Have you ever been fighting skeletons in a dungeon and think why do they care they are skeletons?
Have you wanted to be the skeletons fighting back? Now you can!
If that's a yes then keep reading because we have a side-scrolling dungeon crawler from the skeletons point of view right here with Skelattack!
A great game developed by UKUZA also the developers of Epic Loon.
You play as Skully a skeleton. Skully is enchanted by unknown means, he lives within one of the deepest parts of the dungeon. He is one of the protectors of the dungeon because it's constantly being attacked from human invaders in search of unknown treasure. Something even Skully doesn't know anything about.
Skully isn't alone though, he has a bat friend called Imber who flies around with Skully through the dungeons. Imber is Skully's companion through the game. Your bat friend Imber serves as your magic source throughout the game and helps you get through certain areas, but you'll have to play to find out how!
There's a demo available to the public which lets you look at the game in a lot of detail.
The demo is great but I will say now the game will give you a challenge but its not too difficult, just hard enough that will make you try your best to succeed. When you get to the part with all of the spikes, you'll understand what I mean. But it is worth it after you get past the tough areas and the checkpoints are amazingly placed.
After getting through the dungeon, you'll be met with a boss battle which adds some great stipulations, and I'm not going to go into too much detail as I don't want to ruin it for you but I will say this; to die the first time is excellent!
Skelattack is an intense game with a lot of detail consistently throughout the game. From the bosses to the storyline; set in a world full of lore.
Definition of Lore - all knowledge and history of a certain sci-fi/fantasy universe.
A mission of the game is to collect the lore which can be found anywhere and everywhere like in books. Once the lore is found it is stored in your own personal library that you can access when a level is completed or if you head back to the hub area. You can learn about Skully's world once you find the lore. Beware the humans who might have the magic which can kill the enchanted skeletons meaning that they won't come back to life when they die...
I have only played the demo so far as the game is not out yet, but from the demo the detail and the artwork are fantastic! All the artwork is hand drawn and astounding. It is clear that a lot of hard work went into making this game and it is clear that it will be a success once released.
