One fine day, Eryi went to eat the melon that she had been SO looking forward to... but it was nowhere to be found! Then she noticed a note on the table. She picked it up and read: "Your melon looked delicious, so I took it. From Farta X"
Fuming with rage, Eryi set out from her house to get her melon back from Farta.
Eryi's Action is a 2D platformer by developer Xtal Sword that is visually inspired by Super Mario, but has gameplay akin to games like I Wanna Be the Guy. Don’t be fooled by its adorably charming looks – this game abounds in traps and wants you to die! However, where IWBTG was murderously difficult, Eryi's Action is additively challenging and FUN!
Trap placement is often laugh-out-loud funny and seriously engaging. Some traps simply need to be learned to avoided, but others are puzzles that will require your skill and wits to beat. Either way, Eryi’s action delivers laughs, frustrating and satisfaction.
12 action-packed stages & boss fights!
Adorably charming world & characters!
Fiendishly cunning traps!
It’s okay to fail! Autosave has your back!
FUN! You'll die a lot, but you WILL go back for more!

Frustrating? Yes. Too much fun? YES!Ryukrieger | April 16, 2014 | See all Ryukrieger's reviews »
Short ver: This game is for people with patience, who wants to think logically combined with some reflexes, timing and of course, some sense of humour! But that's not all, thinking logically also means thinking outside of the box. In this game you WILL die a lot, get stuck on some parts for quite a bit, but the feelings of completion is flawless, so if you think you're patience enough, get this game!
Long version: Do you like brain-taxing, logical thinking game? If yes, get this game. Do you like funny and unexpected surprises? If yes, get this game. Do you like boss fights that are unique? If yes..... maybe consider the two points above first. Similar to so-called "Cat Mario", this game takes "trolling" the player to skyscraper, but each stage is unique to their own, making all deaths seemingly funny but... er... you'll die a lot. I died a total of 789 times through the game (finished it), What will make the game appealing? First, it makes you think every stage, think outside the box, that is. Second, not only it lets you unleash your brainiac power, but it will also make you make use of your reflex, coordinations and timing. Third.... make sure you don't wreck your computer or keyboard, you may rage with this game.
So what are you waiting for? If you have the patience and mind and hands to play this game! Then go for it! It's not easy, but it's not hard, either! It's just.... brain-hurting sometimes! (Not just because of the puzzles, but also the pain of dying!)
This game gets an 81 from me with the above reasons, but I know not everyone would agree with me! But anyway, this is just a (personal) game recommendation!

I bought this title when it was included in Build a Greenlight bundle, and it was a really surprise. Good graphic (it reminds me a lot Super Mario World for Super Nintendo), good gameplay (and the autosave feature is really important, so you can try your way without the problem of loose a life) and a nice soundtrack. It isn't very long, but I had a lot of fun when I played it.
