Recensioni

“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


LA-MULANA is an “Archaeological Ruin Exploration Action Game,” bringing the classic appeal of adventure with the punishing difficulty of retro-inspired gaming. 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. Unfortunately, priceless artifacts very rarely give themselves up easily.

Apart from the plethora of traps lying in wait, 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 guardians of LA-MULANA do not take their job lightly.

LA-MULANA on Steam is the PC port version of the acclaimed remake for WiiWare. One of the first NIGORO games, LA-MULANA was originally created back in the creators’ “amateur” days and has been renown worldwide.
This game was created based on “that old-time feeling.” The creators wished to play the sort of games that enthralled them back in the day, only with more volume. 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 terms.

Coming up on it's ninth birthday, LA-MULANA continues to captivate, frustrate and annihilate new and old players alike. Whether it's your first time falling into the ruins or your 900th of getting decimated by Mushussu, we thank you for donning your explorer's hat, hoisting the whip and diving into our game.

Good luck. You're going to need it.

This game is amazing. As a kid, 30 years ago, I would have been totally obsessed, taking notes, drawing maps, everything. Now, with a ridiculous backlog to get through, even beating it using a walkthrough was a challenge, and still a worthy experience.

I could write ten thousands of walls of text to describe how amazing this game is.

Do you like metroidvania like games? Do you like puzzle heavy games? Do you like dificult games? Then, La-Mulana is for y ou.

The game keeps crashing on the final boss.
Truly, one of La-Mulana's most fiendish puzzles.

Una gemma di livello assoluto, stile metroidvania offre un livello di sfida tecnica, pratica e soprattutto mentale che i giocatori normalmente si sognano in Metroid o Castlevania.

Gli enigmi sono tosti ma (quasi) mai impossibili o scorretti.
Gli ambienti e il mondo di gioco è immersivo e stilisticamente notevole.
La colonna sonora da sola vale l'acquisto del gioco.
Boss, Guardiani e nemici comuni estremamente vari, ciascuno con pattern, design, IA e un ruolo diverso, i Guardiani in particolari sono, ciascuno, memorabili.
Interazioni fra personaggi, nonostante il carattere secondario delle stesse in un gioco del genere, esilaranti e un bel break dall'esplorazione.

In sostanza, se siete giocatori seri, questo titolo è obiettivamente imperdibile, un gioco da consacrare nella storia degli Indie e immancabile nelle librerie ludiche dei videogiocatori.

great, but brutally difficult. try to resist the urge to consult guides and instead think like the archaeologist you play as; write everything down as you progress and piece it all together.

Sarò breve: questo gioco rappresenta, secondo i miei standard, il metroidvania più bello e difficile a cui io abbia mai giocato.
Enigmi impossibili, salto a senso unico (Nel senso che non puoi spostarti una volta iniziato il salto), backtracking (UN SACCO di backtracking), tutto. Di questo gioco mi è piaciuto tutto.
Da avere assolutamente se amate i Metroidvania.

It may be just the thing if your into Indiana Jones, finding crazy and mythical creatures that simply boggles the mind. Falling into traps and nearly making it out by the skin of your teeth.

La-Mulana is BALLS HARD and it is not for those who don't know how to stay on track or easily lost. Take notes people or if you fail at that. Play a guide....That is if you ever get stumped. This game does not hold your hand and you shouldn't expect it to. Your a professor. An Archeologist. A professional....Well, not as Professional as your dad but you will get there in time.

Collect relics across your journey deep within the ruins. Power your character up by destroying enemies and collecting green orbs left behind. Only way to heal a wounded adventurer in this game is a one simple hotspring and trust me. If your a newbie at this game. You bet your ♥♥♥♥♥♥ that its going to be the #1 spot to go to when your one hit away from death.

Also don't be ashamed at saving alot. You are going to have to. You see further into the game about 30 mins in you would get your first relic that lets you teleport to the Save Points Tablets hidden throughout the game. That too will be a helpful item to have.

Also...Melbruk is a hottie. Even if she is older then you by a millenia.

Gave up at what is probably the halfway point. It's balls-difficult and the puzzles are maddeningly obscure. Somehow, it's all still charming enough to make it a good time for awhile, but eventually I just stopped. I'll probably come back to it at some point, but it is only recommended with reservations. Sixty-ish hours in and I feel like I've barely scratched the surface.

You'll do everything you can not to Google solutions to tough spots... then you'll break down and do it anyway. Then you'll quit for long enough that you can't even remember where you left off and it becomes difficult to even use Google to cheat.

You'll genuinely love it. Until it breaks you. Then you'll still feel like saying nice things about it, but you may not want to play anymore. Recommended for the smartest folks in the room and people who absolutely hate themselves.

La Mulana è difficile come l’inferno, crudele, sadico e dannatamente old-school: salti millimetrici, tempismo da orologiaio svizzero, labirinti complicati e decine su decine di enigmi e segreti da risolvere vi accompagneranno fin dai primi minuti di gioco, dove probabilmente rimarrete spaesati cercando di capire cosa diamine dovrete fare. Non dimenticatevi che, però, in tutto questo macello voi siete degli archeologi-investigatori, quindi ricordatevi di prendere appunti (no, non sto scherzando, carta e penna salvano la vita) e segnarvi luoghi importanti, frasi criptate e disegni particolari. La quantità di cose da fare contemporaneamente è a dir poco spaesante, tanto da render possibile l’eventualità di girare per interi minuti (vorrei dire “ore” ma poi vi spaventate) prima di avere una sorta di illuminazione divina o magari scoprire per puro fattore “C” un passaggio segreto per chissà quale motivo nascosto in mezzo al nulla. Se poi siete uomini crudeli potete sempre dare una sbirciata a varie guide e soluzioni online, ma sappiate che esiste un girone dell’inferno dedicato a coloro che leggono i walkthrough.

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.

A livello di bestemmie, è pari (se non superiore) a Dark Souls, con in più dei difficilissimi rompicapo che ridurranno il vostro cervello ad un budino di materia grigia. E pipistrelli. Tanti pipistrelli. Troppi pipistrelli.
9/10 da avere ad ogni costo.

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.
