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!

A hilarious "troll platformer", from the developer of Syobon Action (a freeware game sometimes known as "Cat Mario" on the internet), featuring the same type of gameplay. This game plays out like slapstick comedy in videogame form.

The stages all feature various amusing traps that play with your expectations. There are even bonus traps that you have to go out of your way to find -- they will humiliate you in even more creative, amusing, and memorable ways.

The game's not just silly traps, though. The end of each stage usually features some sort of stage end trap, that you need to defuse or circumvent before being able to finish the stage properly. These become little puzzles -- not too hard to figure out once you realize they're supposed to be puzzles, though.

Boss stages are all rather unique, and may involve more puzzle-solving and also some unexpected genre changes.

You're given an unlimited number of tries to complete the game, though. You start with two lives, and you will probably end up with negative several hundred when you finish the first time.

Unlockables include a playable bonus stage, as well as an extra mode where you have to complete the game with limited lives -- and some changes to the stages, too!

(Disclosure: I acquired this game as part of the Groupees Build a Greenlight Bundle.)

Deep down we all want to be the guy or in this case get our mellon back from thieves. Why Eryi lives in such a deadly neighborhood is the true mystery of this game.

In the style of cat mario, this game is build around hidden traps and unknowable doom to trip up players each time they make forward progress. In regards to that goal 'Eryi's Action' accomplishes it very well with many of the deaths earning laughs the first time they are triggered.

This creates a dilemma in which while this game is great at being a torturous unfair platformer experience that novelty can wear out very quickly resulting in few players bothering to keep going. Not a game I'd recommend you play but one worth watching an LP of.

Eryi is cute.
CUTE!

Anyway, this game is a good choice if you enjoy a challenge. It's true that most of it is trial and error, but there is a lot of skill involved on it, and there are some complex puzzles too.
As many have mentioned, it feels a lot like "Syobon Action", aka "Cat Mario", including some traps used, but that's because it was made by the same developer.

In the end, I don't recommend this game if you can't handle games that are hard or frustrating, otherwise, go for it!

This is a dumb joke game that should be treated as a dumb joke game. It's basically I Wanna Be The Guy or Syobon Action except not really focusing on any actual platforming, just killing you with traps for the lolz. And as a joke game? Generally fine. The weakest moments are when it tries to be an actual game, with a few tricky platforming bits and the first and last boss are just very straightforward and out of place. The distance between checkpoints is always short so it just becomes a matter of learning each section until you can clear it then moving on to the next, and there's no real lives system so no game overs and no frustration. There were a few moments of weirdly glitchy stuff apparently being the intended solution, which I don't really like, but beyond that the traps and puzzles are decently clever. Not the best game ever or anything, and certainly not worth any more than the $5 it sells for, but if you want some laughs at your own expense then sure, go for it.

Hi,
Ok, I purchased this game for myself initially because it looked super cute. So imagine my surprise when I actually played it and it was not fun just frustrating. Now, that's not the worst part. Then I GIFTED this game to one of the people I followed (before I actually played it) and told him to stream it. Long story short, he played it, felt the same way I did, and now he thinks I trolled him.... because of this game. Now look, I like the art of this game, but no disrespect, it's challenging but not in a fair way, and it got me blocked. Yep. So yeah, thumbs down.

Pros:
+ IWBTG-ish "platforming hell"
+ Cute graphics, nice music
+ Good controls

Cons:
- Some traps are way too ridiculous
- The game itself is not very memorable

Let's start with the most obvious part: this game is hard. And I mean RIDICULOUSLY hard. I'm on level 4 and I already have - (minus) 170 lives. So yeah, losing 20-50 or more lives per level is ok here. This is just like IWBTG or some other "platforming hell" games. Insane difficulty is the main focus of "Eryi's Action" and basically that's all what it is about. Once you figure all the traps on level and find out how to avoid them - consider the job 70% done.
Aside from that there's not much to say. Graphics are cute, music and sound are okay, the controls are good. Overall the game is fine, if you played and liked IWBTG I can even recommend you to give "Eryi's Action" a try. Grab it at sales.

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.

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.

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!

Easy to play:
-Walk and die
-Jump and die
-Even you standby, you'll die
-Die in the vase
-Die by fan of the windmill
-You'll die at anytime
Stuck at the first level about three and a half hours, it's over 9000 than Super Mario

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.

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.

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.
