OverviewOverview

Greak: Memories of Azur is running, jumping and sword fighting game. You play in a hand-animated world as three siblings: Greak, Adara and Raydel who travel through the lands of Azur. It's unusual because you switch control between each of them to use their unique abilities to escape the Urlag invasion.

The game takes its name from Greak the main character. He's the smallest brother of three. You are soon thrust into the journey to reunite him with his brother and sister (and then escape by building an airship).

To start you need to find each sibling so they can join the adventure and help you progress. Together you then work through the battles and puzzles of the side-on world. Discover new areas and fight a wide range of enemies as you explore to collect the missing pieces of an Airship through an interconnected world.

The hand-drawn play is complemented with cinematic cartoon clips to tell the wider story. The result is a unique and captivating story about siblings, home and surviving dark times. It's topped off with a live orchestra soundtrack.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for Fear, Violence. This game contains mild and unrealistic violence between the player's human-like characters and various fantasy enemies. When characters are hit, they flash and flinch, with damage indicated by numbers. When human-like characters are defeated, they fall to the ground with a sigh. When enemy characters are defeated, they dissolve into droplets or fall to the ground and fade away. There is no sight of injuries. Some of the game's settings are a little dark and sinister. The enemies, especially the boss characters, may also be a little scary for younger children. Players are able to shoot down birds with a bow and arrow, which then disappear in a puff of feathers.

Skill Rating

10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game.

AccessibilityAccessibility

There's no specific accessibility for difficulty, but you can opt to make the characters you are not controlling invulnerable.

Although the game doesn't put you on the clock, to collect the optional relics you do need to collect crystals in a certain time.

There's an accessibility option to increase text size substantially, as well as Head Up Display elements.

Gamepad controls are one stick but you do need to use the Direction Pad to switch characters in addition to the other buttons.

Although the game is sometimes dark, because the characters glow they are always visible and clear. Interactive items and people are signified by a highlighted icon when you approach. There are occasional full white screens, but these do not flash.
