Toy Odyssey: The Lost and Found Review and Giveaway!
Toy Odyssey: The Lost and Found is an action adventure platformer that’s been keeping me occupied while I’ve been ill with a cold. It’s a game from developers Hiker Games and is available on Steam and Xbox One. It’s also possibly coming to PS4 really soon.
I love indie games like this. It has had plenty of time and energy put into it and the outcome is a game that provides hours of gameplay. It looks great, the soundtrack is ambient and what you end up with is an addictive platformer with RPG and base defense elements thrown in. It works superbly. Watch my short review below to see the game in action or read on to hear my thoughts.
You play as Brand, an action figure who has an owner who is suffering from nightmares after moving to a new house. When looking for clues about the cause of the nightmares, you meet some ‘lost toys’. These are toys that have been taken over by the darkness in the house – perhaps the same darkness causing Felix to have disturbed sleep? The lost toys are your enemies and they are going to try to kill you as you explore the house at night. There are 300 enemies and seven main bosses, so you need to level up and get as strong as possible if you want to complete this game. The toys are varied in design, they have different methods of attack and different strengths. This helps to keep the game interesting and challenging. Watching the plastic toy soldiers parachute down super cool.
There are also good toys that are simply in the need of your help to return to the bedroom. They can provide you assistance in return too. The problem is, the bedroom isn’t as safe as you want it to be, it’s constantly under threat. So the platformer becomes a base defense game as you have to build and upgrade defenses to keep the baddies from raiding the room. In order to build defenses and strengthen your character, you have to find all sorts of items as you play through the game. This is where you really need to put the hours in. It’s a grind to upgrade and make new weapons so expect to put plenty of hours in.
The good news is that this is a game that is addictive. It can get frustrating at times but you want to progress. This isn’t an easy game by any means. You have to work hard to get through the quests and kill the bosses. I think this is what makes the game excellent value for money. You’re not going to fully complete it in a couple of hours.
