    There’s no way of skirting the issue – this game is a Zelda clone, through-and-through. From the bombs and arrows to the comically oversized chests you find them in, Oceanhorn is a mere re-skin mod away from being the Zelda release for PC we all so desperately long for. In fact, this may well be the closest we will ever get.

    Oceanhorn: Master of Uncharted Seas is a pretty enjoyable action adventure experience. Yes, it's a Zelda clone, but it pulls it off very well and, while some aspects, like the sea fairing mechanic, weigh it down, it's still quite a treat to play.

    Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is a pleasantly surprising homage to a classic adventure series.

    Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is a Zelda clone game ported from iOS. Despite its poor graphics, it achieves to impart the feeling of exploration to the player. Even though it's not as good as Zelda, it still remains a very interesting project for the fans of action adventure games.

    Oceanhorn is a good game, a solid experience that works quite well on PC after being originally developed for mobile devices.

    Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is a decent clone of The Legend of Zelda for the ones who never had the chance to play it, though the difference is pretty evident.

    In its transition from mobile to home systems the game has lost some of its appeal, too big for handhelds, too small for big screen TVs.

This is my fix before the new Zelda arrives. Boat traveling of course is very much like WW. The art style is, however, actually quite different. WW is quite Disney-like, whereas Oceanhorn is colorful, but not so cartoonish. Expand

    Oceanhorn – Monster of Uncharted Seas
    A Great Adventure
    Ocean Horn is a Legend of Zelda Styled Adventure Game where you play as a boy who finds his father has left to slay the oceanhorn..
    You then set out on an adventure to help him...
    The gameplay and level design is quite simple…
    You have a sword, shield and magic…
    Before you can defeat the oceanhorn you must find the emblems of the Earth Ocean and sun
    and to get to these locations you need information…
    You run around each island looking for new information to send you to the next… this is a bit of a goose chase… and such an enjoyable goose chase
    As you run around there will be enemies trying to stop you, treasure to collect, bloodstone to find… new equipment and magic to help you in other locations…
    Spots you can’t get to yet…
    There is such a great feeling of discovery here…
    It’s so fun to explore and figure out how to get to different areas…
    Leave an island to search for a different item to reach an area you can’t quite get to…
    This treasure collecting and environmental puzzle solving is the majority of the game…
    Its 12 hours of the same thing from start to finish, but the pacing here is so well balanced that it never gets tiring.. there’s a perfect balance between adventure, combat, and problem solving…
    When it is finally time to go after one of the 3 emblems, there is a boss there guarding it…
    And this unfortunately is when the bad of the game starts to show…
    Don’t get me wrong... I loved the bosses in this game…
    They are challenging in their own way…
    But the mechanics of the actual game hinders this otherwise great experience…
    For starters... the camera is atrocious, especially during the ocean emblem boss battle…
    The camera will lock onto the boss, cause the camera to go underneath your character, in front of your character, to the side…. Instead of sticking with you…
    I’d much rather let the boss run around and do his thing while I set up to take him out…
    It adds an unnecessary layer of frustration to an already tough to deal with situation…
    Another annoyance I have here is that when you do die... which you will, a lot…
    Your inventory of bombs, arrows, mana, and health does restore…
    The health is the biggest slap in the face as no matter how many heart containers you’ve found, if you die you respawn with only 3 health… witch btw only takes one hit from a bomb in the 2nd to last boss battle to kill you… Sure there are tricks like going out of the room to break containers for drops, but it’s an annoying hassle to have to go out and manually restock your items and health…
    It’s like you did so great the first time when you died going in with full health magic, and 10 bombs, try again with 33% of your health no magic and no bombs
    And to make it worse, despite the game remembering the progress of your item usage.. It completely forgets the damage you did to the boss…
    He gets to start full health…
    Garbage rules and camera aside
    Each and every boss fight is enjoyable and insanely satisfying when you take that punk down…
    Ocean Horn is a great game…
    So much adventure, so much content…
    I couldn’t put it down…
    I give Oceanhorn Monster of Uncharted Seas
    an 8/10

    Ocean horn is a really nice and beautiful game looking and playing a little bit like zelda series mixed with little big adventure.Ocean horn is a really nice and beautiful game looking and playing a little bit like zelda series mixed with little big adventure.

    Everything is put in an isometric perspective with lovely candy graphics. The world is divided into island to which you travel by sailing your boat. Our main hero has no name but looks very similar to Link - although without the cap - but with the sword and the shield the inspiration is unmistakable. Your goal is to kill the monster called Oceanhorn - to do so you will need to travel the world, discover new locations, solve puzzles and gain necessary abilities.

    This game gives a very laid back feeling. The gameplay is very good as well. Fighting, travelling the world, solving puzzles, even fishing are all well done. I really enjoyed my time playing the game and can easily recommend it to any Zelda fan out there.

    I'll make this short. This was a pretty damn good iPad game, probably an 8 or better. This is not a great PC game nor a great port. Play thisI'll make this short.

    It is an homage to Zelda, but is empty in a lot of sense and is just not on that level.
