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.
