Review from Steam

Blasphemous is a hard game with a dark ( gothic) theme and the story is based on Christianity as its foundation for a world covered in chaos, it has a beautiful art style borrowed from Spanish culture, since I died a lot in the game I wasn't able to meet the presumable time it takes to finish it but it's about 14 hours to complete and if you want to see all the aspects of the game it would take around 27 hours.
I don't think I can compare it with other games from this genre, it feels unique, and I love the aesthetics of the game. Music was also good.
I would say this is the closest 2D game to soulslike ( combat and death mechanics wise). The way they blended gloom and doom environment with the hard bosses made it worth playing.
I have seen a variety of different enemies which made it very engaging , so if you are a player that enjoys a variety of foes and specific attack dynamics during combat you might really enjoy it.
I often found myself lost in a riddle like world, opening doors, finding pathways or understanding NPCs.
In short this is a game that is worth trying, memorable, unique, and very appealing if you appreciate beautiful pixel art.
