“La Mulana delivers on a fun, challenging and rewarding exploration experience that is presented with polish.”
Greenlit Gaming

"Beyond the seemingly insurmountable wall of challenge, La-Mulana is a brilliant title that exceeds in just about every category. Art, music, breadth of content, game length -- La-Mulana gets the highest marks. But there's simply no denying that the difficulty, as fair as Nigoro purports it to be, is a major deterrent. If you are willing to suffer, though, you will be blown away. I guarantee it."
8/10 – Destructoid

"Nigoro’s La-Mulana is like Castlevania: Symphony of The Night spliced with Dark Souls. It is long, it is tough, it is involved and it has puzzles that’ll make your brain bleed."
93/100 – Indie Game Mag

"I look back on my time with La-Mulana with plenty of frustration at the challenging platforming, enemies, bosses, and puzzles. But I’m also amazed at the time, thought, and talent that went into creating this experience. There may never be another game like La-Mulana."
8.5/10 – Game Informer

À propos du jeu

Will you fall prey to deadly traps or unravel the secrets of LA-MULANA?

LA-MULANA is an “Archaeological Ruin Exploration Action Game” in which you search inside ancient ruins, seeking out the “Secret Treasure of Life” – which sleeps in the sprawling ruins of “LA-MULANA” and is said to be the beginning of all civilization. Apart from the plethora of traps lying in wait to stop intruders, there are also monsters on the prowl, protecting the ruins. Head for the innermost depths of the ruins while solving a variety of mysteries, fending off monsters, and disarming traps.
Forging ahead will be no simple task – the further into the depths you reach, the more difficult the mysteries become.

The first run of NIGORO games. Created back in the creators’ “amateur” days and renowned worldwide, it was remade for WiiWare. This is the PC port version.
This game, which originated from the creators’ wish to play the sort of games that enthralled them back in the day – only with more volume – was created based on “that old-time feeling”. The operability and difficulty level are certainly not “new school”. However, this game is highly recommended to gamers seeking out that feeling of total immersion that allows you to go full-on head-to-head with a game not found in somewhat lighter fare.

Please consider this game to be our challenge to you.

Play through the entire game till your fingers bleed, give up and throw it out the window, or get help from strategy guides. The choice is yours.

Très bon jeu qui donne vraiment l'impression de visiter des ruines antiques avec une trame de fond intéressante avec de nombreuses références à la mythologie de diverses cultures, une grosse durée de vie et des décors variés. Mais alors...qu'est-ce qu'il est dur!

Déjà au niveau des mobs, c'est un peu du Dark Souls en 2D. La vie descend très vite et il n'y a pas beaucoup de moyen de la régénérer donc il va falloir faire très attention. Les (très) nombreux boss et sous boss seront souvent synonymes de ragequits!

Mais si il n'y avait que ça, ça pourrait encore passer. Sauf que le jeu est parsemé d'énigmes et si c'est entre autre ce qui lui donne sa saveur, elles sont souvent compliquées (et en anglais bien sûr) et un indice trouvé dans une zone peut très bien ne servir que dans une autre zone débloquée bien après! A vous de vous en souvenir ou au moins de vous rappeler de son existence pour le consulter à nouveau (le jeu permet quand même d'en enregistrer quelques uns). J'avoue m'être très souvent servi du wiki sans quoi j'aurais tourné en rond pendant des heures pour certains passages et je n'ai plus la patience pour ça.

Bref, un bon jeu mais difficile, vous voilà prévenus!

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 one of the best games ever created. It's the best 15 dollars one could ever spend. In La-Mulana, you play as an archeology teacher named Lemenza Kosugi, and you explore a metroidvania style labrinyth called La-Mulana. La-Mulana is not an easy game, but not in the conventional manner. The puzzles are the hard part, not the combat (though the combat does have some pretty hard battles it's nothing compared to the puzzles). La-Mulana asks an awful lot of the player's critical and abstract thinking skills and is best played with a notebook next to you jotting down connections between what a puzzle tablet tells you and how it relates to another area of the ruins you find later. It's best to take a record of every tablet you come across that seems like it could answer a puzzle, as it cuts back on backtrack time.

Once you get into the groove of La-Mulana, it becomes an experience so ridiculously satisfying and detailed that it's hard not to fall in love. The first hours will throw you off, but once you learn to think in riddles like the game wants you to, its absolutely wonderful. La-Mulana is a game made entirely of 'Aha!' moments that happen every 15 minutes.

If I were to sum up La-Mulana, I'd do it like so.
La-Mulana is a game that will reject you, kick you in the face, spit on you, laugh at your failure, giggle as it throws cryptically worded puzzles at you, and congratulate you for finally figuring out how its cryptic puzzles operate. And then it makes the puzzles much more complex and laughs at you again.

I will warn that La-Mulana is not a game for the impatient gamer. The game is around 40-45 hours long, and much of that time will be spent in anguish that you're missing a crucial detail of a puzzle or fail to comprehend a sentence. If you're not willing to sit down and understand how the game works, it's going to be an absolutely terrible experience for you. It's not going to be fun at all. If you're the type of gamer who doesn't like often obtuse directions, then La-Mulana will be infurating and you'll probably trash it within 4 hours.

But I implore you to stick with it. It's ♥♥♥♥ing great. Better than Super Metroid great, and it takes an awful lot to be better than Super Metroid.

Play it.
