[Beyond PlayStation] Sigi – A Fart for Melusina Review
Sigi: A Fart for Melusina is a very amusing and short game on Nintendo Switch from pixel lu and Sometimes You. Learn more about it in our Sigi: A Fart for Melusina
You play as Sigi, a knight who is on a mission to find a mermaid who you will get to meet at the beginning of the game. The mermaid in question is called Melusina, and it is Sigi’s flatulence which scared her away, and this is how Sigi’s quest begins to find Melusina – hence the name for the game. The game won’t blow you away, but it has several charming and amusing moments. You can complete the game’s story in an hour or so as you take on its solid retro-style platformer with 20 levels. You will battle a variety of enemies and take on bosses, and with a bit of practice, you will be able to defeat all who stand in your way. As you progress through the game, you will also be collecting treasures and finding the SIGI letters, so there’s definitely more than enough things to do in this one!
There are also secrets within the levels that will enable you to find to collect extra loot and coin, which adds some extra replayability for completionists. At the end of the game you will get an overall percentage of game completion and how much treasure you have managed to collect, and if you have missed any you will have the opportunity to go back and replay levels, which means that nothing is missable and that getting 100% in this game is very achievable.
A quick side note for those of you who are trophy hunters and who might be considering getting the game on PS4 and Vita. There is a trophy for completing the game in under 30 minutes, which you probably won’t be able to get during your first run… but there is a bug that that causes the timer to count backwards on the pause screen, which makes it possible for you to get that particular trophy through the easy path! I hope that this bug works for you as well as it did for a buddy of mine.
Sigi: A Fart for Melusina is a short but charming game on Nintendo Switch that you’re going to get a kick out of playing. The game’s pixel art style and its music will send you back to an old-school era, with the refinements you’d expect from a 21st-century game. While you can play the game docked on the big screen, I think it plays and feels better when enjoyed in handheld mode, and since it’s only 20 levels long, it’s the perfect game for you to play on the go. I have no real complaints about the game other than I wish there were more levels to play, so hopefully the team works on a sequel!
