The controls are tight and the gameplay is outstanding, I never found myself getting bored or frustrated, and was always eager to return to Geodia and gather more Sparklite and defeat the countless enemies populating the areas.
You have a range of weapons and items at your disposal, and as mentioned earlier this channels the gameplay and feel of early Zelda titles. You have your basic attack and dodge available from the outset, but you are also able to gather ‘widgets’ during your adventure, with these providing many benefits from restoring health and energy, to providing light in dark environments, through to buffing your strength or defence for a short amount of time.
There are also ‘Founders vaults’ located around the map that provide you with schematics to build other sub-weapons such as a crossbow and even a remote control blimp that can be controlled and detonated remotely. These vaults act as an introduction and tutorial on the associated gadget before providing you with the related schematic, which must then be taken back to the Refuge to be constructed for use in Geodia.
