For all the cool AR-based games and AAA-quality titles you’ll find in the App Store, a big part of me hankers after some good, old-fashioned retro gaming fun.
The upcoming action platformer Unbroken Soul hits that sweet spot perfectly. No, it’s not a classic game port like Golden Axe, but it sure looks like it could have sat happily alongside it. Check out the trailer below.
Unbroken Soul comes from Spanish developer Chorrus Games. I haven’t yet had the chance to play it, but it certainly reminds me of a bunch of games I enjoyed growing up.
It’s a side-scrolling platformer, in which your character has a choice of fighting enemies with an up-close melee attack or dispatching them from a distance using a bow and arrow. In addition, there look to be plenty of wall jumps, boss battles, a fun range of scenery, and more.
Graphically its retro style looks like it could have been comfortably at home during the 16-bit Genesis era or, perhaps, as a Neo-Geo game.
A great new platformer is always something I welcome on iOS. Fortunately, I won’t have to wait too long to put it through its paces either. That’s because it’s coming to the App Store at the end of June. More details will follow, provided I’m not too busy playing it, that is!
