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.
