Himno 

 

On paper Himno sounds like an awesome game that would excel here with Family Friendly Gaming. Himno is a non-violent, no death platformer. Awesome right?!? I will explain more about where Himno failed for me. We can use wall-jumps, slides, and dashes to reach new heights in the randomly generated maps. That is the big one right there – the random generation.

The water sounds in Himno are exceptional. The music is on the eerie side though. We start at water level and must climb up. I loved seeing ladders in Himno. For some reason we cannot climb these ladders though. Why is that? I had to wall-jump around the ladder instead of climb up them. That frustrated me a lot in Himno. Why even have a ladder if we can’t use it?

The loading time in Himno was longer than most indie games. The download size to Himno is 127 megs so very manageable. The random generation of Himno became my complete bane. Himno would randomly generate levels I could not go anywhere. So I had to fall into the water and start over. Random level generation can be cool as long as it is still playable.

I found Himno to be dark visually and hard to figure out where to go. Some of that is the random generation. Other times I did not understand where the game wanted me to go. Up is the only choice I could figure out. Too often I did not get very far because of the random generation.

We collect some items in Himno. My character leveled up a few times. I am not sure what I was collecting due to the dark indie graphics that fit somewhere between 8-bit and 16-bit. I did not have fun playing Himno. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS Vita. We only used the code for the Nintendo Switch.
