    Over its roughly eight hour play time, Stonefly brings up a bunch of conflicting feelings. Its combat mechanics and gameplay loop can be frustrating and unengaging at times, but its story, art direction, and music create a lush and wholly unique world that's hard to walk away from. Stonefly may not be for everybody, but it is definitely worth checking out for players who enjoy the grind or just want to experience a heart-warming and visually engaging story.

    With its charming, restful universe, its polished soundtrack and its original approach to mechas who can achieve feats in combat, Stonefly is a fun game, but more calibrated for short sessions than for long-term immersion.

    Stonefly is bristling with creative ideas, but doesn't quite manage to deliver them properly. The world is beautiful, but its design damages gameplay, combat is unique but make it very difficult to manage the amount of enemies required at once, and traversal is interesting but manages to feel unreliable due to its mechanical design. It's a game of missed opportunities, but there’s still a number of reasons why you should experience this uniquely designed action RPG.

    Stonefly is an action-adventure game like no others, with mech-insects, relaxing exploration and non-violent battles...but if falls flat on the narrative and gameplay sides too soon.

    It’s a shame that Stonefly‘s combat is so frustrating, because there are glimmers of a good experience here. It’s a novel concept, and collecting materials to upgrade your rig is a satisfying gameplay loop. But whether you can grit your teeth through a myriad of problems to gleam just a slither of enjoyment is highly debatable.
