In “Tunic”, players take on the role of a little fox who finds himself in a game world characterized by forests and caves. Since the fox does not speak, and all the signs are provided with an unreadable secret script, you have to find out a lot of things on your own first. A lot of things are not fully explained at the beginning – but that’s what makes the game.
To explore the game world, curiosity is needed above all. Instead of predetermined paths, there are only a few clues, much of which is only possible with unlockable weapons. There is also a large number of opponents in the way, which must be completed in quick battles. Many things, such as their strengths and weaknesses, are revealed by the pages of a manual, which are scattered throughout the game world.
Although “Tunic” seems cute at first glance, one should not underestimate the level of difficulty. The tricky puzzles also put the brains of experienced gamblers to the test, and for the opponents’ own tricks, it is not always enough just to press the buttons constantly. Since the fox can not take much with stronger opponents, you often have to start from the beginning.
With its mysterious world, “Tunic” has become a real hit. Critics describe the game as a look into old, simpler times, which, despite simple graphics, convinces above all with the gameplay. Those who like to adapt to the challenges will be delighted with “Tunic”.
