Those frustrated that Nintendo still stubbornly refuses to release an official Legend of Zelda game for iOS should pluck-up, because the next best thing is here. Heavily inspired by one of the best Zelda games, The Wind Waker, a console-quality Zelda like has just hit the Apple Store called Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas. And this is a game you want to get.
Created exclusively for iOS devices and published by FDG Entertainment, Oceanhorm allows you to sail uncharted seas, discover islands brimming with monsters, explore dungeons, upgrade your character and collect items, all while trying to defeat the game’s Gannon-like big bad, Oceanhorn.
Here’s the game synopsis:
You wake up and find a letter from your father. He is gone …
The only lead is his old notebook and a mysterious necklace. What happened?
Explore the islands of Uncharted Seas, a world filled with many dangers, puzzles and secrets. Fight monsters, learn to use magic and discover ancient treasures which will help you on your quest. Use all your wits and skill to unravel the mysteries of ancient kingdom Arcadia and sea monster Oceanhorn.
Oceanhorn combines captivating storytelling, breathtaking 3D visuals and exciting gameplay into one massive action adventure experience you will never forget.
Oceanhorn features 10 hours of gameplay, and music from legendary composers Nobuo Uematsu and Kenji Ito. It also supports, intriguingly, iOS 7 controllers. You need an iPhone 4S or iPad 2 and higher. You can download Oceanhorn now for just $8.99.
