    Whether you look at dialogue and story line, or implementation of mechanics, or just sheer volume of gameplay, Evoland 2 is not just a huge improvement on the original but also an amazing way to extend your experiences you may have had with those old school games that it emulates. Evoland 2 pulls off something very difficult to do, it keeps it's own unique feel and functions as a greatest hits anthology. Go get it if you haven't already!

    As a fan of RPGs in general, I am liking Evoland 2 so far. I believe I had the original game, but didn't get around to playing it for whatever reason (this happens more often than not). The cheeky humor and references bring a smile to my face, and I love how the world transitions to different graphical styles. The soundtrack reminds me of older RPGs that I used to play too, so the nostalgia is nice. I just hope the controls get better in due time. It may just take some practice to get used to.

    Evoland 2 struggles to find a proper identity in its incredible mix of genre and styles, but manage to be enjoyable, especially for those who actually lived the 8 and 16-bit eras.

    Its biggest problem is touchscreen controls, the joystick and buttons regularly proving elusive and making precision platform stages just as nightmarish as you’d expect. But get past those moments of finger-slipping, iPad-hurling frustration and you’ll discover an unusually well-made and inventive tour of gameplay from the last three decades.

    Unlike its predecessor, Evoland 2 tends not to get so swept up in how clever it's being. And that makes it a far warmer and more welcoming experience. It's still poking fun, but it's doing it because it cares, not because it's mean. Sure, it's a little on the scatterbrained side, and there are RPGs on the App Store that do all of the things that it tries out better. But as an experience in pleasant nostalgia, there's enough care and attention been lavished on this one to make it worth your while.

    There are moments where Evoland 2’s game-referencing antics feel really cool, but these moments are few and far between. Otherwise, it presents a poorly paced adventure that—though narratively interesting—isn’t exactly fun to play. For the most part, Evoland 2 is a passing curiosity that mostly just reminds you of all the other, better games you could be playing instead of it.

    Below is a copy n pasted text review I posted for the first Evoland game a while ago. The review for the first Evoland is essentiallyBelow is a copy n pasted text review I posted for the first Evoland game a while ago. The review for the first Evoland is essentially identical n fits perfectly to explain the point of the game n the overall experience. Imo Evoland 2 is slightly better overall n I’m so grateful they added controller support to the sequel. Evoland review I posted that details the same things I love about this sequel...
    This game is really good. It’s basically the history of video games told through the game’s presentation...the style and mechanics of the game changes from very basic early on to represent early video games and as you progress through the game you systematically unlock chests that add a new item/mechanic/style to the game(ie. first chest opened is “left movement” and then “scrolling” then later you get “164 colours” then “mode 7” all the way up to current graphics levels.)
    The game starts looking like a gameboy game n then progresses through a Zelda look n so on. It’s a fantastic idea n it’s pulled off brilliantly. Although there’s no controller support for this game unlike Evoland 2

The story is interesting and involved time travel. A lot of old style are done here: RPG action, tactical, timing fights, shoot them up (more of less good), rhythm music (absolutely horrible in the ending). I love the way the game is presented visually. In 3 different styles for 3 period of time. I give it 75%. Sadly, the game put you in a rhythm music fight around the end and it was horribly fast and bad. It ruined the game for me. Already that I found the shoot them up, way too long. Not everyone was good at these styles of games. Eventually, you will hit a wall with one of them. Expand
