The world of Geodia is waiting to take you off on a new adventure across a procedurally generated land, all in the hope that you can thwart the evil ways of a dastardly Baron. The question is, will you have what it takes to succeed in Sparklite?
Sparklite is available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC, with the hotly anticipated indie gem looking to gather up followers interested in the likes of The Legend of Zelda, alongside those more than happy to test their skills through standard roguelike adventures. Mixing and matching multiple gameplay elements, Sparklite certainly promises much, and initial signs are that this indie action adventure title will have what it takes to see through with those promises.
Priced up at £19.99 – with an initial launch discount dropping that to £16.99 – Sparklite will see you thrown into the world of Geodia, a land held together thanks to the power of Sparklite. But as is usually the case in these adventures, an evil force is attempting to harness the power of the Sparklite core for his own wicked ways, and it’ll be up to you to help the heroine – Ada – save the world.
With five distinct zones in place, you’ll need to be able to utilise both your own and Ada’s skills, abilities and cunning plans in order to stop the Baron from taking utter control, shutting down his digsites before the world as you know it fails to exist.
We’ll have a full review of Sparklite on Xbox One coming your way in the days ahead, but should you wish to give this procedually generated indie action adventure a shot then you’ll find the usual digital store providing access. Whether you are playing on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch or PC, matters little, for when Sparklite is on the line, you just have to get involved.
Sparklite is an action-adventure set in the whimsical and ever-changing land of Geodia. Battle foes in top-down action using an arsenal of gadgets, guns, and gear. Explore dangerous corners of the procedurally generated world, take down titans of the mining industry, and harness the power of Sparklite! Everything in the world of Geodia is tied together by Sparklite… it’s the life force of the planet, and the inhabitants have learned how to channel it safely. The blue, glowing ore can be harnessed providing a low-level, rechargeable power source. Or, for those brave or greedy enough, it can be consumed for a surge of power with grave consequences. Geodia’s self-titled “Baron” has devised a plot to mine the world’s Sparklite core to meet his own ends. Mining Sparklite in large quantities, the Baron repurposes the ore to fuel his powerful war machines, but the pollution from the consumed Sparklite is corrupting the world. Animals have turned into violent monsters, and the environment is rotting away. The stricken land of Geodia has a natural defence in its Sparklite core. Periodically, the core causes a Disruption which rearranges the world, setting back the Baron’s efforts. Our heroine, Ada, must stop the Baron before he can obtain the core and gain the power to create a new world in which he has ultimate power. A plucky mechanic, Ada will need to use her cunning and skills to defeat the Baron’s henchmen across five distinct zones. Ada will have to work with Geodia’s weird and wonderful inhabitants if she’s to face the Baron and put paid to his deadly plans before it’s too late. Our hero, Ada, must travel to each zone of the world to shut down the Baron’s Digsites before it’s too late…
