    Imp of the Sun is an amazing and fun platform game, more than recommended not only for fans of the style but also for fans of games like Metroid and Hollow Knight . It is a game that must be played more than once.

    So far, Sunwolf Entertainment shows potential to continue in its quest to gain a foothold in the gamer world, since with its first development it has received constant feedback in the press, which should provide them with the necessary elements to fine-tune the defects and polish their virtues based on the soundtrack and the setting of pre-Columbian cultures.

    Imp Of The Sun stands alongside the likes of Smelter, MindSeize and Cobra Kai as a flawed game that nonetheless has an enormous amount to offer and is likely to be criminally ignored. If you're after something off the beaten track, we urge you to consider the sixes and sevens of this world and give them a chance. We don't think Imp Of The Sun will be anyone's favourite game, but we do think that anyone who picks it up will remember it later on and go "oh yeah, Imp Of The Sun. That was a good time!"

    Imp of the Sun is a clear example of what can be done with a good story. The obvious limitations can be overlooked and you can enjoy this mythological story that takes us through the vestiges of the Inca culture and the magic of that world before the arrival of Pizarro and Cortes.

    It combines exploration, platforming, puzzles, impressive combat and gameplay as simple as it is addictive. Spice it up with Peruvian folklore and add a dash of metroidvania, a bit of soulslike and stunning artwork.

    Imp of the Sun isn’t a bad game at all, but with a few issues and so much choice when it comes to Metroidvanias it’s tough to recommend.

    While the graphics are terrific and the level design is highly creative, the gameplay leaves much to be desired. This game is entertaining and visually appealing but left a lot else on the table.

It is aImp of the sun is a good 2D platform title that intelligently rescues part of the cultural legacy of Andean civilizations. It is a Metroidvania that, despite being problematic in some points, is beautiful, has interesting puzzles, is straight to the point, presents a moderate challenge and is very accessible to those who can't stand the labyrinthine complexity of more purist titles of the sub-genre.
