But in the end, I’m actually left wondering less about how I’d feel about Ary if it ran better and more what sort of heights Exiin could have reached with more time spent in polishing and more budget allocated to that end. Niet goed genoeg. Low-resolution textures and a simplistic art-style is one thing, but screen-tearing and a consistently choppy framerate just shouldn’t be an issue for a game that is likely capable of running on much less powerful hardware than my OG PS4 with the right optimization. Truth be told, it was only minutes into my playthrough that I suspected Ary’s lack of polish would be a key takeaway. Ary and Secret of the Seasons has long been on my radar as a light-hearted gameplay experience that might help lift the spirits, so no surprises that I leaped at the opportunity to review it. But Ary’s big trump card –the unique gameplay mechanic that sets it apart and ties into its story premise–, is her ability to change the seasons.

Everything You Need to Know, Ary and the Secret of the Seasons Review – A Valiant Effort. Dynamic environments. Oh zeker vond ik wel een gekopieerde trap die niet bepaald aansloot op de treden die er dwars op stonden, maar dat stoort me niet echt. Ary heeft het hart op de goede plek, maar doet teveel fout met een lege wereld, saaie combat en technische problemen. Ary is trapped in a man’s world and a scared one at that. by Pim, Sel 01/09/2020 0 commentaar. Ary and the Secret of Season is a throwback love letter to games like Zelda because it incorporates many thematic elements the Nintendo series would end up popularizing in other games. Qua inhoud, qua wereld, qua combat en qua technische uitvoering. Fun puzzles Cool season-changing mechanic Wonderful story book aesthetic and voice work Exiin’s only previous game credit is a mobile puzzler called AfterLoop, and yet here it’s attempted a much grander project, from the particulars of all its gameplay systems to the fully voice acted (and much better animated) story-driven cutscenes. You'd be mistaken. There’s nothing like a children’s adventure story to warm the cockles, and as we approach the end of a rather miserable year I’ve found myself wanting for exactly that. Dit alles staat nog los van de technische issues, zoals pop-in, vastzitten in de omgeving en complete resets.
