Video Game Tuesdays: Wandersong Review

Wandersong, a musical adventure game!
Reflink!

Wandersong is an indie game made by about a bard who goes on a mission to find the Earthsong and save the world. The Overseers are dying, which means that the universe is going to be destroyed and replaced by a new one. A rainbow-haired girl comes to our bard and tells him that if he finds the Earthsong, a song that each Overseer has a single piece of, that he will be able to save the entire world from chaos. Of course, our happy little bard agrees to go on this mission and he starts off to find the Overseers. Some Overseers are willing to give their song to the Bard, others do not. The bard will also need to make friends on his journey so that he can reach the Overseers and find the Earthsong, one of his first friends being a mean young witch named Miriam. Will the bard’s song work, or is he just on some meaningless quest?

I LOVED this game. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I ever finished a game. I really can’t I just don’t finish games that often. But I pushed through all the way to the end for this one, as I wanted to see what would really happen. I was so invested in the bard and Miriam’s story that I didn’t want it to end. There were so many touching moments, this story touches on a lot more issues rather than simply focusing on the normal story tropes. There wasn’t really any romance between the main characters, the story was a true journey of friendship and of people coming together as one. I appreciated this. It was funny too and I was literally laughing along with the characters!

The gameplay is a mixture of platforming and rhythm game sequences. There are no real challenges as everything can be redone if you make a mistake, and the rhythm games might not always sound “right” but you still get points for them. The focus of the game is the story, not the gameplay. If you are struggling, you are probably doing something wrong. Have fun with it, that is really the point of this game!

The game does have its glitches. I had to restart it 3-4 times in my entire 10-hour playtime just to get a few of the glitches to go away. I’m sure that the team is working hard to remove them, and I never lost progress because of them. Thank you autosave!

Overall, this was a beautiful little indie game. I am so happy that Humble Bundle gave me the chance to experience it for free with my purchase of the Monthly package, and I can’t wait to see what hidden gems come this month! 4 days more to go, I’m excited.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a casual puzzle game with unique and loveable characters and an amazing story. You can purchase this game from G2A for less than a dollar by clicking on the picture above!

Touch Online Review

Touch Online Game Review

Touch Online is a free worldwide rhythm game where you and your friends can come to a room together and dance to a variety of songs. There are different modes, including normal which is simply pressing the arrow keys for the right notes, to bubble, where you have to press the right notes and then press the spacebar at a specific time in order to get credit for the accurate beats.

The reason why I love this game is because it works on both high end and low end computers, and even in certain browsers. Also, it has a large variety from songs, although most of them are from new Kpop groups. The community in the game can be  a bit toxic at times, especially through creepy guys and girls because of the marriage system, but this is easily overlooked. Rooms can even be locked so only you and your selected friends can play, just in case someone is repeatedly harassing another player.

Although it is worldwide, most players do speak a little bit of English if not speaking it fluently, and it is very possible to make quite a few good friends. I play this game as often as I can, which is about 1-2 times per week, and I always seem to have a friend popping into my room to say hello. Although the game has been out for a few years, it is by no means dead, and it is one of the best free multiplayer rhythm games for PC right now. To me, it is the best multiplayer rhythm game on both PC and mobile, simply because of the variety of songs.

I would recommend this game to a person who enjoys rhythm games to play on the high levels, or for a person like me who is an amateur and simply enjoys to listen to Kpop music while playing a game with friends. There is something for everyone in this game, and I suggest that you check it out.
