  • Summary: Ever miss being a child, playing games at your grandma's or in your old bedroom? Then look no further! The Adventures of Elena Temple is the classic you never knew existed. And the best part is that you can play it on virtual old machines that kind of sort of maybe existed. It's not like youEver miss being a child, playing games at your grandma's or in your old bedroom? Then look no further! The Adventures of Elena Temple is the classic you never knew existed. And the best part is that you can play it on virtual old machines that kind of sort of maybe existed. It's not like you can remember for sure anyway, right? The game is a monochromatic puzzle platformer made to look as if it were created in the 80s. Overcome obstacles, figure out how to collect all the coins, find all the gems and remember your childhood while doing it! Progress through the game's dungeon through non-linear exploration and keep an open eye for secrets to find. Expand

    The Adventures of Elena Temple is a quick little puzzle platformer assembled within a single dungeon to explore. However, at just over an hour to 100% complete it, you'll be done with it quickly unless you create challenges for yourself or care about improving stats.

    The Adventures of Elena Temple is a great platformer in a super-cool package of retro novelty. If what you’re looking for is a quick fix of good gameplay with some old-school flair, this is a perfect choice. However, if you are looking for extensive exploration or near-impossible platforming, this experience may be underwhelming to you.

    The Adventures of Elena Temple does a solid job recreating a certain era of platform gaming, despite minor problems linked to level design. What’s unfortunate is how more time, effort and focus seems to have gone into the fictional history of the game and the machines it can be played on for the sake of nostalgia, rather than the gameplay. It’s nice there is reasoning behind the visual filters, but this and the silly story comes across as overbearing when the actual gameplay perfectly captures the feeling of nostalgia.

    Those looking for a retro throwback will find a lot to enjoy in The Adventures of Elena Temple. With its tight gameplay and clever puzzles, it’s probably a much more enjoyable experience than revisiting the games it’s based on. Unfortunately, the option to play the game on multiple systems ends up being little more than a gimmick, and the experience is over a bit too quickly. It’s a fun game while it lasts, but the inclusion of online leaderboards or the ability to conveniently toggle between system modes would have made the experience less likely to be forgotten.

To me, this was a good game, as a game? Probably not, which in a way makes me like it a lot more. Expand

    Juego muy sencillo pero muy agradable. Jugabilidad clásica basada en mazmorras independientes pero interconectadas. Pocas reglas y ningunaJuego muy sencillo pero muy agradable. Jugabilidad clásica basada en mazmorras independientes pero interconectadas. Pocas reglas y ninguna evolución, pero un placer recorrer todas las pantallas hasta completar el juego. Las opciones gráficas son divertidas, aunque se echa en falta que se puedan poner a pantalla completa; algunas "skins" son interesantes pero se muestran en un marco excesivo que hace que la imagen quede demasiado pequeña para se cómodo jugar.

    Básicamente se trata de hacer saltos precisos, gestionar dos únicos disparos antes de recargar y recorrer las mazmorras para encontrar los secretos y tesoros. Se muere muchas veces pero la muerte no penaliza ni frustra. Hay veces eso es precisamente lo que uno quiere.
