'Aggelos' (ALL) Update Adds Hard Mode, Langauge Localizations

by Rainier on Sept. 13, 2018 @ 7:54 a.m. PDT

Aggelos is a new, retro-styled 16-bit era 2D action/adventure RPG.

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.

Aggelos received a free update today that adds Hard Mode for an additional level of difficulty. Also, players can now choose more languages to play in, including French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Russian.

To cater even more towards veterans of this genre and further improve replayability, Hard Mode offers a real difference in how players approach the game. They will now face enemies that deal more damage, have greater movement speed, higher attack rate and shoot additional projectiles.

Key Features

  • 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.
  • Deadly encounters: Thwart towering bosses and their tricky minions as you take on perilous mainline quests and optional odd-jobs for the people of Lumen.
  • Tactical depth: 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.
  • Memorable chiptunes: Lose yourself to a retro-inspired soundtrack that floods the Kingdom of Lumen with life.

Aggelos is available on PC via Steam for $14.99 / £11.39 / €12.49 and will also release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One soon in 2018.
