Tunic for PC is a fantasy action-adventure game developed by Andrew Shouldice.
We play as an anthrophoid fox who explores a fantasyland full of monsters and treasures. The plot is told mostly through pictures and events because most of the in-game lines are written in a Sanskrit-inspired language of the game’s world, which we simply cannot understand. Once in a while though, we will find some English words that work as clues.
Tunic for PC is an action adventure game inspired by 8- and 16- bit The Legend of Zelda games and their mechanics. As we play, we explore partially open, big maps, gather items, and fight with the encountered enemies, among which we will find powerdul bosses.
Gameplay focuses mostly on combat and we will encounter puzzles and riddles only every once in a while. To make combat more exciting, an elaborate arcade combat system was implemented in the game that allows us to do various attacks and evades. A stamina bar gives the game a tactical element (we use stamina for attacks and player-activated techniques).
Gathering items plays an important role in the game. Secret Legend lacks any traditional RPG elements like character stats. To progress our hero, we have to equip him with more and more powerful items and weapons.
Tunic for PC uses Unity engine and has eye-pleasing, 3D visuals. We observe the action form an isometric perspective.
