Critic Reviews for OneShot

You can combine certain items through Niko’s inventory to solve certain puzzles, and some of these combinations suffer from the curse of being obvious to the developer but not at all to the player.

OneShot makes players question the reality that surrounds them.

While it has gorgeous art and plenty of cute moments, OneShot fails to deliver a truly memorable experience and left me wanting much more.

Oneshot won’t likely have you screaming for its approval as a ‘revolutionary game’, but it’ll almost certainly surprise you. And though it achieves a similarly disquieting tone, the meta approach to puzzle-solving and self-aware narrative validate Oneshot as a distinctive, sympathetic adventure that consistently matches its tone with (though not wholly original) still quite novel mechanics.

It’s short, but worth every second of your time. This version is somewhat more forgiving than the original, much to my disappointment, but the visuals, atmosphere and narrative come together to create a particularly impressive experience.

There's very little that can actually be said about how brilliant OneShot is. Be sure to stay well away from streams or a YouTube playthrough before getting the opportunity to experience it. Just expect to be treated to a thoroughly wonderful tale. Definitely consider checking it out.

Taking on the role of Niiko's guardian in this dangerous world is truly a rewarding experience.

An emotional game with an intriguing world and interesting 'meta' features. OneShot is a great little adventure game, though perhaps a bit short and initially frustrating.
