    Regardless of my handful of complaints, the fact is that Momodora grabbed me and never let go. From start to finish, I was in love with the world, the combat, the easter eggs, and nearly everything in between.

    Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight ticks all the boxes. It is a game with bags and bags of charm and the animation is wonderful to look at. With excellent weighty combat and some particularly memorable bosses, every aspect of the game feels crafted and tailored to near perfection. Whilst the short running time and 2D graphics will put some people off this is a game which I can easily recommend.

    Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight won't light the action platformer world on fire or usurp the greats of the genre like Castlevania, but it's got a lot of heart. I don't consider myself a complitionist, nor am I particularly good at this sort of game, but there is something about Momodora's bleak atmosphere that kept drawing me back to it. It's a strong example of how great art direction and solid game design can come together to make well-trodden paths feel fresh.

    While Momodora: Reverie Under The Moonlight doesn’t hit the highs of recent genre entries such as Ori and the Blind Forest it certainly offers fans of “Metroidvania” adventures a worthwhile and fun experience with great combat, solid world design and a wonderfully charming aesthetic that manages to feel fresh in spite of its pixel veneer.

    Momodora provides fast platforming and combat, a beautifully realized and interconnected world, and plenty of challenge, although often this challenge becomes frustration. However, it doesn’t do anything that hasn’t been done before by better games, and ultimately, it leaves no lasting impression.

    Momodora is quite a nice Metroidvania, offering a good challenge and nice retro graphics. It's just a bit short and lacks some originality to stand out.

    The game is roughly 6 hours and you barely feel them, once you enter the main area, the map is for you to explore at your own pace and way, once you enter an area there is some lore and NPCs to encounter and rapidly face a boss, it is fast and that is one of the strengths of this game, it doesn't waste its or your time. The world is charming and sad, merge that with a simple but beautiful art style and music and you have a solid game. As far as gameplay goes, it is simple but effective, you only have one weapon and one combo but you have to dodge a lot in order to evade attacks, which can be very punishing, so the challenge is good, at least in normal difficulty.

    The story is told in a similar fashion as the likes of Dark Souls and Bloodborne and it's pretty effective, although the sad mood of this game is at times accompanied by some silly and charming moments, so it's a little lighthearted at times, a welcomed thing. They were certain moments which I won't spoil, but I didn't expect to be this effective, particularly with one of the bosses, it was outstanding, speaking of bosses, they can be challenging but at times you can cheat a little with the equipment you get and broke the game if only by moments, is not that bad but it feels a little safer than it should.

    I can't recommend Momodora 4(?) enough, its developers deserve a lot of praise and a lot of money, I can only imagine what these guys can do if they only have the budget.

    Mais uma pérola escondida nos jogos indie, é triste que esse jogo seja tão pouco conhecido. Ele é ótimo em quase todos os aspectos

I love the design, the gameplay is great, combining close combat, archery and dodging, and the normal difficulty is rather hard, which is nice. Exploration is cool and boss fights are really satisfying.

    The bad side is the soundtrack. Music is rare and unfortunately not memorable.

    In the same genre, i would suggest you Chronicles of Teddy, which is a slightly better game in my opinion.

    Prós:
    - Jogabilidade
    - Direção de arte
    - Level design
    - Trilha sonora

    Contras:
    - Dificuldade, seu maior inimigo serão os espinhos que dão Hit-Ko.
    - Pouca diversidade de bosses e facilmente derrotados.
    - A progressão não é satisfatória, você ganha alguns recursos mas nada que altere muito o gameplay de inicio como outros jogos do gênero fazem.

    Conclusão : é um bom game mas nada excepcional, da pra zerar numa tardezinha e é bem divertido, pode demorar de 5 a 7 hrs pra finalizar a campanha.
