    Review: http://thevitalounge.net/2016/04/26/severed/ (4.5/5)

    Plot Description:

    Your name is Sasha, and you’ve had both your right arm cut off, and your family taken from you by an evil dragon. You’ve been given a living sword by death himself, and are sent on a journey to recover that which you’ve lost. There are three great enemies (and countless smaller obstacles) standing in your way, but there are a few souls that care to help along the way as well. This is a strange world, and strange things lie within – both good, and bad.

    Grabbed this yesterday and have probably played for about an hour and a half so far. And it's brilliant.

    It doesn't sound great on paper, but the touch screen combat is surprisingly tactical and there's a Metroid feel to the exploration.

    I've played for 40 minutes or so and loving it. Glad they mirrored the movements to the face buttons. It was becoming a little hard to move and attack with the screen size.

    So I'm not into dungeon crawlers, touch screen gameplay or metroidvania, and I didn't like Guacamelee. Is there a chance I will like this anyway?

    There's a chance, but it's probably a very small one. You pretty much listed all the most basic descriptors for the game, so.... yeah.

    Too bad. I want to support this but I've spent too much money on games lately... Seems silly to spend more on a game I wont like.

    The second section of Severed seems to be much tougher than the first - I made it through the crow dominion without any real difficulties, but I've died a few times now :(

    Fortunately there's no penalty for dying, but battles are now a much more challenging and intense affair. That said, I can't wait to get back to it!

    Oh, really? Sounds intriguing :) I don't think I'm far off finishing the 2nd section now - hopefully I'll get it done on my way home tonight...

    Hmmm - I seem to hit a brick wall with Severed.
    I'm up in the Citadel and have unlocked
    , but no joy :(

    What am I missing?

    I'm pretty sure this is the main route I need to take, not a secret route or anything. I think I might have caused myself an issue by focussing my upgrades on the sword and eye, so haven't upgraded anything on the mouth/devour skill tree...?

    But maybe this is just a particularly tough fight and I need to persevere... Any further suggestions would be gratefully received!

    I'll try later, but from recollection it's two of the fungus/mushroom guys with the one eye and the guy with 3 tentacles (eyes on one of them) which he waves around all of the time...

    I could kill all 3 without issue, if it wasn't for the time limitation...

    After stewing over Severed all day, I managed to win the fight on my first attempt this evening \o/

    I've faced some other really hard cloud fights, but they've all been for secrets so I've left some of them for me to return to once I've levelled up a bit more :)
