Hey hey, everyone, here is our Let’s Play/First Impressions of Ikenie. This challenging puzzle game is so similar to Dark Souls that it gave us flashbacks! 😉 Seriously, from the atmosphere to the challenge, there are a lot of similarities. And what’s real awesome is that most of it works. The game itself is a lot of fun and forces you to think your way through the stages–just hacking and slashing will get you killed.

That’s not to say there aren’t things that can be improved. The opening boss fight (which we repeated about eight times) has too high of a difficulty curve, with the skeleton mage causing way too much damage for a starting enemy. The hit range of the weapons need to be a bit wider too, giving a little more grace to the player to score a hit.

But otherwise, there wasn’t much we could find to be critical about. This is a solidly put together game that is both fun and interesting, and worth the time of someone who likes the Dark Souls genre of game. Kudos to the creator for the obvious effort put into this!
