have crashed landed on earth in Ohno Odyssey. Families will play levels
to save these aliens so they can get home. Okay so maybe the storyline
is not the most original. ET comes to mind, and plenty of other iOS
physics puzzle games.
What helps Ohno Odyssey set itself apart from those games is this is a Nintendo 3DS hand held video game. The 3DS is not known for its physics puzzlers. Playing anything in 3D is better. Unless you can't keep your hands still and see the game in two distinctly and confusing images. Which I do all the time.
Ohno Odyssey will make your brain hurt. My pro tip for Family Friendly Gaming Nation is to try things. You may find a shortcut and not need every item. Or you might find a better path to success than what looks obvious. Or you might get lucky. I was the last one.
There are multiple worlds with distinctly different items. Ohno Odyssey provides a set amount of items for the player use to get the green alien round character to the little space ship. I might be totally out of bounds, but why can't the little space ship fly to the guy? Maybe try to catch him as he goes around the level. Ohno Odyssey has me thinking outside the crate err box.
Ohno Odyssey has thirty-five levels. A wee bit light on levels in my opinion. Plus there are few reasons to replay levels in Ohno Odyssey. Younger family members may become frustrated trying to solve some of the levels. There are a few areas where precise timing is needed. Some levels can be skipped.
The verdict is Ohno Odyssey is a solid albeit short physics puzzle game with cute looking characters. The presentation is good, and the tools are easy to use. Families will be able to quickly get into Ohno Odyssey. Sequels need additional levels.
