I started playing The Messenger on Malu's Switch at her grand aunt's place in Rio. So far, it's a Ninja Gaiden-esque game, but I know something will happen later...
After playing for hours, I defeated the Arcane Golem and the game opened up and turned into a Metroid-vania. I'm very confused about where to go now, I think the path forward is very unclearly communicated.
Playing this again isn't satisfying or fun anymore. It just feels like work. And I'm frustrated with how bad the map is.
