Runnyk is on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch

We’re well used to dropping into the world of the Viking across some great games. Today we do it once more, as the mini metroidvania Runnyk releases on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch. 

The latest from Ratalaika Games

Runnyk is the latest to come from the Ratalaika Games team, as it drops onto Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Also present on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, this comes to market as a mini metroidvania experience, one which will thrust you into a Viking world. 

It’s priced at £4.99 which places it right in line with the plethora of other indie games that release on a daily basis. And it’s that price which may well make it an appealing take, particularly suited to those looking for Valhalla. 

Placing you in the shoes of the titular protagonist, in Runnyk you’ll be left to work your way through a 2D world, one that comes with plenty of action and a host of RPG elements. And as any good Viking will know, it may all lead to a self-sacrifice as you look to hunt down a number of magical runes. 

Key features

Norse mythology, 8-bit visuals, magical powers and more make up the key features of Runnyk on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch. 

  • Norse mythology references
  • Colorful 8-bit style graphics
  • Four magical powers
  • Many useful items to find
  • Simplified leveling system
  • Mini metroidvania with many alternative paths

Buy now!

Sold? You’ll find Runnyk on the Xbox Store, playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. As with all Ratalaika Games titles, this one is fully optimised for Series X|S too. 

You’ll also find it on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch. 

Our review is incoming. 

Runnyk on Xbox Game Description

A mini metroidvania 2D-action RPG that tells the story of a brave viking. Runnyk must travel through cold lands for the chance to save his beloved. According to a prophecy, Runnyk must be prepared to sacrifice his own life in order to find the four magical runes, so that he can meet Odin himself and ask for help. During Runnyk’s journey, he will face many powerful creatures, as well as some friends who will aid him on his quest.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
