Ratings and Reviews
It only takes about five minutes to realise just how strange Severed is. But to rescue your family, you’re going to have to dive right in, mastering the excellent swipe-based combat, travelling through a magical realm filled with danger, and—yeah—collecting some severed limbs. Like we said, it’s a little weird. But this Apple Design Award winner is also gorgeous, atmospheric and totally memorable.
Beautiful with Good Gameplay
Set in a wonderful, vivid dark-fantasy world. Combat is fairly intuitive, unique and fun. Although progression through the world seems very non-linear, the actual progression is quite strict: as you play you unlock new abilities that allow access to new areas, however you can only unlock these abilities in a specific order. Once you’ve found every secret, there’s no incentive for replaying the game.
All in all, a beautiful game that’s definitely worth picking up.
Great game. Love the story and gameplay, great art style and I like enemy variations and the need to have to fight many at once. Great methods of introducing enemy concepts. 9/10 a few audio bugs I can’t hear the audio often but sometimes it randomly starts playing. Other than that I would love to see more like this!!
