    I can’t say The Swords of Ditto is a flawless experience. But I can say that the combat, progression, aesthetic, and couch co-op combine to create something wholly unique and engaging.

    Its issues of repetitive combat and odd looting problems do hold it back from being truly amazing but Sword of Ditto is a solid offering that pulls on the nostalgic heartstrings of my youth with its legend of Zelda inspirations and superb handling of the roguelike mechanics.

    If you like this style of dungeon exploration, then this is a fantastically made one you can play co-op that's essentially endless, and what's not to love about that? [June 2018, p.85]

    The Swords of Ditto’s repetitive nature grinds after a few playthroughs, but it’s a journey worth taking at least a few times.

    Swords of Ditto is a unique take on a tried and true formula. What it brings is interesting, even if it is a bit flawed. I really had a good time after coming to grips with its systems. I definitely recommend it to those who enjoy the Zelda loop. This game’s colorful world and charming aesthetic makeup for its shortcomings.

    The Swords of Ditto is an enjoyable RPG held back by its procedural world that hinders the potential creativity of dungeons and exploration.

    The Swords of Ditto combines some great visuals and decent gameplay with overly long and slightly tedious dungeon exploration. The lack of anything truly rewarding carrying over makes those long sessions difficult to stomach.

Just like our lives, Ditto is beautiful, frustrating, captivating and wonderful. Highly recommended. Expand

If you're on the fence, I highly recommend it. The game controls very well and the "toys" you unlock are super fun to use. However, be aware that this game is considered a "roguelike" meaning it has permadeath mechanics. I was pretty frustrated at first when starting out because of this, but once you start to understand how the game works, you'll love it. Expand

    Overall I enjoyed Swords of Ditto it is a charming game with a really cool art style like the art style of Adventure time. The game itselfOverall I enjoyed Swords of Ditto it is a charming game with a really cool art style like the art style of Adventure time. The game itself unlike most other rouge likes that have played the gameplay never really gets repetitive and does a good job of making the dungeons feel fresh each time that I do them. The toys are mostly all pretty fun to use and mess around with; I also really liked the sticker mechanic it added a good bit of depth to the game. The combat in this game is good too it is fresh and controls really well. If were thinking about getting this a think you should it is a really fun game. Expand

A Zelda clone that isn't bad with a beautiful art style and a similar 'end of the world' countdown Majora's Mask had attained. The game can be a little bit repetitive and doesn't really attain anything new or something that will make it stand out. A unique twist in the game, a nice story and a world of beautiful art styles that can make anyone go 'awwww'. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is a Zelda clone. Visually perfect in cell shaded style. The world isn't that big, so they make a rule that when you die you have to restart from the start, with a character of your choosing (you find more in the game) and you keep your level. The rule become really annoying after the third time you die. Eventually you can buy an extra life. This mechanic isn't really that fun. I put the game to easy to finish it, but the real ending demands that you kill the bad guy 5 times without dying. The game doesn't cost that much. You will get a good 5-6 hours at easy. I give it a 68%. Did impress me at first, then not so much. Expand

    Great Art, Music and style. Terrible terrible game loop. This game shows how great artists and game makers can do when making a bad conceptGreat Art, Music and style. Terrible terrible game loop. This game shows how great artists and game makers can do when making a bad concept mechically, the game designer or designers should have played tested this game loop before releasing.

    I was so excited to play this when it first came out, but then fell off it straight away. It turns fun progress into tedious grinding with little feedback, incentive, story law, discovery that makes you feel like you want to continue any time you die.

    DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME
