Aggelos reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Product received for free developed by Storybird games and published by Pqube and look at my game, here is wonderboy... UH no no no rectification here Aggelos, an action RPG output straight from the 16-bit era that strangely resembles wonderboy. But is he at the height of the masterpiece? This is our express test. To the discovery of Aggelos. Let's go back to the era when the 16 bits reigned as master, while remaining in 2018 because Aggelos was released on 19 June 2018, and yet runs on a 16-bit engine. Aggelos is a captivating RPG action that makes us travel in a non-linear retro Japanese adventure such as the famous wonderboy. You find yourself immersed in the peaceful Kingdom of lumen, where you will have to fight another dimension that is about to invade the Kingdom. you will be launched into 2 D battles, using the codes of an RPG action, with its quests and dynamic battles. Aggelos offers a vast world traversing several landscapes such as forests, the sea, caves, ancient temples, but also gigantic castles. The more you advance in history, the more you unlock new abilities but also new equipment, indispensable to the smooth running of your main quest, save the Kingdom of lumen. The game offers a multitude of side quests, which will sometimes ask you to make big round trip, a bit painful, but you will always be rewarded at your fair value. The game of Storybird games, unfortunately offers no French version, but the quests remain quite simple, and even for those who do not master the language of Shakespeare, will be able to end quite easily from the game. The beginning of the game remains quite complex, and one tends to die easily against monsters rather formidable, but it is just waiting to recover enough money to buy your first real sword but also your equipment. Once you are ready for battle, you will only have to fight against the threat of the other dimension. Aggelos offers a 16-bit retro style with fluidity in animations and a faithful design of the time. Of course, you can't talk retro without authentic Chiptunes, and once again, you'll be transported into the Kingdom of lumen by a magical soundtrack and tailored to every step of your journey. Finally, it can be said that Aggelos is as perfect as wonderboy, or even better. Offering a fairly original story, and a few side quests that provide a consistent lifespan, the game will easily plunge you into a 16-bit era, while offering a modern dynamism. With a French translation, the game could affect a wider audience, a pity. Editor's Note: 7/10-a modern retro game succeeds, but sometimes lacks logic and is blocked without knowing why.
