Terazone is a very interesting adventure game based upon a variety of stages, each taking heavy influence from 7 different games, these being KINOKO & GAL, World of Goo, Oddworld, Metal Gear, Ib, A Link to the Past and Tower of Heaven. This makes for a very varied experience that ends up hitting the mark the majority of the time.

You're free to tackle these stages in any order you wish, as they're scattered throughout a little hub with visuals reminiscent of Go Across the Rainbow. Important to note this game is incomplete, and there are a couple segments unreachable, blocked with demo blocks. Each stage has a difficulty rating out of 5 stars and often features very different gameplay from the last. To delve into some specifics, I'll go into spoiler territory.

The first stage I stumbled into was the KINOKO & GAL stage, also the one rated the highest. I felt this was by far the weakest point of the game, with it being a NES-sort-of style game featuring enemies, traps and long'ish segments. Some parts got very tedious to go through and it was also the longest stage by far, although perhaps down to the difficulty and troubles I had. The other stages lifted my spirits a lot though. World of Goo is a really fun stylistic stage albeit lacking the classic Goo physics, Oddworld a classic homage to the Abe games with some fun references and the Ib stage being quite a spooky little adventure reminiscent of The Cardinal House. I wasn't overly fond of some design choices in the Link to the Past stage, mixed with my poor map-memorization skills, but there's definitely something for everyone in here.

After beating all 7 stages, you're left to just wander the hub and reflect on your journey. There's no clear screen or real GG to speak of, so whichever portal you go in last, make sure to cherish it's ending well. I actually tried savehacking past the demo blocks to investigate the out-of-reach portals. One just leads to the KINOKO & GAL stage and the other leads to what seems to have been planned for a Sherlock Holmes stage, although after a brief intro it just cuts to a broken colour screen. It'll be interesting to see if this ever gets updated, although almost 2 years on now I'm not so sure.

Definitely worth a play. The huge amount of variety will guarantee you'll find a stage or two that you'll love. IF you're unsure, I'd actually maybe recommend just playing the stages that seem most appealing to you (you can leave stages with BACKSPACE), and then just considering the rest if you feel like getting that clear bonus. But yeah, a pretty solid adventure game for sure.

This game could've been amazing, but there are two things holding it back: It's unfinished, for one, but most importantly some of the stages are just outwardly not fun. I really wanted to enjoy all of this game but it feels so frustrating sometimes. For it's effort and creativity I'm still ranking it somewhat high though. I definitely enjoyed some of the stages, but KINOKO & GAL and Oddworld were just absolutely not for me, the long saves where messing up meant death were just so annoying.

That being said, the good segments are just so high rate I can't keep this a fully negative review. Some of the things in the game are genuinely great! so, I would recommend trying out a few of the worlds. If you like them, stick with them. If you don't, back out.
