Phenomenal game experience. Love the music, love the setting, love the characters, so far my 2nd favorite of 2022. Let's see how it goes...

It's another souls-like metroidvania game, and a pretty good one at that. The most stand out thing is art style, which is really pretty. Also, the soundtrack is filled with really lovely piano tunes, which add to the atmosphere.

Though the thing that sets this game apart from other metroidvania games, is that you command spirits to do your bidding instead of attacking yourself. You acquire these spirits through boss fights, and can equip 6 at a time. Makes this game feel unique, even if it isn't too much more than just window dressing.

It doesn't compare to the titans of the metroidvania genre, and isn't terribly unique, but it is a pretty solid one. If you really like metroidvania's (or soulslikes) I would recommend it.

Metroidvania bacaninho, as vezes tu pode acabar tomando um soft block fudido e pode ser bem frustante, mas no geral, o estilo de arte e a atmosfera que o jogo passa acabaram me fazendo gostar do jogo independente dos problemas na gameplay. E as músicas também são muito boas então acabou me comprando.

Besides the art style, this game fights with Wonder Labyrinth for the least original metroidvania game

Art direction is okay but has more influences it in than anything original to say. And the gameplay aspects are mediocre and done better already by other games. The area progression is very basic, but the map sucks. Bosses are generally trivial and some also a drag. Despite the various skills there's not much reason to switch it up rather than upgrade the better ones. Having a level is also very annoying in a metroidvania where you can rush pretty fast through the game and end up underleveled dealing shit damage to enemies and taking longer on bosses. Exploration is sometimes more of a drag than anything, and sometimes not worth the rewards, but you may also miss on game-changing items. Bloodstained, Hollow Knight, Blasphemous are a few games ender lilies is reminiscent of and likely takes influences from that I recommend picking up instead.
