"Simultaneously, the game creates a sensation of lost, but not abandonment. In this, you are in a mysterious world, unfamiliar and bizarre, yet the eerily nostalgic design instills the necessary knowledge to proceed in your adventure."
The Ambivalest

"Sean Hogan and Jonathan Kittaka have made magic with this game, creating a world that I could be afraid to enter but never want to leave...The locations are vibrant and detailed, going to all manner of different places...[the music] can take the visual mood and shift it into territory that pixel art shouldn't be able to inhabit...I know we're only in February, but this has Game of the Year written all over it."
Mash Those Buttons - 4.7/5

"Anodyne can be as funny and charming as Link’s Awakening on occasion, but the overall tone is one of unease, with a subtle malevolence – the ‘something seems a bit off here’ factor – reminiscent of the indie horror Lone Survivor. Meaning is elusive, but themes and motifs soon begin to take form, in a game that feels increasingly personal the more you burrow into it."
PC Gamer - 84/100

I Like:
+ beautiful art style and musical score
+ satisfying balance of combat and puzzles
+ enjoyable combination of nostalgia and surreal settings
+ good gameplay
+ great atmosphere and story
+ beautiful and unique environments

I Dont Like:
- jumping puzzles get annoying
- promising storyline loses its focus
- hunting down collectible cards feels like filler
- lasts a little longer than it should
- difficult to find your way around the overworld and remember where dungeons are located

Created by two-person developer Analgesic Productions, in a 16-bit-styled world is a tapestry of lightly strange, largely unexplained locations, evoked by a moody, dream-like soundtrack.
The game’s non-story begins full of mysterious potential. Two shadowy figures tell you to find a third shadowy figure.
Anodyne‘s story, which is itself abstract and simply used as motivation to begin exploring the world—begins with the Village Elder summoning our hero, Young. For the duration of the dream, however, Young is the vocally silent protagonist, swinging a broom as a weapon and travel the country in search of positions of power.

Dungeons are filled with riddles, playing into the hands of Anodyne dust sweeping mechanic, but never reach a climax in the design filled. Collectible cards involving the game’s NPC’s and enemies are involved somehow. You’re thrust into a gloomy, creepy fantasy world, and the existence of Dark Secrets is strongly suggested. The whole world is connected by a series of portals, the main portal hub helpfully informing players which areas still have cards to be searched out. Meanwhile,the extensive dungeons are all tracked helpful from an in-game map that shows which paths are not met.

Fans of the genre should enjoy them a bit, but a fair few will be left unfulfilled.
Anodyne is a surprisingly lengthy 16-bit Zelda inspired adventure filled with much to do in a beautifully crafted world. It stays close to its inspirations and risks growing repetitive, but Anodyne’s darkly surreal atmosphere is gripping.

Score: 72 / 100

Writing this review such a long time after finishing Anodyne leaves me grasping to describe the game.

Zelda by way of Earthbound seems to be a good summary though. Basic combat, sometimes awkward controls and movement set in a very unusual world that often tries to throw bizarre metaphors and philosophical discussions at your mute protagonist.

At this point though, the few people who have not played the game would be remiss to pass up on the opportunity to play this delightfully unique game, especially with how often it is on sale and features in bundles. There's the enough challenges peppered throughout, accompanied by an effectively simple soundtrack and the dialogue does have a few moments of humour and insight.

It's basically existentialist Zelda on acid with less combat.

This is a weird game. It's got the appearance of a classic zelda game, but there are more areas where you just wander around and talk to random people. You also don't so much unlock sexy new combat abilities and weapons, but just unlock new areas with new traps and puzzles to deal with. There are still boss fights, some of which will give you a challenge, but don't expect the non-stop action of a zelda game. This is much more of an exploration of the mildly dark and mildly bizarre. Not for everyone, but I think many people will find it worthwhile.

Similar to surreal games like blaster master or earthbound, cute characters with strange dialog for example. The background music sounds like zen music.

Anodyne is a zelda-like with a strange unsettling themed world. I really don't have a grasp on what's going on yet other than I'm in a strange place trying to open portals to different areas. The HUD and the gameplay are exactly like Zelda classic. Your weapon is a broom which can be used to hit enemies, but also can pick up dust on the ground and place it for platform puzzles. You search areas for dungeons which you can enter and complete puzzles to fight a big boss. The art style is pretty classic 16-bit low resolution pixels. The beginning music is really annoying but the music from areas I'm in now are getting better. The programming/UI itself seems glitchy and could use some polish, but the engine is actually pretty good. Honestly, I'm enjoying it so far. I just wish I had a better grasp on what was going on. Also nothing has really jumped out at me as being awesome that separates it from Zelda. It's really just 100% Zelda clone so far with a strange feeling of unease.

Brilliantly dreamt up but executed with a few flaws. The atmosphere surrounding this game is incredible, unbelievably oneiric. This game is pretty polished and will definitely be enjoyed anyone who has loved top-down Zelda games (Link to the Past, Oracle of Seasons/Ages, etc). Made for the older crowd, it has a few suggestive themes that seem oddly places but shouldn't hamper gameplay. The polish seems to wear off near the end with the final stages/chapters (don't want to spoil anything) yet keeps a good incentive for those that want to go back into the game. Personally, I enjoyed the first time through and would love to see a spiritual successor by the creators. Two thumbs up.

It's as if you had a dream, You're playing A link to the past and then wake up playing a different game. The Zelda classics influence has seeped into Anodynes subconscious and is better for it. Even within the first hour the areas you encounter are varied but share a distinct ambient feel reminiscent of Addams Family Values for the SNES and A Link to the Pasts penchant for tooled puzzles. The music pushes curiosity and retains a sense of exploration and puzzlement as the text is cryptic and at times humorous leading you to one area after another. My one nitpick is that the game may be a bit too easy, or at least for those who've been around top down RPG's like Zelda before. None the less there are not enough games the can be played for simple exploration and promote more relaxation that hard grinding and I'd recommend it to any fans of Zelda or someone who's looking for a game to sit and chill with at night.

This is a mix of Earthbound and Zelda. It has surreal aspects and themes, some old school zelda-like dungeons and combat, with the humor and deep side of Earthbound. It is a crazy good game, you just get drawn-in and can't lose interest in this world. Unique and original game. 9.5/10

Anodyne is a deliberate Zelda clone that takes the dreamy world of Link's Awakening and applies it to a more modern-day hero. While providing a fun and tight gameplay experience, it also raises questions about the state of the Gamer generation, about friendship, and about fitting in.
Although crippled by bugs (if you try to break the game, you will break the game), I highly recommended this for the colorful, retro visuals and the fantastic soundtrack.

Anodyne is a brilliantly designed adventure that translates well-worn mechanics into a package that feels genuinely new and exciting. While an over-reliance on frustrating jumping puzzles keeps it from greatness, it's a remarkable achievement for its tiny team – a freaky, fascinating exploration of the darker side of gamer psychology. 10/10

Zelda-esque. Slightly more confusing than Zelda, and the puzzles are just as hard. Oh, and your weapon is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ broom.

Anodyne is basically a Legend of Zelda clone, but it's a good Legend of Zelda clone, with familiar mechanics, original art, and a weird psychological plot. Recommended for any LoZ fans.

Anodyne is small, 2d-Zelda-like game. It remindes me a lot of Links Awakening, with the world being a dream and the jumping-puzzles, although the latter being much more present in this game.
It is quiet simple, your only weapon is a broom. Enemies have a good variety and the levels are very well designed, especially the dungeons. They require some thinking to solve the puzzles and the game does not hold your hand, which I think is good. Reminded me of the old times and the feeling figuring out on yourself is very rewarding. Half-way through the game you get jumping boots and thats where the game got frustrating for me. The controls are very spongy and the jumps require pixel-perfect jumps, sometimes under pressure: jumping on one-tile-platforms with rolling bars of death? So much fun, especially when you realize that you get knocked back every time you get hit.
The story is very confusing and the writing keeps it that way. I'm not sure if I get it at all or it was deliberate that way, since it all happens in a dream and dreams don't always make sense. Still it reminds me somewhat of the story of Links Awakening, the bosses seem to warn you that be beating them, you will eventually destroy the whole world - at least thats what I got from it.
If you like the old, 2d-Zelda games, Anodyne is very well done spin on it. Especially the dungeons are very well designed, but the jumping puzzles can get frustating.

The ending is disappointing, but the journey there is very fun. I wish I could discern it's theme (if it even has one). This is like classic legend of Zelda, but in a very esoteric, dream like work. It's fun if you like Legend of Zelda or Metroidvania games.

This is one of my favorite games right now. It is difficult when it needs to be, requiring skill and intution to complete areas. I find myself cursing more than once as my last bit of life is exhausted, but keep playing again and again to learn the patterns and skill to make it through. It's not too hard, but just right. Plenty of save points to make sure you feel like you are making progress even if you keep dying. The story is interesting but ambiguous at first, but as I go along it keeps expanding and surprising me. The world is rich and fun to explore. Plenty of good humorous nostalgic dialogue between memorable and interesting characters/creatures. I highly recommend this game if you are looking for a good nostalgic Nintendo era style game.

Anodyne feels like an homage to The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, but everything is just very... strange. Just like the classic Zelda game, it's played from a top-down perspective and many of the enemies are even based on similar enemies from the Zelda series. Some of the dialog is even a direct reference to Link's Awakening.

Young, the character you play as, wields a trusty broom instead of a sword. Sometimes the broom must be used to push around piles of dust in order to solve simple puzzles. These puzzles never feel to be the main focus, though, and there's an unexpected amount of jumping obstacles in many of the dungeons. You discover a few add-ons for your broom throughout the game, but that's the limit of the items you can use.

You travel through varied environments and have many odd encounters. Throughout the game, the mood shifts between being slightly "off" to very wrong. It's hard to explain, but here's an example: in one dungeon, there are inexplicably a bunch of identical-looking men that just wander the screen. You can't speak to them or attack them, but they stop your movement and you can push them out of the way. Whenever these men are on screen, there is a creepy sound effect. At another point in the game, you walk down a dock to a fisherman. When you press the button to try to talk to him, Young instead pushes him into the lake and he drowns in a bloody whirlpool. Even later, you must kill a bunch of townspeople so a guy will let you into his house. It's some very odd stuff, and much of it is accompanied by a somewhat creepy atmospheric soundtrack without much of a melody.

As a big fan of classic 2D Zelda games, I was excited to try out Anodyne. It's definitely a unique experience. Gameplay-wise, it never feels as well-polished as your typical Zelda game, but I did enjoy my time with it for the most part. There were a few times when I got lost and had to consult some maps online, though. At the very end of the game, I found that I had to get 36 of the hidden "cards" to progress. Fortunately I had gotten most of them while playing through, but it could have been particularly frustrating if I hadn't been collecting them throughout my game.
