One fine day, Eryi went to eat the melon that she had been SO looking forward to... but it was nowhere to be found! Then she noticed a note on the table. She picked it up and read: "Your melon looked delicious, so I took it. From Farta X" Fuming with rage, Eryi set out from her house to get her melon back from Farta.

About This Game

One fine day, Eryi went to eat the melon that she had been SO looking forward to... but it was nowhere to be found! Then she noticed a note on the table. She picked it up and read: "Your melon looked delicious, so I took it. From Farta X"
Fuming with rage, Eryi set out from her house to get her melon back from Farta.

Eryi's Action is a 2D ‘trapformer’ by developer Xtal Sword that is visually inspired by Super Mario, but has gameplay akin to games like I Wanna Be the Guy. Don’t be fooled by its adorably charming looks – this game abounds in traps and wants you to die! However, where IWBTG was murderously difficult, Eryi's Action is additively challenging and FUN!
Trap placement is often laugh-out-loud funny and seriously engaging. Some traps simply need to be learned to avoided, but others are puzzles that will require your skill and wits to beat. Either way, Eryi’s action delivers laughs, frustrating and satisfaction & all for just $4.99!

Features:
  • 12 action-packed stages & boss fights!
  • Adorably charming world & characters!
  • Fiendishly cunning traps!
  • It’s okay to fail! Autosave has your back!
  • FUN! You'll die a lot, but you WILL go back for more!
  • 32 achievements!

Genuinly interesting puzzle / platforming ideas that are too often bogged down by inconvienent controls and parts that are more frustrating than fun. The first 15-30 minutes are funny and interesting but soon you'll reach a puzzle that doesn't make sense or requires near pixel perfect timing to complete and its just not fun anymore. If you like this type of game, I do think its worth buying, but maybe wait until its on sale.

I'd recommend this game to anyone who doesn't feel that every game must be beatable for the first time without dying. Because, that's just not what Eryi's Action is all about.

Before you buy / play this game, you should know what you're getting into.

This is a troll puzzle / platformer. It will kill you as most traps you don't see coming until they're sprung on you, and then you need to figure out a way past them. Most of the time, this is easy. Sometimes, the solutions could stomp you for a while - I ended up using a walkthrough to get past a few traps.

That said, I found this game quite fun, and the traps funny the first time they killed me. Afterwards, I'd laugh at myself for falling for the same traps over and over after forgetting they're there, while I'd hurry from the checkpoint to the latest revealed trap.

My favorite traps are the multistage ones, where you think you have a way past them, but that just springs another trap :)

P.S. This game is *not* one of those "tough as nails platformers." Some parts are moderately hard, yes, but nothing close to what's required in the likes of Super Meat Boy, They Bleed Pixels, Electronic Super Joy, or Gianna Sisters.

Don't be fooled, this game is as manly as Metal Slug and Contra combined. Your melon-shaped protein and steroids were stolen so now you're gonna unleash the roid-rage at every living and non living unlucky enough to cross you. You'll die hundreds of times but it won't matter, nothing can stop you when you're this pent up. You're so strung out that death phases you for a mere brief repose before you continue tearing a trench through every inch of terrain in between you and the promise of giant burly muscles contained in your melon.

10/10, would laugh at death a hundred more times in order to get big.

This game is evil. It seems to sense when you let your guard down or have come to expect something and then laughs as it springs another clever trap to take yet another life away.

I have no doubt that there is a devious form of artificial intelligence built into every single copy and programmed with the sole motivation of crushing you. It is clearly rewarded with every successful trap as there is no doubt that this game, this evil force, this new form of life(?), is gaining great delight at your every failure and soul crushing death.

I used to think platformers were the one thing I understood. I understand nothing! Up is Left and watch out, cause Down, Down took off and in its place now is Right, Left took Rights place and now I don't know how to climb a ladder!

Play this game, or rather give this game a chance to play you, either way you will almost certainly enjoy it as long as you go in understanding that you are about to be the beaten down, confused, tricked and just when you think its over, just when the goal is in reach, only one step away, you will be afraid to take that step, you will know by then that this game, this evil entity, this surreal and dark form of artificial intelligence is absolutely and without a doubt, out to get you. It's waiting for you to take that step and you realize you can't wait to see what the hell is going to happen next, so you do.

Awesome game!

It's like playing Cat Mario. . . only that you're on drugs and you feel like you're on fire. Because it's hell.

Died at the worldmap

P.S You're doing this for melon. A.Melon.

Remember Mario? It's the same concept only it's more about failing... Just finish the first level.

■Good
1. VERY ♥♥♥♥ING DIFFICULTY
2. Cute Graphics
3. Classical 16bit style BGM

■Sucks

For Masochist, It's very nice game.
But, if you are light gamer, it's very suck game.

Cute game that will troll you with its traps. It'll kill you at every turn. It has influence from Mario including traps everywhere. Think Ghost and Goblins x10 and you have this game in a nutshell.

Prepare to die here more than Dark Souls.
Not recommended for people who rage easily.

Simple put you gotta be cautios cause everything that can, even the most simple thing, will kill you. And the odd part is it's not frustrating but instead really funny. Check it out if you like a challange with variety. BTW the boss battles are really fun

Okay I'm not going to wright a long paragraph about this game because I know no one is going to read it all but to sum it up really quicky... it's very bad. Only thing good about it is it's cute, colourful and kind of good music? Look if your looking for a "fun" rage/hard platformer game then your better off buying "They Bleed Pixels" it's the cute hardcore platformer, The type of game your most likely looking for. Well if your still reading this I'm guessing your still thinking of getting this game. Let me sum up the negative points:

-Horrible Settings (how do you ♥♥♥♥ up settings?)
-Annoying controls
-Bad Hitboxs
-100% about repetition and memorisation.
-Lame comedy.
-Ugly graphics.
-Next to no Controller Support
-Feels unfinished.
-And Just no fun.

I feel this game whould be 90% better if there was more time put into, it really does feel rushed. Maybe if the devs updated this game with nicer looking graphics, Better levels and less cheep deaths then it whould be worth $4.99 bucks. (6.66 in Australia... insert Satan joke here) Anyways this game got made in 2013 so I don't see any update coming ever so you better off just playing "They Bleed Pixels" or just a fash game, because that's what this feels like. A quickly made fash game. (Also maybe think about buying "Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight" and "Shantae and the Pirate's Curse" if you want a cute platformer with a female protagonist)
