About The Game
Journey through a magical land teeming with mysteries to unravel. Baldo: the Guardian Owls is full of challenging puzzles to solve and intricate dungeons to explore. Traverse this captivating open world as Baldo, and meet a host of quirky and unforgettable characters, as you struggle to decipher the cryptic prophecy, and thwart destiny. From delightful whimsy to thrilling adventure, discover new towns and their distinctive inhabitants, fight ferocious foes, locate hidden temples, and collect objects both magical and mundane to obtain powerful new weapons, or to help unveil the myriad secrets of this strange land. This game is made by two people over the course of 12+ years, and this fact has good and bad side-effects. On the plus side, the map is large, with varied side quests and secrets, and it would easily take you 25+ hours to finish the game. The art style is amazing and yes, it takes inspiration form Studio Ghibli. The devs have executed this pretty well. This game will scratch that Zelda itch you have as it borrows mechanics from it. There’s shrine-like towers and temples, which increase your health or give access to new weapons. Some of these towers are hidden and are unlocked via story or puzzle elements.
On the bad side, the game is not thoroughly tested. If you play with a keyboard, you are going to get frustrated most of the time navigating the environment and fighting. There is noticeable input lag, as the animations have a hard finish and does not smoothly transition to other animations. Game-play wise, this game is brutal. You will die very often in the first dungeon itself. Most of these are induced by inputs not being registered. But a significant amount of deaths occur because of the enemies. Almost all enemies can kill you in 1-2 hits. Personally, I like the lack of tutorials in this genre of games, as exploring is encouraged. If you are looking to play this casually, you have to wait till the game is patched enough to remove input bugs, clipping issues, and overpowered enemies. The developers are working to patch the game on PC, while the switch already has the day one patch.
You see where the Game gets it’s inspiration. Ghibli and Zelda had without any doubt a big influence. Also the Core Gameplay reminds a lot of Zelda. But not the new ones. Its more like A Link to the Past and Links Awakening with some sprinkles Majoras Mask and one or two genes of Breath of Wild packed in a Ghibli like Artsytle. If you think it’s a easy game because of it’s Artstyle you are wrong. The difficulty of Fights and Riddles are definitly inspired by old Adventure Games of the 90s and early 00s. So don’t expect any Questmarker, Selfhealing and other mediocre Gameplay helps. As in the early Zelda Games you get a Quest and a vague direction where to start. Thats it. You have to find out for yourself what to do And like “Death’s Door” this Game is a no brainer if you grew up with Zelda or other adventure Games from the 90s and 00s. Yeah it’s hard, some riddles are a pain in the ass and normal enemy and boss fights let Dark Souls look like a kindergarten. And still we managed to 100% such Games without Let’s Plays, Youtube or walktroughs.
