The Straight (Jacketed) Story: Lylian

By John Walker on December 22nd, 2010 at 11:27 am.

Last month I mentioned Lylian, a very strange-looking side-scrolling platformer about a girl in an asylum who imagines her way out. There’s now a demo of it, so you can see what you make of the straight-jacketed oddity. Episode 1 is now released, and there’s no doubt that it’s packed with original ideas. Very, very strange ideas. The big concern does appear to be the combat, which is choppy and unsatisfying. But the environments are certainly intriguing enough to make it worth checking out.

    I really liked it. Well, up until the point where you get stamped on. Then I really did get stamped on. Talk about difficulty spike. I still haven’t completed it.

    As Out Reach said: sounds like Zack Synder’s latest movie…

    It was on sale at gamersgate when I bought it (and still is now that I look), it looks good and there are a couple of sections with some platforming and use of the characters powers which are nice, but the main problem is the combat, its not bad but every time you get into a fight its dragged out for far too long. I can see myself buying the next episode but the combat needs to take a back seat to platforming and that cool underwater power.
