“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

Informazioni sul gioco

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.

Ricorda molto vecchie perle del genere passate come Super Metroid o Symphony of the Night ma forse è il più grosso e hardcore metroidvania\platformer che esista: un'ottima longività (mi ha portato via 38 ore per finirlo), difficile (se pensate che Dark Souls sia arduo, eviate questo come la peste) e gratificante allo stesso tempo. è sicuramente uno di quei giochi che non consiglieri a tutti, dato che non è come la maggiorparte dei giochi degli ultimi anni che ti tengono per mano fino alla fine, no la-mulana è un mix di puro sadismo giapponese con enigmi che richiedono soluzioni con indizi criptici e occultati per tutte le antiche rovine, la struttura stessa dei livelli che cerca constantemente di ingannarti (o di ucciderti nel peggioro dei casi).
Uno dei giochi più ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥i che mi sia capitato sottomano, se pensate che l'aver completato Dark Souls faccia di voi dei veri uomini, bhe non avete visto ancora niente.

This game is more than meets the eye. I'm about 4-5 hours into the game and I found myself still coming back for more. I've taken a look at some reviews...good ones and bad ones. I can only agree with good ones, why?
Most of the bad reviews don't take into account that this game is a restyling of the old La-Mulana for NES, and they make some critical errors.

I've read people complaining about the fact that the game should be playied with some sort of guide or the fact that the game lacks of in-depth guides on the net.

The last thing that I'd want in a game when I'm an explorer visiting unknown ruins is to know in advance what I'm getting into. In the steam community, however, I've seen some basic and advanced guides released by fan of the game, but as one of them and as the guides themselves states I highly suggest you to not read them unless you have no idea on what to do.

This game is not meant to be easy at all, there are plenty of secrets and deadly traps that will kill you in an unfair way...still you'll be coming back for more and eventually you'll get better at guessing what'll kill you and what'll net you rewards such as weapons and artifacts.

Also, when you resolve an enigma you won't ear nothing unless you have the artifact that'll let you know that something happened...why? Because it's more fun this way and more challenging.

You never feel like the game is broken...sometimes it's just incredibly hard, but still if you try harder and look in the right places you have everything it takes to figure it out by yourselves the problems and kick the ♥♥♥ of the ruins malevolent inhabitants.

Another big issue from what I've read is control system...I have pretty much to agree on this one, the controls are clunky, still, they're not broken...after a while is easy to get used to them and at that point to gain complete control over the unfortunate Lemeza.

To wrap this up, you have nothing to fear...take a chance, brace yourselves and step into the ruins of La-Mulana. Your skills, your patience and your intelligence will be tested. If you seek a challenge this is the game for you. If you are new to the genre try this game and think of it as how a good retro adventure game should be.

As I said before, I still find myself coming back for more...it's rare for me nowadays and I'm hella happy of this since it really means that what I bought was as fun and challenging as I'd expected.

I'm definitely writing too much, so I'll really end this with a last sentence this time:
I suggest you this game, I have no regrets in buying it and I'm confident that if you like challenges or old-style games you won't too.

Have fun, enjoy your stay at La-Mulana.

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...

La Mulana is.... an unfortunate game. It is very interesting and has a lot of potential, but it commits many gaming sins that can't be overlooked. This is a NES era kind of game that is designed to force you to use some kind of guide when playing it (think castlevania 2). If you respond to this, don't just say 'the game is supposed to be hard'. Dark Souls is my favorite game; I know the difference between a game that is difficult because it's designed well, and a game that is difficult because it is designed badly.

-Very little feedback is given for many of the puzzles. Many times if you solve a puzzle, the game simply doesn't show you what exactly you unlocked, or where. Sometimes solving a puzzle in one area will unlock a door or something in an entirely different area.

-Although clues are given, many aren't helpful or refer to something in a later area. Once you get to that area, there is no indication that you needed to use a clue from earlier.

-There are several points in the game where no clues are given for progression. Several times it is necessary to walk through illusionary walls, or break floors/walls to continue, with no indication you need to do so. You are left jumping around constantly attacking everything in the hope you will accidentally solve a 'puzzle'.

-The above point wouldn't be a problem if the game didn't frequently PUNISH you for trial and error. Yes, there are many rooms in the game where, if you attack random walls, lightning strikes your character and does a substantial amount of damage. The game teaches you quickly not to attack random things, but then at other times the only way to continue is to know where to do it. I have died many times, just attacking random walls to see if they would crumble, only to find out that I was indeed supposed to attack a specific part of a wall; but no indication was given to do so.

-Unfair instant death traps and rooms that you simply become 'stuck' in. There are many rooms that just kill you, and other ones that just trap you, forcing you to restart from your last save if you don't have specific items.

-Some puzzles don't reset. Make a mistake and you can never get the item. There are only a few of these, but there isn't any indication that the puzzle will be like this. Once again, the game punishes trial and error. Fortunately, I think they only do this with non-essential items.

-The game doesn't control well enough for some of the fast-paced action segments they throw at you. Boss battles typically aren't hard for any reason other than your character moves slowly and doesn't control in the air well.

If anyone ever tells you that they beat this game without ever consulting a guide or asking for help, they are lying. I really wanted to like this game; thematically it is amazing, and I love this style of metroidvania action-adventure. I find myself being forced to use a guide all too often, and it really ruins the gaming experience (seriously, some of these 'puzzles' are just impossible unless you know exactly what to do beforehand). If you really like games like castlevania 2, or don't mind having a guide open during your playthrough, then La Mulana might be for you. Otherwise, stay away.
