Even the Ocean is a game that really gripped me from the beginning. The story is exactly what I admire in works of art, offering up a relevant and interesting view of the world that will stay with me. The gameplay is really solid but it starts too easy and only towards the end was it starting to feel like it was reaching it's potential. I would love more, harder levels as it is such a joy to control. The mechanics are so solid I couldn't help but imagine so many more possibilities for it!. So to bring that together, great, meaningful story with fun, solid gameplay mechanics but a little too easy and I am left craving more! I'd like to say thank you very much to the creators for the beautiful experience and I look forward to their future projects!
Sin duda en el lado m?s f?cil para cualquier persona que desempe?a una gran cantidad de plataformas Puede ser un poco de serm?n, que de hecho disfrutamos pero pude ver a la gente poniendo los ojos un poco.
Even the Ocean is a fun platformer that has one main gameplay mechanic where you balance your horizontal/vertical alignment as you make your way through stages. The full story will last around six hours. Pros: Lots of mechanics added throughout the game so that no stage feels like a repeat of a previous one Some stages are quite enjoyably puzzling Plentiful save points All characters major and minor have wonderful portraits Robust post-game is a real treat Many, diverse accessibility options in case you want to play for the story and aren't too keen on platforming, or just need to change something to improve your enjoyment Cons: Definitely on the easy side for anyone who plays a lot of platformers Can get a little preachy, which I actually enjoyed but I could see people rolling their eyes a little.
Even the Ocean is a 2D platformer with a unique health system. The game begins with you traveling to fix a malfunctioning power station, you end up losing the protective suit you were wearing in an accident and salvage a shield from it. You will move through areas while gaining either light or dark energy by running through emery fields, getting hit by projectiles, or running into the green or purple colored objects that give off the energy. The energy meter serves as your life-bar, gaining too much of either energy will kill you but gaining more of one can give different benefits, more dark allows you to run faster and more light allows you to jump higher. Your shield can block projectiles in any direction and you can jump up or off of walls, new gameplay elements are added later such as strong winds pushing you back or shields that will protect you from one element of their color but be destroyed if you hit the other. Graphics are like an older SNES game with some nice details for the backgrounds and areas of the games, both from the perspective of being interesting to look at and at telling you about the world the game takes place in, the game has a very diverse cast of characters with each one getting their own portrait when you talk to them. The story is more focused on character relationships and the politics of the game's world. The game supports different modes of play when starting it that can make the game easier or more difficult, on the default story mode I found the game pretty simple but for people that want a more relaxing experience and a focus on the story and characters this might be what you want.
An incredibly tender and charming story-based platformer built on a unique health system of managing your light and dark energy. After making it through a slightly sluggish tutorial level and underwhelming first stage, I soon found myself falling in love with Even the Ocean. While the game has some truly engaging platforming (especially towards the latter parts of the game), Even the Ocean really shines with its thoughtful story and fulfilling NPC interactions. Tying in themes of identity, race, gender, environmentalism and political corruption (just to name a few), the game was a welcome experience while processing the results of the recent 2016 presidential election. The art direction and sound design is also a high point, putting Even the Ocean on my short list of favorite gentle and atmospheric platformers, right alongside Knytt Underground. I'd fully recommend this game to anyone who enjoys exploration based platformers that are heavy on atmosphere, or to anyone who is looking to get deep with a thoughtful and inclusive narrative.
