  1. Maldita Castilla is a game created by Juan Antonio Becerra, also know as Locomalito, released in December 2012 for Windows. Maldita Castilla EX is created by the same developer, but with two more chapters, some extra weapons, and enemies. These games take inspiration from the arcade games from the 80s and other console classics like Super Ghosts and Goblins. There is very little randomness in the game, enemies spawn in the same location each time, and bosses are all about learning the patterns. However, that does not make the game ‘easy’. There is still plenty of challenge to the game in learning the spawns and patterns, and being able to execute your moves to defeat them. There is no time limit to completing levels, but the estimated time for completing a speedrun of the game in under 40 minutes. There are secrets and a hidden final chapter that can only be unlocked by finding Moura tears in the levels. The audio and visuals of the game nearly perfectly replicate the feel of an 80s arcade, including the scan lines. It’s customizable, so you don’t have to play with the scan lines, but it’s a nice feature to include. A lot of feelings of nostalgia were brought out by this game, and I’m very pleased with how well done the game is. For achievements, they are certainly going to keep me playing this game. Many of the achievements are for finding the different secrets throughout the game, but the most challenging ones are to complete the game in under 40 minutes, and for finishing the game equipped with the fire sword, which is found in the third level, so you need to complete more than half the game without dying and losing the power-up. This is not an easy 1,000 GS (or Platinum Trophy), but will feel very rewarding when you accomplish it. In summary, Maldita Castilla EX is a very well done game. It’s a great play, and if you remember those days of the arcades and NES classics, this is sure to bring back fond memories. It can be challenging and frustrating, but in the end I found it rewarding and I hope you do too.
  2. Indie games run the gambit of genres and quality. They also vary between short forays and long adventures that will rival any AAA title out there. Borealys Games has recently released Mages of Mystralia, and it fits firmly in the adventure genre and is a very detailed, and fairly expansive title. You play the part of Zia, a young woman who one day discovers that she is a mage. This realization comes to her when she accidentally burns down her house. Since nobody really understands magic, you are instantly banished from your village to fend for yourself. It isn’t long before you meet another mage who introduces himself as your new mentor in the ways of magic. Thus, begins your journey into the world of magic and uncovering the mysteries of what is happening in the world around you. The heart of this adventure game is the magic spell system. You start out the game with 4 basic spells, but you will find runes that you can use to manipulate them to act in new ways. There is a simple flame spell which can be used to light fires, but add a move rune and it will become a projectile weapon. Next you can add a right rune so that your projectile hooks to the right after you release it, to attack enemies around corners. Then you slap on a duplicate rune, and you can now fire 3 fireballs at once. Finally, you can add a link rune so that once your fireball hits its target, it will trigger another spell, such as an explosion. You can set up each of these spells for different situations, but can only have 1 of each type active at a time. As you play through the adventure you will unlock new areas with the new spell iterations that you learn. These areas will hold and more powerful enemies for you to overcome. There will also be puzzles for you to try and solve. Many of these puzzles will unlock new wands for you to use, or a stash of beads that can be traded to permanently increase your health or mana. Like many adventures, the more powerful you become, the more items you can discover lurking in the corners of the map. Mages of Mystralia boasts a 2/3 top down view that excels in its depiction of evil. The area bosses tend to tower over Zia, showing just how much of an uphill fight she has on her hands. As you travel the land each location exudes its own character. Darkened crypts, sunny farm land, busy towns, and abandoned mines are all beautifully rendered. Each spell also takes on a life of its own, especially as you evolve them. The soundtrack of the game fits well with the scope of the adventure. Boss battles seemed even more intense as the music builds in the background. Mages of Mystralia is an adventure game that will keep you engaged from the very start. The game evokes memories of Legend of Zelda, but the magic system propels it to the next level. Grab it now on XB1, PS4, or Steam. The price tag is $19.99 which is more than reasonable when you look at the length and content of the game.
  3. an·ox·e·mi·a (ān'ŏk-sē'mē-ə) n. An absence of oxygen in arterial blood This is just one of the ways that you can die in the new game just released by Badland Games that bears the name of the affliction. Anoxemia is a story driven exploration game that will have you questioning the game world around you. You play as Dr Bailey an underwater explorer whose job it is to gather plant specimens. You are not alone in your quest, you are accompanied by an operations drone named ATMA. ATMA will help you through the use of sonar and as your only light source in the ocean depths. After something happens to the erest of your crew you must complete your mission with only the help of of ATMA. Your mission is not just a walk on the ocean floor though. Besides trying to find the sea grasses, you will also have to find more oxygen for your suit as well as power for the drone. There are also upgrades scattered across the ocean floor. Unfortunately you are not alone in the big blue ocean. There are large mines and underwater munitions leftover from the war that will hamper your progress. You also have to avoid acidic waters and other toxic environments as they will sap you of your energy. The game controls are on point. This is good because there are many times when you will have to manuever between multiple obstacles that can kill you and precision is key. There is a slight amount of learning to be had, but after a few deaths you will understand how things interact with each other in the environment. The graphics in the game are dark, but that is because they are trying to replicate what it is like deep below the surface of the ocean. I don't have have a problem with the in game graphics, while a bit dark, they play very well with the environment and the story. What I do take issue with is all of the promotional graphics that were released before the game came out on XB1. For some reason there were no in game screenshots released for this game, and that can be a bit misleading if you haven't seen the game on other platforms or the developers website. Anoxemia is out now on XB1, Steam and PS4 for $7.99. If you are looking for an interesting, story driven adventure game this is one to add to your wish list. The levels will keep you on your toes and it is a journey worth taking. 7/10
  4. Lienzo has released a new game in the adventure, platformer, Metrovania genre. Hunter's Legacy is the story of Ikki, the greatest huntress of Un'amak. Her village lives in peace and harmony with nature until one day when and evil warlock steals the Fang of Alliance. This sets your world into turmoil and you must retrieve it. Armed with your dual swords and bow you must journey through the land in search of your treasure. Ikki must battle to find the warlock in hopes of bringing balance back to your world. As you search for your foe, you will have to fight mini bosses, collect new attacks, upgrade your weapons and health. Each new attack will allow you to open up new areas to further your adventure. Power up to destroy once impenaturable obstacles, and jump to new heights. The game follows the basic formula of many adventure games. Chase the big bad, he escapes and you have to scour the land, battle smaller bosses so you can gather the tools to continue your original chase. Gameplay is also very typical - even though you are the Worlds Greatest Huntress, you are very unequipped for your battle. Unfortunately the quest to power up is underwhelming. Even though you travel through multiple areas, most feel very similar. You will encounter the same enemies across several areas. One of the most interesting areas is the Snowy Volcano. Here you will encounter ice that you will slide on, and will freeze you if you spend to long on it. You will not freeze to the point of not beinig able to move, but you will start taking environmental damage. Not far away you will encounter hot zones that will raise your temp until you start taking heat damage. You must make sure that you have enough health to traverse these areas and take care of the enemies you encounter. Most parts of the game are not that difficult, but these environmental hazards ratchet up the difficulty. The mini bosses also drastically up the ante, but this isn't because of their attack or health, it's because of game design. The first mini boss you encounter will briefly hang from the ceiling and you must shoot it's support with your bow. Once it falls you can temporarily damage it. The first few attacks are easy because you have a tower to climb that gets you close to the enemy. Once they are destroyed you must shoot from ground level and this is where things get dicey. You have to be at the precise angle in order to hit your target, but to do that the enemy is almost entirely off screen. This makes for an extended battle that really shouldn't be that hard. The graphics in the game bring back memories of older adventure games in the genre. Enemies are well designed and look sharp across the game. The soundtrack contains whimsical tracks of pan flute music to accompany you on your journey. There are a few tracks that include a rhymic clicking that made me try and figure out why my clock was so loud. Hunter's Legacy is out now for XB1, and can be added to your collection for $6.99. If you pine for old school MetroidVania games, this is a good title to keep you busy for a few hours.
