The first thing this game is going to draw comparisons to is the legend of zelda. The over head sword slashing action rpg that legend of zelda represents is quite obvious. However, the game’s puzzles are reminiscent of the zelda games of old with its “find the correct way to use the right ability” motif.
The actual abilities draws comparisons to any game that involves the use of spirits for abilities. They know who they are. However, despite the use of spirits, I stand by the zelda comparison, as the spirits tend to be more practical in terms of puzzles then in combat.
The character’s design reminds me most of boktai, and the storyline is similar to every story with a magic tree.(again, they know who they are.)
Put it all together, and you’ll get one of the best gaming experiences you’ll ever get with an indy game. It maintains a lot of what made the old zelda’s fun, but still manages to set itself apart from all the things I just compared it to. If you enjoy Legend of zelda/mana series/tales of series/boktai/etc. you’ll probably enjoy this game, and the overall quality of the game is simply amazing.
If you haven’t pressed the download button by the time you finish reading this sentence, I will have found out and will be tracking you down.
