The Messenger Free Download (v2.0.4 & ALL DLC)
As a demon army besieges his village, a young ninja ventures through a cursed world, to deliver a scroll paramount to his clan’s survival. What begins as a classic action platformer soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor. Man… I want to give this a positive. First part, it’s a great time! I haven’t finished the “second half”, but does it nosedive. I admire the idea, but execution is way off. If you can get it for cheap, you can get your money’s worth for the first “half” and maybe you’ll like the second half. SPOILERS!!!! Traversal and backtrack is so tedious and boring. Here are some problems: Warp points are inconvenient locations Exploration is a chore because the great action levels need to be handled every time you go through them. It makes it super annoying to continuously do platforming challenges back and forth and back and forth looking for the thing you’re allowed to do. This is a very interesting, well made platformer, that becomes a Metroidvania. Initially I was Just OK with it because it was just a 2D platformer. However, about 1/3 of the way though the game it becomes a full-fledged Metroidvania. The writing is quite witty as well. If you are a fan of platformers or Metroidvania’s give this game a try.

A good Retro-Platformer with genuinely hilarious moments and dialogues as well as an amazing twist midway through the story for the people who haven’t watched the trailer like me, at first I was blown away by it but later put off by the amount of backtracking I had to do through the same areas which was introduced in the first half of the game, still Its boss fights and OST are its saving graces. Optional challenges like collecting power seals are a good way to test your skills, not gonna lie some of them were pain in the arse to collect. The thing I most enjoyed in this was the conversations between the shopkeeper and the protagonist, what an amazing guy <3. The free DLC was just as awesome. A very fun platformer with very tight controls, an engaging progression system, and hilarious (and sometimes quite poignant) dialogue. A hard recommend from me. I originally got the game for free through Epic games a long time ago, and went in totally blind, so the mechanic absolutely blew my mind. If you’ve scrolled this page, it’s probably too late to go in that blind, but just know I loved the game so much I went and bought it here after playing it once through.
