Mitchell Saltzman (IGN)

Olija is a memorable 2D action platformer with great combat that is over all too soon with little reason to return.

A brilliant central mechanic and a game of real craft and character.

Olija’s quick, zippy combat, platforming puzzles, and minimalist storytelling all shine in a small, pixelated trifle.
