The Alone Sword is a Zelda-lite set underwater

0

Happy weekend, everyone! If you've got a few minutes to kill, why not give The Alone Sword a spin?

The Alone Sword is exactly as I described in the header -- a Zelda-lite set underwater. You take control of a sea star creature (which heavily resembles an Octorok) as he / she / it swims around looking for hidden keys and fighting aquatic bosses. The controls are not what you'd expect from a typical Zelda clone. Underwater traversal leaves you at the whim of forward momentum, sliding around as though running on ice. Your sword points opposite your direction of movement, and attacking will swing it 180 degrees, propelling you in reverse. It sounds odd and difficult to get the hang of, but it makes sense considering your liquid environment.

It's a decent time-waster that shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to clear. There's a pretentious back story about alien visitors creating a virtual memorial based on the dreams of the planet's departed souls, or something or other. Whatevs, man. It's about a starfish that kills ocean life with a cheap sword made from wooden garden posts. That's all you need to know.
