I swear, the first two minutes of this game I was compelled to give it five stars, the art is amazing, the movement feels good, and the world building is top-notch! All of the art and animations look so insanely good, it's amazing.
But once the real game with freeing the slaves begins it all falls apart, it all just becomes so frustrating! First off, the first obstacle on the respawn point is just absurd, you need to go through a slippery ladder to try and get past a huge guard that for the most part just sits on the exact location you need to get past. The solution is obviously to use the hidden box, but even that is a little unresponsive and has a bit of a delay before it activates. But even through this the incredible art and world building continues, every life lost is a stamp of failure burned on your back which you clearly get to see progress, and eventually means execution, it fits PERFECTLY with the story and setting.
This game could have been so incredible with the story, art, and world building, but the gameplay really is just frustrating and poorly put together.
