Lila's Sky Ark looks and sounds terrific, and whilst pretty easy to complete, is a decent little diversion with some unique aspects that will provide a gentle and strange diversion from reality.

At first, Lila’s Sky Ark made me think I was getting sick of indies in this style in general, not just platformers. But the more I played it, I realized its weak opening was hiding a real gem. Once you dig into it, Lila’s Sky Ark is full of interesting characters, sweet story beats, and engaging gameplay.

Lila's Sky Ark is a quirky game that sets out to be different. There's an interesting world to traverse, puzzles to solve, and many characters to meet, though it can be a little too odd at times. It looks great, though, and if you're looking for something unique and creative, you'll find it here.

A top-down fantasy adventure where you throw things at a limited range of monsters in a stiff world.

Lila's Sky Ark has an enjoyable gameplay, but it's about the only good aspect of the game, as the vague story didn't entice me to advance any further.

Nothing in Lila's Sky Ark is offensive or frustrating to the player. Still, likewise, nothing is remarkable or exemplary. Our adventure through the beautiful world of Lila regularly leaves us to think of the potential that this game would have, if it have been studied or developed more deeply in regards to its challenges, mechanics and its a more appealing story. As such, this game ends up being a harmless way to spend a few hours, without anything that significantly distinguishes it from other games of the genre.

As such, when Lila's Sky Ark hits that sweet spot of cerebral thinking and abstract design it is a lovely game to play. There are moments where it does struggle, particularly in combat-heavy sections that don't lead to its boss fights, but overall there is plenty of fun to be had, and many secrets to find.

Lila's Sky Ark is a game that catches the eye with its more psychedelic world-building style. It is a very curious game in its narrative and gameplay proposal, but unfortunately its clear artificiality weakens the experience considerably. I recommend the title to anyone who wants a charming and relatively short abstract adventure that strays a little from the most typical.

Lila’s Sky Ark has many qualities of a masterpiece; the music is beautiful; the visuals are delightful, but it fumbles with its writing. If Lila’s Sky Ark is a poem, then it’s not a cohesive one. I still don’t know how I feel about Lila or her story; however, I had fun while playing it, and I know I will be listening to the soundtrack for many months. This game is undoubtedly a labor of love. If you want to get lost in a colorful pixel dreamscape, then you’ll feel right at home with Lila on the Rainbow Ark.

Lila’s Sky Ark was more creative than it was memorable. While you can beat the game in less than a dozen hours, you’ll probably spend more just trying to fulfill the final mission. And while I did enjoy wandering around this weird world, ultimately some bad combat decisions and a lack of balance hurt my immersion. If you’re a big fan of action adventure and like games just for the sake of weirdness, I’d still give this a shot. For everybody else, this probably isn’t your game.

Lila’s Sky Ark is an amazing journey that brings Lila’s adventure on our Nintendo Switch. Its colorful world and cool gameplay combine for a great experience, ultimately brought down from excellence by the unsatisfying narrative, culminating in a subpar Epilogue

Lila's Sky Ark is a small metroidvania where the gameplay is simple, its story is complex and difficult to understand. As a highlight, the sound and visual section is wonderful. We are also facing a prequel, so if you liked Resolutiion, Lila's Sky Ark is more than recommended.

A charming, if simple, Zelda-like full of pot throwing and weirdness, Lila’s Sky Ark will fill a few hours, but fails to really differentiate itself in a crowded modern market.
