Great review here, but... Phelios shade noticed! I don't recall loving that other game, but I think I enjoyed it more than you. Either way, you've made Sylphia sound like I need to find time to play it.

"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world2

Looking at site reviews for Phelios, you had it at 3/5, Marc had it at 2.5/5 and I had it at 2/5, so yes, you did enjoy it more than I did! But, yeah, Sylphia is a good amount of fun and a lot of imagination went into crafting it. Seemed like every level had its own particular enemies where some might get repeated, but you saw stuff in each level you wouldn't see in any others. And in shooters, that isn't something you can count on happening regularly.
