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 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.
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!
On the surface, Anodyne looks a lot like the older Zelda games.
A botched port doesn't change the fact that Anodyne is worth a shot, with it being a really well done surrealist title.
