Not Free, Controls Clunky
Just picked this up today and was surprised that after finishing the first/tutorial level, all others are locked behind a paywall. This would be fine but there’s no indication until you complete that level. Seems like it’d make more sense to at least have the first world open instead of a single level.
Otherwise it’s a fun enough retro game and the music is awesome. The design seems to try and pack in a lot into the scene so some things are not as defined. I know, it’s 8-bit.
The controls are simple and sometimes it’s a bit clunky in the double jump and pressing on the screen switches from left to right. That can cause some issues when your thumb slips.
If you’re a fan of Amon Amarth, this may be the game for you. Otherwise, there’s plenty of other 8-bit scrollers to try out.
Amon Amarth is a band from Sweden and they’ve released their own video game for mobile devices. All the music is their own but in 8-bit format. Gameplay is very simplistic in nature but the level design is very challenging. They’ve really worked on the jumping sensitivity along with the weapon button. The first level is free and the whole game is $8(?). It’s a lot of fun, I’d definitely recommend it
Worth the $ but not amazing
If you love Amon Amarth (as i do) then by all means, get the game. But while the graphics and sound are cool in a retro/throwback sense, the game play is VERY counter-intuitive, lots of switching directions and dying a lot. Double jump feature is flawed, kinda "works when it wants" and you absutely NEED it to work to pass levels... Or you are constantly dying and having to restart at beginning of level. Game could be more fun and less frustrating...
