Priced at £16.74 from the Xbox Store – and you should expect roughly that price on PlayStation and Switch too – Lost Ruins plays out as a 2D side-scroller in which you play through the life of a young girl. It’s her who is lost in this dungeon, unable to recollect anything from the past. Dropped into a world that is populated by the most bloodthirsty of monsters, you’ll need to help this young girl get a grip on the situation at hand, working her way through a dangerous world. Thankfully, the magical, rather mysterious, Beatrice is there to help.
Hacking and slashing your way through the world is one way to succeed in Lost Ruins, but magic plays a huge part here too, wands, tonics, scrolls and more will let you freeze and burn foes, healing yourself as you see fit.
You’ll need to make the most of what is going on around you too, environmental elements play a huge role in what makes Lost Ruins such an intriguing prospect. We’ll be sure to cover all aspects in our upcoming review, letting you know how Lost Ruins plays on Xbox Series X|S.
Until that time, the key game features you’ll need to concern yourself with include…
- ENGAGE IN COMBAT – Combat in Lost Ruins is both strategic and methodical. Slash away at enemies, burn them to a crisp, or even deflect their projectiles back at them. Arm yourself with a variety of swords, axes and other assorted medieval weaponry, and hack monsters to pieces.
- MASTER DESTRUCTIVE SPELLS – For those with an affinity for magic, Lost Ruins allows you to cast a variety of spells through wands, tonics, and scrolls. Burn monsters, freeze bosses, and heal yourself when in danger. Choose what works for your playstyle and make a magic casting character that’s totally your own.
- CHOOSE YOUR ACCESSORIES – The world of Lost Ruins is a dangerous one and being armed to the teeth with awesome weaponry is sometimes not enough. That’s where accessories come in. Accessories are unique pieces of equipment with all manner of effects. One accessory might protect you against fire, while another might heal you when you’re poisoned. The right combination of accessories can create different strategic options for your adventure.
- MAKE USE OF THE ENVIRONMENT – As you explore the depths of Lost Ruin’s dimly lit dungeons, you will find that while everything around you might bring about your death, you can also use the environment around you to your advantage. Elements within the world will react with other elements realistically. Flammable liquids will be set ablaze when in contact with lit lanterns. Ice magic will freeze bodies of water, making them dangerously cold. The more you understand the environment and how to use it to your advantage, the more dangerous you will become.
