Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted is fun-filled with tons of exploration and continuous discovery. Your hero wields a sword and a shield, as well as other nifty gadgets that he finds and earns along the way. You will have to solve fun and simple puzzles along the way, but none of which we’ve found to be so challenging that we were stuck at any level. The gameplay is almost a clone of The Legend of Zelda, but not quite as perfect. However, the game holds its own, so expect hours of fun. We gave the gameplay a 4.5 / 5.
