I have no idea what I was getting myself into when I downloaded Evoland from the Mac App Store.
After getting some iTunes vouchers, I knew I wanted to play some form of platformer game on my desktop and this sounded intriguing.
The concept of Evoland is simple – it starts off as a very early style video game in black and white, almost the type of game you would play on the original Gameboy, and as you progress through the game and collect stars, the game starts to evolve into something more like the video games today.
You gain better sound, better graphics, the way your hit points are measures changes..
It’s like a mix between Pokemon, Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy and Skyrim all in one. It even has some cool hidden jokes and references in there that certainly kept me amused!
The game isn’t very long, after a couple of evenings I found myself at the final boss.
If you’re looking for some nostalgia, a short but amusing story line, then this game is for you.
