Review

Oceanhorn is an adventure videogame developed by Cornfox & Brothers and published by FDG Entertainment. This app is only available for those devices using iOS. The title focuses on a boy who leaves a small island, trying to find his lost father and to defeat the Oceanhorn, a terrifying mechanical beast and living fortress.

The line between copycats and tributes is thin, and Oceanhorn walks it with varying degrees of success. The game closely follows the style seen in Legend of Zelda series, especially A Link to the Past and Wind Waker, from the graphics design to gameplay mechanics (you can even throw pots and cut bushes). However, Oceanhorn does have its own identity, which shines through the storyline.

The strongest point of this game is neither the plot nor the playability, but the amazing soundtrack. The whole gameplay is accompanied by delightful melodies composed by Kenji Ito and the legendary Nobuo Uematsu, best known for scoring the majority of titles in Final Fantasy series. In fact, the main theme reminds us of the Final Fantasy X soundtrack.

An Epic Journey

Oceanhorn tells the story of a boy who leaves the safety of a small island to find his father and learn more about his lost mother. Dark Energy has corrupted a sea monster known as Oceanhorn, suspected of killing the boy’s father and cursing many islands. To restore balance, the boy needs to gather the sacred emblems of Ocean, Earth and Sol to defeat the beast using a legendary sword and the power of the gods.

The gameplay mechanics are essentially the same that you would find when playing Zelda

The gameplay mechanics are essentially the same that you would find when playing Zelda, as the dungeon layouts are almost identical and the ocean sailing is taken directly from Wind Waker. You are free to go around exploring different islands, fighting enemies, completing dungeon passages and looting chests. However, there are some unique features: you earn experience by killing enemies, which raises your level and grants you useful bonuses such as increased stamina or inventory expansions. The way you discover new locations is one of the best parts. You have to chat with people and get them to mention new islands that you chart on your map. You will learn about your father’s adventures as you discover new islands through audio passages.
