Developer: Pixel Lantern
Genres: Adventure, Platformer
This game takes inspiration from early 90's platforming classics such as "Rainbow Island", "Rick Dangerous" and "Alex Kidd in Miracle World", "Erik" and "Rodland", which at the time were popular on the Amiga and consoles. Bard's Gold is slower paced than most current day platformers, but is extemely challenging. Players need to avoid enemies, traps and projectiles in order to progress. Being hit by any of them means instant death. Difficult puzzles and towering bosses will have to be overcome to reach the filthy goblin that stole the family treasure.
Bard's Gold - Launch Trailer | PS4, PS Vita
Bard Gold is a decent little indie title, but it’s one specifically aimed at people who are into these roguelike games. Side scrolling, with a little dose of death and progression goes a long way to keep the game entertaining enough, but it just doesn’t do enough different or interesting things to garner much attention.
