How about this, then? Underhero is pitched as a turn-based RPG platformer… Without the, er, turns. The gameplay is a fusion of timing-based combat and side-scrolling, but you should still expect genre staples such as levelling mechanics, puzzles, and lush pixel art.
“Underhero is an RPG platformer where the chosen hero has failed, and an underling of the evil king reluctantly takes his place as the new hero,” the blurb reads. “Use timing-based combat to defeat enemies as you venture across the land, face off against quirky bosses, and save the Chestnut Kingdom from your own evil boss, Mr Stitches.”
You can watch a trailer above ahead of a 11th February and 12th February release date in North America and Europe respectively.
