Momodora 1 & 2

Review #27 – Free Video Game

Momodora 1 & 2

Today, I offer you a 2 x 1 deal: Momodora. Here, you take control of a distressed heroine, braving the dangers of an ancient and evil temple to bring her mother back after she was taken for a human sacrifice.

Both games are shooter plataformers, with twisted passageways and a plethora of colorful enemies. While the first one takes a more “linear” approach to level design (with a few detours for secrets), the second one has a Metroidvania-like structure (non-linear level progression and lots of backtracking to newly accessible areas).

Both games are really enjoyable and I recommend both of them. Now, you may want to go directly to the download links, because the next paragraph is my personal opinion. If you feel like reading it, go ahead:

 Momodora 1 on the left, Momodora 2 on the right.

Even though the second game improves on a lot of things from the first, I can’t help but feel it doesn’t go in the same direction as its predecessor. I’ll talk more about this in my next Babble, all I want to say here is this: I found the first game to be a lot better than the second one. If you are like me, Momodora 2 will disappoint a bit when compared to Momodora 1. It’s still worth playing, though.

EDIT: Here's the Babble.

Disclaimer: I didn’t upload any of the content in the following link. I have downloaded and checked it as I always do. I have even executed it in my own computer and did not experience any kind of problems. But I can’t ensure that it is free of virus and/or malware that my anti-virus programs couldn’t find. That’s the author’s responsibility.
