This is an amazing action-platformer. It feels a lot like the platformers from the Playstation 2 era. In each level, you’ll get a new ability that you need to use to progress. The first level is always the same; after that, you arrive on an overworld map. On this map, you’ll find the most relics and you’ll be able to unlock the most achievements. After every level, you get back to this map, so you don’t have to get everything on there the first time you enter it. It will make the game a lot easier though, if you farm everything on the world map first. That is because you can find a lot of experience there, which will level you up and give you more health. You can choose the order in which to complete the next 3 levels, but I would highly suggest to go to the mills first, then the Woodborn and lastly the Vineyards. You make it a lot easier for yourself in that order, because of the skill you unlock in each of those levels. I didn’t go in that order and had a hard time in some sections.

If you want to play the game only once and not miss out on 2 missable achievements (one for collecting all the relics and the other for getting all achievements), I highly suggest to at least follow the guide linked above for the relics chests. There is an achievement for getting to level 6. After you get that achievement, you still can level up but there is no achievement for getting higher. Once I reached that point I stopped looking at the guide for those chests and only focused on the relics chests. If I saw an easy-to-reach experience chest I still would pick it up (because the higher your level, the easier the last boss fight), but didn’t go out of my way anymore to get to them.
