Sometimes there is a game that you expect to be a decent game. You think it will be good for a while and like it and move on. When you finally play that game however, you are shocked how well it triggers nostalgia for classic games in you, while simultaneously amazing you with new ideas.  Chronicles of Teddy: Harmony of Exidus is one of those major surprises, and one I am happy to have found.

The game almost immediately made me think of classics such as Zelda 2 ( my all time favourite NES game and favourite Zelda game) and it did that in a good way. It brought the classic feel back but in a way that felt fresh and new to me. The pixel art was nothing short of amazing and the game is one of the most breathtaking I have seen ever seen done in that style.

The gameplay is simple yet complex but more importantly, it does not hold your hand at all. The game lets you learn as you go and you will find yourself constantly finding new things to do. The game gives you a ton of questions, and it is up to you to find the answers. The best part about that? You will have an awesome time doing that. The game is hard but not insanely frustrating. The challenge is the exact right level and is perfectly balanced for both veterans of gaming and new gamers wanting to try this kind of game for the first time.

I often here that games that trigger nostalgia in the player are a bad thing, but I have to disagree. Chronicles of Teddy: Harmony of Exidus triggers nostalgia, at least for me, but it adds its own way of doing things, such as a system where you have to collect runes to communicate with NPCs and handling combat in an interesting way. The items you will get, are fun to use and really make the experience better. This type of game may trigger nostalgia in you, but its what the game itself has to offer you that you will remember the most.

I have to recommend this game and give it my highest approval!
