Order of the Thorne: The King’s Challenge review

The Good:
  • A colorful pixel art game that is always great to look at
  • Trades on nearly every meaningful nostalgia convention perfectly
  • Lute mechanic is a fun addition
The Bad:
  • Narrator casting is inconsistent with tone
  • Writing is bland with minimal reliance on humor
  • Such a retro throwback that its appeal will likely be limited

Our Verdict:

With its hand-painted 320x200 backgrounds, modest pacing and exploration focus, The King’s Challenge is a solid Golden Age-style fairy tale adventure that stumbles only in its overly serious tone.
