short, enjoyable 3D indie platformer with nice visuals (low polygon count + simple texturing + fancy UE4 lighting is a combination more games should use) and solid level design. worth playing for 3D platforming fans even if it requires putting up with a fair bit of jank attributable to its low budget and small team (some questionable checkpoints, a few unclear level objectives, English voice acting that doesn't match the subtitles, etc).

not to be confused with Elli, a similarly named but entirely different indie 3D platformer with a somewhat similar art style that came out a bit later in 2020. I liked this one better, though


Game is fine, but it's plagued with technical problems. Tries to capture the magic of PS2-era 3D platformers, but never does anything interesting enough to break out of the shadows of the greats.
