|TOP PROS||TOP CONS|
|Near perfect gameplay with fantastic controls that combines elements from both “metroidvania” and “Souls-like” games.||Too many similarities with Dark Souls. In fact, IT IS a 2-d Dark Souls.|
|There is a ton of weapons, armors and spells to find and upgrade each one with its own unique attributes.||Areas can be initially tough to navigate due to the fact that there is no map. Also, some platforming sections are frustratingly difficult.|
|Enemies (particularly bosses) are challenging without being unfair.||Uninteresting story that is mainly told via dialogue boxes while talking to the few NPCs that are scattered around the world. There are no cut scenes whatsoever.|
|Different character classes (from knight to chef!!) that play distinctly and progressively stronger enemies with each playthrough offer tons of replayability.||Forgettable soundtrack and sound design in general.|
|VERDICT||A good and addicting game that will provide you with many hours of quality gameplay despite its few shortcomings.|
