    One key feature in the game that makes it an interesting play is the use of pixels. I love the retro style pixelated characters and game world.

    Mable and the Wood is a side-scrolling metroidvania game with a unique combat/traversal mechanic. The form you start with and ones you unlock are fun to use for the most part. Reading the map can be annoying, but it's possible to interpret. Multiple endings offers more replay value if you're inclined to do so.

    Mable & The Wood on PC is really enjoyable at times and very frustrating at others. Furthermore, Mable & The Wood caused a full cycle of emotions while playing through the main story.

    Mable & The Wood is no cakewalk and there are brief moments where you’ll struggle to make progress. But promise of new abilities and new areas to explore will keep you playing – and when you leap, slash and swing your way to them, you’ll never be disappointed. Mable & The Wood oozes charm from beginning to end and, even in a market that isn’t short of Metroidvanias, it more than distinguishes itself.

    I am glad to see that Mable & the Wood was able to maintain the level of quality that I saw in my earlier preview. The platforming has a nice flow to it with a good balance of enemy hazard and platforming challenge. If you are a fan of metroidvania and or retro styled platformers I recommend you give Mable a chance.

The controls are irritating andAn interesting concept, and the game starts out well enough but quickly becomes a frustrating, glitchy mess. The controls are irritating and level design is pretty poor, e.g. dark rooms full of instant death lava where you can't see anything. And if you happen to die in a bad spot, you can't recover your corpse, so all your money is permanently gone. Full Review »
