    Escape from Naraka takes the best–and unfortunately, some flaws–of classic platformers; making precise leaps can be challenging when you can’t see your feet. At the same time, it also injects some of the studio’s own culture and twists into the environments, letting you immerse in a Southeast Asian-inspired universe that’s as mystical as it’s alluring.

    For most of the game, everything kills you in a single hit. Some enemy attacks only do one or two points of damage though. You have three health points, so I’m not sure why almost everything in the game has to kill you in one hit. The answer that I’ve come up with is that this game is bad and you shouldn’t play it.

    At times the game reminds you of classic first person shooters like Heretic and Quake, but without the shooting. Escape from Naraka in fact does it without weapons. Original and refreshing, but frustrating to jump from platform to platform in this perspective, when monsters can kill you with a single blow. The atmosphere in the game is good, but when you reach the end after barely two hours of play and are only relieved that the game is already over, something is thoroughly wrong.
