It is not all that often that we get to discuss games that are similar to Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is just that though, complete down to having a boat to get around the game world’s islands. Oceanhorn is not a rip-off but more of a homage to Nintendo’s classic. A beautiful homage.
Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas features 15 hours of gameplay, controller/mouse/keyboard controls and 3D graphics that look great. The cool thing is, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is available on Good old Games right now.
The similarities between Wind Waker and Oceanhorn are quite glaring. You play a character that is looking for his father, instead of a lost love, and you have a sword as an offensive weapon. There is more focus on platforming action in Oceanhorn than there is in Wind Waker. There are larger than life creatures to take on and even multiple methods of travel available to you as the game progresses.
There are plenty of puzzles and challenges to face along the way in Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas. Some are probably going to feel familiar to anyone that has played a lot of Legend of Zelda games. That is not a problem for many though as Zelda was great fun.
Previously Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas was an Apple iOS game. The PC version features graphics that have received a nice kick up in the graphics and sound departments and of course, better controls are now available. If you have a game controller available then you will probably get a lot more out of Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas than if you are trying to play with a keyboard and mouse. These types of games are just better suited for a controller, just like First Person Shooters are better with a keyboard and mouse.
