  • Summary: Anodyne is a top-down adventure game inspired by Zelda, but it falls gravely short in every aspect. It's an incredibly basic game. There is no creativity in dungeon designs. The artwork is nauseatingly plain. It lacks a memorable story. The controls are horribly-clunky.

  • Summary: I'm generally a fan of old-school RPGs, I'm all in for supporting indie game developers, but c'mon! This entire trend of crappy games sold as "Indie", "Retro" or "Old-School" is really starting to get on my nerves!

  • Summary: The main storyline of the game was decent, if nothing special (and to actually get to the ending you had to collect every last hidden collectible in the entire game). What I'm here to talk about is the 'post-game' half of the game.

  • Summary: I really wanted to like Anodyne, but it in the end it just doesn't deliver. There are a lot of little ideas in it that are great, and add up to the atmosphere that is cited as its main selling point, but those ideas all have to do with graphics and sound.

  • Summary: Just because you can... doesn't mean you should. I really appreciate all the throwbacks to retro gaming that have been coming out lately, but this just didn't do it for me. Maybe it was the awful way I had to use my joysticks as opposed to a d-pad, maybe it was the horrible music, maybe it was the...

  • Summary: Anodyne is a Zelda-style action game where you explore surreal areas and crawl through dungeons. I really couldn't bring myself to finish this game. While the environments are neat and a bit unsettling, the game's puzzles are really poorly designed and the controls are sub-par, which made this a...

  • Summary: If you are in your mid-twenties, this is the only game you should play this year. Its an inspirational game made by people like us, about us. I grew up on FF3, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger and Zelda. This game fits into that world, explores it further in many respects, and falls short as well.

  • Summary: This game is advertised as zelda-esque, atmospheric adventure game. As this game indeed resembles Zelda graphically it's a far cry from an adventure like Zelda. The story itself is one of those 'you don't know why you are here and everything's strange' -types and you have to follow a certain path to...

  • Summary: I bought this game because people called it "atmospheric". However, I was not captured by it at all-- and I'm the type of person that enjoys these types of games. People need to learn that if you're going to make a game with RPG Maker, you need a good story and music to make it worthwhile.

  • Summary: A great little game. Slick controls, a nice atmosphere and some real excellent music. What starts off as merely strange becomes a journey into the bizarre. Can't recommend this gem enough.
