ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights

For a Metroidvania fan, Ender Lilies is like opening up a cup of instant noodles and discovering a Christmas dinner of only foods you recognize. It has rich visuals, boiling hot combat, and a sophisticated ant farm of a world map to barrel through and explore. The strange thing about this Very Good Game is that almost every element has been carefully extracted from another title. There’s Hollow Knight, Dark Souls of course, but also Nier and, amusingly, Odin’s Sphere. Ender Lilies is great from start to finish, not because it’s original, but because it performs the moves so well.
