Pretty good RPG platformer!

I also think the ending was a little bit anticlimactic. I was expecting a final battle or at least actually getting to see the egg in person. Gameplay is pretty fun, character and environment designs were great, and backtracking is easy to understand, instead of being really confusing like in some other games!

Sound design could use a little as well - if I have the volume up loud enough to really enjoy the music, the battle intro noise is way too loud. On top of that, I'm not sure why the music resets when you die and respawn, it seems to mess with the immersion a little bit. It did take me a while to get used to the sudden transition from traditional Middle Eastern to metal music as well.

Everything about this game, the rpg combat, the scattered lore pages, even the aesthetics, is peak Xinelu. Whether or not you like that depends on whether you like the kinds of games Xinelu usually makes. Part of me wants to spend hours writing a detailed review, but I'm tired so I'll just say I enjoyed it, but there were some areas that I couldn't cross if I wasted enough of my items and saved, which could be fixed in any number of ways.

Overall, this is aight.

(: ty for the kind words haha

I'm still deciding if I'm going to take this project forward or not! Time was my real enemy when making this project + college during the past week x_x . I just wish I had more feedback, few ppl even saw my game so is kind hard to go around and ask ppl to play it.

The game's concept is pretty unique, almost like an RPG metroidvania. It's cool! My only complaint is that the controls and gameplay don't feel great. I think this game could be easily expanded on, that'd be sick! Very well presentation, very unique experience!

xinelu responds:

I focus on making it work and than visuals... maybe my priorities were wrong haha.

But thank you for playing it :) it was a risk to try a different RPG for once
