    One of the most iconic characters within the world of Middle-earth is Gollum, a being so obsessed with the One Ring that he's been driven insane.

Its incredibly detailed environments and intense gameplay attracted a lot of attention, and it was met with largely positive reviews.

    When developer Heart Machine decided to venture into 3D for its follow-up to Hyper Light Drifter, it didn't just change the perspective. While the two titles share the same universe, Solar Ash is a very different game in many ways. Essentially, this is a fast-paced platformer that puts the emphasis on movement rather than combat.
