Evoland Legendary Edition is a compilation of two original games marrying RPG, action and adventures game mechanics. The titles were developmed by the independent studio Shiro Games, which also created the warmly-received Northgard. While the idea for the first Evoland was born during the Ludum Dare 24 game jam, the second part of the series was created from the beginning as a commercial product.

Mechanics

Both items included in Evoland Legendary Edition are based on a similar formula, showing the evolution of video games, while at the same time paying tribute to iconic titles through a variety of references. At the beginning of the game, the games offer simple, two-dimensional graphics, and the player character has a very limited range of moves.

However, as we progress, we are gaining improvements that affect both the audiovisual sphere and mechanics. Among them there are, for example, puzzles, progressively complex combat system (apart from real-time battles we have to take part in turn-based combat, and Evoland 2 also adds duels pulled straight from fighting games) or even more diverse adversaries (led by powerful bosses).

Technical aspects

As mentioned above, the gameplay in Evoland Legendary Edition evolves in front of the player's eyes. Initially we are dealing with a monochromatic pixel art, but with time the whole thing gains details, eventually sporting looks from PlayStation 2 era. Along with the changing visuals, the game gainss more and more complex sound layer.
