Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight


An evil curse is floating through the land. On the shoreline, a priestess who comes from the village of Lun has arrived. She needs to get an audience with the queen to save the region. Will she get this audience in time or will it be too late?

Momodara: Reverie Under the Moonlight, is a 2D platformer with really great pixel artworks. This game is the fourth in the series. You will take control of the priestess of Lun and you will be armed with extraordinary weapons - I’ll give it to you straight up: a maple leaf and a bow, for good measure. Every time you kill an enemy not only will he or she vanish, but pink diamonds (that’s what I will call them) appear for the taking. Basically, it’s money, and you will be able to purchase items from some characters with them. Writing this, you will come across a chest which also holds plenty of money. In some places, you will be able to investigate and you will earn interesting items which you can equip you in your active or passive slots from your inventory.  To give you an example, you might have in the active slot (three slots in total) “Bellflower” and every time you activate it, you will regenerate more health. In regards to the passive slots (of which you have two), it could be the “Astral Charm” which enables you to get more money each time you get rid of an enemy.

In terms of bosses, they are interesting, and when you find the right pattern, you will be able to eliminate them pretty quickly. Bear in mind, I have being playing this game in the normal difficulty; if you want to step the difficulty up you can do so and try the hard difficulty.

In terms of the controls, they are slick and responsive. You will be able to jump, double jump and roll to avoid an enemy or their projectiles but also get behind them for the kill. Slash your way through with your exceptional Maple Leaf or use your bow easily.

Graphically, I really enjoy the pixel artworks and animations. The soundtrack is good and the levels are well-designed.
