Ocean’s Heart is a Zelda-love, in the sense that it’s a 2D, high-down sword swinger in the vein of Hyperlink To The Previous. That manner you’ll by no manner perceive the extra or less vista that’s in its key art (high left, above). You’ll by no manner perceive that comely blue sky. And but, and but, I’m in a position to no longer face up to the promise of a portion of art love that. I click on every game that makes utilize of it.
Ocean’s Heart if fact be told is a Zelda-love. You swing your sword and fireplace arrows, and fall into dungeons to solve environment puzzles and beat up baddies and launch esteem chests. It’s sprite art is de facto adorable, with sweet little marketplaces and moist plains and unfamiliar crow beasts. There’s furthermore crafting and magic shenanigans happening.
However if fact be told it’s the significant art that drew me to it. It changed into the same kind of list that first drew me to Genshin Affect boring final year, but any other game that changed into consciously riffing on Zelda tropes. It’s appealing for quite obtrusive causes. The blue sky, the inexperienced, lush panorama, and the promise of curious locations to locate.
Genshin delivered on the delusion in spades by supplying you with the capability to climb, that manner that you must perchance well perchance scale any cliff you thought could perchance you a apt survey from the tip. There’d basically be a rock or a bench at the tip to perch on, too, letting you soak in the vista. Ocean’s Heart’s high-down perspective manner it could well perchance well’t receive the same, however the trailer above does have a apt sense of a whisk across an infinite world.
Ocean’s Heart is out now on Steam and will impress you £13.50/$15/€15.
