Personal review
A rogue-lite fighting-platformer game with a very peculiar and oniric setting.

Pros:
-The game is raw fluid art, from the music and atmosphere to the peculiar looks (who seem like and assembly of Bosch paintings, chilean mythology, architecture from the Renaissance and S.XIX colorful portraits)
-Enemy AI is challenging, making each enemy a notable hurdle in your journey.
-A fighting system who lends heavily from Smash Bros. series and adds some other elements (as parries)
-A reset-over gameplay, pointing to the importance of surviving over a foolhardy approach.
-Soul-capture: you can play as your enemies.
-Journal pages: a simple and powerful way of delivering a backstory drop by drop.

Cons:
-Camera zooms are not adequate from time to time.
-The control feels very clunky, making fighting and platforming frustrating. Sadly, this is a MAJOR issue for enjoying the game.
