Ah, the good old side scroller. We all love em, but in recent times they’ve been neglected, having to play second (and third) fiddle to the huge expansive open world shooters and visually stunning racers. But today we see a new side scroller arrive on Xbox One, and Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight looks like something well worth checking out.
Available to download right now for just £7.99, Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight promises exciting gameplay, intense boss battles, a varied world that begs to be explored and enough mysterious lore and backstory to keep you going back for more – and that’s all from a humble side scrolling platformer!
With an art style all of its own and the chance to head on into a story, a world and an adventure that promises so much, we reckon you won’t be able to ignore the chance to make your way to the Xbox Games Store and give it a little shot. Especially when it comes in at such a decent, well-placed price point.
Let us know if you do in the comments below!
Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight explores a cursed land in decline. Evil spreads, the dead rise, and corruption reigns. Hope is but a faded memory for all but one, a priestess named Kaho from the village of Lun. An audience with her majesty, the queen, would surely save the land–but time is short and each night darker than the last. Reverie Under the Moonlight is the fourth entry in the Momodora series, a side-scrolling platformer focused on action gameplay, with melee combos, dodge mechanics and a plethora of items and spells to unleash upon your enemies. Play casually for the rich setting and mysterious story or crank up the difficulty to run your reflexes through a truly brutal gauntlet. FEATURES- Beautifully animated graphics – Exciting action gameplay – combo, dodge and skewer enemies with arrows – Intense boss battles with challenging patterns and epic scale – Difficulty settings appropriate for all, from story and setting lovers to hardcore action enthusiasts – A breadth of items that can be combined to create new strategies – A widely varied world to explore, filled with secrets and treasures – Eccentric allies and foes with compelling personalities – Mysterious lore and rich backstory in events, dialog and item descriptions
