    Oceanhorn is a high-quality clone of Zelda with a lot of charm and definitely worth a sailing trip.

    A little and cute Zelda-like adventure games that moves from its iOS origins to PC and home consoles without losing its charm. A fun game for old and young players that will entertain and awe you with a nice story and a cute graphic.

    Oceanhorn is unashamedly a Legend of Zelda clone, but feels more like an homage than a copycat. There are few original ideas, but old-school adventure game fans should love Oceanhorn’s bite-sized interpretation of Zelda’s classic formula.

    A short, sweet tale, which you’ll enjoy mostly for its delightful visuals and enchanting soundtrack. The overt homages to The Legend of Zelda can sometimes feel more like blatant imitation than respectful tribute, and we wish there was a little more punchiness to the combat, but developers Cornfox Bros demonstrate competent game design here, and Oceanhorn subsequently represents one of the better mobile to console ports out there right now.

    It's still a fundamentally unimaginative example of the genre it's aping, and completely fades out of memory the second you remember there are other fish in the sea.

    There’s nothing wrong with taking influences from classic franchises, but the very least one could do is make it transformative enough to warrant its own game. Oceanhorn: Monsters of Uncharted Seas is both mechanically too similar and at the same time somehow inferior to the The Legend of Zelda franchise. It has a lovely score, but there are far more original interpretations of the genre out there.

It looked just like the type of game I enjoyed so much during childhood. But since I don't own an iOS device I never was able to play it - until now.
    Certainly, it's not a perfect game (There's always room for improvement, isn't it?), but I definitely got what I expected: a lovely crafted, fun game that brings back the good times of my childhood I spent with Link, Ark from Terranigma, Maxim from Lufia and many more.

I love the colorful graphics and beautiful music. Enemies are a bit easy, but I think it suits well for this type of adventure which is more about exploration anyway. Boss battles are well designed and fun. Recommended buy! Expand

To me, that is enough to give 9/10 for this game. This is like the games used to be. My favourite parts where Island of Whispers (you have to talk to the man at the pier to get there) - that was a nice "hidden" side quest. Maybe there could be few more island in an update? Expand

I didnt find any bugs and game didnt crash. music was great and gameplay solid. controls were fine, maybe a bit too simple. Story wasnt very impressive, and lots of things were copied from Zelda windwaker. But i can recommend this to my friends. Totally worth of its price Expand

    A great game for those that love the Zelda style adventure games. A cross between traditional old school Zelda mixed with Wind Waker.A great game for those that love the Zelda style adventure games. A cross between traditional old school Zelda mixed with Wind Waker. Gameplay is smooth, exploring is fun and some good puzzles. Music is good and the game is just long enough to warrant the price tag. Most locations look the same with different textures but are just different enough to set the atmosphere for each zone they are aiming for.
    For you trophy hunters out there, this is an easy Platinum. (So easy you can Platinum without beating the game)
