  • Summary: Mirenia is an 18 year old girl on a quest for redemption. After unleashing an evil power when she was a teenager, she is now on her way to Tirkin Fortress to perform an ancient spell that should help her vanquish the very evil she unleashed three years ago. Now, nearing the end of her quest,Mirenia is an 18 year old girl on a quest for redemption. After unleashing an evil power when she was a teenager, she is now on her way to Tirkin Fortress to perform an ancient spell that should help her vanquish the very evil she unleashed three years ago. Now, nearing the end of her quest, she arrives in the villages just outside the fortress, where monsters ravage, young women are being raped and men are being slaughtered. Armed with her trusted Shield Blade, Mirenia is so close of undoing the mistakes of her past. Will she succeed or ultimately only make matters worse? The Skylia Prophecy is a sidescrolling action-rpg set in a medieval fantasy world. As Mirenia, you will journey throughout the lands and towns, explore ancient dungeons and battle hordes of the undead in this hard as hell adventure inspired by the ‘kill the player’ philosophy of the ‘Souls’ games. Along your way you will meet the people of these lands, who will ask you to help them, sell you powerful items and reveal secrets to aid you on your journey. By interacting with the townsfolk, you will ultimately recieve rewards that make the game easier in the long run – thus, you set the difficulty for the final strech yourself! Expand

    A fun little fantasy platformer, The Skylia Prophecy makes for a charming throwback to the early days of gaming

    It's a demanding game, with a tough and demanding difficulty level and a good selling price, but which also brings little that has not been seen before many times. Its difficulty could be too frustrating for less experienced players, while its lack of original material means it won't quite standout among its peers.

    Making throwback games has got to be a difficult proposition, especially when trying to find a balance between classic and modernMaking throwback games has got to be a difficult proposition, especially when trying to find a balance between classic and modern sensibilities. The Skylia Prophecy certainly has some old school appeal if you like getting knocked around and a bit frustrated, and I don’t have an issue with games that are inherently challenging, especially when there’s some sort of reward for your perseverance. Another issue that crops up here though is that I’m not a big fan of controls and systems where it feels like you have artificially crippled controls to make things that hard for the sake of being hard, the way you trigger explosions being a great bad example. It’s not a bad game, and it is certainly easy on the budget, but there’s just a lack of overall polish that grates a bit in critical places.
