Momodora Reverie Under the Moonlight (PC) Review

I can’t even remember buying this game, so it was a bit of a shock when it came to looking through my steam library for a new game to play. But after seeing the trailer and gameplay on the store I downloaded it and now it is time for a review.


Its turns out that this is the 4th game in the series, so it wont come to a shock to you all when I say I had no idea what was happening at the start and it wasn’t until the end when you beat the final boss that you finally start to figure anything out.  It is up to you a girl called Kaho to help out the cursed lands and try and get the place to go back to normal. To do this you will have to go through many puzzles as well as a few boss fights iin the hope that you are able to defeat the person who has caused the lands to become cursed.

For me I wasn’t really paying all that much attention to the story because I had no idea what was happening at first. As you progress through the game you get to have some more snippets of story and after a while your story starts to build together. I do like the story as it gives you something to fight for, I like the way it is told, it makes you have to explore the map to be able to find as much as possible. By the time I had finished the main story of the game I got 75% of the map seen and the rest was places I didn’t have the powers at the time to get through.

The way this game looks is in my opinion fantastic, it has got the pixel art that I love but they have made it slightly more HD if that makes any more sense. Imagine Shovel Knight graphics but on a remastered copy, I can’t think of any other way to describe it. Everything from the main character herself to the background looks amazing and it was the main part of the game that made me want to play it.

I did find the music to be pretty boring and after a while I just put on Netflix instead of listening to the game as I found that to be more entertaining than the music. I just wanted more bass so that the music had something that would keep your attention for longer or better sound effects such as when the leaf would hit an enemy or the jumping noise.

Overall this game is very good but a few things stop it from being amazing, the game plays great and it is very easy to master everything that you are shown, but after a while of just searching the map for the next section is just plain boring, with the addition of boring music and not very entertaining boss battles it just didn’t seem worth completing it. Of course the game looks great but they should of put more time into other areas. With the game costing £6.99 ($10) on steam and only being 4 hours long it is not worth the money and if you buy it for anying more then £4 ($5) then you have been ripped off.
