"The game's sound design is the strongest facilitator of Anodyne's sense of dread and unease; the ambience and music give off an air of suspicion and danger, with ugly chords and disquieting, unnatural-sounding synthetic pings. It all adds up to a game where you're not sure who to trust, and you can't be sure of what's real."

- Penny Arcade Report

"[The developers] have made magic with this game, creating a world that I could be afraid to enter but never want to leave...The locations are vibrant and detailed, going to all manner of different places...[the music] can take the visual mood and shift it into territory that pixel art shouldn't be able to inhabit...this has Game of the Year written all over it."

Awesome to be able to play this classic on my phone

Loved this game on console. By the way, tou really gotta fix the screen orientation screwing up at random times. Happened during a boss battle and I died because I couldn’t see half the screen or buttons. Speaking of the buttons it would be nice to have some haptic feedback from our phone when the buttons are pressed so we can “feel” them without looking while we play the game

Great game, terrible controls.

I bought this game because I watched a friend playing it and it was a lot of fun. He didn't seem to have much of an issue with the controls so I bought it. However, after three days of owning this game I can't progress any further because of the clunky controls. I have a 4S, while my friend has a 5C, so perhaps the screen size is part of the control problem. Either way, they need an overhaul. The buttons need to be larger and the D-pad needs to have a larger contact patch or it should be replaced with a something else entirely.

That all being said, I very much want to play this game. It is witty, well-developed, and intriguing. I look forward to a future update that improves playability, because this game looks like a great amount of fun.

Great game, minor glitch with controls

First off this game is great. The entire game feels like a long lost Gameboy Color game. The level design is perfect, and I got the soundtrack before I even finished the game.

One minor complaint specific to the IOS version. This version adds a white dot that follows the main character around to assist in control, I believe it's logic is backwards. It's only supposed to appear when you have touch controls enabled, but it seems it's backwards. It's there on d-pad only and missing on touch-only.
