Oceanhorn is an adventure game series that brings Zelda-style exploration, battling and dungeon-solving to non-Nintendo platforms. You play as a boy on a quest to find his lost father and defeat the living fortress, Oceanhorn. You explore dungeons, fight monsters with various weapons, throw pots and cut bushes to find hidden coins or hearts.
  • Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted (2013) draws inspiration from a combination of older top-down Zelda games like A Link to the Past and sailing sections from The Wind Waker. This version is available on iOS, Microsoft Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita, Android, Nintendo Switch
  • Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm (2019) draws inspiration from larger 3D Zelda games. It's set a thousand years before the first game. You play a young Knight fighting the Warlock Mesmeroth who has returned. It has a role-play aspect where you become more proficient by using the different weapons and tools in the world. You can also earn two companion characters to fight with you. This version is only available via Apple Arcade.

Oceanhorn: Golden Update (2020) adds new dungeons, enhanced visuals and a new Criminal Hunt quest. It also adds an expanded ending connecting back to the first game. This is free (and only available) with Apple Arcade.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted is rated PEGI 7 because it features violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures. The game features a lot of fantasy characters (blobs, skeletons, orcs, etc.). When these enemies are defeated, they disappear and leave items behind that your character can collect. There are no injuries shown during battle, just a diminishing health bar. When your own character (human) is hit, he flinches back. No apparent harm is done. When he is defeated, he falls on the floor to be resurrected at a save point. Again, without any injuries.

The bosses in the game can be scary. There are a variety of large monsters that feature classic fearful elements. A plant monster with many eyes and rows of razor teeth, a cursed aquatic king and a dark knight with a skull-face.

Skill Rating

7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. This is easier than a full 3D adventure. You still need care and timing over attacks. Younger players need the resilience to keep trying when they seem to be stuck. Laterally thinking is useful for some puzzles.
