World to the West is a solid Link to the Past inspired experience that fans of that style of game will enjoy, and it was extremely interesting to see the world of Teslagrad fleshed out more through these four new characters. It is just unfortunate that the totem mechanic, which sounds cool on paper, ends up feeling like unnecessary padding that can make the game more frustrating than fun.
World to the West is a delightfully charming game with some irritating design flaws that prevent it from achieving excellence. While the characters are fun and their abilities are creative, the puzzles they’re used for lack the level of challenge that’s become expected from modern indie games, and the fast-travel system often forces you to spend lots of time backtracking.
The unfulfilling exploration and repetitive, one-dimensional combat really bring the experience down, especially when you consider those needed to be the areas it excelled in. The presentation in the cutscenes is great, and the music is simple and chirpy, but when it's boring to play and there's little to no draw to find out what happens next, unfortunately it's just another name to add to the list of Zelda-inspired indie titles.
