Embers of Mirrim Reviews
Embers of Mirrim is a gorgeous little title that can be easily overlooked until you actually see it in motion. It has the atmosphere of Journey, with a hint of Ori and the Blind Forest wrapped with scenic landscapes that wouldn’t look out of place in Pandora. The splitting mechanic sets up some fun puzzling sections with a subtle push to ease you into its control system. Combine that with boss battles that you have to think about along with a fantastic musical score and you have a brief but memorable experience that feels nicely at home on the Nintendo Switch.
If you're in the mood for a platformer set in a fantasy world that will challenge your thumb control, offer unique twin stick gameplay, and satisfy the trophy hunter in us all, then Embers of Mirrim is for you. However, the environments will feel run of the mill and “samey” and the puzzles won’t take much thought to solve.
If you’re looking for something that combines both the platforming and puzzling world, whilst trying something a little different, Embers of Mirrim is for you.
Embers of Mirrim is a beautiful looking game with a unique approach to platforming, and outside of the challenge getting a bit frustrating late in the game, it's a solid title worth checking out on the PC, PS4, or Xbox One.
Overall, I’d say Embers of Mirrim isn’t a game that you’d appreciate when you’re looking for good graphics and decent story, but if you’re looking for a platformer title which has unique mechanics, then this this game is just perfect for you.
To my surprise, the game is in the TOP10 personal purchases on the Nintendo Switch this year about the game I didn't hear quite smoothly until news of the forthcoming release on our website, and I think it only played into the hands of the project. Embers of Mirrim turned self-sufficient, interesting and most importantly original platformer, in which is conceived mechanics and cute main character makes you empathize with him, even in the relatively quiet moments of the game, the game is not Russian language, but the text in the game, that is, all the scenes which see the players do not have dialogues. Embers of Mirrim deserve whatever it drew the attention, indeed, so good and kind of projects is less.

Embers of Mirrim is a fantastic platformer. It's beautifully made with nice, crisp controls. The Ember system is a huge highlight that offers challenge and a ton of fun. The puzzles and bosses can be a little challenging towards the later part of the game, but offers a ton of content in the form of platforming, puzzles, boss battles, and secrets to find.
Embers of Mirrim is still a very interesting game that brings some cool ideas to the table. Even though there was some frustrating moments with some of the glyphs and the waterfall section, many of the puzzles and secrets kept me engaged and made me want to see what was next. The developers did a great job of teaching the player the mechanics of the game, as well as steadily infusing new things into the mix so as to keep the proceedings from becoming stale. The story is sparse with zero dialogue, but the game world is unique and beautiful with awesome backgrounds and impressive lighting effects. Finally, the fully orchestrated soundtrack is fantastic throughout. If you're looking for a good game with an attainable Platinum trophy, and you're able to resist the urge to throw your controller at your TV a few times, then Embers of Mirrim is worth a look.
A beautifully fleshed out world full of adventure told in a creative way brings something new and needed in this comeback of the platforming genre.
If you want a challenge, this is the game you are looking for, remember, one does not simply complete Embers of Mirrim.
