    Tunic is a near-flawless experience that celebrates games and gaming from a bygone era in one of the boldest, most confident displays of game-design and creation I’ve ever experienced. Its nostalgia game is strong and my heart strings have been well and truly tugged, strumming a tune(ic) of thanks and adoration for an adventure truly elevated and engrossing; challenging and full of surprise and wonder.

    Tunic is a really cozy game that only gets better the longer you play. It captures much of what made games like A Link to the Past so immersive in its time, but merges it with its own design elements (and a bit of Dark Souls).

    Tunic is a fantastically clever adventure that kicks off in familiar Zelda-esque fashion before branching out to become its own thing entirely. There's an exquisitely designed world to explore here, a great big puzzle-box to probe and prod at as you progress through a story that's got just the right amount of mystery and intrigue about it to keep you hooked in. Combat can be a little clumsy at points early on but it improves as new powers are introduced and the game develops and grows into a surprisingly big, surprisingly challenging experience that's absolutely one of our favourite games of 2022 so far.

    Tunic demands all of your attention to experience its world and mysteries as intended. Fortunately, with excellent world design, fun and diverse gameplay and extraordinary ways to keep you interested in what to come next, it truly deserves that investment and focus.

    More than a very good Zelda-like, Tunic is a great puzzle-adventure game that will delight fans of exploration and secrets. Because the game of Andrew Shouldice and his friends contains a lot. Very much. Starting with those hidden off the beaten path, thanks to beautiful colorful isometric 3D. But especially those hidden in a paper manual directly integrated into the game. A brilliant idea that serves as a map, a history manual as well as a collection of clues, and which is at the heart of the progression. Tunic knows how to regularly surprise the player with things present from the beginning - a passage, a game mechanic - but which are revealed hours later. Without forgetting the demanding and solid action phases, which contain significant moments. Fights that can also be made very simple, thanks to accessibility options. What to focus above all on the secrets of Tunic, which we took a monster foot to solve. Because that's where the real wealth of the game is hidden. A big crush.

    Tunic has more than fulfilled our expectations. We had placed high hopes on Andrew Shouldice's work for its proposal and artistic display; luckily, everything we had seen in the demo and trailers was actually the tip of the iceberg. Finji scores another unique title of the independent scene, an action adventure, puzzles and exploration with its own personality. It never ceases to surprise from start to finish and strings together secrets one after another. A worthy exercise of confidence and perseverance: the wait was worth it.

    Tunic effectively does almost everything you could expect from a game inspired by the pair of green tunic and Master Sword. But don't go in expecting something more than a pale imitation of those things.

I got lost in the world and all of its secrets that lies within it. You can tell that a lot of love went into this game. Andrew Shouldice really did an outstanding job along with the smallest team ever. Also, One of the most ingenious ways to use a game guide/book. Expand

    I had fun playing it for quite a while, but what turned me off of the game were the considerable spikes in difficulty in the game. Also, at times it can be quite unclear what you have to do next. And as the game map is quite large, that made for some frustrating gameplay.
    Maybe I'm just not the intended public for this game, but I'd say it could have done with some more fine-tuning...
