Concept de jeu interressant, mais les combats aléatoires sont trop frequents et extrement penibles (et vraiment basiques...). La difficulté est parfois mal gérée, rendant les combats de boss parfois extrement laborieux et rageant (oui oui zephiroth... ). En plus je suis obligé de jouer a ce jeu au clavier car la manette ne fonction pas avec ce jeu pour moi (xbox ou steam controller, aucun des deux ne fonctionne.).

Evoland is a journey through the first few generations of video games. Starting with simple black and white 8-bit graphics that resemble the earliest GameBoys, it slowly evolves into Nintendo 64 era features. Each time the player opens one of many treasure chests scattered across the worlds, new graphical, musical, or sound effects are "unlocked." In this way, the game slowly progresses through the history of action/adventure video games.

Obviously inspired by classics like The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, and Diablo, this game appeals to fans of those games, like myself. Highlights of the game include the unique evolution style, decent music (though sometimes overly repetitive), and a great homage to classic games. On the negative side, the game was a bit too long for me, but only because I searched for every secret room and hidden items. So, without the side-questing, I am sure the game would have been less of a drag. There was included as well in the game a side mini-game, called Double Twin. This was a basic card game twist of tic-tac-toe. Again, an interesting idea, but only good for a few plays, not for prolonged play-time.

This also marks the first time that I have gained all the achievements for a game on Steam... No reward for that except a little self-pride...

It's like mario 64 meets FF 3. Except lacks a really doing either interface/style justice. For example in the Mario 64 style areas, you really need to be able to rotate the camera. And your other chars are basicly useless. And the FF style fights are missing the ability to eith remember your last move used for a char, and auto option, and or at least a way to reorder the menu. And the jumping back and forth depending on the area kinda gets old fast.

Oh and then there is the whole unlocking "game" interface upgrades... which consists of nothing more than walking and unlocking freely open and visable chests... Only upside to this is that you could kinda,maybe choose some of the play style elements you want to have applied to the game. Like "HD" looking gfx or 16bit ?


And it lack any real controller support (It does have "support" for some controllers. But really it's not worth the hassel to try and get them work EVERY time you try to play the game) & doesn't support the nvidia shield tv (lazyness). Both are shame because had nto for this last peice. One might be able to overlook the other issues.

Great idea, fine execution.

Not worth the full price, though, so get it on sale.

Edit: I don't know why it says I only played 0.1 hour. If you check my profile, you can see I got every achievement, which means I completed the game (100%, even). The game is short but not that short.

Let me start by saying this game is pretty excellent, though it has some design errors that are kinda exasperating.

The game is awesome in doing what it wants, giving you nostalgia and making you remember the good old days of your childhood!
The errors in design (like asking you to complete a collection of cards but showing you only X/23 instead of which cards you are missing or earning) are pretty hurtful.
However the concept of this game is pure awesomeness.
I personally, who would like to make my own videogames someday, enjoyed the mechanic of progression in game a lot.

7.5/10 Has some flaws by trying to keep it simple but the concept is pretty awesome and its shortness allows you to not get frustrated that much by its flaws.

Note: I haven't 100%'d the game or played Evoland 2. I beat the game with something like 87%.
A neat concept that leans more "overly referential" than "love letter."
Why don't I like this game? When I go to play a classic RPG, I think it looks beautiful, but now I want to play it on an emulator because without the option to speed up the game I just feel like I'm wasting my time.

Games used to have more of a public stigma and were often called a "waste of time." For some reason Evoland doesn't want to move past that, but, intentionally or not, it seems to imply that /this/ is the pinnacle of gaming. These loathsome turn-based battles wherein I'm not scared I'm going to die from facing four enemies, no, I am scared of the animation of four different characters, which means each. One. Hits. Then. You. Attack. And. Oh. You. Didn't. Kill. It. So. Let's. Do. Another. Four. Attacks. For some reason Evoland stops in this weird middle-ground of floaty combat, dull puzzles, and poorly written dialogue. Evoland fails because it's either too scared to critique or because it doesn't realize we all grew up, and I don't know which is sadder.

Perhaps worse, is that this was a perfect chance to play with genre tropes and yet Evoland decides to mimic tired mechanics.
Who is this for? I don't know. If you like Big Bang Theory's or Family Guy's referential "humor" and you like Zelda and FF7 then I guess this the game is for you. This "humor" is encapsulated by the annoying "beeping" sound when you get to critical health. The game even points it out. "Remember how annoying that was in Zelda? DO YOU REMEMBER?!"

Play the Ludum Dare entry and save your money and, most importantly, time.

You can buy an item that reduces loading times/screens. They thought that on top of slowly unlocking basic features and better graphics, it would be a good idea.

Also the random encounter rate is obnoxiously high and you can't save on the world map, or maybe I didn't unlock that feature?

Not worth the time.

Evoland is a very fun game in both concept and execution. Through out the game you will be taken on a journey through the evolution of games over the years.
"Evoland = Evolution Land".

The game starts out in a retro gameplay style similar to the original "Legend Of Zelda", and your hero is a young boy named Clink which is rather close to Link our favorite Hyrule hero.

Through the game you will see two main combat styles including: an over world random encounter much like "Final Fantasy" and dungeon crawling similar to "Legend of Zelda, Diablo"

Like most games it is dangerous to go alone so early on in the story you will have a heroine join your party. You also receive new items through the game that help you to solve some basic puzzles. Also if saving the world starts being a little too much to handle, take it easy and play yourself a game of double down! Evolands very own TCG game.


It is up to you, save the world of Evoland from the forth coming shadow set to destroy your home. Weather you wish to complete the main story clocking in at around 3-5 hours or 100% completion including (Collecting Stars & Double Down Cards) this game has a lot to offer and will leave a positive impression on you. I look very forward to playing Evoland 2 very soon and if you would like to see the game in action check out my full Youtube playthrough/walkthrough in the link below.

Finished! It's cute, but there are some really annoying bugs (ie-problems with getting the controller to work, and my screensaver randomly starting while playing the game). Also, the "play time" on Steam doesn't seem to be updating (It took me at least 4-5 hours to finish, not 20 minutes...^^;) I like the idea of getting new gameplay and graphical updates as you progress, though I wish that included "save anywhere" and "turn off annoying random battles" options :P

Evoland was a fun little diversion from all of the mainstream games that I've been playing lately. It provided me with some fond memories of old school games, though it came with a few flaws. Definitely worth your time, but don't expect to fill your weekend with just this game.

Good:
  • The action turn-based combat system was very solid.
  • There was plenty of collectables that were hidden decently well.
  • The story did not drag on as some older adventure/RPG games tend to do.
  • The later half of the game looks absolutely amazing.
  • There was a fun little card based minigame that directly tied into the collectables.
  • The Diablo inspired section was very fun.
  • Seeing the game portrayed in all the different art styles was very fun.

Bad:
  • The Zelda inspired combat sections have wildly fluxuating difficulty.
  • The adventure segments lacked any real puzzles.
  • The party size was very limited compared to most RPGs.
  • The game felt a little short, especially for an adventure/RPG game. I beat it in approximately five hours and while I didn't obtain all collectables, I still managed to beat the game with 90% completion.
  • The card minigame's harder difficulties relied a little too heavily on RNG rather than strategy. Despite this, I still managed to beat all dificulties without collecting all the cards.
  • The end of the game didn't really have a solid payoff, relying more on presumed emotional ties rather than a solid conclusion.

It's a fun little game. Not great, but it's not long, so it doesn't have a chance to get bad. It's a very nice little experience I think. Get it when its on sale, don't expect too much, and you can have fun and not be dissapointed.

Fun, creative game with some serious difficulty curves

Evoland is a creative game that does face a few problems. I loved the idea, starting from 8-bit, and transitioning all the way into 3D graphics. It is not limited to the graphics, and evolves as it goes along, fitting the evolutions into the story. It throws in turn-based battles, save points, and nearly any general advancement along the way. However, while all of this is cool, it has a few problems.

  • It's too short; it only has about four hours of gameplay not counting:

  • The difficulty curves. Some areas are waaay too hard, and can seriously hinder progress.

  • Leveling up only counts toward turn based battles. The hard areas are a great example of this. Plus, you don't level up in these areas.

  • Many evolutions don't stay around for very long, or aren't used very much.

Overall: 7/10, still recommended to try

I would recommend this game to people who like to know the evolution of games. It is a fun 2-5 hour exerpince with lots of easter eggs from your favorite games. Zelda, Final Fantasy, ect... If you do not want to buy this game at full price for a short game then I would recommend buying this game when it goes on sale.

I most certainly do not reccomend this. Evoland had been on my wishlist forever, and when i saw it was on sale a couple of days ago, no purchase button had ever been smashed so fast. I've sunk a large chunk of my time into this game, and the dissapointment grows as the game progresses. What started as a cute throwback quickly turned into refrences stitched together with awful combat and even worse playability. the traps are annoying, the dialogue is bland, and the "random battles" make me want to pull my hair out because it happens every 15 seconds. TL;DR dont buy it, you'll regret it.

Evoland permet de découvrir tout les aspect du jeu videoludique depuis le debut.

Franchement je trouve ce concept tres bien réalisé car on voit le passage d'étape par étape des graphisme avec une petite pointe d'humour c'est parfait

Malgré qu'au clavier il ce joue les yeux fermé j'ai voulu jouer avec la manette mais elle ne fonctionne pas il faut faire une petite manipulation que vous trouverai sur des forum mais qui au final, joue sur le temp de jeu il m'affiche 2h ( avant que j'active la manette ) alors que j'y joue depuis plus longtemps donc une fois la manette activé, votre temps de steam sur le jeu n'est plus comptabilisé voila a par ceci :

je le recommande bon jeu a tous ;)

~Evoland = Evolution du jeu vidéo~

"Evolution du jeu vidéo" : mais comment peut on traduire cela en terme de gameplay, me direz-vous ? Rien de plus simple, il suffit de faire évoluer le gameplay en même temps que le jeu avance. Vous commencez ainsi le jeu avec un gameplay 2D, dans des graphismes monochromes avec des pixels ayant la taille du poing. À la manière d'un Zelda, vous devez vous frayer un chemin dans les hautes herbes à l'aide de votre épée, tout en découpant du monstre. Attention cependant car comme beaucoup de jeux de l'époque, le moindre contact peut vous être fatal. Vous débloquez au fur et à mesure, en ouvrant les coffres qui jalonnent votre route, de nouveaux éléments de gameplay comme la présence de NPCs, de quêtes, ou alors de nouveaux éléments en terme de réalisation telle la présence de musiques, de couleurs, etc...

Une fois sur la carte cependant, un tout nouveau gameplay s'offre à vous : les combats au tour par tour.
Ces nouvelles phases vous permettent de combattre à la manière des final fantasy avec une jauge ATB et tout ce qui va avec.
Au fil de votre aventure, vous trouverez un scénario, un allié, des graphismes en 3D et bien d'autre encore !

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.

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.

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.

Its super fun at first. You get that adventure feeling. But once you step foot into the most "realistic" or "recent" part of the game, it goes from a 9 or 8, to a 1 or 0. Its SUPER redundent and has that feeling (at the end) where you feel that putting the game down and just watching a video of the boss would have been more fun.

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.

Jeu plutôt court mais qui nous plonge dans l'évolution des RPG, dans l'évolution du gameplay et du gamedesign. Le point fort de ce jeu réside clairement dans son originalité (jeu évolutif). Un autre point fort concerne les -très- nombreux clins d'oeil envers d'autres jeux vidéo qui ont marqué l'histoire vidéoludique, c'est très appréciable !

Ne nous méprenons pas, je ne recommande pas ce jeu, et pourtant son concept de base est excellent.
Evoland propose de vous faire revivre l'évolution du jeu vidéo dans un jeu vidéo. Vous allez donc faire évoluer la qualité et le type de votre jeu au fur et à mesure de votre aventure. Cette idée est très bonne, c'est indéniable.
Cependant, cette version d'Evoland n'est pas convaincante. En effet, de nombreux points noirs sont à déplorer. Tout d'abord, le scénario est quasi-inexistant. Bien que les créateurs l'assument et en rient, il est assez frustrant de simplement suivre des directions, d'aller dans les différentes zones juste pour suivre une quête un brin légère. Autre frustration: l'apparition de monstres. Tous les deux pas, vous déclenchez un combat plus que répétitif et peu utile puisque vous ne pouvez mettre au point aucune stratégie (mis à part attaque/soin ou attaque/magie). Et la répétitivité se trouve aussi dans les phases de puzzle enfin...
Evoland n'est donc pas aussi réussi qu'on l'aurait souhaité. Terminé à 100% en environ 6h, il sera parfois plus agaçant qu'amusant. Cependant, bien que je ne recommande pas celui-ci, je pense qu'il faut se laisser tenter par Evoland 2, qui semble bien plus abouti, et qui exploite sans doute mieux le concept. Si vous voulez vraiment jouer à celui-ci, et bien... attendez vraiment les soldes.

J'avoue que depuis un moment j'avais envie de vivre cette aventure nostalgique, après avoir vu quelques vidéos rapides.

Le concept du jeu, basé sur l'évolution du personnage au sein des différentes époques du RPG me titillait forcément, ayant grandi avec Final Fantasy, Secret of Mana, etc.

Bourré de clichés et de clins d'oeils partout, les trentenaires pourront effectivement esquisser des sourires à chaque petit référence distillée au fur et à mesure que le gameplay s'étoffera. Mais j'aurais pu écrire s'étouffera, parce que l'on se noie vite sous ces différentes déclinaisons passant de l'action rpg au jrpg, au diablo-like. Autant les combats fouillis en mode temps réel peuvent se passer tranquillement et sans trop de frustrations, autant les passages avec rencontres aléatoires m'ont littéralement rendus dingue! Impossible de faire cinq pas sans se taper une baston hyper répétitive. De quoi annihiler toute envie d'aller chercher les étoiles ou cartes cachées un peu partout dans le monde d'Evoland.

Restent des idées sympathiques dans l'absolu, perdues dans un projet qui a le cul entre la chaise du truc fun développé en game jam et le vrai jeu commercial. Et ce n'est pas la référence à mon film préféré d'amour dans la dernière ligne de dialogue du boss de fin qui rattrapera un ensemble bien trop rébarbatif.

En bref un jeu que j'ai vraiment eu envie d'aimer mais dont je ressors bien trop frustré. Ceci dit je reste optimiste et je ne cracherais pas sur la possibilité de tester sa suite Evoland II.

Don't be misled by the 100% completion I have or the hours invested, this game is not worth playing.
It starts out sort of cute and novel, the premise being that you unlock new abilities as a sort of video game history unfolds before you. But don't be fooled, the facade begins to fall apart within the first 20-30 minutes. A game pitched as a delve into gaming history very quickly unveils its true colors as a simple list of tired references to "gaming culture" with a few lines from movies thrown in for variety. Even if you can handle the completely unsubtle references (the earliest and most glaring one being the retrieval of the buster sword, where they literally say "doesn't this look familiar?" with a straight face) the game doesn't stand on its own in any fashion.

The art is uninspired.

The multiple battle systems suffer every issue from miserable and unfair hit boxes to simple math miscalculations for damage. It pretends to be Zelda, Diablo, FF, and more, and yet pales in comparison to the most rudimentary of battle systems (I wrote a more complex system on my graphing calculator back in 10th grade math) and has zero loot system whatsoever.

The RPG system is literally nonexistant save for 3 items you can buy in the first hour. It pretends to have progression but the numbers don't effectively change anything as the whole game scales directly to you.

The puzzles are long, boring, and unforgiving in required precision at times.

The bosses are tedious and boring, even worse than the 20-year old counterparts they are rehashing.

The random battles do nothing but draw out the length, and trigger frustratingly often.

The writing is sad.

The plot is nonexistant (references=/=plot).

The ending is anticlimactic.

And to top it all off, there's the option to use a gamepad, but it is never mentioned, let alone recommended, and without it, you are limited to 8-way movement, making much of the game much harder than it already is.

I know this was originally part of Ludum Dare, but trying to pitch this for $10 is hilarious. Even at $1 I don't think it's worth playing simply because it intentionally disrespects your time by dragging things out. I'd honestly be more happy with the money I paid if it were 45 minutes long.

Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time or self respect.

This game isn't nearly as cute as it thinks it is.

One of the devs must have wrote an exhaustive list of every cliche in video games, and then put every single one in a checkbox, to use once and then ignore. Pushbutton switches? Okay, walk over one and then never see one again. An enemy you defeat by bumping into a hole instead of attacking? Great, you've got it, moving on now...

Evoland never does anything interesting with any of the mechanics it shows you; it just points out that they exist and then hurries you on to the next mini-achievement or lame fourth-wall-breaking gag. I suspect the developers do this because they realize the gimmick of the game runs thin fast, and they're just trying to get you through it mercifully quickly. Hopefully, they reason, you'll be too distracted by the next flashy graphical effect to realize the game is all smirking irreverence and no substance.

This attitude reveals that the devs don't understand why the games they're aping are great. People didn't like Zelda becuase it had 8-bit graphics, a sword that you can cut bushes with, and the ability to move from one tiny corridor and cramped room to the next. They liked it because the world was expansive and interesting, the combat was challenging but fair, there were actual puzzles where the solution wasn't immediately obvious (because, haha, the JOKE is that the solution is obvious, get it? Isn't this a fun way to spend your time? Haha!)

Evoland isn't a good game, and it's not even a good homage to actually good games, because it merely mimicks the surface of classic gaming. This game is the kind of mass-produced soulless single-severing Nostalgia™ that you see on ThinkGeek or LootCrate. Don't support this.
