This is the dragon's curse remake that we SHOULD have gotten, in lieu of the flash-graphic-esque monstrosity that we were served. I highly recommend this game to everyone that likes the style.

Tight controls and a perfectly vintage soundtrack make Aggelos a game that should be enjoyable by anyone that loves the 8/16-bit eras of gaming.

All in all? This game is nothing too impressive. You’re better off playing actual classic titles because at least those have way more to offer than this game. Not saying that this game is totally bad, but it could have been so much more.

Aggelos sticks pretty rigidly to the classics script, and while that means getting bogged down by questionable design choices, it also makes for a great modern classic that relies on good level design instead of randomly generated levels

Aggelos is an almost perfect homage to the good of days of the 16 bits, and future classic, given us the same soul and focus of some of the best SEGA and Nintendo classics. It might not be perfect, but it is a really fun time.

Aggelos is a memorable adventure game, which brings to the present the best of the past.

Aggelos was a big surprise. Having played a bunch of Metroidvanias in the past year, most of them ended up being well-made but lacked some sort of hook to keep me playing, and the few that did ended up being something that went above and beyond. Yet in this case, the game benefits from going back to the roots and being a throwback done right, going for both authenticity and accessibility that made the six hour adventure well worth every single minute, even during the frustrating bits.

The game is highly recommended and a gem to have in our collection. It has recently been marketed in physical format for a ridiculous price (€ 19.95 for PS4 and € 24.95 in the case of Nintendo Switch), so I would personally recommend that if you like the genre, go for it, It will make you have a great time reliving what has been a very dear time for video games for me.

Aggelos is a pleasant game that should interest every fan of classic adventure games. Its gameplay and style are a mix of Wonder Boy and Shovel Knight/Hollow Knight. Music, graphics and controls are simple, but surprisingly good.

It may not be as frustrating as the classic games it is trying to imitate but it is no less challenging. The graphics and musical choices are some of the most calculated choices in retro-style games that make Aggelos feel like a re-release of a 30 year old game which I think was the point here.
