Play involves exploration and puzzle solving along with challenging encounters with enemies. You must develop the skill and resources to beat them and progress. You choose your own way forwards and decide how and when to take on new areas and enemies. Many routes and secrets are hidden in plain sight for the more inquisitive player.
Cryptic runes and flashbacks hint at your memory of the place, but it remains unfamiliar. Then there are those pages of the manual you find, packed full not only of tips but other hints at what is going on. It's the inturige as much as the challenge that calls you forward.
With hand-drawn style visuals and an eerie soundscape, Tunic tells a story about overcoming loneliness. As a stranger in a strange land, you push on to discover if you are the only one here. Venture too far too soon and it becomes clear that this is not a world inviting your presence. There are terrible things out there, and this tiny fox is going to dig deep to find out why.
Although the game is cartoon in style, there are ferocious monsters and colossal beasts who attack and the screen glows red when you are almost dead.
10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Young children can turn on the no-fail mode to play the game. Older children who like a challenge may also enjoy this.
