A Journey Through a History of Video Games – ‘Evoland II’ Game Review

GameStop, Inc.

Evoland II: A Slight Case of Spacetime Continuum Disorder is every game you have ever played, all combined into one. Evoland II is an RPG created by Shiro Games where the graphics and gameplay evolve, or degrade, throughout the course of the story. Players will go from 8-bit sprites to full 3D battles all while encountering challenges that parody different genres.

Shiro Games is an independent video game company founded in 2012 and is based in Bordeaux. The first Evoland was came out in 2013 for PC and Mac for Steam and mobile devices. By taking in feedback from critics and users, Shiro Games was able to fully realize and surpass the original game’s vision with Evoland II. The sequel contains new gameplay styles and elements for a new world for returning players to enjoy, while still retaining the game’s familiar charm. Older players will be nostalgic reliving moments of gaming from their childhood, while younger games will get to see how far video game graphics have come since the first console.

Players will play as a hero who fights to protect the world he lives in from a dark future by learning about events in different timelines. Within the core of the hero’s world lies a secret that affects time itself, but can the hero change destiny or is it already set in stone? Luckily for the hero, he is not alone on his journey. Players will find new additions on their journey, each with their own special ability.

One of my favorite aspects of the game is that the controls are straightforward. Evoland II does not complicate the experience with too many buttons, despite the variety of gameplay within the game. This is amazing considering one set of controls can be used for Street Fighter-style matches, both 2D and 3D RPG, and puzzle games. Players can appreciate the story and gameplay without having to worry about complex controls.

Shiro Games is most well-known for their Evoland series and it is easy to see why. I personally had a love/hate relationship with the mammoth puzzle early on in the game. It was one of the obstacles that were so difficult for me as a child, but gave me so much joy when I beat it. Evoland II is available an amazing price at $19.99 and can be bought at www.evoland2.com.

Happy gaming.
