    Although Rabi-Ribi presents itself as a light-hearted adventure about chibi animals, it’s actually a frantic, bullet-hell RPG under the hood. It might be the best modern Metroidvania title we've seen in years.

    If the story is nonsensical, the fighting and platforming are great fun.

    The mix of Metroidvania style gameplay and bullet hell boss fights is novel and interesting. I did enjoy the boss fights, but the stretches in between weren't as much fun.

    This is a "bullet hell" game with a Metroidvania design.

    If you like difficult bullet hell games where you're dodging a thunderstorm of bullets non-stop for 20 minutes at a time during a boss battle, Rabi-Ribi will be amazing. If you like Metroidvania games, you might want to pass. The main mode of this game actually discourages MV-style exploration. It's more focused on dodging while chipping away at enemies.

    Pros:
    - Cute MV-style world
    - The BG music for each area is awesome
    - Awesome bullet-hell boss battles
    - Excellent freedom of choice (all items are optional) and backtracking
    - Offers many difficulty levels and you can switch between them; normal mode is quite forgiving

    Cons:
    - The story is absolute nonsense and extremely-weak
    - The characters are too psychotic to be cute
    - Collecting items is a double-edged sword that levels up enemies
    - Certain bosses sequences are really long
    - Post-game content is insanely difficult
