'The Keep' (3DS) - New Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on June 2, 2014 @ 10:22 a.m. PDT

The Keep is an old-school dungeon first person crawler with real-time combat for the 3DS.

In The Keep you will embark on a quest to explore caves and mines filled with monsters to slain and puzzles to solve underneath and surrounding the tower of evil sorcerer Watrys.

Surviving in The Keep won’t be easy, but with the help of powerful weapons and armour, gaining strength by using specific skills of the hero and the right combination of magic and a melee combat you will overcome every obstacle and eventually defeat the undefeatable.

The Keep will offer something for newbies in the genre, seasoned adventures and for those who like to tackle with proper challenge - every difficulty level will have a Permadeath option.

Key Features:

  • Exploring and puzzle solving – the caves and dungeons are full of surprises. There will be deadly traps, elaborate mechanisms guarding secret passages, trapdoors and treasures with powerful weapons and supplies.
  • Real-time combat – a battle against enemies with a gesture based combat, but swiping the stylus horizontally or diagonally is not enough. Defeating enemies means that you have to break their defences hitting the upper or lower body or focusing on their head. Every enemy
    requires different strategy and every weapon class offers unique combos.   
  • Rune magic – utilising touch screen you can rearrange runes on a 5x4 board and then chain them together to cast powerful elemental magic (Fire, Ice or Lightning) with the stylus. Runes are scarce but there are a lot of spells, so be careful to pick the right combinations.
