Crossing Souls is an action-adventure with RPG touches set in a pixeled California. Control five characters: Chris, Matt, Charlie, Big Joe and Kevin. Each one has unique skills and their own combat style. Fight in real-time combats, solve diverse puzzles, beat powerful bosses and play special levels inspired by 80’s arcade videogames. As the game progresses you can unlock new items and abilities that will be helpful for this world-saving adventure. Fights and puzzles will become more difficult, so you’d better have a well-planned strategy.

Feel the eighties - Do you feel that? Do you smell that? Yeah, it's the eighties. A story set in 1986 full of references such as The Goonies, Gremlins, Back to the Future and many more.
Do you like Cartoons? - The cutscenes are inspired by 80's cartoons, totally original and never seen before in a videogame.
Why is this happening? - Be part of a journey between two realms, two realities: life and death. The story includes a government conspiracy, thousand-year-old characters, cowboys, pirates, ice cream, pizza, cheeseburgers, basketball… well, you got it.
This music rocks! - An original score that includes tracks inspired by John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith as well as radical Synth-Pop in the purest 80’s style. Play as if it was one of your favorite movies!
Ready? Fight! - You can kick multiple enemies in the ass stylishly. Fight against street gangs, a secret army, dead monsters, creepy ghosts and many more in frantic real-time combats where a good strategy will be essential to win. Main characters have unique talents and aptitudes.

Crossing Souls reviews and comments

The game play of crossing souls reminds of a lot of old games ranging from Zelda link to the past, castelvania 4 of the Super Nintendo, Metro cross of the Amstrad 6128 and more, and it is very successful, small beug with my controller x box in the level of the forest and a There, my character was going from time to left for no reason, not obvious because you had to make jumps quite precise, I solved this problem using my PS4 controller, and to report a small prob in the translation when discussing with the characters s in the level where you go to the library, not that there are mistakes in spelling, but the sentences are poorly built of the style "you have to save the locals" but nothing very serious, fights with bosses seem difficult at first seen , but they are always the same sequence of action, once those included, we beat them very easily! crossing souls is excellent!

Crossing souls, is a small action/adventure game in pixel art that is worth the detour, we return in the years 80 with a graphic style in pixel art and cinematics in old cartoon, all accompanied by an electro/synthwave music perfectly in the spirit of the 80 's. The gameplay will make us go through phases of platform, headache, and combat, adding a touch of exploration to find some collectibles/Easter eggs, best boss await us in this game, which looks cute, but hides a story full of rebounding and drama. Negative point the game is extremely short (> 10h even for those who take their time), and I think that one can add to the taste of each in the category "neutral": the fights are difficult and will give the thread to be twisted. Crossing souls will occupy you an afternoon or two before being disinstalled but will leave you very good memories of a perfectly successful game.

Wonderful, incredibly loving Game! The Controls and Performance are 1A, the Translation absolutely top, the Humour is really funny and well done And the 80 ' s Synthwave Music gives the Game a very great, nostalgic Feeling. The Cities and Places are very extensive and detailed, there are small Corners and Things to discover everywhere, Residents or figures to appeal to, the Dialogues make fun and besides the Main Characters there are even some Minor characters a little deeper Developed. I would really say so far: So and no different Has to be a Game, because Crossing Souls really shines at all Levels. The only thing I would like to see would be free Saving, but that's really just a Trifle. Otherwise, a very warming, charming Feeling is left behind. A Game you look forward to and sit down on. With its own character in our Day and age, where there are many soulless Games with no identity of their own. If necessary, I will expand the Review in the Future, you can look in with me if you want to get more gameplay impressions:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucfbCyP20BI&list=PLio4F_5RbmFwy6qbf76i77y7qYdIUAaGU
Incredible combo of slasher, platformer and a puzzle game. You switch between characters, each of them has a well written personality and a unique performance. The plot is unpredictable and interesting, the game is worth to finish. The game pretends to feelretro, with this neon pixel style and music from 80s. You’ll be glad to find multiple references to pop culture there. Absolutely recommended - a great game, really. 
The story seems to be interesting but I wasn’t patient enough to finish it. The game is too difficult and becomes totally frustrating. The lack of save points ruins all the fun this game can be. It should be balanced better to be enjoyable.
