Ario is on Xbox, PlayStation, PC
Ario mixes genres on Xbox, PlayStation, PC

Ario is a very unique proposition. It comes to Xbox, PlayStation and PC via the Vata Games and Artax Games teams, mixing in a fantasy world, platforming, puzzles and tower defence. Will it work?

A merging of genres

Available right now on Xbox Series X|S is Ario. Non-playable on Xbox One, you’ll also find it kicking around on digital storefronts for PlayStation 5 and PC. This is a vibrant 2.5D action adventure that whisks us off to a Persian-inspired world, chucking in a ton of steampunk as it goes. If you’ve recently enjoyed Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, then you should be well at home here. 

Running a price of £10.49, Ario heads off on a little adventure, one in which he is looking to rescue his mother. The thing is, it isn’t long before he discovers that in order to pull off this rescue, he’ll need to defeat some dark forces. It’s here where challenges, hazards, demons and more come to the fore. 

The adventure of Ario will see you meeting new allies, all happy to help in your quest. But more important are the mechanics. See, Ario is armed with a crossbow, but before you help him leap through some 12 levels of action, you’ll need to get involved in the metroidvania and tower defense mechanics first. 

Key features

There’s no doubt that there’s a lot going on in Ario. But we reckon you should be taking a look at the key features… 

  • BEAT ENEMIES AND OBSTACLES WITH YOUR SKILLS: Use Ario’s extensive movement abilities, deadly crossbow, and diverse skills to take down a slew of enemies and fight imposing bosses.
  • A UNIQUE TOWER DEFENSE MECHANIC INTEGRATED WITHIN THE LEVELS: Take a strategic point of view and clear out hordes of incoming foes with a ballistae, slowing down time and guiding your bolts home to stop their assault.
  • A FANTASY WORLD FULL OF PLATFORMING AND PUZZLES: Explore a 12 levels of platforming mayhem in a medieval fantasy world studded with Steampunk elements and stalked by mythical creatures.
  • HELP ARIO BECOME THE HERO THAT HIS HOMELAND NEEDS: Experience an epic story —fully voiced in Persian with beautifully illustrated cutscenes— that tells of a new ruler, a land plagued by curses, and the desperate search for a missing parent.

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.
