So gameplay will depend on your coordination with the two characters. As disembodied spirits can appear without warning and hurt Nyah or her light. Which also means learning the unique play style intuitively and quickly. As fresh challenges emerge to test you in the wild.
Since gameplay seems simple enough. Controlling Nyah is straight forword. But working with her spirit companion in tandem becomes part of the players adventure. While swinging Nyah to new heights, destroying barriers, thwarting spirits and lighting the way to secret locations.
Really what has my attention within this style of gameplay is the art style. This is usually the first thing that catches my attention. Which also blends well within Little Bug.
