The Swords of Ditto
Top Critic Average
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.
