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.

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.

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 executed with the bright-eyed innocence of someone who loves Wonder Boy and Metroidvania. While it does little to innovate, it succeeds in providing a well-crafted, intricate world that leaves you with a lasting sense of discovery.

Aggelos it's a time travel, an adventure in the vein of those that we enjoyed in the 16-bit era, An oversaturated genre even in Switch (pixel art, platforming and 2D metroidvania action) with a style of gameplay adapted to nowaday tastes. It's not an innovative title, but it's fun, pretty and its right pace helps to get hooked till the end.

Aggelos is a clear homage to the 16 bit classics that will be addictive for veterans and newbies to the metroidvania genre. Despite a very cliche plot and a gameplay a little simplistic, Aggelos is a game that succeed on it's main goals.

It’s a great Metroidvania, action RPG with beautiful retro graphics and audio and fun combat and abilities. A couple old school mechanics may turn some away but otherwise this is a quality title.

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 takes you to the past. Hard Bosses, lovely Dungeons and Vast environment to explore will be awesome for you if you like metroidvania style games. I wish there was more changes to gameplay when you level up, but that's not the thing to keep you from playing Agellos, because it is one of the best in its genre.
