Straight off the bat, a game like The Swords of Ditto that use cartoon effects and animation grab my attention. Always so vibrant and eye catching, you cannot help but click an image preview.

As you load into the beautiful looking The Swords of Ditto you're greeted to the main menu with some very catchy Kazoo music playing away. (More about the Kazoo’s later) From here, you have the option of changing the controls to keyboard, XBOX Controller or PS4 Controller format. But do not let this confuse you as it will be a PC and PS4 release. This review is based on the PC Version. You can go it alone of local co-op with three difficulties to choose from.

You are the Sword of Ditto, you awaken on a beach with the sea crashing at your feet and get rudely awaken by a Dung Beetle called Puku, who is the Swords guardian and your mentor on your journey to take down the Wicked Witch Mormo. Mormo rises every 100 years to cause nothing but havoc on the town of Ditto and in line with this a Sword of Ditto arises. With four days to take down the witch, you are left to your devices.

The gameplay in itself is simple with an attack command, a melee and a second for your toy (often a long range weapon). The game is a new adventure after each death of your hero and the town will look different and feel different each 100 years. You can regain equipment from the passing of your previous hero at the graveyard and also fast travel the land with your Kazoo at unlocked locations.

The Swords of Ditto is a beautiful little game, with a uplifting and great soundtrack and is a must buy for any indie adventure game fan.
