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.

"Has gag-traps similar to 'IWBTG', but requiring abit less finesse to clear. Memorization is key to getting Eryi to the end of this cute but cruel game."

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!

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.

Holy ♥♥♥♥, this game is hard as ♥♥♥♥. I have broken 4 bones in my right hand from punching the wall over this piece of ♥♥♥♥ game. It's annoying as ♥♥♥♥ and it makes you feel like a pizza ♥♥♥♥, and it goes without saying that it certainly knocked me down more than a few pegs. ♥♥♥♥ this ♥♥♥♥in game.

9/10
Highly recommend.

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.

Everyone who likes puzzle platformers should give this a look. Controls are pretty decent, but don't play on keyboard. Hard to do a short jump instead of a long jump.

Really nice art, pretty decent music. I love the animation and enviornments, they're pretty cute and they work well for what they are I think

You may end up getting frusturated but I never got truly mad, because it always felt like it was my fault I kicked the bucket, basically.

In otherwords. If you don't mind dying a lot and figuring out how to get past things/using your brain, which I assume you have if you read this far, take a look at this game if you like the genre!

the real game is in your head; try keep up with your own suspicions that you imply you can avoid traps, or foresee them. then you may find this game to be more of a puzzle than simply a mario-esque platformer.

playing this that way may result in paranoia and certain brain cell death, and makes the game seems to be one-of-a-kind, instead of simply 'trolling' and 'rage-inducing'.

+1 to cute sprites.

The reviews saying that this is a troll game and that you'll die more than in Dark Souls...are not kidding. To play this you need a patient sense of humor regarding all the traps and weird instances you'll have to make your way through. Personally, it made me think of Youtube users going through a SMW hack or something...especially ProtonJon and the hidden note/music blocks. A short game overall that completely kicked my ♥♥♥, yet in a fun and amusing way. Not sure if I'll bother doing the rest of the achievements but it was fun to playthrough.

Some of the puzzles do take a bit to think through though so remember to BE PATIENT! :D

I lost my soul to this game, it crushed any pride I may once have had and I now feel like I am the most pathetic human being ever to walk upon the Earth.

This game is a masochists wettest dream, and a sadists most powerful torture device. If you're one of these people who always barks out that games aren't challenging enough, this game will change your mind forever, you will never want to play a challenging game again. I regret I was born, but at least I finished it, I died more in this game over 6 hours than I did in Dark Souls for 100 hours. So expect tears of grief and sorrow as the game destroys your soul.

So many ways to die, I now care about looking for ways to die instead of completing the game. 11/10.

Eryi's Action is an unfair 2D platformer Indie game made by Xtal Sword. It got greenlit on Steam 2014.

You play as a fairy. You come home and you notice your watermelon is missing! Someone has stolen it! Your mission is to get it back. Easy, right?

You are very WRONG here sir/madam.

This game is a platformer that will get stuck in your nightmares. Well at the end of the game it is so. I loved the first stages. It was like an anger inside of me each time I died but it was challenging, when you get the puzzles and challenges right you were so happy when you completed them all. It felt like a test, for fun! Later on in the game though, it’s not fun. It’s pure hell.
Even with guides I am still stuck because of my sloppiness and my zero energy left for this game.

I loved the first parts of the games but that was ruined later on. However, it was expected, but I can’t help myself but to put an no to this game. If you are that kind of person who really loves unfair games or want to troll a friend with this game, go on right ahead.

If there is a game with "Artificial Difficulty", then Eryi's Action is the true embodiment of the term. This game reminded me of that custom Mario level where the guy screamed and cried during the experience. The levels are riddled with bottomless pits, hidden blocks, etc. and the guy mentally broke down (exaggerated). The same experience can be found in Eryi. The game tosses traps at you and counts how many lives you lost. You need memorization of the levels in order to clear them. You will cheaply die a lot, memorize the traps, clear a section, rinse and then repeat. Though it's cute to see I got -50 lives, it felt like I didn't truly earn the deaths because the game keeps poking fun at it.

I gave up early in this game because I'm too lazy to memorize each trap per level. For those who seek unfair platforming and get rewarded by exercising your brain, then this game is for you. Otherwise it's sadism that keeps you going. Or masochism.

It's just a glorified cat mario, a couple bits were even copied directly from it. Very disappointing. These kinds of games are awful. Winning is based entirely on trial and error... in a bad way. All the deaths feel really cheap. The game was specifically designed to be that way, it's just not fun. Controls feel kind of sticky. The animation is really shoddy and rough. The humor is so bad, so immature, it feels like it was written by a five year old kid, and considering how immature I am, that's really saying something. I can't really think of anything good to say... I guess the art style is kind of cute... that's about it. Don't waste your money, just go play cat mario.

Awesome game, but the level desinger was a real ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.
This game is hard as my ♥♥♥♥ when im watching pictures of naked girls.
Nice and simple graphics. Strory is so amazing, it needs on somekind of award (NOT!).
After all the game is good, but nothing like simple, child friendly or fun.
I love this ♥♥♥♥.

What NOT to make for a hack to be accepted on SMWCentral - The Game
This game has so many features that would get an SMW hack rejected on SMWCentral, but for this game, this is actually acceptable. We got things like trapped, changed block behaviour and basically many unexpected death traps. And this is exactly what this game is about. It wants you dead. It's like it reads every step you do and when you think a jump is safe, the floor disappears just as you thought you would land. Feels a lot like Syobon Action.
Get this game if you don't mind dying often.
