    Love this game, a must own for metroidvania fans. Truly a passion project by the creator and it shows. Admittedly has some portions that feel like they drag and a few difficulty spikes that feel sudden but worth playing through. Slow start, builds up to lots of fun with a few moments of frustration at either difficulty or distance back trotting but not enough to make it bad.

    toendra says:
    Interesting world, unusual ideas for metroidvania, maniacally polished pixels. Plays well, except for the Boguin cannon part, it’s the most frustrating part, almost a torture, like devs didn’t test it before launching. The rest is nice.

    I found this game to be overrated.. its not necessarily bad but the universal praise this game has seems unjustified. It can be tedious and repetitive. The story is pretty good and I like the characters but this game for me was a bit of a letdown.
