This game is extremely disappointing. The writing is awful, the quality of a middle schoolers. The big reveal happens 30 seconds into the game, without any prompting. It's just "Oh wow hey you're the chosen one and your soul is special." And the biggest issue is that the gameplay is so unpolished it can be compared to sandpaper.

When you are hit by an enemy, there is no indication that you are hit (other than the fact you lose health) so when in melee fights I have no idea what error I made because I don't know when or why I was injured. There is also no period of invincibility after an injury, a mechanic that is a staple for platformers, meaning that multiple attacks in a row can easily kill you.

Speaking of which, multiple lives? What year is this, 1990? Why use such an outdated mechanic? Why is purchasing the only way to get more lives--something that requires the player choose between permanent benefits or temporary ones?

Bottomless pits are another staple of platformers, and in and of themselves, they're fine. But if your game requires leaps of faith into deep pits, don't just throw in bottomless insta-death pits at the player without indication. An entire life, which doesn't come cheap, is lost because of the developer's lack of communication with the player.

In short, the developer has no idea how to use mechanics properly, resulting in a frustrating suicide simulator with childish writing. The art and animation isn't so bad, but it's also not great, and definitely not nearly enough to save this game from being a catastrophe. All in all, I regret laying eyes on the game and thinking "Oh hey a game about medieval cat people sounds fun." Not fun at all.
