Action in Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm 2 for iOS and PC is presented from a third-person perspective. In terms of gameplay, Oceanhorn 2 is visibly inspired by the Legend of Zelda series. Many of the series’ characteristic elements, like the treasure-filled dungeons or equipment management, were implemented here. We will also explore more various areas than in the first game. We use a typical world map, like in many jRPGs, to move between them.
As we play, we will have to solve various logical riddles and puzzles and do various quests given to us by NPCs. Combat is arcade. In battle, we can use cold steel weapons and a pistol that fires magical bullets. As in many games of the genre, we will fight with powerful bosses.
When it comes to visuals, Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm 2 for iOS and PC is a big step foraward. The game has a beatufiul and colourful 3D world and a climatic soundtrack.
