Andres from Twinfinite writes, "Difficulty varies wildly in video games nowadays from the dramatically easy to the punishingly difficult. Still, you can beat most games of the current generation… except La-Mulana. Well, I couldn’t beat it, try as I might. There are games nowadays that hold your hand when you seem to have been lost for hours or have died a set number of times; La-Mulana is not one of those games. This game grabs your hand instead and breaks your thumb for fun, just like the old days. In its core gameplay and presentation, this 2-D platformer from the sinister minds at NIGORO plays and looks like a tough-as-nails games from back in the day, when developers weren’t afraid of making you cry. I tried to beat game, really, I did, but I decided I had seen quite enough at some point. Now, at this point, you now know this game can be extremely difficult, but is it any good?"
