La-Mulana is a really nice game but prepare to die often because of some badass bosses, normal enemies or , and this is the meanest part of the whole game, dangerous and deadly traps. In the beginning, the traps where the biggest reason why I die, but after a while you get an eye for the hidden traps so you can prepare yourself for it.
The game itself: You have to run around, kill enemies and bosses, collect stuff, solve puzzles and avoid traps...but all that in a really cool way. I didn't played this game for a long time, but I already love it. Yes you die often, but this game never gets lame or something, you always want to continue an go further.
You can compare La-Mulana with Spelunky, the basic is nearly the same, but La-Mulana has more details in it and you can save where you want and don't have to repeat the same level over and over again just because you die, so I definitely prefer La-Mulana.
The graphic: It looks like the graphic of an retro game (maybe NES or something) but I think this makes the game just more lovelier. In my opinion it is the perfect look for the game because it has so much charm...but everybody sees it differently :)
The music: Damn this music is just awesome. It fits perfectly to the whole games scene. It has that special something you want to listen to, really just great.
If you don't get insane immediately only because you die often, don't need super great graphic and want to play a different kind of game, then this one here is the game you looking for.
