  • A Solid Concept Jul 21, 2018

    By Tommie Taco
    I picked this game up because it was on sale and I had always wanted to give it a try. The concept of the game is very well thought out and executed, sending you through the world picking up chests that alter every aspect of the game from the visuals to the core gameplay mechanics, guiding you on a journey through RPG history. It was very enjoyable seeing all the little nods and also immediately picking up on the inspirations when the gameplay would change, giving me an idea of what might come next. However, the game is extremely short and could have brought a much broader and lengthier experience to bear. Just as I began to really enjoy the experience, the curtain closed and the credits rolled, leaving me wanting more. My rating of Evoland is a solid 4/5. While the game is fun and enjoyable, it is too short to really be able to enjoy the concept to its fullest. With Evoland 2 out now on IOS, I recommend foregoing this entry and jumping straight into it’s sequel, which appears to be a lengthier experience.

    Great fun, challenging without the frustration. Only issue's are that sometimes the controls are a bit lackluster. Like when dealing with large groups of bats. The only other thing is that I'd like to be able to see what in-game achievements I have collected. Don't want to go around killing 100 skeletons if I've already done it

  • Evolved My Perspective Mar 9, 2020

    By EmilyApricot
    Evoland II is a much fuller game. Evoland was more of a short technical experiment, which proved to generate a lot of interest. One of the most profound parts of both games is they help me see how a game's look and genre defines the experience. Evoland single handedly helped me realize I don't like the JRPG genre, although I appreciate qualities of some of the games that display it. It also helped me see I do appreciate modern graphics, although I am hooked on some charming classic games. Evoland is designed as a walk through the evolution of games, but it just might evolve how you look at them.

    I really want to love this game, but the controls are absolutely horrible. Graphics aren't too good either. I am really disappointed about the girl character as well... Would've loved to have had an option to use her... The whole story line with her doesn't sit right at all

  • A NOSTALGIA TRIP!!! Jul 5, 2018

    By Acortez2216
    I have played games like The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy 7, Chrono Trigger and many other RPGs and this game is giving me some major nostalgia vibes. Even though it mirrors many games it stays fresh with this concept of finding better graphics on chest as loot to improve your game. The weird part about it is that even if it didn’t have that I could have easily played this game as a over the top 2D Zelda clone. Very well put put together. Money well spent and it just keeps getting better and better after every chest you find. It really shows you the power that we hold on our hands with these devices.

    Horrible controls and have to go a the way back to the menu to try again. The tutorial is OH-KO. With clunky controls, there's no way I can enjoy the game.

    Game is Broken won't load past you've got right key at the start of the game. I guess when the developer made the 2nd one he forgot about this one😑 Even though the first one is the reason why this one exsit. Oh well😂

    I would say that this game is a good deal at $2.99 but I'm going to count my medical bills due to the ulcers from constant cheap deaths due to slippery controls as part of the game's cost. Joking aside, I got a refund for this and and plan to use that towards the more expensive PC version as this seems like it would actually be fun with controls that function well. This sort of gameplay just doesn't go well with the input method. So I recommend this game but not on this platform.

  • A Retro RPG Masterpiece! Jul 25, 2020

    By W6GQL
    If you have ever cut every last blade of grass in Hyrule, learned every Moogle dance, raised every Mana Seed to level 8, changed clothes three times to give cider to an old man, or read every gravestone in Arcanum, this game is your crack. What starts with a brief blunder through monochrome 8-bit animation, grows with the progression of technology and storytelling as you earn “color” and “background music”, and later “monsters” and “side quests”... I think I’m at about 1994 now, and loving every second of it! Well worth the price of admission. Much less hassle than blowing on cartridges.

  • Best mobile game i have ever played!!! Apr 20, 2018

    By thekiller101
    This game is fantastic! I have only played for about a half hour but i had such a fun time so far! This game has definitely had a lot of effort put into it! Honestly i would gladly pay 10$ for this game! i don’t know how long this game is and that may or may not change my rating but so far so good. although i think you definitely could of stretched out the first 10 min and added some more monsters.

  • Should have had more Mar 26, 2018

    By Yangsta(Ken)
    The game itself was truly amazing. The little history of gaming display was very well done. The gameplay was puzzling and that was perfect. I liked the different areas that changed the game. To Zelda. To FinalFantasy. To Diablo. To the others, it was amazing. Wished it could have definitely been longer and have had way more of a longer story too. Looking forward to maybe playing Evoland 2. Good cost for this game.

  • I don’t usually write reviews. Mar 30, 2019

    By KingOfTheAve
    This game is amazing. As someone who has played adventure games since the game Adventure on Atari 2600, the feeling of nostalgia I received from this game was incredible. It pays such a fun tribute to the different eras of adventure games in such a seamless fashion. My only complaint is that it isn’t longer, but it was worth the $0.99. I look forward to playing Evoland 2, and hope it is only an extension of this homage to old school games.

  • RPG History Dec 3, 2017

    By Radouigi
    Evoland is more of a creative homage to the history of role-playing games than a game in its own right--and interpreting it as such is the key to maximum enjoyment. Everything's a bit shallow from the plot to the gameplay, but everything is also a reference. The one thing I truly wish it had though was controller support, because the touch screen controls are clunky and in a few places virtually unbearable. But again, the real merit of this product is as interactive history more so than as a game.

    It was a super fun game. It ended on a good note. I wish the controls were a lot better but the core game helps with that flaw. Overall loved it.

    I really, really wanted to like this game, but either the controls suck or I suck. Either way, I didn't even finish the first dungeon because I didn't have nearly the fine movement control needed to stop dying. I nearly threw my phone across the room. Everything else was wonderful! I was really enjoying the way the game was unfolding...

  • Extremely Clever...At First Jun 25, 2018

    By John Daniel Hubbard
    The game is extremely clever and witty for the first few hours, particularly as it moves from Gameboy to N64 graphics and riffs on Zelda and Diablo. With that said, once it settles into spoofing FFVII (the entire back half of the game), it really loses all creativity and becomes very generic. For how clever and fun the first 3 hours were, the back 3 hours are a complete chore, and it stops parodying/celebrating RPG tropes and instead just uses them as its main storytelling devices. Fun for a bit, but you might want to just stop playing once you feel the novelty wear off.

    Amazing game and i love it, but please add a cloud saving feature, so that we won't lose our progress in case something happens on our device (for example reset it or lose it, etc.).... Then five stars from me!!!!

    I really liked the idea but just got a bit frustrated playing it in the end - it very much echos the old rpgs in way you get zero guidance and have to keep fighting back through areas. Great idea maybe just a bit too loyal to the old format
