I should note that the (by Analgesic Productions) bit may be inaccurate but I went with what I found on the website.

Here's a link to the Steam portal of Anodyne for reference; it's regularly $9.99 there so seems like a good deal at $3.99 for iOS:

A classic Zelda-type game where you beat up monsters with a broom? IM IN!

Abstract themed landscapes? Dungeons in the human Young's subconscious? Yes! This might be the closest thing to iOS Earthbound yet.

Is that a homage to the work of psychoanalysit Carl Jung (Jung renamed as Young) who worked with the subconscious or am I overthinking things? Maybe we'll see some deliberate embedded Freudian imagery and symbology secondary to the gameplay.

It seems like there's a lot of surreal almost psychadelic depth to Anodyne.

Yup the pricing on this platform is very sweet..Though I hope they get enough attention and sales because this is quite a week of releases,which pretty much rivals the KOTOR week..
