    Effie
    A cute adventure
    Effie is a 5 hour long 3d Platformer where you play as Galand, a man whos youth was stolen from him by a witch You set out to defeat her and reverse her spell… The story is kinda cheesy, but this is the charm of the game.. its cute, it warms your heart as a dad tells his daughter the story of this hero.. He narrates as you play and it just such a sweet idea Its

    He narrates as you play and it just such a sweet idea
    Its not capitalized as well as it could be, but I still appreciate it…
    Everything surrounding the story and set up is pretty eh
    its fun to play, just not really anything special…
    Theres a woods hub area that you can hover around on your shield and explore, go to optional areas for some trophies, but the main goal is for you to get a shard in all 3 of the main areas…
    to do so youll have to battle and 3d platform you way to a bunch of keys…
    The 3d platforming, level design, fighting.. all of it is very mediocre, but still enjoyable…
    In battle youll unlock new moves as the story progresses but its basically light attack, heavy attack, blocking and special attacks…
    Defeating enemies and collecting the rune stones round this map ewards you with xp that levels you up to increase your special attack bar as well as health…
    the level design its self, again fairly standard.. you can double jump, grab ledges and long jump..
    Again nothing special but still enjoyable…
    This is just overall a nostalgia trip, everything is fairly linear so you don’t get lost, but at the same time you feel so free to explore, reminding me a bit of Jak II
    IF you wished JAk II was much smaller, less polished, and way easier this is it…
    definitely worth playing for 3d platforming fans, but not something you need to absolutely play
    I give Effie
    a 6/10

    Me gusta, me recuerda a mis queridos juegos de N64. Bien hecho, pero le falta un poco mas de recolección de objetos, y un mapa. Para cuando la edición física

    If you are a platformer fan, definitely Effie is your game. It's not a big game (AAA), just an indie development that has taken advantage of the fact that there are currently no games of this genre. It took me 7 hours to complete the story, but these kind of games usually have this duration. Platforming is fun, the combat pretty simple and the puzzles are made for players of all ages.If you are a platformer fan, definitely Effie is your game.

Surfing along the red plains is very comfortable and the story is the hook to keep the player focused on this fantasy world. Expand

    Effie è un gioco puzzle/platform indipendente. La storia è molto semplice come anche la grafica, semplice ma curata. Il gameplay si arricchisce man mano che si progredisce nel gioco. Dura più o meno 4 ore ma la vera pecca del gioco è l'originalità, non ha niente di nuovo, ne nella trama, ne nel gameplay. Comunque gli amanti del genere apprezzeranno sicuramente perchè è un gioco ben fattoEffie è un gioco puzzle/platform indipendente.

    The vision of reconciling nuances of more recent 3D action-adventure titles with well-loved elements from adored classics is undeniably a heartwarming one. There’s great enjoyment to be had in playing through this nostalgic nod to the past, but the lacking presence of a challenge truly robs Effie of its oomph. Simplistic puzzles and brainless brawling almost completely eliminate any real sense of gratification or accomplishment. This is most certainly a game better suited for those who don’t appreciate being staggered by more intense difficulties, or a younger gamer seeking a vibrant, spellbinding world to frolic in.

    Effie is worth more for its artistic value than its ‘product’ value because, even if it feels like a true adventure with good puzzles, platforms and aesthetics, it doesn’t have the same quality in terms of gameplay and content, reducing its proposal to a bad game, but a good experience.

    If Effie’s combat and camera were a little more tightly refined and its open world a little more full of interesting content, the game would be a real winner. As it stands, Effie is fun and charming, and its flaws and frustrations don’t entirely ruin the experience. There is no shortage of 3D puzzle platform games in the world, but Effie stands out as a colorful and vibrantly realized translation of a fairly tale come to life.
