Quill's arsenal of solo moves consists simply of running, jumping, and the occasional ledge grab - keeping to it's classic 16-bit inspirations. To survive, you'll need to defeat & subdue threats with the help of your owl companion Koji! Cast Koji & launch attacks in 8-directions — hitting enemies in quick succession & maintaining chain combos earns greater rewards. Miss an attack and you'll be forced to wait longer for Koji to return. If Koji is injured or incapacitated, Quill will be briefly defenseless and must take evasive action whilst vulnerable!

Eagle Island promises a lot, but whether it ever truly delivers I cannot say, because after two days with it I am plain done. I was never quite enjoying it as much as I wanted to, and it never quite came together even during the brief window when the plot took a turn and it looked like it was about to really open up.
