Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition Free Download Unfitgirl There was a time when a platform holder publishing games for a rival format would have been completely unheard of. Unthinkable, even! Yet, a bizarre chain of events has seen Microsoft Studios release a handful of games for our beloved Switch, including the likes of Minecraft and, surprisingly, even Cuphead. While Microsoft has since played down the possibility of future titles making the leap, we’re delighted to see that 2015’s acclaimed Ori and the Blind Forest has made the journey to Nintendo’s hybrid device. Let’s see if it has survived the trip. Ori and the Blind Forest has a slightly unusual history. A non-linear platformer (or ‘Metroidvania’, as the kids say) from Austrian-based Moon Studios. Initial development was led by team members scattered across the globe, many of whom hadn’t even met each other until E3 2014. Despite this, their work impressed Microsoft from an early stage and it didn’t hesitate in signing a publishing deal. Despite a long and unique development, the game was well-received when it was initially released on the Xbox One in 2015, with the only casualty along the way being a mooted Xbox 360 version. The team has spoken of how much the likes of The Lion King and The Iron Giant were huge inspirations, but there are definite shades of Team Ico’s best in the way the game places emphasis on the development of its main character and the player’s relationship with them; it is the focus on Ori which makes this game so special.

Being a Metroidvania, the structure of the game should be familiar to most people. Players are presented with a complete world which is fundamentally non-linear, yet it is mostly locked off and requires the player to obtain various abilities throughout the game in a linear fashion. These abilities range from the more traditional sets of skills such a ‘double jump’ to reach places too high to jump to normally, to the ‘charge flame’ which can be used to blast down barriers so players can progress. These become more varied as players progress through the game, and also more tricky to pull off. The game is free of loading screens, instead presenting the world as a continuous whole. Even the warp points are carefully designed to not make the player feel like they have actually left the game world. Players can return to previous areas once they have obtained new abilities in order to access parts which were previously inaccessible, with the game keeping track of how much of each area has been completed for those who want that vital 100% rating. So far, so Metroidvania, then. What makes Ori and the Blind Forest so special is its presentation. Unveiling a world which is dark in colour scheme yet much lighter in tone, this game is a candidate for the prettiest 2D platformer of all time. When us grumpy old folk complain that the mainstream of 2D gaming ended a generation or two too early, this game is exactly what we are talking about. Not only is there a dense, borderline obsessive amount of detail to the world, but all this is backed up by extremely fluid animation.
One really nice touch is the foreground layer which is occasionally used in front of the main playfield, obscured using a depth-of-field effect. It’s not always there and is used occasionally to draw the player’s attention without Ori themselves noticing what is happening. This serves to not only emphasise that the player isn’t actually Ori but is instead watching Ori, but also that the player is not alone in viewing the events as curious shadows appear in front of the player, unseen by the protagonist, foreboding what is yet to come. This care and consideration given to exactly how the story is presented to the player is key to enchanting people and drawing them into the world, and is a huge contrast to the way that story exposition can be thrust awkwardly upon the player in similar games. This is backed up by a fantastic musical score, which is as atmospheric as you might expect from this type of game, but also responds to the events of the game. On occasions when disaster happens and Ori must run for their life, the music picks up the pace and adds to the sense of panic and impending danger. It is clear that there was close collaboration between the entire development team; the music never simply feels layered on top of the game, but an integral part of it. Pokemon UNITE Switch NSP
This would be for nought if the gameplay wasn’t up to snuff, but Ori And The Blind Forest certainly isn’t all style, no substance – the game is also a joy to play. Taking its inspiration from Ubisoft’s more recent Rayman outings, everything feels smooth and fluid, yet also precise and intricate. The game can certainly be challenging, but it never feels like you’re fighting with the controls to make Ori do what you want them to do. This sense of having full control over the character is critical to ensuring the game’s challenge never becomes frustrating, as Ori And The Blind Forest always makes sure the player feels that they CAN do it; it’s just within grasp, they just have to try one more time. The game has a save system seemingly designed to accommodate this. Ori And The Blind Forest’s generous save system consists of fixed saved points in conjunction with the player being able to create a custom save point (called a ‘soul link’) at any point provided they have enough energy cells. Naturally, players will create a new soul link before any potentially difficult area. Perhaps the only real issue here is the seeming lack of quick load feature, meaning players may find it easier to kill Ori themselves after making a mistimed jump rather than traverse back to the save point on foot. This is a strange oversight given what the developers are trying to do, though not a dealbreaker. The game never feels like it is making players replay sections just to pad out the length. Instead, Ori and the Blind Forest challenges players to keep trying and get better without this ever feeling like forced repetition. The sense of reward is palpable.
GRAPHICS AND AUDIO – A MASTERFULLY POLISHED EXPERIENCE
On the technical side, this seems to be an utterly flawless conversion from its Xbox One big brother. In fact, while we cannot verify this ourselves, reports suggest that the animation has actually been improved over the original version. It may not seem like a big deal that even the Switch manages to handle a fundamentally 2D game, but there is a little more to consider. Ori and the Blind Forest runs on the Unity engine, which has a history of performance issues on Nintendo’s device. It was one of the reasons why Yooka-Laylee took so long to arrive, and also why RiME didn’t turn out quite so well. With that in mind, the team have done an excellent job getting the game to run flawlessly with no notable dips in performance. Ori and the Blind Forest will even log into your Microsoft account – the same one used on the Xbox, and it can be strange seeing your Xbox icon on the title screen. This doesn’t translate into Xbox achievements, though the game does have its own built-in achievement system. The only real technical issue is actually the Joy-Con themselves. Not only is this a 2D game, but it’s one which requires a fair bit of precision jumping. Neither the analogue stick nor the cluster of buttons in place of a D-Pad feel ideal. This could be an excuse to pick up Hori’s excellent D-Pad Joy-Con for people who intend to play in portable mode on an original Switch, or a proper controller if you are a docked player (or even the Switch Lite, which also rocks a proper D-Pad).

The Switch in its portable mode of play is arguably the perfect way to play Ori, being so easy to pick up and play in quick bursts and never looking compromised on the small screen, but something better than the default input device is recommended.In the midst of a great storm, forest spirit Ori is torn away from their birthplace in the boughs of the Spirit Tree and swept deep into the forest where they’re found by the kindly Naru, who raises them as her own child. A peaceful and bountiful childhood is interrupted one night when the Spirit Tree reaches out to try and locate Ori, filling the sky with its powerful light and frightening Ori and Naru back into hiding. Soon, the forest begins to wither and die, and with Ori on the brink of starvation, all seems lost. Thankfully, at the last moment they are found and reinvigorated by the light of the Spirit Tree, setting Ori on a quest to bring light to the Elements of Water, Wind and Warmth and restore the forest to its former grandeur. Along the way, however, Ori is pursued by a monstrous and terrifying bird known as Kuro, who seems dead-set on stopping the young spirit – whatever the cost.Ori and the Blind Forest does a very good job of taking what at first seems a fairly unambiguous good vs evil, light vs darkness, ‘go fetch the X magical MacGuffins’ narrative and imbuing it with just enough nuance along the way to turn it into a moving parable about love, parenthood and sacrifice. Without wishing to spoil too much – they’re small and simple story beats, but you’ll want to experience them yourself – the game manages to add a layer of sympathy to the vengeful villain even while she’s hunting you down and mercilessly killing you in one hit
GAMEPLAY – ORI BE NIMBLE, ORI BE QUICK
The overarching gameplay style in Ori is that of a Metroidvania game, featuring a large, interconnected map and the gradual accumulation of new combat and traversal abilities that unlock new areas for exploration in the style of classic Metroid and Castlevania games. You’ll find a host of familiar skills available such as double jumping, wall-climbing, and shooting bolts of energy from your light-spirit companion Sein, but the game isn’t afraid to introduce new ideas and mix things up to keep you on your toes, and by the end of the game you’ll be leaping around the screen, barely touching the floor. Of particular note is the game’s approach to saving your game and providing checkpoints: very early on you acquire the ability to create a Soul Link, which saves your game and gives you a place to respawn if you die. This unique flexibility pairs well with the game’s intrinsic difficulty: in a world where the enemies hit hard and one-hit-kill hazards are scattered liberally throughout the levels, being able to save quickly just before or after a particularly difficult section lets you jump right back into the action almost immediately should the worst happen. Another notably creative ability you acquire is Ori’s Bash move. Using this, Ori can catapult off enemies and their projectiles, allowing them to cross distances and climb to heights that would otherwise be unreachable. Pokémon Shining Pearl Switch NSP
This skill in particular lends itself well to platforming puzzles later on the game: at one late-game point, I found myself in a room ricocheting from fireball to fireball, trying to avoid not only landing in the instant-kill lava but also accidentally killing the enemies that were providing me with the projectiles that were keeping me airborne.Overall I found the confluence of classic platforming challenges with creative puzzles that emerged from the interesting array of abilities that Ori amasses immensely satisfying. Trial and error became a large part of the gameplay for some of these puzzles, but with the Soul Link system providing easy-to-use checkpoints it rarely became frustrating. Even in the few sequences where you’re unable to use the Soul Link, primarily when escaping the game’s dungeons pursued by a rising torrent of water or a vindictive giant bird, the cycle of dying and restarting just managed to steer clear of becoming annoying, as I edged closer to victory each time. Definitive Edition’s Easy difficulty setting even helps to assuage that issue by adding extra automatic checkpoints in those sequences. As well as the new moves you acquire from departed forest spirits over the course of the story, the game features a three-pronged upgrade tree which provides notable but non-mandatory upgrades to your abilities, such as providing a bit of health restoration when laying down a Soul Link or showing the location of collectibles on the map screen.
While the critical path of the game (that is, the route followed while primarily following the main story) is semi-linear, the new abilities you pick up open up countless new secrets and shortcuts in previous areas that can lead to collectibles that augment your health or spirit energy, so exploration is certainly encouraged. Now, all this applies to the core game itself, as it was when released in 2015. Definitive Edition, which originally released in 2016 and came to Switch in 2019, provided a host of quality-of-life additions, such as a fast-travel system, full backtracking capability (primarily the option to revisit cleared dungeons and return to the game after completing it) and different difficulty levels, including the infamous One Life mode, in which you must start the whole game anew if you die even once. Even as someone who managed to eke out a victory in Hollow Knight’s Steel Soul Mode, I have to confess the very idea has me trembling in fear for my sanity. The number of one-hit-kill obstacles alone would certainly drive me to the brink of madness, but the gaming community has never met a challenge that someone, at least, could not overcome: many fans of the game have not only managed to beat this mode, but some have taken it upon themselves to beat the game without even taking a single hit, let alone dying.
