- Some graphics could use more contrast
8 / 10
A good amount of gameplay for a week's worth game jam. The scope is quite well controlled as well. I assume the devs had a good design doc. The game was smartly designed, especially the map. The layout of the map was unique and well laid out. I had no trouble understanding where things were or what things were.
The puzzles were smartly laid out, very straightforward. I was impressed by some of them in their obviousness but also their cleverness.
The boss character was well done. The frog was a good battle and almost gave me a run for my money. The complexity of the battle was well balanced.
The enemies were designed well enough, felt like typical 2D Zelda fair.
Overall great gameplay.
8 / 10
The graphics for this game, while distinct and vibrant, were rather flat. Or, I should say, the graphics lacked contrast. I could not see doors when it was fairly obvious they should have been visible. I would suggest a lighter tone around darker shades.
The game's variety of graphics were very impressive, however. There seemed to be much variance in tilesets and characters and enemies. Also, these graphics simply WORK. First thing I noticed in the game were the graphics, so I must give that to this game. Rain looks good, things are crisp, colors are well chosen.
Overall great graphics.
7 / 10
The sound of the game is typical Zelda fare. Impressive use of sound fullness. Meaning, each action had a sound. Each event had a sound. The sounds were not empty. I was pleased with the music. A good choice of overworld, tavern, dungeon and boss themes. However, the dungeon theme did overstretch it's welcome and was very repetitive after some time within the area.
Overall good sound.
Final Words
8 / 10
This game features some great graphics, straightforward gameplay and fun puzzles. Overall, I believe this is a great game for a week. Impressive work my dudes. Well done.
