Sail the seas of adventure in Oceanhorn for iOS

Looks like it drew a lot of inspiration from Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Not that that's a bad thing.

I heard someone say the same thing... Just minus the princess. Can't wait to get home and grab this title.

My son is a major Zelda fan, he recently rebought some older DS titles that he completed years ago because he wanted to play them again. I have to show him this trailer. I've told him there are some similar titles for his iOS device. This one shows that Nintendo really has some competition.

This is totally at the top of my wishlist. I have a whole slew of games on multiple platforms (PS3, PS4, 3DS, iOS) in my library to get through first though. #firstworldproblems

I'll be giving this title a run because of the "Windwaker" nostalgia for sure, but when I saw that the score was composed by Nobuo Uematsu... I was sold for sure!
... Now where can I squeeze this between Starcraft II and HearthStone...

Game is very intriguing but the price is off putting. This looks to be infinity blade quality. Maybe if the price comes down I'll check it out. Will imore do a review?

Put some time into it tonight. Definite Zelda nostalgia here. Absolutely worth the price tag, even if you weren't into Zelda. High polish in animation, music, writing and UI. Graphically I wouldn't put it side by side with Infinity Blade, since Oceanhorn is meant to be cartoony - a look which I think ages more gracefully than photorealism anyway. Happy to answer any questions!

Looks awesome. Definitely have my eyes on this one. Any idea how long it takes to finish the game?
