ENDER LILIES is a dark fantasy 2D action RPG about unraveling the mysteries of a destroyed kingdom. On this sorrowful journey, encounter horrific enemies against whom a moment of inattention could be fatal. Overcome these hardships and seek the truth with the help of fallen knights.
Now I make no secret I’m a big fan of the old school 2D side scrolling platformers and love playing them in their many different guises, Ender Lilies is definitely different but in a real good way.
You play as Lily, a small child who can call upon your spirit companions to help you against the Blights that lurk around the many levels.
At first it took a while to get used to the controls as they aren’t configured as most PC games seem to be, so a few clicks of random keys was needed before I set off to get a feel of what does what. The game itself is immersive from the start with an indepth story that is told throughout with its various cutscenes and dialogue telling the story.
The eerie feel to the overall game really makes you feel fully invested into the story and grabbed into the game from the start, it isn’t a game that just clicks straight away, you do have to work with it and have patience but persevere and the spoils are there, in true metroidvania style the more you put into the game the more you get out of it.
As you go through the many different levels via the different passages you encounter various creatures, or badguys we can call them, each getting more difficult to defeat as you go calling on your spirit friends to help you when needed, the combat itself is good with lots of blood on show slightly weird how the main protagonist sent to wipe these out is a young girl but hey all power to her, she definitely knows how to kick some ass.
All in all I found Ender Lilies an enchanting tale with a dramatic graphical style, well worth checking out if you’re into metroidvanias with a difference, I would definitely recommend taking a look.
Graphics and Sound
The graphic style of Ender Lilies is definitely unique with its dramatic styling and tones. The graphics of when Lily calls in her spirit allies to assist are amazing and plenty of blood in the combat, the game worlds are very well put together and thought out all looks great.
The soundtrack is great, definitely adds to the overall feeling of the game. The in game sounds are great and give an overall magical feel to the game.
To summarise my thoughts of Ender Lilies: Quietus of The Knights, I enjoyed the overall experience at times it edged on the difficult but overall an enjoyable gaming experience.
Verdict-Out of 5🌟
I give Ender Lilies: Quietus of The Knights a decent score of 3🌟 a good overall gaming experience.
