Looking to soar into a new adventure? Reckon you’ve got your wings primed and ready to fly high? The magical feathered world of Eagle Island Twist is now opening up.
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Eagle Island Twist from Screenwave Media (they behind Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe) will thrust you onto an island full of dangers. Nothing new there, eh? We’re gamers after all. But this island is different and this platforming tale is unique, for you’ll not have to go into battle alone as you have a gorgeous owl companion in tow.
Eagle Island Twist should pretty much work like most platforming adventures. It’s up to you to work your way through a variety of environments, discover secret areas and collect some of the finest hidden treasures. You’ll also have to battle enemies, bosses and whatever else comes to the fore as this plays with the original roguelite adventure of Eagle Island by twisting things up a bit with new rules on every level – hence the name.
With that original game included, the high-flying adventure of Eagle Island Twist most certainly awaits the most hardcore of adventurers. And with no less than 45 handcrafted stages, a lovely 16-bit world map to plan your routes on, and that lovely owl companion sitting by your side, ready to help build combos and defeat oncomers, there should be much to love about this little adventure. Especially as there is a Story Mode, a Rogue Mode AND a Weekly Speedrun…
Key features include:
- Story Mode – uncover the mystery of the Island of Yulu while earning permanent upgrades for Quill & Koji!
- Rogue Mode – test your skills in a series of 16 unlockable challenge maps – permadeath awaits!
- Weekly Speedrun – a new map every week, compete and rise up the leaderboard!
