[edit] Background

Ico is an adventure about a twelve year old boy left for dead by his neighbours who thought he was 'evil'. He survives and has a vision which puts him on a path to save the princess from the evil queen. The game incorporates genres like puzzle, strategy, fighting, RPG, and adventure that challenge the player through a mysterious storyline.

[edit] Features

  • Experience breath-taking environments and atmosphere; from dark dungeons to lofty castle heights.
  • Protect the princess at all costs; guiding her through elaborate obstacles and defending her from mysterious shadow creatures bent on her capture.
  • Unique traps and puzzles require players to be sharp-thinking and keenly aware of their surroundings.
  • Perform an astounding array of actions and feats to escape the castle alive; swinging on chains, jumping through windows, pulling crates through the water, and more.
  • Experience brilliantly designed animation sequences and stunningly realistic lighting effects.
