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 the Game

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!

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!

I own this game twice. Once on Desura and again here on Steam, but if you think that makes it so good I'd buy it twice, no its so awful I'd buy it twice just to warn you all what a terrible death trap of a game it is. Now for starters, I love 2D platformers and side scrollers. I love Mario, Super Meatboy and I've played 'I wanna be the Guy.' Super Meatboy is known to be hardcore and difficult.

This game is just a death trap at a level that isn't fun. Its as if they read documents on how not to make a Mario level and used it to make this game. Such as if an area looks like grass, your typical platform like every other platform, but that just means there could be spikes that jump out. Climb a ladder? Well that triggers spikes to fall on you. Try to hop on an enemy that 30 other enemies that look exactly the same.... it will hop. Think that platform is a platform? Nope you can't walk on it and you go straight through.

It is all about remembering where the traps are and avoiding them. Its not fun. Deaths are constant, too constant to enjoy the game. The music is bad and repetitive, the death sound will cheese-grater on your nerves. This game is not fun. I think certain Internet trolls know its not fun and they talk about how fantastic this game is so you spend your money to buy it and they LOLz.

I didn't find joy in it on Desura and I couldn't find any fun in it on Steam. This is about your endurance. How much can you endure before you quit? There is no joy beating a level. I didn't feel any sense of happiness or joy that it was finally done even when after you ride down the flag pole ala Mario games there are still death traps for you to walk into when you have no control of your character.

If you're into memorization platformers, this game is for you, but I strongly recommend everyone avoid it.

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.
