User Review Information

A+++ hack. Very enjoyable experience!

Reviewed By: NetherSpecter on 18 Apr 2021

Overall, the hack was very enjoyable and any Metroidvania should give this a go, especially if you’ve already played the original DoS.

Here are some of my pros and cons, do note that none of the cons take away from the overall experience, just minor nitpicks.

Pros:

  • Excellent sprite work for Juste, beautifully animated and colored.
  • The sped up movement speed for Juste feels really nice coupled with how fluent the whip feels to use in game.
  • The map was resigned subtly but enough to feel different entirely.

Cons:

  • Some of the music choices didn’t really fit, but that’s just my taste.
  • Weapon Synthesis could have been better also. Some of the weapons could be found in game. In my opinion, there should have ONLY been exclusive weapons only available via Weapon Synthesis.
  • Succubus Glitch still exists, not really a con but it can really take away from a part in the game which I will not spoil.
