  • 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.

    I loved the game. Absolutely worth it. You all really should make this into an official series game. The only thing I have to complain about is that it was way too short. Can you maybe update it and add more to it. If this became a full series and no micro transactions involved beyond buying it then I would certainly pay good money for 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.

    Evoland has a very unique way of presenting itself. It combines games like Diablo, The Legend of Zelda, and Final Fantasy. The game is SHORT, like 2-3 hours short. But the flow of the game works and I feel it would have negative side effects to make it last any longer. The main thing I wish could have been different with the game is to spread out the evolutions. Most of the big evolutions come in the first 50% of the game. After that, only small changes happen. But seriously give it a try.

  • 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.

    Cant really say I enjoyed the game but the trip through nostalgia as the main attraction and the unlockings of gameplay felt like a walk in a video game museum which was a unique experiance. However the gameplay felt like an actual chore and the later stages of the game even forgot what this game was all about, I was expecting unlocks like, revenge cliche or even a credits scene unlock.

    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 always take a star off if the game doesn't auto-rotate. I considered taking another star off for the limited, slow and awkward control scheme. The game itself is typical. Cute walk down memory lane biting styles off other games. 99¢ is a good price point. Any more than that is just a money grab for the limited effort put in this game.

  • 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.

    Awesome idea, and definitely fun at first, but the controls are just horrid, the pad moves all over the place wherever you put your thumb, they fix that and the game is playable, as it is, it's just annoying and makes it too frustrating to keep playing. But it is worth mentioning there's no IAP or anything like that.

  • 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.

    Great little twist on "Upgrade the Game", but the controls are about 10 times as horrible as stated in other comments...even by the final boss, you struggle just to make the game do what you need it to... God FORBID you have to go back for anything though...and don't lose your ship......

  • Impressive Creativity Mar 12, 2018

    By Rey Alonzo
    I was impressed with this game’s creativity at first, but was dismayed by how far apart save points are from each other. It’s an iOS game, not a console game, so consider your audience when adding save functions. Maybe the player picks up a auto/quick save treasure chest mid-game? My final time playing was when I got stuck with those weird wind tunnel booby traps in one of the dungeons. I kept dying and the nearest save point was too far to keep retrying.

  • It’s A’ight Oct 25, 2018

    By 4mplifi3d
    First I’ll start off by safe ALL mobile apps have a crappy interface for moving characters around on a touch screen. That said, the game was quite enjoyable— very enjoyable because it kept me in anticipation wondering “when am I going to learn a new skill? Who is going to join my party? When do I get to ride their version of a Chocobo?” But it disappointed when none of that happened. It is EXTREMELY short and I don’t think there was really a point to grinding and leveling up, especially since it doesn’t seem to matter with the fights where you control your character with the thumb stick. Let’s see how EVOLAND 2 is. I did enjoy this game, but it’s short short short.
