Clan O'Connell And The Crown Of The Stag
Clan O'Conall and the Crown of the Stag is a very solid, Celtic-flavoured, action-plaform/puzzler that could be so much more with a little more effort. Everything, from the platforming, puzzle-solving, and fighting, to the three unique heroes that players will have to constantly swap between are very good, but the experience leans a bit too much towards casual-friendly territory. Not a piece of cake, but solutions to each and every problem are way too obvious, and as a result the whole adventure soon loses its immersion factor. A good game, sure, just not a strong recommendation.
I was expecting to get a fun yet mediocre game that would be an enjoyable way to pass the time for a coupe of hours. However, what I got was a charming, addicting, tightly controlled experience with some lovable characters in a fantastic setting. It’s not the most punishing puzzle/platformer out there, so veterans and more casual gamers alike can enjoy themselves in this Celtic adventure.
Three characters with their own abilities to handle alternately, skill, platforms, action, adventure HIBERNIA! Clan O'Conall is fun, it's pretty, and it's 8-10 hours enjoyable. Nice work in classic 2D for an adventure of reflexes and calculation. And from pummeling undesirables who want our kingdom too.

Clan O'Conall and the Crown of the Stag is a platforming fan's dream and doesn't attempt to be more than it is.
It’s fun, it’s bright, it’s beautiful, it doesn’t take itself too seriously and its constantly changing mechanics keep it from being repetitive. It’s easy to see this game as superficial due to its graphics and light-hearted humour. However, so many of the characters, bosses and environments have been painstakingly researched to make sure it connects with Celtic mythology.
The playable characters in Clan O'Connell and the Crown of the Stag are individually unique and the players must have some reflexes that support the knowledge of what each character is capable of. Although the entire run may feel a bit short, you would give yourself some credit for being able to complete the game with a balanced use of all the playable casts played while switching them in real time. You may feel that there is a lack of ‘new game plus’ or extra content after clearing it for the first time.
