There are so many positive points to be made concerning this game that I hardly even know where to begin. I'll try anyway. After about two minutes of loading and getting myself ready, I was greeted with not some cheesy title screen, instead, I was immediately immersed in the game, listening to the wonderful Stranger, narrating the story of the Kid. That brings me to my first point. The narration is top notch in this game and there really was a lot of time and care out into making sure that every bit of dialogue was solid. The narration moves along with your character and blends smoothly with the progress you make through levels. The voice following you through the story is one of the biggest selling points of the game and doesn't interfere with the experience, rather, it enhances it.
Gameplay is a big part of any game and this one has some innovative ideas. This game is a port, but it feels like it was meant for touchscreen devices. I had no problem with keeping the controls off of the "classic" setting. The virtual joystick has always felt a little clunky to me, but the controls that are set on default are excellent. Fighting the monsters is challenging but do-able with the ability to zip across the map and fend off waves of enemies or use that special ability to vaporize all your foes. The various weapons of the game all serve a purpose and any combination of weapons can be employed for all the levels. There are many different enemies to smash through as you listen to the narrator tell the tale of the land. So you're always in for a treat when a large swath of enemies ambush you while you're knocked out. I fully recommend this game to all supported devices. I played this game for 15 hours nonstop until I had beaten it all. It is completely worth the five dollars spent. I hope to see a sequel or more content from these developers. I haven't a single complaint. Way to go.… Expand
