    Abyss Odyssey is a thematically deep game. On the surface it's a simple action platformer crossed with roguelike, but under that surface is a true rarity; a game made by South Americans that rejoices in South American mythology.

    Captivating beat'em'up infused with RPG elements and a healthy dose of Chilean mythology. It could use some fine tuning in regards of its control scheme but the game itself is worth revisiting. [Issue#245]

    Abyss Odyssey is an evocative gem that begs for more polish and attention; one that is rough around the edges but will hypnotize you with enchantment and mystery.

    Abyss Odyssey manages to be an interesting game that will reward those who spend time with it to really get to know it.

    A 2-hour repeat-fest isn't an odyssey. Still, an interesting hybrid of genres that succeeds more than it fails. [October 2014, p77]

    Between those shooting star moments, too much of Odyssey weakens under the pile. It’s many things at once with new ideas; this is the both the kindest and most damning thing to be said about it.

    Some great ideas and fantastic graphics, but as fun as it is to see so many genres mixed together Abyss Odyssey doesn’t do any of them any real justice.

    An astounding and strange mash-up of rogue like elements, beat-em-up gameplay, and capture mechanics like those in Pokémon. Won't take long toAn astounding and strange mash-up of rogue like elements, beat-em-up gameplay, and capture mechanics like those in Pokémon. Won't take long to beat, but it will take long to master all the characters as every monster in this game is playable once captured and can be used as an extra life/character you can voluntarily switch to and from. Great with someone who is willing to play something a little different. Expand

    Stiff Garbage
    Abyss Oddssey is an action platforming game where the goal is to get to the bottom which each of the games 3 characters
    This isn’t a true platformer aside from the hazards here…
    For the mose part youre just going down and killing ever enemy in your way the best you can with the clunky and stuff combat..
    you feel like the tin man from the wizard of oz trying to slice these fools…
    along your way youll find new weapons , a lot of them character specific which Is a bit frustrating, some cash to buy weapons from the shop.. and your constantly cashing in for better gear to make it further and further…
    IF you do die you drop your weapons and are replaced with a soldier..
    As this soldier its your job to find a checkpoint alter to revive your fallen hero…
    And dying because combat is so stiff is extremely easy…
    And health drops from enemies hardly do you any good…
    You do sort of get a 2nd life in the form of capturing random enemies which is rare..
    but some enemies will drop a pick up for you to change into them..
    And you can be this enemy until they die..
    But if your pick up dies, you die, and your soldier replacement dies…
    its back to the start.. hjaving to drop down to the bottom all over again..
    Qhich is frustrating because there are tons of quick mini bosses on your way to the bottom, and at the bottom of this abyss is an over powered spongy and spammy boss that youre gonna need a little lady luck to get past or some help from another player as this game does support online coop..
    That is if the game doesn’t corrupt when you try and join a game like it did for me..
    Abyss Odyssey just doesn’t feel right..
    The game is boring , stiff,repetitive, broken,
    Theres no reason for anyone to play this..
    I give Abyss Odyssey
    a 3/10
