Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Ben Kendall and updated 6 days ago.
You play a young unnamed boy who sets out on an adventure across the ocean in a daring attempt to save his father and defeat the Oceanhorn, a huge living fortress holding him captive. Along the way, you fight offer enemies with different weapons and items you find, solve puzzles to unlock the way forward, and explore dark dungeons filled with secrets and hidden paths. You can cut grass and throw pots to find hidden hearts and coins that allow you to build up your strength and gain experience, letting you take on more powerful foes.
The result is a game that pays homage to older, top-down Zelda games and the sailing from Wind Waker, while still adding its own unique twists like an experience system and a 3D world, making for a nostalgic yet still novel experience.
Rated 9+ on the Apple App Store for Infrequent/Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence and Infrequent/Mild Horror/Fear Themes.
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. This is easier than a full 3D adventure. You still need care and timing over attacks. Younger players need the resilience to keep trying when they seem to be stuck. Laterally thinking is useful for some puzzles.
