    This game is something else. Points for originality, but god damnit.... this is bad. Like relentlessly bad right down to the core. In this game you are an ineffective melee fighter/acrobat with terrible combat controls and imprecise and unreliable jumping controls. You are followed constantly by a large ogre-like creature with the IQ of a lifeless rock. The Ai is coded intentionallyThis game is something else. Points for originality, but god damnit.... this is bad. Like relentlessly bad right down to the core. In this game you are an ineffective melee fighter/acrobat with terrible combat controls and imprecise and unreliable jumping controls. You are followed constantly by a large ogre-like creature with the IQ of a lifeless rock. The Ai is coded intentionally terribly makin the ogre (Majin) fall over nothing with an audible "ouch!" slowing you down at every turn. And guess what? This idiot creature is your only means of actual combat. He has some powerful attacks, but the AI has been crippled so badly that he can never ever hit with his basic or magic attacks. This results in fight after fight of frustration and tediousness when you try to get this giant moron to hit something. The game knows how terrible the combat is and has achievements/trophies for performing ten of each "elemental finishers" which basically require you to combo multiple enemies into stun mode using a very limited amount of magic.... that never ever hits. Resulting in achievements that are actually impossible to get as they are coded. This is one of the worst games I've played in my entire life. Fu*k. This. Game. Expand

    The game is quite enjoyable but the backtracking, sound work, finicky control scheme and unnecessary fight sequences drained much of the enjoyment I experienced.

    Fabulous trip to fight against the darkness is quite a success. Simple combat system and easy puzzles are challenging for younger players only. [Issue#200]

    For everyone who ever thought that commanding a beast can only be great, this game demonstrates otherwise. It has good points but they are few and far between.
