Cute, but that’s all. 2/5
And that’s not enough. I played it for about 5 minutes. Sure wish I had my money back...
Classic game 5/5
Great game. Classic style.
Gripping game 5/5
Awesome game, never get board, great storyline. Well done!
Clucked island is Zelda all over
Fundamental Issues 2/5
While the storyline is good, the motion controls on the game are abysmal. Most of the my time in combat was spent making sure my fingers were hitting the small buttons.
Final boss also had quite a few bugs which resulted in me crashing with a null error. Lacks polish
Unique idea, Awful controls 2/5
Buggy touch controls do not work well with this game’s modes. Stuck on the snake game, the directional touch arrow pad does not work accurately.
Truly astonishing 5/5
By stratis gaming
This game is probably in my top 10 favorite games I have ever played. There is the occasional bug, but still, it’s great. Maybe add a DLC, because I’d just love more content, I just can’t get enough of it
Uniquely flawed 1/5
The good parts of this game are very good, but a lot of the experience, especially on mobile, is unpolished or outright bad.
Controls are ok at best, but at their worst they are extremely frustrating to use. Some boss fights/mini games required for progression are so absurdly difficult (even more so because of the controls) that they just make you want to stop playing.
The game also lacks direction at times, the lack of a quest log and sometimes unclear objectives have caused plenty of frustration and wasted time in my playthrough. In one instance I resorted to looking up a guide while attempting to solve an unsolvable puzzle because the dialogue failed to make clear that I needed to first travel across the map to pick up a required item. In another instance unclear objectives led to me aimlessly wandering the map until I found the storyline again because one missed dialogue box can mean you have absolutely no idea how you are supposed to continue. This game would greatly benefit from the inclusion of a quest log.
I wish I could recommend this game. The storyline is intriguing and the gameplay is creative and unique. But due to its often unrelenting and unrewarding difficulty, which is caused by poor level and interface design, it isn’t worth the frustration.
This is one of the best games in the App Store. Controls can be glitchy at times and some levels are slightly too long, but the richness, quality and length of the game easily makes up for it. I’m going on 30 hours of play and still haven’t completed the story and am discovering new things.
If you have issues with the controls for certain gameplay styles try tweaking them in the settings. That worked for me.
Bugs on iOS 3/5
1. Not saving. Autosave not working.
2. Glitches on screen.
So many references! 4/5
I haven’t even played an hour of this game yet I’ve noticed references from many different universes. Downwell, Prof. Layton, Pokémon, TMNT, Zelda, MGS, and more! I can’t wait to see how much more there are!
Great Game 5/5
Fantastic game, it fixed the length issue of the first installment and expanded on the clever nods to retro media. The only thing I didn’t like was the new take on world evolution. I won’t spoil it for anyone, just buy it and find out. You know you’re going to, and it is completely worth the dollar.
Controls need major fixing 1/5
Could be a perfect game if the controls were useable.
Can use them fine for certain portions but the controls are wack for half the game.
Not worth full price till controls are fixed.
Well made 5/5
Getting very nostalgic with the classic game nods. It’s well made, good puzzles, clever, and worth the money (I got it on sale for 1$ but if I could have tested first I’d have paid more)
very fun adventure 5/5
excellent game. reminds me of the old nintendo days. plays great with screen controls too.
From story to controls to health. This game is so bad. Nothing like evoland 1. Where are all the incremental upgrades on different aspects of the game? Whenever i get a treasure chest i get a “star” or goop or something stupid. Also the health in this NEEDS to be increased. Because of the terrible controls, youll get hit by a fireball or something 5 times before your character turns to move all while youre holding right on the “joystick”. Waste of money. Thank god i pirated the first one so i only paid for one. Trash.
Buy it when it’s $0.99 4/5
This game has a lot of content and it took me 19 hours to complete. At its best you are able to choose from a variety of different types of games. However, you will eventually have to go through each of these types whether it’s bullet hell, turn-based strategy, or platformer. Some are done well, most are not. This extends to all elements of Evoland 2, including its story which could be really cheesy sometimes. However, I still liked this game, and it’s better than most iPhone games.
Great game but 4/5
By pinaple underpants
It has a really bad glitch and that is the only thing bad about it and this glitch is where the spiky thing you need to walk across spawns really high up so you can not progress
Awesome game! 5/5
I don’t know what all the whining is about. I just finished the mushroom area in less than 30 min. Stop blaming Noob skills on the controls. The sections of this game are fun and challenging without being impossible. Don’t change a thing! This game is well worth the money! Filled with action, puzzles and every style of gaming there is! All with a GREAT plot story! I’m already looking forward to future sequels! Thanks and GREAT JOB!
Too difficult with controls :( 2/5
It was a wonderful game until I got to the shadow clones and spent hours trying to beat them with no luck. I just tried again for another hour but it’s a no go. It’s super frustrating because I was pretty far into the game and couldn’t end up going any further due to faulty controls.
Wonderful game, ruined for me 3/5
The developers clearly put a ton of love into this game. It’s long and consistently innovative, with a cool story and no grinding. It’s a legit AAA experience. I was 14 hours in and had spent a weekend beating some extremely challenging dungeons, mini games, and bosses, and then in the morning my game had lost 7 hours of progress. (All that remained, weirdly, were my achievements.) I was crushed. Apparently they’ve fixed this problem now, but it’s too late for me. No matter what I do, my game loads at around the 7 hour mark. I don’t have the time or energy to replay all those hours. But if it’s truly fixed, I would still recommend this game to anyone who loves retro RPG/adventure games. I wish I could’ve seen it though to the end!
Beat the guy in the ghost castle to move to boulder on Maynard bridge. Boulder is gone off the map, but still there when I zone in. The game won’t progress anymore for me. :(
Unusable controls ruin otherwise great game 2/5
Touch controls are buggy and often get stuck so I can’t move. The concept is fun and the level design generally interesting. I love the tributes to genres and gaming eras, but I’m going to have to stop now that I am in the 3D world with controls that keep screwing up.
I was able to muddle through and now I at a small mini game of Pac-Man that has controls that I have to tap on like crazy to get them to do anything. Plus Pac-Man gets stuck on the walls when you push a direction too early.
What a waste of all this effort to create this game, just to put in so little effort where it really counts.
support Korean lanquage 4/5
Do you have any plan to support Korean lanquage?
Terrible controls ruin 5 star game 1/5
Hair trigger platformer requiring surgical precision + controls that only respond 80% of the times = garbage.
Lost Save Data 4/5
Game was great until I about 2 hours in when I received an error that forced me to quit and pushed my save back, losing an hour an a half of progress. :(
Punishing difficulty 2/5
I was really enjoying the story, including the obvious Chrono Trigger inspiration. But the platforming sections are incredibly frustrating, especially when I make a difficult jump only to fall later and lose my progress. I finally reached the rooftop chase, and there’s this one jump between two jets that I just can’t make after dozens of tries. This crosses the line from difficulty to punishment, and I refuse to continue. A shame, since 90% of the gameplay is great. I wish there were a way to skip the frustrating points and finish the story.
Saving Issue 3/5
I was at the point where you enter the mine to find Reno and Plum conversing. I went through the whole mine and got to the boss fight with Plum. After dying multiple times, I quit the app only to find out that when I went back in, none of my progress had saved. This happened again after going through the mine and this time defeating Plum. My progress was lost. I had then continued to play for hours, getting very far and found that if I didn’t close the app upon locking my phone, the game would be alright. After getting two of the five Magi keys, the game crashed and when I opened it back up I was back in the mine. Everything that I had done was gone. I am very angry and want to continue the game but do not want to lose my progress. This game is very good and I love it a lot but if I can’t get anywhere without having to do it all over again, I don’t want to keep wasting my time. Please fix this! I want to beat this game and get all the cards and stars so bad, but sadly I can not. Please fix.
Best iOS since Oceanhorn 3/5
This is a fantastic game with TONS of content, lots of humor (some clever, some groanworthy), a crazy bunch of minigames (with horrible controls, but playable anyway) spanning every genre imaginable, and a saving bug that took me five play hours back to the mines and lost all the progress, cards, and treasures I picked up in that time. Five stars EASILY if I didn’t have to keep starting from the cart puzzles and replaying everything every time I set my iPad down.
4/5 because ... 4/5
The game is well made and is extremely fun the only thing I have a problem with is the fact that it feels that the developers didn’t care and just chucked the game onto the AppStore. First it says tab to switch character which is for computers secondly the cross button for movement and stuff is way to small and way to hard to use so when you do the mini games such as snakes it’s almost impossible to beat with out melting down trying to finish the game.Finally the save points are scuffed and when I got the earth shard and came back to it I had to start back over form the second to last part of the war of Demonia
so I had to beat the boss twice. Overall great game
Play It! (And Hopefully Be Ok With the Controls) 4/5
Hi...so I almost NEVER write these things because I’m lazy and apps don’t normally move me very much. However this app has it all - every genre I can think of outside of an FPS experience is what you will get with this app - a choice team of characters you can build up throughout the story, and a plot line and world that by the end you really CARE about. It’s rare that I care for a game, let alone an app; this game had me dodging work to continue playing it until the end, and I highly suggest it to most people out there - it’s truly worth your time, I promise.
That being said, I got two main detractors from this otherwise pretty spotless game:
1. Controls can get pretty wonky and unresponsive at times when you need them to be at their best, which I think is what most people reviewing this app seem to get fed up with. I used default settings though and managed to get through the game relatively unscathed, although some parts I did have to work at a bit before I could progress. TIGHTER CONTROLS WOULD BE AMAZING.
2. Devs, GOD I love this game (even more than Evo I,) but for the love of all that is real the endings of these games stink, man! Give us something we want to see and feel like we earned not some loopy way to finish the experience (wink wink) I WANT A MORE RESOLVED ENDING FOR THE NEXT ONE PLEASE
4.5/5 one of the best apps I’ve ever seen or played
Fun Game, AWFUL controls 2/5
Im dropping this review to 2 stars from my previous 3. Im about 10 hours in, and my patience is wearing thin.
This game is slowly becoming the Prince of Persia, Warrior Within level of frustration for me...
Made it past The Rooftop Stage, the Mine Stage and now Im into the Lab Stage. I beat Reno, walked around the lab for a sec, and turned off my phone to go to real world stuff. When I came back, I found that the game didn't save any progress, I had to fight Reno again (even though the Lab Door opened...) and tap through the entire dialogue again.
I could have overlooked a few things, but those little things, dodgy controls, ambiguous saving, and levels that just go on really, really start to make what should be a delightful romp into a drag... Im kind of getting to the point where I just don't care anymore, and I can say this for certainty: It is not at all a game worth 4.99.
Wait for it to go on sale for .99
Maybe you were going for a total retro experience with the intent in saying that 90's controllers were awful, and therefore these controls should be awful. But I don't recall my NES, my SNES, my N64, my PS, or PS2 controlls being this awful.
In fact, I can honestly say, they weren't awful! They were great! This games controls are awful! The game itself is endearing and fun. Lots of enjoyable little gags and quirks that make it fun to play!
However, be prepared when going into a boss fight, you may be scratching your head wondering why your not jumping, or shooting a Hadoken, or anything. Its not you, its the game. Having played Capcoms Street Fighter games on iOs, and easily pulling off the same moves (and not the one button press moves), it really isn't me ... it's you.
Id be quite upset if I had paid full price for this game and encountering the same controls issue. Please fix this -- its the only thing preventing this game from being a five star story!
Terrible Controls 1/5
This is the most disappointing game I have ever played. The game itself is fun and makes you want to keep playing, until you get to challenging minigames that you HAVE to beat in order to continue, and then you realize that this game has the absolute worst and most unresponsive controls of any other game out there. I would give it a lower score than 1 star if I could.
Iphone x support is lazy 1/5
Part of the text and controlls are under the notch on iphone x. Was this not tested at all? :(
Poor control and one level really kills flow 3/5
By skeptical tiger
I like the premise of the game and the different mediums it runs through but have a big issue with the controls.
I am at the point where I am in 3D land and need to hop over mushrooms. Sadly the developers didn’t consider why we don’t have instant kill platform levels anymore or at the very least ones without decent controls. If they gave you d pad to control the side scrolling parts like they do in other parts of the game it’d be fine, but the issue is there is run and super run speed with a hair of space in between rendering accurate platforming nes levels of difficult.
Also, as well intended as the references are in the game it starts to get a little old when it feels like something you’d see in kingdom hearts. Sadly, a lot of these references won’t hold up with time and it can really kill the atmosphere of the game for pushing the 4th wall a bit too much. It almost comes off as a terrible meme and your second party member acting as the straight man is one of the few redeeming values so far.
This game 5/5
Is amazing. Not nearly as hard and unplayable as the reviews said it was. Gameplay changes keep the game fresh throughout. Would definitely recommend to others
bad control method 玩法可以，但是操作手感极差 1/5
It’s 2019, I can’t really find another game as bad control logic as this game, even worse than the FC games last century. The character usually doesn’t react when I move it. The controller usually cannot be reached. And I must move the character to the middle or it can’t climb ladders.
Uncaught expection 5/5
By error fix pls
I love the game played hours and hours on pc , i recently jus bought this for iphone and it will randomly give me this error and will not allow to dismiss all or continue and makes me exit which i lose progress. I really hope this can be fixed.
Games good but.. 3/5
By John effing doe
Controls are very difficult to use. Jumping at the right time is really frustrating.
I love it! 5/5
By dylan maio
I love this game. It is just like Zelda.
Great game but some flaws 4/5
It has been a great game so far and plays great with a controller. There is only one thing that irritates me from making this a 5 star is the constant crashing of the app. I am playing this on a iPad 11 in so it’s not that what I am playing on cannot handle it but far from it.
Needs more user testing 3/5
I loved Evoland 1 and this seems to have potential, but they clear skipped testing this game with normal peopl, or its just not as comparable with iPhone X. Game controls are a struggle bus, regularly misses button presses and directional controls are a little drunk. Frequently get impassable code exception causing me to restart the app and hoping it’ll make it through that spot the next time.
Glitch Switching Characters 1/5
I am an hour into the game which is great so far. I am in the underwater part and I’m unable to switch characters to the demon to break the block. Everywhere it says the tab button for a keyboard but I don’t have that option
Cannot save games on Apple TV. 1/5
By A simple fix, please
After purchasing this game for our Apple TV 4, my kids and I played for about 30 - 40 minutes, saved two games, and then quit. When we opened the application the next day to continue our adventures, we saw that both games had been erased!
As a test, we started up a new game, saved it, proceeded past the first checkpoint and then exited to the game menu. We saw that the saved game was present in the menu. Next we quit to the Apple TV home screen and immediately reopened the game. The saved file had again disappeared.
I performed one more test later that evening, deliberately stepping on every glowing checkpoint/save game spot until reaching the arena challenges. Exiting to the game menu showed the saved file and allowed me to return to the story where I left off. However, quitting to the Apple TV home screen once again deleted the saved game.
EL2 boasts 20 hours of gameplay, but I am sure that this does not mean playing for 20 consecutive hours. I e-mailed the developers and was told that they are currently working on a fix. However the last EL2 update was in Aug 2018, so this issue has persisted for 7 months.
Evoland 2 1/5
Terrible. Game play isn’t smooth. A lot of running around to find the answers to the next level.👎🏻👎🏻
Abysmal Controls Ruin the game 1/5
The controls on all iOS versions if this game are abysmal. I am using a 2018 iPad Pro, and the game stutters every few frames, causing instant death on some levels. The controls are clunky and "stick" making some levels virtually impossible to beat. Great game ruined by bad controls. 99 cents worth of frustration.
Right off the back can we give support for the Whole iPhone X line of devices. Lol I can't even see what there really saying in the beginning of the game.. Still wanna try but can you just at support please
Needs save state 1/5
Save points do not work on mobile games. This game needs save and resume. Right now it’s broken and unplayable. Hope they fix it in the future
Best game ever 5/5
I put over 24 hours into this game and it was awesome but when I finally got 100 percent it seemed boring it’s a game you can kinda play once but one time was enough for the whole experience so if you like exploring, fun battles, and a few rage quit moments this game is for you
