Aggelos treads a path many others have followed in recent years, but it does it all with a charm of its own.

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.

Overall, this is a great little retro adventure that doesn't outstay its welcome. It plays like a top tier title from back in the day, presents you with the sort of gameplay you want and expect from this type of game and serves it all up at a pace with such consistent quality that it's hard not to be won over, no matter how fatigued you may be by the idea of another blast of old school pixel action.

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.

Although there are far better choices in the ever-growing Switch library, Aggelos is a love letter to action platformers of the eighties and early nineties that will make people in their thirties smile.

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.

. If you can put up with its more archaic elements, the retro style, creative level design, and wealth of upgrades to uncover might make it worth your time—but I wouldn't go as far as calling Aggelos "the perfect combination of retro style and modern-day game design

Aggelos works great as both a homage to the source material and as a game on its own merit. The faithful reproduction of the Wonder Boy style still holds up today, and while the new powers don't significantly change things for the better, they don't detract from the game, either. The gameplay is solid, and the gameplay length comes in at a good running time, so you'll get your money's worth from the experience even before you set out to play it again on Hard mode. With a great presentation backing up the entire experience, Aggelos is a great title for classic adventure platformer fans.

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.
