    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.

    Oceanhorn‘s gameplay isn’t as polished as the SNES title it attempts to emulate, and the level design never evokes the brilliant dungeons that the developer was inspired by. Every aspect of the game feels like a poor imitation even down to the Wind Waker art style that falls apart when seen up-close.

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! Full Review »

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.
