Emerald Shores is a challenging SNES-inspired platformer with a bunch of twists. Level up, take on rewarding sidequests, play unique minigames, unlock secret levels, raise a pet monster, fight an optional mega-leveled beast of a boss, and more! Travel across a huge world map as you find your way to the floating island of Emerald Shores and liberate it from the invading monsters. When you've completed the main storyline, take on Remix Mode, which rearranges each of the game's levels to be even more brutal.

Emerald Shores Critic Reviews

Emerald Shores wants to be a great experience, without the tools or understanding of what goes into that. Between imprecise controls, horrible hit boxes, predictable enemies and countless ways to abuse the mechanics, it's not a pleasurable experience. When you figure it does countless things to limit the replay value, either by removing your ability to gain experience or easily solved secrets, it really has nothing to offer. So, unless you're a big fan of bad games, there is really no reason to ever visit Emerald Shores.

Emerald Shores is a fun and short 2D indie platformer with a twist that sets it apart from other entries in the genre on PS4.

After all is said and done, Emerald Shores has potential but it's held back by tedious combat that drags down most of the experience.

Charming and definitely a fun representation of the developer’s trippy vision, but playing it reveals a number of flaws.
