Oceanhorn Monsters of Uncharted Seas Review

A light hearted approach to classic platformer elements that really peaks the interest at the best of times. Colorful surroundings in a childlike theme that reminds you of the games gone by, yet it merits its own place in the dusty tome that entails good but not quite classic gaming experiences.

The game is well ported, it feels light, fast, as it should really. Controlling the player is mostly easy and problem free and there is not much to frown upon in this regard. It really feels much like its sturdier desktop counterpart, which is not a bad thing at all.

The combat is just as the movement, light and easy. Although this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it also isn’t always fantastic. Often the combat feels unresponsive and unintuitive. There are times when smashing a bug or throwing a pot feels good, but mostly it feels to flat.

Graphically, it has to be said; the game looks fantastic. Beautiful colors and impressive level design makes for a truly wonderful spectacle. A truly visual experience. The game knows how to balance colors, although some areas are abundantly light and floral others are mysterious and dark in appearance. The charm is maintained because of the adversity in level design and uniqueness of each area.

Where the experience falters somewhat is in the enemy design and intelligence. These are often very basic and mindless. Enemy design is often repetitive and boring with only the most basic of combat types. There are some interesting characters thrown into the mix but all in all it falls short mostly.

The game is quite simple and easy, but it was always going to be if one looks at the theme and target market of this kind of experience.  Even though this holds true , I was still able to enjoy the experience and would recommend it as a light hearted experience. The plot line is somewhat basic but does run quite deep and become quite engrossing as the progression continues. Althpought its not recommended on the plot alone , the plot definitely is a strong point here.
