Anodyne is indeed reminiscent of 2D Zelda titles, but it manages to not be bound by comparisons as it offers a fresh and welcome take on this style of game.

Anodyne mixes solid old-school dungeon crawling with a delightfully weird and warped narrative set in a fever dreamscape full of bizarre secrets and surprises.

8 / 10

Anodyne is a great throwback to the adventure games we used to play back in the day on our Game Boy, and I liked the way we could explore as we played, and that the game doesn't take itself too seriously. I definitively recommend this game to players looking for adventure games on PlayStation 4!

Anodyne is a fun minimalist bite-sized 16-bit infused action-adventure that pays homage to the beloved The Legend of Zelda series while doing its own thing. You can probably finish this one in a handful of hours, and you'll be back for more if you want to get all trophies to add a new Platinum trophy to your collection.
