    While it may not be the first of its kind or groundbreaking, RemiLore brings the potential of even more to come in the future and starts in a great place that makes it well worth giving a try as it’s the perfect balance of challenge without being frustrating. RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is a fun adventure with enjoyable dialogue and characters in addition to some great combat that makes it fun to replay again and again.

    RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore delivers tons of loot-based hack-and-slash joy despite the repetition and a few frustrating hiccups with the procedurally generated levels.

    My only real gripe with the game is the lack of saving and respawning options. I am one of those players that tends to die a lot, so it can be a bit frustrating. Not to mention the mini-map is quite small, so it can be easy to miss something important before moving onto the next level. Other than that, RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is an incredibly fun title. With beautiful graphics and fluid hack ’n’ slash action, not to mention the back and forth hilarious banter from our heroes, this title is an easy pick whether you are playing it at home or on the go.

    RemiLore is a fast-paced satisfying rogue-lite game with randomized level maps, fun hack-and-slash moves, and smooth controls. If the save mechanic was better, this would be a top-notch game.

    RemiLore proves itself to be a well-made and inoffensive loot grind of an RPG; consider giving this one a look.

    RemiLore lays a decent groundwork in terms of gameplay and design, but it never really goes beyond that. Combat is simple and promising, but the lack of depth makes it hard to stay engaged with it for very long. The visuals, likewise, lack any kind of unique punch or distinct art style to make them stand out as anything other than generic. The game is helped by its forgiving nature and the likable pair of protagonists you control, but a bit more care and effort could have helped make this game something truly special.

    RemiLore is not a bad game, it's more of a missed opportunity, because the gameplay loop feels familiar and funny just in small doses and there's a complete lack of innovations, enemy variety and customization.

    This is actually a very enjoyable game, particularly when played in coop, but it feels quite simple and easy. A deeper gameplay and a more challenging difficulty would have made it a much better experience.

    RemiLore gets the mechanics for a fun dungeon crawler down, but does little to hold a player’s attention.

    RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is a new 'hack and slash' RPG that combines challenging levels with a bland variation in characters.

    Boasting a wonderful story that is sadly betrayed by repetitive gameplay and an unfair system in which dying means a huge loss of progress, RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is only recommended if you’re serious about your dungeon crawling experiences.

    RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is a pretty basic hack-and-slash that offers some interesting levelling up options, but the lack of depth in both the story and combat leaves it feeling a little empty. Despite the great story premise, and a fun choice of character with Lore, the pages just feel a little empty to this book.

    Although it features a unique premise and a solid blend of genres, RemiLore's core gameplay is simply too monotonous to remain fun.

    RemiLore just doesn’t have enough variety to stay interesting for more than a few minutes. Though the characters are mildly entertaining with an impressive amount of dialogue to flesh out their interactions, there’s just too much you need to put up with to get to the good parts of the game. Rogue-lite and Action RPG are two crowded genres, and RemiLore unfortunately decided to tackle them both without covering even the basics of what makes either interesting in the first place.

    Nicalis offers us a game that simplifies the most usual mechanics of hack'n'slash and combines them with the procedural creation of levels. In the end, however, it lacks skills and weapons that diversify the gameplay, which ends up being repetitive and, therefore, boring.

    RemiLore is a simple effort and there's nothing wrong with that per se - the game features a good looking visual environment and some interesting ideas, the problem is putting them into practice without forcing the player into an experience that feels dull and repetitive...and that's exactly what ends up happening, as RemiLore does not have the assets to deliver an involving experience.

    Combine the uninspired enemies and level design with a checkpoint system that’s more than happy to erase half an hour of progress if you die midway through a run, and you’ll find that RemiLore becomes a game that’s more tedium than fun.

    Despite the good looks and a solid mechanical foundation, RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is a game hampered by repetitive gameplay, a story that isn’t all that compelling, and a save system that discourages mixing it up. Some of this could well be hammered out in subsequent installments, but as it stands now, this is an okay diversion but not a stellar title, especially at the starting price tag.

    RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Land of Lore is a huge disappointment for me. When you can grab something excellent like Enter the Gungeon for a fraction of the price, it almost comes off as embarrassing. It's not utterly vile like a pickle sandwich, just incomprehensibly dull considering its vibrant, cute, colorful presentation.

    The quest in RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is inconsequential, and the only reason why anyone would play this is to have a cute hack'n slash with the utter bare minimum of rogue elements. Bringing a friend along will help keep things interesting, but there is just not enough substance to keep most hooked. It is too easy, and one has to play very carelessly in order to feel the rush of walking that razor's edge that comes with the better rogue-likes.

    This is a pretty straight-forward rogue-lite hack-n-slash.

    Pros:
    -Tight Controls
    -Satisfying Gameplay
    -Kid Friendly, from what I've seen. No blood or gore.
    -Doesn't stray into pervy, like many anime-style games.
    -Casual difficulty, even death is forgiving, as you loose progress, but not upgrades or weapons.
    -Visually pleasing, lots of bright colors
    -Lots of amusing, unusual weapons to pick up

    Cons:
    -Short
    -Could stand to have some extras. More to do, customization options, etc.
    -Price is a high. Hopefully there will be some free updates.

    I know some people might view the casual difficulty as a con, but for me it's a pro. I don't really want every game to be hard. Sometimes I just want to relax and beat some things up, and this is a good game for it. I also didn't list repetitive as a con, as many people did. In Diablo, I hit buttons and kill stuff. In Binding of Isaac, I hit buttons and kill stuff. In Enter the Gungeon, I hit buttons and kill stuff. Seems silly to call a game like this repetitive. Of course it is. It's just a matter of whether you like hitting buttons and killing stuff in that particular game, and I like it in RemiLore.
