    Most gamers can appreciate a throwback to the days of old 8 and 16-bit side-scrollers and Toy Odyssey is well worth it, especially for those looking for something unique in a world where FPS, sports and shooting games are the norm.

    Toy Odyssey: The Lost and Found is a great game if you can look past the flaws. If I were to bring up a complaint apart from the basic story, it would be that the combat feels a little clunky in the beginning when you don’t have many abilities and advanced weaponry. Despite that, it’s still an expansive roguelike experience that people who like the genre must play. You’ll love it if you adore games like Bard’s Gold and Rogue Legacy.

    Whilst Toy Odyssey eventually may feel a little repetitive… the layouts, enemies and tasks at hand change enough that replayability does genuinely feel unlimited.

    An inconspicuous game that manages to entertain with its procedural platforming but fails on delivering a successful combat.

    I tried my best to like Toy Odyssey more than I did as there’s much to love about it. The idea and the execution are mostly fine but unfortunately some game design decisions made playing the game more laborious than entertaining. Toy Odyssey deserves to be more fun and exciting. Dull routines should be for parents, not for brave toy soldiers!

    I found Toy Odyssey to be, all in all, an enjoyable little romp evne if it wasn't something I probably would have picked up and played on my own. It still managed to be fun and exciting, with an impressive attention to detail and plenty of reasons to keep coming back, as long as you space out your visits to the toy room by a few days proper.

    Works because the game tickles our minds based on a time when our imaginations were their most fertile: childhood. I know my toys often waged large-scale war with one another all over the living room and this game captures that in its level and character design as well as the central narrative revolving around a young boy and his nightmares.

    Toy Odyssey does a lot of things right for an indie game and a few things wrong. The art style and general premise are what drew me to theToy Odyssey does a lot of things right for an indie game and a few things wrong. The art style and general premise are what drew me to the game. I like a challenge, so the fact that the game is a bit punishing until you start leveling up your equipment suits me fine. There is a bit of a grinding element, but the dev team seems committed to improving the game with regular patches. So, the first patch made a HUGE difference in construction time to defend your base.

    Pros:
    +Challenging gameplay
    +Lots of replayability
    +Atmospheric soundtrack & VO
    +Unique art style and story

    Cons:
    ​-Sometimes too challenging
    -Occasional fetch quests
    -Base mechanics don't add to the fun
