Endless Memories is an action adventure game representing the sub-genre of metroidvania, enriched with RPG elements. The game was developed by the independent, two-person studio Homunculus Games. Among the sources of inspiration, the developers mention such titles as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Dead Cells.
The main character of Endless Memories is Rem, an amnesiac who is locked in a mysterious Dream Laboratory. Wanting to regain lost memories and find a way out, the hero has to travel through eight different dreams and free the minds trapped in them. Each dream tells a different story, has unique characters, and has its own secrets to explore.
In Endless Memories, the action is shown from the side. Exploring particular lands (including picturesque open-air locations, gloomy caves and even a murderous toy factory or a post-apocalyptic city of the future), we jump on platforms, avoid numerous obstacles, traps and solve various environmental puzzles. In addition, clashes with opponents play an important role here. The combat is dynamic and skillful and reflexes are required to avoid enemy attacks and execute swift counter-attacks. We are faced with a variety of opponents, led by powerful bosses. The latter not only have more attack power and damage resistance, they also have unique features. For example, the oversized frog Captain Croig throws lightning at us, the mechanical mercenary N-28 uses a revolver and the Cwenburg Queen, dressed in armour and equipped with a sword, uses the power of various elements.
We eliminate enemies by using a wide range of weapons (such as daggers, clubs, axes and swords), a bow (which enables us to keep them at a safe distance from the hero) or by using magic-based combat skills provided by the Ancient Glyphs or Memory Runes. The former give us access to passive and active powers, which we can combine with each other, while the latter not only unlock new skills, but also open passages to previously inaccessible places (for example, by enabling us to travel in the form of an electrical charge or break through cracked floors). We find new equipment, created using an extensive crafting system or bught from traders encountered during the adventure. In addition, as we progress, we earn experience points and level up, as well as develop hero's stats.
Endless Memories features colorful, hand-drawn graphics. The creators made sure that individual locations stand out from each other in terms of colors and the elements that make them up. The game is accompanied by a soundtrack that builds the atmosphere of a great adventure.
