This game borrows a lot of mechanics from Zelda (pots, melee combat and art style). The screen tearing is an issue that I can't seem to resolve with this game. I messed around with all the settings, even enabling a 60 FPS lock & V-Sync and it still wasn't completely gone. However, beyond this small graphical issue, everything else works as it should. It's definitely worth picking during a sale.

I rate it 8/10. If you liked any of the previous Zelda titles, you will feel right at home with this game.

Specially recommended for the Zelda saga fans. It is a great tribute in the form of Indie Game.

Do not expect a masterpiece as the games from Nintendo, but it is worthy enough to play it.

For me these are the pros:

1. Atmosphere.
Indeed, it is not a legendary story which chains you down from dusk till dawn. But it has a certain calmness, a bit like being the main protagonist of those old tales which are were read to children from big old books.

2. Simplicity and still fun.
There is nothing complicated things in this game (maybe some puzzles?), but not a lot of skill points, inventory management, item augmentations, alchemy etc. In spite of this still offers a decent relaxation.

3. Graphics.
I don't want to say that it has some uber hardcore graphics, but it has it's own "bright" style, which is kind of a refreshing after playing 200 hours of survival horror.

Cons:
I really can't say anything really bad about this game. But if you are the person who needs some legendary stuff, and to feel feel like a mighty warrior or fearful mage, please avoid this game. :)

As a summary: I really recommend this game to those who can enjoy a game without the urge to compare to other BIG titles in the industry.

This game is not bad, but neither is it great. I like it, that’s it.
I searched for a Zelda-like game, and that is exactly what I got. The similarities are, to me, pretty ridiculous and funny. The developers haven’t even tried hiding what they were trying to create.

I like the storyteller mode, adventure, the openworld and the puzzles that aren’t hard enough. But it gets pretty repetitive, yet rather addicting. I don’t feel like I’ve wasted my money, since I bought it on sale for about 4$. It’s cheap entertainment. If you like the idea of Zelda, but think the games are too hard, this is the game for you.

As the Zelda-fanatic I am, I can’t shake the feeling of this being a total windwaker rip-off, and it pains me a bit. Even if the game has some of its own features. I give it 6,5/10 and I recommend this game.

Oceanhorn: Moster of Uncharted Seas is reminiscent of the Legend of Zelda series. A silent hero sets out on a epic quest to find his father and defeat the monster known as Oceanhorn. This quest will take the player across various islands. The boss fights are fun. The art style and story of the game are praiseworthy.

Whilst the game borrows aspects from the Legend of Zelda series, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas adds their own mechanics and twists to the game.For example, the game incorporates a leveling mechanic. Players can level up the hero by completing the story, compeleting challenges. and killing monsters. The game also includes a fishing mechanic with leaderboard stats.

Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is a brilliant game that is highly recommended for action adventure fans as well as fans of the Legend of Zelda series.

Was surpised to find out this was an ISO port, it did not feel like one. The controls are good for both Mouse/keyboard and XBOX 360 controller.

Very much like Zelda: Phantom hour glass for the Nintendo DS, with a smaller budget.

Main story took 9 hours, but I only had 59% completion so expect more if your a completionist.

My only complaint is you can't break vases with your sword! Your inspired this much by Zelda and you leave out the most satisfying aspect. At least you can pick them up and smash them, lol.

Recommended on sale if you like Zelda games.

An RPG/Adventure game clearly inspired by the Zelda series.

It's got a nice storyline to it which will have you traveling between plenty of islands although each area feels somewhat short.
The majority of the game is fairly simple and straight forwards, puzzles that aren't that difficult or puzzling also they're not that varied as most of them involve pushing boxes, pressing buttons and using bombs or arrows.

There's a nice levelling system which unlocks extra features or improvements, killing monsters and completing challenges gives you xp.

The graphics are okay but there's a few questionable glitches such as solid objects shaking around when you hit then and floating objects. Otherwise it's a pretty solid game.
I never encounter any bugs or something which stopped me progressing and was able to get 100% achievements and exploration in game without any trouble.

There's no reply value unless you wish to get all achievements and missed some your first time round, the game is short but the challenges can add extra time if you wish to go for them but their only reward is the XP which will help level up much faster which will help you out.
There's a fishing system, there's no benefits for using it but it's got a leader board for the biggest fish if you wish to compete with other players however it's repetitive and tedious.

Overall the game is enjoyable and worth getting if you like Zelda or similar games but you may wish to wait for a sale due to its length and simplicity.

A solid homage to the zelda series games, you can tell the devs have some love for them. that being said the gameplay is clunky at times but still has a unique charm to it if you can look past some minor issues in combat you will find just a nice adventure and some brutal bosses. I would give the story 7/10 would buy on sale and play.

This is a good, simple, beautiful action adventure game. It's reminiscent of 64/Gamecube Zelda titles. It's shorter with a smaller world, but what's there is fulfilling. This is definitely worth picking up at this price point.

Eeeeehhhhhhhhh.

This is one of those games where I really wish that was an option for whether or not I'd recommend this game. I'm posting this as a "yes", just because it's a harmless enough RPG that's a decent way to pass the time. Can't say I regret my purchase, but there are better things to buy.

Though this game does commit one of those "oh god why do games do this" sins: The entire world is on a diagonal axis, yet the keyboard controls are on a normal axis. For that alone I'd recommend a controller just because it's not worth the extra effort.

I feel like I would absolutely love this game if it had a little more polish. It's got some really good Zelda-esque aspects in here with the music being beautiful and all the people charming. But then it leaves out some really crucial Zelda-esque things (and I mean if you're going to go for it, go all the way).

The good:
+ Artstyle
+ Music
+ Story
+ Inventory/Item switching

The Bad:
- Movement controls are a bit sloppy
- Boss battles are boring
- There are unfixed glitches in the game that can really mess up your progress (for example, there was a boss that I could routinely get down to zero health and who wouldn't die. He would just fly around the boss room until I got impatient and let him kill me).
- The game is often vague on what to do and not in a "here is a puzzle to solve" way, but in a "you can find one of the most useful rings in dark souls by climbing out a hidden tower and these ruins that don't look climbable, so you can go back to this area you didn't think you could get back to with no real markers or hints beyond a crow watching you" way.
- It has the FF8 syndrome where you can get locked into a village with no way to level, get more hearts, get better weapons, etc. And you can't get off that island until you beat a boss. That glitchy boss I mentioned before. It sucked.

There is just barely enough for me to recommend this game and a lot of the good will it had built up was destroyed by the that stupid boss glitch. If you're looking for a Zelda-esque adventure on PC that reminds you of Windwaker without all the sailing, but with more boring enemies? This is your game.

Feeling warm, cosy and a bit nostalgic in the first minutes, the game soon becomes dull, repetitive and irritating.
Not good enough to spend time on finishing.
