A journey to a new universe. What sounds like a science fiction fairytale is basically what every fantasy or rpg game achieves with an ease. They take us to different worlds, kingdoms with raging battles and epic quests. It’s a fantastic journey that games like Evoland will take us on. A brilliant mix of an adventure, a solid action game and a strategic role playing game are United in a new exciting gameplay.
Evoland has to be one of my new favorite games to play on my smartphone. There's nothing like sitting down to a long, entertaining session of this game after a long day of work. As an adult gamer in my 30s, I have been gaming since the Nintendo was the hottest console a kid could own. With that said, I have quite a bit of gaming under my belt, and was pleasantly surprised to find that all of the styles are love are bound together in a neat little package within Evoland.
There is an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia when I play Evoland, and I think that's probably my favorite part about it. Without further gushing over my love for it, how about I dive into what is great about the game and why I think you should download Evoland too!
If you remember playing those 8-bit and 2D games when you were a kid, then you'll appreciate the starting graphics when you play Evoland. You'll even have to reacquaint yourself with the controls of older games, as the developers have made everything feel as close to the original play style as possible.
As you advance through the game, the graphics and controls begin to shift and morph as they have while technology has developed the gaming industry over time. You'll go from flat, monochrome color in 2D, to magnificent, vibrant 3D color and animation.
There's nothing more irritating to me than a game that makes you pay to download it and then hounds you for more money while you're playing the game you've already put money into.
I was pleased to see the super low price tag on Evoland and decided to check it out because of all the game styles available with the title. I'm glad to report that once you pay the low fee to download Evoland, you will never again be bothered to spend a single penny as the game does not have any in-app purchases.
The best part about paying for Evoland is that you don't have to sit through any ads! So, just as you would if you were sitting in front of the TV playing on your console, you will never have to wait for an ad to finish and break you out of your zone!
Although you never want to die when playing any RPG, you definitely won't want to let your guard down when navigating through the dungeons of Evoland.
One of the unfortunate things I've noticed about the game is that once you've died in battle, all of the enemies you previously defeated will respawn, but your health bar will not fill up.
This came as a shock the first time it happened to me, but it sure made me play with more strategy to not catch myself at a disadvantage again.
I could go on for hours about how much I love this game, but Evoland doesn't appear to be flawless either, so I've got to give you the lousy medicine now!
Although the game is optimized to work with most Android devices, the controls tend to get a bit clunky and invasive on some phones or tablets.
There are also a few random crashes here and there that may affect the outcome of your currently saved game tremendously. Some players even found that when they logged back into the game, it had reset their progress back to the start. However, you can't expect a mobile game to come without its random bugs and crashes. Overall, Evoland is a solid game that any seasoned, or young gamer for that matter, would enjoy thoroughly.
