Familiar, lightweight but almost impossible to dislike, this is an effortlessly enjoyable action RPG.
A mixture of roguelike and Zelda: A Link To The Past that looks and plays extremely well, but has its potential cut short by an unwelcome time limit.
The Swords of Ditto's repetitive nature grinds after a few playthroughs, but it's a journey worth taking at least a few times
This compact action-RPG will charm you for days on end.
The Swords of Ditto is charming, humorous, and fun to play. It's not the biggest game, but its generation-crossing story makes you feel like you're a part of its world's history. Even though it relies heavily on randomized components, the cartoon-like presentation and baked-in charm make every single screen seem as though it's part of a cohesive, authored map. The Swords of Ditto might not be the most epic adventure of all time, but there's little denying that it's one of the cutest.
The Sword of Ditto is a good looking, adorable and funny game that is held back a little bit by its time limit. I would love to explore the island and its quirky sense of humour at my own pace, but the constant ticking clock makes it feel like you're being rushed through the environment. It's fun and worth playing if you don't mind time being a factor.
Although the main premise of The Swords of Ditto is appealing when we spend a few hours in it it's feels a little bit tedious.

Swords of Ditto is a very stylish mashup of 2D Zelda and roguelikes, in which you will not see everything it has to offer within the first playthrough. Its time limit is too constricting in the first few hours however, which might put a lot of people off an otherwise fun adventure.
As it is, it's a lovely, fun game that too frequently reminds me of its mistakes. And despite that, I want to keep playing. Which is probably rather important.
The Swords of Ditto is pleasantly addictive and will certainly provide hours of entertainment and some chuckles heads and there.
The art alone is worth checking Swords of Ditto out.
Swords of Ditto is a unique take on a tried and true formula. What it brings is interesting, even if it is a bit flawed. I really had a good time after coming to grips with its systems. I definitely recommend it to those who enjoy the Zelda loop. This game's colorful world and charming aesthetic makeup for its shortcomings.
The Swords of Ditto is a devilish little Roguelite disguised as a cartoony adventure with all of the trappings of what Zelda fans have grown up to enjoy.
The Swords of Ditto is a beautifully designed clone of classic adventures with a single life concept and procedurally generated world - from objectives to items and dungeons.

The Swords of Ditto is a great little indie adventure, perfect for quick stints of surprisingly tense gameplay. Although some slight technical issues are a bit of a pain, they're not enough to detract from what is otherwise a delightfully charming experience. Tight and tidy, this is an addictive time sink that's well worth a look -- especially if you bring someone along for the ride.
With so much to see and do, Swords of Ditto is a heart-warming adventure I simply can't get enough of.
Vibrant, ridiculous, endearing and just plain enjoyable to play, The Swords of Ditto is an absolute pleasure to tuck into. It doesn't always marry its creative streak to its combat particularly well, but it doesn't prevent this adorably gorgeous action RPG from winning hearts and minds.
The Swords of Ditto is not an excellent game. It’s better than alright but not great. The fact that it’s good lies in its charm and writing, not its boring combat and cumbersome design. If you’re a fan of roguelites, give it a spin. Just make sure you bring a companion along for the ride.
For those of you looking for something to fill the void while you wait for the Link’s Awakening remake later this year, The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse is a solid recommendation. It isn’t perfect, but this is a charming, deep, and entertaining roguelike adventure, and it’s a lot more than meets the eye.
Cuddly rogue-like RPG, which opens with interesting ideas, but ultimately turns out to be a dreary Grind festival.
