely Zelda, Final Fantasy and Diablo.

Because the way it's described you'd expect much more from this game but it's very short. Completing the game, collecting most of the stuff you find along the way, takes around 3 hours only. It's divided into a few segments that explore different genres.

It's honestly more about unlocking game elements than the game itself, which provides very little challenge and overly simple gameplay. That being said, unlocking stuff is pretty exciting and I was always looking forward to see what I would unlock next.

The game is often clever, loves to poke fun at you and is pretty funny in general. Another game that is a really cool and clever experience without being all that much of a game by itself.

11$ is a bit much for a game that you can finish in 3 hours, however. So I'd suggest getting this on sales, definitely worth a few bucks but nothing more.

Unpolished, boring to play, simplistic design and puzzles, droning music, incredibly dull and misplaced turn-based combat with no depth. The fact that this is a "history lesson" in adventure games does not excuse it from the fact that it is a history lesson in what makes games f*cking terrible.

Short, interesting and colorful(atleast when you unlock 16BIT colors ;D ). This game offers history of RPG`s in a 1 small package. You unlock "updates" to your game through treasure chests and this keeps you on your toes that you surely find em all. Easy game, but 10 euros is a little too steep price for this game. For 5 euros? Sure, give it a try. Love has been poured to this little game and its soundtrack, i loved the game whole 3h it lasted.

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.

Might not be the best RPG around in terms of story and lenght, but it features a very interesting concept of multiple environmental and combat systems which can be found througout the history of RPG games (i.e. Legend of Zelda, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy and Diablo game mechanics and graphics, among others). As you continue through the game, you'll unlock new mechanics and new graphic modes which resemble the next step in the genre's evolution - hence the name "Evoland". It's worth the price for a couple of hours of fun, a nice story and a look through the story of the genre.

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.

When I went into this game, I was really looking forward to it. A nostolgia trip that takes you through the best of top down adventure, RPG and turn based battles. What is actually here is a brief parody game poking fun at itself and tropes across two decades of game genres and technological advances.

To my dismay, Evoland bluntly tells you, you're in this era of RPGs. I guess its meant for comedy, but I just didn't care for it. You'll unlock different eras of games and different technologies, such as sound effects, music, 16 bit graphics, high definition textures, 3D battle systems and so on. Its all part of the joke. You'll see all the stereotypes and tropes here and the game will be quick to point them out to you so that you'll understand its a joke.

Evoland has great graphics, and some gameplay elements that would make for a great game. This feels like a good tech demo since every era is so brief with no depth. I can understand paying $5 if they use this engine to make a real full fledged game, but you'll breeze through this game with no challenge. I would say its the perfect game for kids, but with so much hinging on nostalgia, kids might not understand.

You'll play in top down Zelda segments, using a sword to cut down grass, bombs to blow up walls and arrows to transfer fire between lit and unlit candles. Eventually that top down will turn into a 3D version of itself which you can switch between using crystals. Its a nice system that I would have liked to see a lot more of if not be its own game. There are Final Fantasy 2 style towns, random battles and turn based combat, but there is no depth to combat. Its all turn based fighting where your main character has no skills. The secondary character has spells, but nothing lost for using the spells like a traditional turn based RPG would have. Eventually the old school RPG updates itself to be 3D later on in the game.

Eventually, you'll find a Final Fantasy 8 style town. After that you'll find a Diablo styled dungeon with gold, health orbs and loot dropping on the ground for you to collect. It felt like a button mashing chore to get through it. Nothing intelligent to the gameplay, just button mashing.

In the game you'll collect gold, cards and stars, but other than that, there's not much going on. There is little need for gold since there is barely anything to buy. The stars just go to an achievement. The cards lead to a Final Fantasy 8 inspired mini game that is nice to play where your cards have numbers on each of the four sides of the cards and you lay them down in a grid of 3 by 3 to determine who has the most cards once you've thrown down. It is a great feature to have and they went the extra mile to include it.

With that said, the game just feels so hollow, all style, no substance. There is no storyline twist, such as an evil wizard devolves the land once you've easily breezed through the evolutionary eras. I knew how far I had progressed based on what evolutionary stage I was on. It just felt disappointing. Since there is no depth, the combat is really just tedium if not button mashing. The focus was on making the game feel like the other games we know and love.

As a comedy game it missed its mark with me in the 3 hours it took to complete it. There were definitely highs and boring lows. If it was more difficult the game wouldn't be fun after the laughs wear off. I've gone through it twice now and disliked it more the second time.

Evoland is a charming tribute to the history of RPGs. Obviously influenced by The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Diablo, there's a lot to love in this indie gem. You'll traverse the annals of video game history as you move from early 8-bit games through 16-bit and 3D, gaining little bonuses along the way that poke fun at RPG stereotypes. I smiled on more than one occasion at the humor in the game, and I was always looking forward to the next technological progression of my character.

In a way, Evoland presents as a haphazard combination of themes. On the one hand, you have the excellent unlockable tributes to video game history. You unlock the ability to enter houses, you gain the ability to fight, and you'll be able to fight random enemies. All good, and all evenly and comically presented. However, the game eventually becomes a casual RPG with a light story that features frequent testaments to the major moments in RPG classics. While it is a little jarring to have your little world suddenly begin to be fleshed out, it makes sense mechanically and keeps the game moving.

As you journey on through this adventure, you'll play a collectible card game, solve Zelda-style puzzles, find optional collectible items, and enjoy many different modes of play. Evoland is something special, and anyone who looks upon the roots of RPGs fondly will enjoy this nostalgic love letter.
