Recensies

"Voorbij de schijnbaar onoverkombare uitdaging is La-Mulana een briljante titel die in zowat elke categorie succesvol is. Graphics, muziek, de hoeveelheid inhoud, de lengte van het spel -- La-Mulana ontvangt de hoogste punten. Maar het is niet te ontkennen dat de moeilijkheid, ook al noemt Nigoro het eerlijk, een grote afknapper is. Als je bereid bent om te lijden, zul je versteld staan. Ik beloof het."
8/10 – Destructoid

"Nigoro’s La-Mulana lijkt op een kruising tussen Castlevania: Symphony of The Night en Dark Souls. Het is lang, het is moeilijk, het is diepgaand, en het heeft puzzels die je hersenen zullen doen bloeden."
93/100 – Indie Game Mag

"Ik kijk terug naar mijn tijd met La-Mulana met veel frustratie vanwege de uitdagende platformsecties, vijanden, bazen en puzzels. Maar ik sta tegelijkertijd ook versteld door de tijd, gedachten en het talent die in het maken van deze ervaring gestoken zijn. Er zal misschien nooit meer een spel als La-Mulana komen."
8.5/10 – Game Informer

Info over het spel

Word je een slachtoffer van de dodelijke vallen of ontrafel je de geheimen van LA-MULANA?


LA-MULANA is een “archeologisch ruïne-verkennend actiespel” waarin je in eeuwenoude ruïnes zoekt naar de “Geheime Schat van het Leven” – die binnen in de ruïnes van “LA-MULANA” is verborgen en wordt vermoed de oorsprong van alle beschavingen te zijn. Buiten een weelde aan vallen die op binnendringers wachten, lopen er ook monsters rond, die de ruïnes beschermen. Ga richting de binnenste dieptes van de ruïnes terwijl je mysteries oplost, monsters verslaat en vallen onschadelijk maakt. Verder komen zal geen makkelijke taak zijn – hoe dieper je de ruïnes ingaat, hoe moeilijker de mysteries zullen worden.


De eerste creatie van NIGORO. Gemaakt in de “amateur”-dagen van de ontwikkelaar en wereldwijd befaamd, ontving het spel een remake voor WiiWare. Dit is de PC-overzetting. Dit spel, dat voortkwam uit het verlangen van de makers om het soort spellen dat ze vroeger leuk vonden weer te kunnen spelen – alleen met meer inhoud – werd gemaakt gebaseerd op “dat ouderwetse gevoel”. De besturing en het moeilijkheidsniveau zijn zeker niet “modern”. Maar dit spel wordt sterk aanbevolen aan gamers die op zoek zijn naar dat gevoel van totale diepgang waardoor het echt voelt alsof je het tegen het spel opneemt, een gevoel dat niet voorkomt in makkelijkere spellen.


Beschouw dit spel als onze uitdaging aan jou.


Speel door het hele spel heen totdat je vingers bloeden, geef op en gooi je computer het raam uit, of lees een gids voor hulp. De keuze is aan jou.

This game man, I had a lot of fun with it. If you want to play a metroidy style game that has tons of puzzles and riddles and such to solve? This game is something you should seriously pick up.

If you don't want to take notes/screenshots/etc though? You should probably look for another game. For the most part, all of the puzzles are pretty fair, but there are a few that kinda made me go "...really?"

If you're looking for a good challenge, I can not recommend this game enough. My only regret is that I didn't hear about it soon enough to get in on the kickstarter for the sequel they're working on.

That said, I admit to getting frustrated at the very end and succumbed to having a friend give me a few tips xD After 90 hours I was just ready to be done, ya know? It was kinda frustrating, but as a whole, I still love the hell outta this game <3

If you've ever wanted a game where you absolutely need a pen and notepad to keep track of clever and well thought out clues you find on your adventure, this is for you.
With that said the game is a huge challenge that many wont make it through. You will get stuck on a boss, you will get hopelessly lost, you will be thinking of clues when you're not even exploring.
La-Mulana offers a truly great and fulfilling gameplay experience to any player that dares enter.

The is a remake, the original is out there for free.

La-Mulana is a game. It sounds stupid, but it has everything I personally need in a game. But getting into La-Mulana is not easy for people who are not into Metroidvanias. The riddles are hard. The controls are somewhat hard to learn at the beginning, but if you're getting a hang on it, it's not a big deal. Consider playing the game without a guide for the first time. Even though it's hard to know what you need to do next, it feels rewarding as soon as you hear that beautiful chime of the Shell Horn. What are you waiting for? Get the game and go, explore the gigantic ruins of La-Mulana.

Your usual Metroidvania platformer on the outside, much more inside.

La-Mulana is extremely hard. Not even do you require good platforming skills, but you also need to be good at puzzle solving. Taking notes on your adventure is highly recommended, even if some things don't seem to be important.

With that being said about the game, let's go a little more into detail:

Story: There's barely anything to say here. You play as Lemeza Kosugi and explore ancient ruins. You find a few people close to the ruins, but only talk to their elder ever so often, he provides some advice, and later explains a few things. But there barely is more to say about the plot. But there's a lot of additional lore, and nearly every single area of the ruins has their own story to tell, if you're careful around your surroundings. After some game time, you find out that you have to kill the 8 guardians and apparently the "Mother", and that's about all you get as your target.

Gameplay: Lemeza Kosugi controls pretty precisely, once you get the hang of it. Only downside is that if you walk as you jump, you can't control the jump at all anymore. If you jump while standing still it's possible though, so once you get used to it, it's okay.
Over the course of the game, you'll find different upgrades, such as a double jump, stronger attacks, new weapons and sub-weapons. The usual things you can expect from a Metroidvania.
There are no lifes, once you die, it's game over. The only way to refill your HP is by either resting in the hot springs, or collecting a certain amount of life orbs, and once that life orb meter fills completely, your HP are filled up completely, and your orb meter is back to 0. You also need to collect more orbs the more HP you have.
There is no such thing as Experience Points and level ups, the only way to get more HP is to find their respective upgrades.
The normal enemies, and the areas aren't too difficult, especially once you get the ability to teleport, and you can always teleport back to the first area and refill your HP in the hot springs, though it is a little annoying.
Speaking of teleporting, you can teleport to certain checkpoints, where you can also save your game, pretty early in the game, so it helps moving through the ruins, since backtracking is also quite a thing here.
There are many mini- and mainbosses, and most of them are really, really challenging.
Enemies also drop gold, and you actually need it to buy necessary items in the game.

Those are your usual metroidvania things, but there's more here:
First of all, you've got a virtual computer with you. and as you play you find software for it. You can only activate a few softwares at once. Those softwares allow simple things such as having a map, or being able to read the ancient language, up to helpful things as having more invincibility frames after being hit, or doing more damage with certain weapons.
Then there are puzzles... They start off from rather simple things as destroying walls to reach new objects or your usual switch puzzles... up to things like understanding the ancient language partly yourself. And that's rather difficult. And saying any more would be spoiling too much. Let me just say, some of the puzzles can be extremely cryptic, and will take some time to figure out, especially because you need to solve nearly all of them to finish the game.

Graphics: Nothing special, but it all looks very well done in the 16-bit style the game is.

Sound: The background music is very nice and sets the tone for each area and situation. The sound effects aren't anything special, they're okay.


The game will probably take about 30-40 hours in your first playthrough if you don't look anything up.
So, if you like the genre in any way, I'd recommend to try La-Mulana at least out for the rather cheap price!

this is a fun game that's hard (not too hard) and kind of obtuse at times but it has an excellent soundtrack, fun movement and a nice atmosphere. i'd recommend it if you're in the market for a metrovania and for some reason you haven't played this yet

A very hard, very deep and very fun metroidvania. I've never seen another game in this genre as close to perfection as this.

Be warned though, some puzzles can be very, VERY obtuse and often puzzles will have components in completely unrelated areas to that in which you are solving a puzzle.

Of course, this game makes no secret of reveling in unfair and brutal design. May God have mercy on your soul if you attempt the Hell Temple on Hard mode...
