Developers Storybird Games and Wonderboy Bobi are excited to be launching Aggelos on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which they did today. The press release from publisher PQube says they received lots of great feedback from players of the PC (Steam) and Switch versions of the game. Aggelos is a retro styled Metroidvania adventure, and here is the launch trailer:

 

In the game, players can find their own path in a massive, non-linear world. The game’s “dynamic and diverse” options for movement are celebrating the era of 16-bit non-linear, Japanese games that gave players impressive, fun-to-pull-off combos. Thanks to those movement options, it also offers more mobility than other homages to these Sega classics.

In Aggelos, players will wander into the caves and forests of the kingdom, or delve into dangerous ancient temples and the depths of underwater areas to uncover their secrets. Along the way you’ll discover new skills and magical elements, which can be used to help you in the battles that lie ahead. You’ll face deadly but unique bosses as you progress on your adventure and uncover a classic hero story. There is also a hard mode for veterans of the Metroidvania genre to sink their teeth into.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
