IMG Reviews OIO
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Uncanny Games' OIO. Based on concepts from mythology and fairy tales, the game puts players in the role of a small wooden man awakened from petrified sleep to find himself in a strange universe and his companions petrified.
Here's an excerpt:
The graphics were amazing! For such a simple platformer OIO does not fail to impress. The artistic indie title vibe really fits well with the whole game. It doesnít feel over the top and doesnít sacrifice other elements. With fine details in the puddles and the great backdrop of the story happening around you, OIO shows great ďall roundĒ performance. The menu system itself is very handsome and easy to use. Also, with the instructions for controls projected on the floor, I canít imagine anyone struggling to work out how to play the game.Check out the full review at the IMG page linked below.
IMG Review: OIO
Like the graphics the sound quality is superb. The sound effects were spot on. Everything made sense and there was no real disruption of the music going from level to level, just an ease into each scenario. The soundtrack itself was nothing short of fantastic as well. The menu gave a sort of electronic vibe, which was a little odd at first, but when I first started a new game it subtly changed into a piano ballad for the first cut scene, then into a combination of xylophones and water droplets. I canít think of any other game which switches from so many genres so easily without missing a beat. Every song feels real and as if it is meant to be there. Nothing feels disjointed or obscure. It's a really well done sound track.
