For a free game, this was quite the nice experience.
The game itself is rather simple.
You touch enemies to hit them and as you progress you learn 4 skills. You can also craft some weapons and armors, though the crafting itself is just as simple as the fighting, with a sword recipe and 3 armor recipes for each level, and 3 upgrades for each piece that always require the same, simple steps.

Now, simplicity isn't a negative here. It works to the game benefit, as the short story the game is trying to tell and the characters it tries to enstablish take on a more prominent role. This simplicity in the gameplay keeps the game fairly enjoyable without distracting us from Senia's struggle on her search for her sister but it also keeps it somewhat challenging with boss fights, where you can decide the difficulty.
Doing boss fights on hard can be quite the challenge: I had a very difficult time with the last boss true form because I chose hard, but winning that fight made me really excited.

The game suffers from a shaky translation here and there (some weird word choice, some not elegant phrasing), but it still manages to deliver its message, it still manages to convey the feelings these characters portray, so in the end the shaky translation didn't really negatively affect me. I still wish it had a better translation, because this short, free game feels like a nice, little jewel that could be even better with just that little more polish.

Graphically, it follows the same principle as its gameplay. It's simple yet effective. If the translation is a bit shaky in the delivery, the character portraits do a perfect job conveying the feelings they're expressing, while the sprites show some nice little touches (like Senia's changes after using a certain skill).

Another thing that really help in conveying the feeling and struggles of the characters in the story is the music, which I have to commend. It's good, really good. It always feels on point and well executed.

As I said at the start, this was a very nice experience. More so because I wasn't expecting a game as charming as this, a game that would grab me so much.
Because of this and because of its free nature, if I had to give this a vote, it would be a pretty high one.
Even if this game has a little lack in polish and it's very simple, it made everything up with the way it touched my heart.

My rating for this game would be: Excellent
My vote for this game would be: 9/10
