Ittle Dew is an RPG with a strong puzzle influence, made by Ludosity. Play as Ittle, and her friend Tipsy, as you crash land on to this seemingly remote island. Go through the island and take all that you can until you are able to build a raft and go on to your next adventure.
The graphics in this game are very unique. Everything has a hand-drawn and cartoon look and feel, and the way the game flows it feels like it is an animation of some sort. There are no hiccups in animation and everything moves very smoothly, including transitions from one part of the map to the other. Frame rate never slows down either, and the speech scenes are quite pleasing to the eye, and almost everything is interactive. Ittle dew has a highly polished look to it.
The music in the game has a mix of mystery and adventure, as any game of this type should. Going through dungeons and caves you are given a mysterious tune, while on the overworld you are given a more upbeat, adventure-like tune. Boss battles also have their own set of music, also quite catchy and fun to listen to, feeling like you are in a boss battle. The sound effects are cute to listen to. Killing the enemies make a “pop” sort of noise, making it humorous to listen to. The weapon swinging special effects all have their own distinct sound as well. Giving the game quite a refreshing experience.
The game is quite the adventure. Even though it is short, it still leaves a lot to do. From going through all the dungeons, to collecting all the cards, even going through the master dungeon. The dialogue between Ittle and Tipsy, and various other characters, are also fun to read as they are funny and meant to make fun of other video games in the same genre. You will have yourself laughing at some of the jokes made in this game. There is a ton of exploration involved and this, as well as the collection of cards, makes for a very fun game that encourages you to complete it all.
Ittle Dew is one of those games where you think it is another long RPG, but turn to be pleasantly surprised when you play it and see that it is an RPG, but with flare. The toon-like graphics and the up-beat music help with this flare, but what sets it apart is the amount of humour and the head-scratching puzzles involved. While this is not a long game by any means (roughly 6 – 8 hours) it is certainly worth the purchase for any gamer looking for a fun, light-hearted adventure.
