    Aggelos is a love letter to fans of classic side-scrolling platformers. Despite a few glaring issues, the game achieves greatness through staying true to its formula, through not holding back on its difficulty, and through maintaining a pace that effortlessly keeps things interesting and unique. Whilst this may not be the best adventure of its kind, it’s certainly high up there, and in the midst of so many retro-inspired releases, that’s a feat in itself.

    Aggelos is a clear homage to the 16 bit classics that will be addictive for veterans and newbies to the metroidvania genre. Despite a very cliche plot and a gameplay a little simplistic, Aggelos is a game that succeed on its main goals.

    Despite the presence of so many other games, Aggelos still succeeds at providing a surprisingly polished and organically designed 2D platformer RPG with great play mechanics. Yes, it won’t attract a non-expert audience as it is clearly targeted towards Wonder Boy/World loyalists, but diehard fans who have played the existing catalogue extensively will get the fix they need from Aggelos.

    When a game is inspired by the classics, you'd hope that it improves upon them. Although Aggelos doesn't, it's still a rather fun game.

With a Vast nearly load free map to explore, and an ever growing set of skills to master, Aggelos keeps you moving. The monsters you face all pose their own challenge, and make you think about how you're going to time your moves. The games Bosses are all challenging, and will put your skills to the test. Navigation into new areas will be granted as you learn your skills, and magic. The art style feels very Mega-Man, with sprites and animations very fitting to the style, with sound effects to match. You will spend hours navigating the world, and unlocking all of it's secrets, while utilizing everything you learn along the way. The temple of the Woodpecker will test all of the skills you've learned along the way, and teach you new ways to use them at the same time. A sign at the start of the temple warns you before hand that it is hard, the sign is accurate! Storybird Games made a great game, and if you like the retro plat-former, Metroidvania feel, this game should be on your list. Expand
