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!

This game is absolutely evil. Everything in this game is out to get you... EVERYTHING, and I absolutely love it. The characters, sound and the overall environment is absolutely adorable while the game is rather difficult. It's the type of game that trolls you with every step. You will walk, die then go back and knowing how you died, find a solution to the problem... only to realize they thought of your solution and that is in itself another death. It really is a puzzle game that uses your death as a method of problem solving, looking for creative ways to find a solution. I may only be 30 minutes in currently but I already adore this game. Just go in prepared that it's going to be an absolute cheap troll to you and treat it more as a puzzle game then a platformer. Well worth the $2.50 I paid for it on Steam sale (normally $5). Be warned the controls are a little odd as they use arrows and Z, X, C which from what I hear is more of a Japanese standard but I believe controllers will work.

By no means the hardest trapformer on offer, but in terms of fun, this one ranks pretty high. Though, that being said, you will go through Hell and back for nothing more than a watermelon. Inanimate objects will betray you. Enemies will appear seemingly out of nowhere. Think outside the box and you'll be done and dusted as quickly as you can help it.

Recommended for anyone with even a little shred of patience or those who loved Syobon Action.

This is a very Frustrating game and not fun at all. Random spikes that show up with no hints they were even there and crap falling down on you that look the same as background stuff...

Note: I bought this early on before there was a Video and before the Difficult tag was added.

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.)

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!

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

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.

What a cute animation, you may think ?? just do not let this cute animation fool you >_<
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
10/10 still play again and again until pass the first level
