Lead Anselm through this unforgiving sidescroller, use the lantern to bind demons in a pentagram of light, and free this once peaceful city from an ancient evil.

Short but sweet, if a bit iffy on the controls.

Let's start off with the appearance. The graphics for the game are very nice and are well drawn. The character and demon designs are excellent and interesting, and the game looks appealing even on the lowest setting. However, the graphics seem pretty poorly optimized. Even on the lowest it had some running issues, and in fact sometimes it wouldn't even acknowledge that I put it on lowest.

The characters are fantastic. Anselm is interesting, with him appearing to be a rather incompetent demon hunter that isn't too sure about his faith, and Zipp is a witty and fun demon with so much personality that he easily steals the show, and with some fantastic voice acting to boot. Not to say Anselm's was bad, but compared to Zipp's pizazz it leaves something to be admired.

The story was enjoyable, but somewhat weak. Where were the rest of the hunters? How come Anselm was so quick to trust a demon? However I gather that these plot holes are there from being the fact that this appears to be the first in a series, so I'll let that slide to see what happens in later installments. Besides, I think the characterizations between the two are good enough to ignore the story; Anselm and Zipp are fantastically written.

The music was fantastic. I especially like the music that played during the Nocxis battle, it did well with giving a sense of urgency that was required for that boss.

The main problem I have with the game though is the controls. They're pretty bad in some cases. For the most part it worked somewhat well for me, but sometimes the mouse would suddenly appear to be chugging, moving in directions I wasn't even moving it towards and going extremely slow; especially in the lantern mode. Even on the lowest graphics it would do that, so I assume it's something more than just graphic lag.

Despite the flaws, I really enjoyed this game. I hope to see more with this, I have a feeling this could be a great series. Keep up the good work, and good luck trying to improve the flaws!

Amazing game.But I do have some problems with it.For one,while Anselm is reloading his reactions slows down by a lot.Making it difficult to dodge hits from enemies.Second,would be how the screen moves while fighting bosses.It makes it difficult to see what they're going to next.That is all.



Bravo, such beautiful gameplay! The AI's movements were executed perfectly. I really enjoyed it! Next time (please let there be a next time) can you possibly make several endings depending on choices one might possibly take?

Err... A bit fail that the first boss was harder than the rest. And that you could shoot through it. :/
