Critic Reviews for 8Doors: Arum's Afterlife Adventure
Ultimately, while 8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure is a competent enough addition to the Metroidvania genre, with a decent story and acceptable gameplay, it doesn’t do enough with its potential to rub shoulders with the giants of the field. If you’re mad for these types of games, you can do much worse. However, if you’re only interested in something more unique, this probably isn’t interesting enough to do the job.
8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure is an excellent action-adventure that delivers a satisfying experience by using a few notable influences. Normal combat can become monotonous, but fights against bosses are deeply rewarding, mirrored by the sense of exploration needed to find everything the game has to offer. This is a game that’s perfect for any looking for a charming and unique Metroidvania experience, with added layers of difficulties for veterans of the genre.
A Metroidvania game adapted from old Korean myths. The graphic painted in dark tones and the background of oriental painting created the atmosphere of this work. The genre-specific elements of exploration and farming have been reduced, but the place has been filled with storytelling. It has surprisingly fulfilling boss battles, and is a work with plenty of control fun.
