    Despite some difficulty spikes, Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is one of the best metroidvanias I've played in years, with gorgeous visuals, remarkable atmosphere, and amazing soundtrack.

    Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is a little gem, a polished and excellently crafted game that all fans of the genre should play.

    Ender Lilies is a wonderful experience and an essential if you like this type of proposal. A superb level design packed with memorable moments is finally here after a long period of Early Access, and it hasn't disappointed.

    When you die, you’re sent back to the last rest point without penalty. The game still offers some customisation in its combat, but its approach is simplified. The lack of a deep combat system might be a turn-off to those looking for a challenge, but we applaud the devs for allowing more players to get through it – which is more than can be said of some of its inspirations. Tying everything together is an art style that, once again, makes Ender Lilies easy to get into. It certainly features grotesque creatures, but its balance of beauty and horror is a highlight and one of the game’s best aspects. [Issue#5, p.77]

Although hardly revolutionizing the "metroidvania" formula, Ender Lilies is incredible example of how engrossing storytelling, a wonderful soundtrack, and refined combat can elevate an otherwise derivative gameplay experience. This remains one of my favorite games to date. Expand

    1 I like the way priestess and background story

    2 The world is way liner 3 combat is lacking but it's good and suite the I dea of priestess

    4 I was hoping for survival npc to tell the story more and do some sides quest 5 beautiful music it's great to hear great ost from games that's not AAA 6 To be fair comparing this game with hollow knight or Salt and sanctuary
    It's not fair In the end it's satisfying game from studio first project
    And worth my time and money

    So if you want to play a game before Hollow knight silk song and salt and sacrifice

    This game Will be great experience

    Overall enjoyment 8:5/10

    Amazing art and very good music, the plot is pretty good. But I wasn't into it enough to read all of the optional side item lore. The combatAmazing art and very good music, the plot is pretty good. But I wasn't into it enough to read all of the optional side item lore. The combat isn't as good as other similar games I've played. It doesn't feel as smooth or fun in general, but also the enemies and bosses were just pretty disappointing across the board. Only a couple bosses had cool looking designs but even those ones were pretty boring fight wise. This game was extremely frustrating at times for me, more frustrating than Hollow Knight or any Fromsoft game or basically anything I've played which also drops my score a but. It was frustrating in a bad way, not hard in a good way. Expand

    I picked up Ender Lilies most because of the art style. It reminds me of a Vanillaware game. Also I'm a fan of Metroidvania games. Although II picked up Ender Lilies most because of the art style. It reminds me of a Vanillaware game. Also I'm a fan of Metroidvania games. Although I haven't played many of the popular Indie ones. Where to begin with this game? I'm about 3 hours in as of writing this. I'm finding the game really mediocre.

    The combat is okay, but there is this lag when you swing your weapon. So you're stuck in this pose which leaves you open for attacks. Speaking of attacks, all the mobs all seem to use projectiles. I did get a projectile grenade like attack that does help, but you're given only so many charges. For a side scrolling game the hit boxes are atrocious. You could be well away from an enemy attack and still get hit for whatever reason. I often found myself dodging only to dodge into another enemy or dodge and still get hit by the enemy from dodging though them. Bosses are damage sponges. You have to beat them almost flawlessly because their attacks are going to kill you in one or two hits. This would be fine if the leveling system actually did something. But I read that leveling doesn't give you any sort of advantage since enemies scale to your level. So, what's the point of leveling then? Overall combat feels stiff and boring. Just memorize the enemy patterns and hope for the best.

    Exploration isn't fun. I'm just going into a straight line. Nothing about the world makes me want to explore or even question what kind of place was this before everything happened. This is because each room looks pretty much the same from the last. They couldn't make the zones a little more distinct? Instead they're too big and a slog to get through. It's hard to know what you can and cannot jump on. Something might look like it's a part of the background but you can actually jump on it. The mini map does indicate there are branching parts in the room, but there is no indication where the branch is so you might just walk past it. It's frustrating and causes unnecessary backtracking. There should be a better indicator where a door or path is in the background.

    Also for a game like this there isn't much incentive TO explore. You might find some mcguffin to spend on your spirit pals or maybe a +5 to HP boost. But I guess I wish there was a little more variation. Like finding different armors or weapons to equip. The game feels lacking in the things to find. Isn't that one of the main things of these kinds of games? I feel like I'm clearing one rectangle room just to clear out the next rectangle room. While not actually finding anything important.

    Honestly the music is the worst part of this experience. Not sure why they decided on using these slow piano pieces. It puts me to sleep. It just loops and loops too. If it were any good I wouldn't mind. But it really makes everything from the exploration to combat even more boring. I actually put on the Castlevania Symphony of the Night soundtrack and it made the experience a lot better. So I think the music is going to be a huge factor for some.

    The plot is non existent and you only learn about things through files you collect and by purifying people. Still not sure about what my mission is, my motivations, or why I should continue on.

    I don't understand the praise for this game. It's just so mediocre and tries to do what a lot of other games have done better in past. Also, you get the double jump in the first 30 minutes. What the hell?

    I got drawn into Ender Lilies due to its music, due to this when I saw the game was available on ps4, i inmediatly bought it. Shortly after, II got drawn into Ender Lilies due to its music, due to this when I saw the game was available on ps4, i inmediatly bought it. Shortly after, I was mesmerized by the beautiful art direction, deep music, and fast combat. This game is the best metroidvania i've ever played. The combat is fast and responsive, the difficulty is perfect, the soundtrack is flawless, and the leveling systems are completely understandable. I love that the map tells you if there are unexplored routes, and if you have completed the area. I overall love this game, its design, its music, and its characters. The story is really good too! I 100% recommend this game to anyone that likes metroidvanias. Expand
