Aggelos Out Now on Steam, Console Release to Followon June 21, 2018 by Max Williams
2D action-adventure RPG Aggelos is out now on Steam! It’s a neat homage to Wonder Boy and it’s brimming with retro style! The console release is due to follow later this year on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch! Check out the Steam launch trailer below:
Here’s some more about Aggelos and its features from the game’s Steam page:
Step through time and discover a mesmerizing new action-RPG that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 16-bit era, but plays like a modern-day marvel! Inspired by non-linear Japanese retro adventures such as Wonder Boy In Monster World, Aggelos hurls players into the middle of a colossal struggle for survival as beings from another dimension threaten to invade the peaceful Kingdom of Lumen. Bursting with secrets and side-quests, and boasting slick melee combat that any 2D action game would envy, Aggelos is the perfect combination of retro style and modern-day game design.
A vast kingdom to explore
Venture through forests, seas, cave systems and ancient temples as you seek to uncover the magical elements needed to save the world from total annihilation.
A classical non-linear adventure
Explore a sprawling world that gradually reveals itself, Metroidvania-style, as you gain new abilities and equipment.
Thwart towering bosses and their tricky minions as you take on perilous mainline quests and optional odd-jobs for the people of Lumen.
Unlock magical abilities and high-level attacks, expertly chaining these immense powers together to clear screens of enemies in seconds.
Stunning sprite art
Forget out-of-place modern art: Aggelos boasts superlative character designs and animations while remaining proudly, and faithfully, 16-bit through and through.
Lose yourself to a retro-inspired soundtrack that floods the Kingdom of Lumen with life.
The game’s design is really vibrant and nostalgic – it nails that retro aesthetic but has some modern flare too. If you’re a fan of retro style games, side-scrollers, and/or games like Wonder Boy, you should definitely give this one a look!
Aggelos is out now on Steam, and it’s available for 20% off until June 26th too!
