I love this game it’s awesome and fun for kids and family
Amazing game! I love the storyline and the simple controls. It reminds me a lot of The Legend is Zelda Wind Waker. I like being able to interact with npc’s and items. Another feature that I love is that you can break pots. 😏 Definitely worth the money, in my opinion, this game is probably worth &20-$30 and you can buy it for eight! I definitely recommend it.
This game is worth every penny
This game was and is AWESOME! I grew up on Arcades, Atari, Nintendo, Sega, everything up through the PS4 and consoles today my kids enjoy, and it brought me back to when I actually enjoyed playing games and figuring out puzzles and bosses again. Have it on my iPhone, but bought a nimbus controller for my Apple TV 4K and played through with my 12 and 3 year olds on the living room tv, and they loved it! The whole family is anticipating part 2, and I couldn’t thank you more for making a game that we all enjoyed together, instead of the typical games these days that everyone runs to their rooms and play alone on their phones and tablets. Great job to all involved, keep up the good work in making what games were originally meant to be! Highly recommended!
The puzzles are fairly easy, the boss battles are too hard because the controls are awkward, and the smaller monsters spawn so often that it’s just annoying whack-a-mole most of the time. It just wasn’t fun. Wish I could get a refund.
If you wanna play Zelda this game is for you! It is an amazing game and very fun and very big and lots of fun puzzles, I have about 5 hours in it and I’m probably 1/3 through it but maby not even that far. People have complained about the controls being a little hard during the boss battles but i feel its more of the camera angle moving a little funny or too fast but I don’t feel it is worth complaining about. It is a 20 dollar game in my opinion and can’t wait to buy the next one. I never buy games but this one was worth it. Also it would be nice to click on the map and it show a lager map because I got a little confused as to where I was at times and seeing a bigger map would help. Being able to skip through traveling on the boat would be nice too. Great job guys! Thanks for the experience!
Oceanhorn is a gorgeous, fun and expansive game that is well worth the asking price. It might be one of the most beautiful games on the App Store. Gameplay is smooth and the controls work well except during the boss battles where the speed and accuracy needed to win exceed the ability of iPhone touch controls. That is maddening and time consuming, but I did eventually complete the game. The puzzle solving side of the game is pretty average. The story line is decent, but could have easily been more interesting. It’s family friendly and has a good soundtrack. Oceanhorn is in a class by itself on the App Store. I'm looking forward to Oceanhorn 2, hoping it will retain the beauty and charm of this game. I really have no idea why other developers don’t make games like this.
No, seriously. I’m waiting for it to download. I’ve restarted with and without WiFi. I’ve emailed about it already. If I can’t download this I demand a refund. I won’t pay for something I can’t play...
The joystick is weird sometimes and doesn’t work that well sometimes but other than that the graphics and story are nice
I love it
Please make a second one. Probably the best game on the App Store hands down.
I loved this game through all of its hard times, confusing, and frustrating moments ,but that made the game even more challenging and fun I loved the graphics for a game on a phone it’s amazing. The music for the game is in it self the best thing. I can’t wait for Oceanhorn 2.
I love the Legend of Zelda art style, but all it does is take everything about the series and make it boring. The puzzles are monotonous and uncreative. The story and dialog are generic and bland. If they actually had a decent story, fun puzzles, and engaging combat, it could be a great game.
I think it's an okay game but could be much better like haven't more than one character interacting with real people clans and wars. I think there should be an online mode we're you can fight other people and get higher ranking points. After that you should make more sequels
I love the story,graphics,and music,but I don't really know what to do.
Iphone screen controls for this game were comfortable on my iPhone 5s, IPhone 6+ and iPad. The game play included new land discovery as well as old land discovery with new tech to open new regions. The game developers deserve a pay on the shoulders.
Why do other reviewers like this game? The music is annoying (there appears to be no way to shut it off) and the game suffers from lack of a plot sufficient to justify the silly puzzles it puts you through. I gave up after a couple hours of play, frustrated that I, once again, fell for the Editor’s idea of what constitutes a good game.
So I pay 8 dollars for the game it's playable on my phone and apple TV but I have to pay again for the I pad? No thanks I've had enough of greedy money hungry developers.
I do not like the game to much, I was exited at first but then I was so confused on what to do and I do not recommend to anyone. There are no adds though the graphics are ok but I do not like the story in general. It is too big as well instead get a better game and do not make the mistake I did.😖
This platform-defining title proves the iPhone and iPad work as full-fledged mobile and portable consoles. The music, presentation, and locations showcase this quite nicely. I simply wish I could enjoy the full experience. I bought this game to work with my MFi gamepad, so I can lean back and play on my iPad mini as a portable console. Unfortunately, the text is so small on iPad in the menu and short signs, I constantly have to lean forward to see what is going on, ruining the experience for me. Also, MFi controller support is lacking. On my Steel Series Stratus, X / A attack and Y / B Use item (such as shield). This is not customizable, and means I have to move my thumb to switch between attack and item. Also, on the pause menu, the cursor snaps to selectable items. This is fine, but makes the center area hard to see. Also, I cannot scroll the log text with the controller. The control issues are manageable, but that combined with the tiny text caused me to delete the game unfinnished.
I bough the game in hopes it would be like Zelda but it was not I hope to get my eight dollars back
1.5 hours into the game, my son got stuck between a tree and some rocks. There was no way to get out, and since it seems that the game only has a single save slot, he had to start over. Im not impressed. I'd rather spend $50 on a Nintendo game than than $5 on a buggy imitation.
I do really like this game, from a Zelda graduate. But I can’t seem to get beyond the Forest Shrine monster, no matter how many times I have tried. I’m ready to delete this app out of pure frustration; unless there is another way to defeat him of which I don’t know. Geesh, even make a special buy out feature so we can continue our journey .
I have this game for the nintendo switch and it is really fun
For Zelda lovers and puzzle game lovers in general, this game has wowed me time and time again. I am 7 hours in and having a blast. The music, the concepts and the graphics are not exactly new, but they are presented in a fresh format and very to use on iPhone. This is the first review i have ever left for anything. I usually don’t bother. This game is worth every penny.
Own it on the Apple TV.
So frustrated. Bought it due to the great marketing apparently because the game itself is a huge fail. Played about 7% before the slow motion gameplay bug hit and rendered it unplayable. Nothing fixes it. The only way to fix it is to delete and redownload, losing all your progress. What little I did play wasn’t enjoyable due to really poor controls and other bugs like getting stuck between 2 objects. Asking for a refund.
I’m having trouble understanding why this game has such a high rating... It is a good game, music is good, the whole idea of it is good. Control is not so good, character always throw bombs never sets bomb down so bombs easily get wasted, game save function is terrible, it never saves exactly where you leave off/when you return to saved game i find myself completing tasks i already completed prior to previous game save/not cool at all, creativity with dialogue is terrible/“be careful in dungeon because there is puzzles in there”? Seriously? How about... lets be a little more creative?? This is only one example... the game is full of bland “uncreative” dialogue. This game needs help Response to developer response... There’s no reason to contact you. I’ve explained clearly and concisely the problems therein. I clearly understand it’s up to you(the developer) to do what you will with the app.
From the music to the graphics to the storyline and the puzzles this is one of the most beautiful games ever created!!! I have a SPECIAL LOVE for this game!!!! Took a while but I beat the full game, yet I find myself still playing the theme music on the piano often! I wish I could I UNplay it and play it again lol. It has to be the best mobile adventure game ever created!! If you love Zelda, you'll love this just as much. It will put you in mind of it but to me it still stands in a class of its own! It's special!!!! The game rocks!!! I loved every minute of it. I hope that oceanhorn 2 is as good as this one when it comes out!!! If it’s not broke don’t fix it! Stick with some of the same stuff! I’ll love it!!
Finally! A mobile that pretty much plays exactly like a Zelda game! Including the graphics! It’ll take you a while to beat but it’s so worth the $8! Took me a while to beat but it was such an awesome adventure! Get this game if you love Zelda games! Can’t wait for the 2nd one!
This game could have been great. it takes too long to level up, no option to to change camera angles, some minor bugs. i’ve got 21 hours in this game and still only at level 14. it will be a long time before i play it again.
This game is a great way to kill a bunch of time. I downloaded it for a flight I was taking and couldn’t stop playing for a few days after my flight until I beat it. It is very similar to Zelda so if you like Zelda you will love this game.
What’s with the drop in frame rate I experience sometimes?
This game is excellent! A true Zelda-like game! I really had fun playing it the first time and played through again right after I beat it the first time. The single camera angle can be frustrating. I would really appreciate the ability to move the camera angle, and to have the ability to look around. Aiming arrows and going on the precise direction I intended could also frustrating, but they didn't make that big of a difference. All in all, a really well designed game. I would LOVE to play a sequel if it was ever made.
This game is great and all I love the graphics and the missions are good but there’s one thing I don’t like, and that’s the fact that it does not have a joy stick for the character to move properly. If I press on one side of the screen the character goes on that direction instead of the direction I want it to go. If it had a joy stick included for the character to move I would give it 5 star but for now it stays at 3 stars.
This game is easily my new favorite. There’s something magical about this game on a tiny screen. Absolutely amazing.
I enjoyed every moment of game play. I recommend this game for anyone. The challenge was perfect and I loved the storyline. Only issue I have is...where is the second installation?
A review is a rarity for me, but Oceanhorn is a rare game. The music is stirring and beautiful, the plot is intriguing, and there are some characters who I genuinely care for after just a conversation. A Zelda-style adventure worth playing.
My character fell down into an area behind a tree on Tikarel and there is no way out. Can’t jump. Can you add a stick character option?
I loves game like this it’s so adventure and makes you want to play more. I wish more games like this would be available. Maybe and new story line in it with it. It’s a replica of Zelda which is great!
Complaint 1, sailing wasn’t how I had hoped it’d be, still love it, kind of a small let down Complaint 2, OceanHorns bombs need to be fixed cause they AUTOMATICALLY LAND ON ME WITH 0 TIME TO REACT
It won’t download...any suggestions?
Great controls, great graphics, easy to solve puzzles, worth every penny! If you are a Legend of Zelda fan, this is a must have.
I played this game thinking cool though could be better for it’s cost. Until I got to some puzzles which is confusing for any starter if they didn’t watch videos for help. The Cave island at the start of game is confusing since it is hard to know where you are or where you need to go. Which is also a problem you don’t get any help from a passive guide that helps u during confusing moments. The cost to get is higher then cheap console games that have better game content. I give 2 stars not because I kinda hate (Not worth it)but that it has a ship to sail in and that’s all (though more to the ship please). But those who think that it is worth 9 dollars are fake or they just have not seen the many bugs listed by other reviews.
This is a fun game with a retro Zelda like feel to it. The puzzles and dungeons are pretty unoriginal, but for a $8 mobile game I’m willing to put up with that. The game lets you explore a huge ocean with lots of islands (like Zelda: Windwaker), but you unfortunately don’t have any control over you boat. Gets a little tedious but worth the $8 for adventure game fans.
I guess decades of game design were lost on this one. The game becomes unplayable at later levels due to poor camera pathing. You simply cannot achieve basic functions due to poor execution of a fundamental element. Pass on this, the development is not appropriate for the 21st century nor should be offered on the App Store.
Best phone game I have played
Game is decent for a iPhone game, but if it was on console or PC no one would give it the time of day. Tries too hard to be a Zelda Windwaker ripoff. There are quite a few bugs where your character can get stuck between a tree and a rock without you anticipating it. Boss battles aren't difficult because they are challenging as much as they are difficult to maneuver and manage, making them frustrating. The writing is mediocre at best, save the world from some evil demon and you're the chosen one blah blah. I enjoyed passing the time by beating the game once, but probably will never play again. Definitely worth the $8, and the graphics are pretty decent for a phone game. Controls are decent and concept is repeatable, just try to fix the monotony and this would be a 5-star game.
