The perfect game for when you want to play a Legend of Zelda game, but don't want to play a Legend of Zelda game.

It's hard not to compare this game to Zelda windwaker. The art style and gameplay are very similar to the Gamecube classic. You get a sword / shield, smash pots for money, travel by boat to explore small islands surrounded by a huge ocean, and so on...

I felt this game was too easy and too short, but I did enjoy every hour of the game. Great soundtrack!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Action-Adventure RPGs are a dime-a-dozen these days, Is Oceanhorn a worthy addition to said genre ? The short answer would be "Yes and No"
Let's get into it.

This is not the original launch of the game, first being released on iPad where it got good reviews. So first things first, how well was it ported to PC ?
Please keep in mind that my time with the game was through a pre-release version, that being said :

-Frames locked at 60 max (Vsync on or off).
-Vsync off will result in screen tearing.
-Operates fine with mouse and Keyboard as-well with a controller.
-Most of the keys are rebindable but not all. You can rebind the movement and action keys which are most important, but you can not rebind generic commands such as "Pause" , "Menu", Numeric for items (1,2,3,4) and you can not assign keyboard commands for mouse actions (attack, use item and turn camera). Overall i found this to be acceptable but not ideal.
-No bugs, glitches, crashes or any issues from my time with the game
-Decent graphics options for quality / resolution etc.

The developer claims that this was a huge overhaul and from my time with the game i found this to be true. So overall it's ok technically speaking. My only issue is with the frame lock and tearing, hopefully the dev will have this sorted soon. OR RIOT!!! :D

Now that we are done with that on to the game!

The overall feel of Oceanhorn resembles the Zelda series, featuring a mute hero, a handful of magical artifacts that you will collect across very different environments in order to save the world!...what else ?... oh and find out what happened to your father!

The journey will take you from verdant landscapes to sun-scorched deserts to treacherous dungeons, all of these environments are beautifully crafted and never outstay their welcome.
The "I am on a adventure!" feeling is present throughout the game. A big part of that feeling is caused by the epic soundtrack which blends perfectly with your surroundings, never breaking the feeling and always adapting itself to the situation at hand.

The gameplay is rather stiff for a Action RPG and while it may be fine for ipad it's definitely sub-par for a PC title. This is a issue because from my point of view the actual combat-gameplay is the bread and butter for a game of this type. You start with a STICK for a weapon (yes a actual stick!) but you soon find your fathers sword and shield! You can block with said shield using shift and you can move around while holding block, but when you attack with your sword you are rooted in place, making for a bit of a frustrating experience when a enemy moves 5 pixels out of range you need to stop attacking, move and start attacking again.

While you traverse Oceanhors worlds you will level up and unlock new items and abilities which will allow you to solve previously impassable puzzles. So if you are a completionist there is plenty of backtracking for you in Oceanhorn.
Speaking of puzzles...these are for the most part no-brainers, with the occasional brain teaser, i did not mind this to much as i never enjoyed being stuck on a puzzle but if you want something more complex you will have a hard time finding it here.

What about the difficulty ?
Well there is no hand-holding and the game rarely points you in the right direction.
For example, if you chose not to talk to all of the towns folk or read all the messages scattered across the land you will not get access to all the locations you can explore. A location will only unlock for you if someone tells you about it or you read about it somewhere.
The actual combat is not that challenging and you will have no problems dispatching creatures or learning a bosses patterns so you can counter it.

Let's wrap this up...
If you are looking for a leisurely-paced enchanting adventure and you are not to fussy about combat then look no further.
Sure... it is not perfect and it may not be the embodiment of modern day ARPGs but it more then makes up for it in feel and style.
Overall a good game at a very attractive price which i am happy to recommend!
For a clearer view on the actual game you can watch my first impressions video :

PC version of Zelda. Puzzles, secrets, sword and shield. If you were ever sad that they never put Zelda on the computer, this can be a very good substitute

9/10
