Are you looking to relive the 16-bit glory days of yesteryear? Were you amazed by Super Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts? Fox n Forests should be something for you.
Bonus Level Entertainment and their publisher, EuroVideo, have today announced that the 2D action platformer, Fox n Forests, will be coming to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC in the spring of 2018.
Inspired by the classics such as Super Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, Wonder Boy in Monster World, ActRaiser 2, and the Castlevania and Zelda series’, Fox n Forests sees players take on the role of Rick the Fox.
Equipped with a magical crossbow that grants the ability to change between two seasons in a level, Rick can freeze his surroundings in winter, and is able to create new platforms out of falling leaves in autumn.
He also has a host of other powers available to him and it will be only by mastering the seasons will Rick be able to outfox his enemies, explore the mystic forest, solve brain-teasing puzzles, claim victory against colossal bosses, and bring the mystery of the fifth season to light.
As you would expect from something that has been created with the classics in mind, Fox n Forests will combine retro charms with a more modern game design, ensuring that the 16-bit visuals and chiptune soundtrack, help make the game both accessible and challenging.
“FOX n FORESTS will surely speak to a wide audience,” says Marc Wardenga, Head of Games at EuroVideo. “References to the golden age of classic 16-Bit games, mixed with a unique soundtrack and contemporary, precise, and accessible gameplay, will bring back fond memories of retro games.”
