Lush pixel graphics and fluid animation bring this stylized world to life as you jump, climb, slash, and incinerate your way through each stage.Taking inspiration from beloved titles such as Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kid Icarus, Olympia Rising delivers an exciting, action-filled experience.

- Navigate through deadly environments with fluid maneuverability. Make your own paths as you traverse through each stage looking for the most efficient way to climb to the top.

- Fierce boss encounters await Iola at the end of each Underworldy region - from gargantuan crabs to bone-crunching cyclops'.

-Chain enemy kills as you jump through the air - build up a big combo to earn even more coins to pay Charon the Ferryman and pass through the many gates of the Underworld.

- Simple to pick-up but difficult to master, Olympia Rising awards those willing to challenge themselves as they climb through the Underworld. Collect coins and other treasures scattered throughout the levels as you race through each stage.

Olympia Rising reviews and comments

What is Olympia Rising? A Jump and Run which reminds me a little of Sonic And They Bleed Pixels. It's a Mix of a Jump n run with such a Kind Of Spindash and a Hack and Slay, which gives the Game something standalone. As the Name suggests, it plays in the Spanish Legendary country On what is made a lot of Reference in the Game. There is also a normal Memory Function and a Password system that I haven't seen in playing for a long time. The Game Mechanics consist of butchering with the Sword, firing Fireballs, Executing "Spindash" and Skill Deposits, which are difficult but never inept due to the good Controls. In the rough and all, Olympia Rising is a heavy But still very good Action Jump n Run. Thumbs up.

Short Review after the first Boss. I Like very much. Olympia Rising is not a Metroidvania, but rather according to the Tradition of Castlevania 1, 3 and 4. The Control is sensitive to the Sea, but everything is relatively fluid. Look and Music perfect. First couple Of levels very straight and simple, after which you can choose a Course through the Level yourself. Difficulty fits like this. Positives:-Optics, Music, atmosphere-Difficulty fits-Level construction so far exciting-Very easy to Control, liquid negative seems:-Control something too sensitive, only controllable with Control cross and not with Analog stick-No "leave game" point in the Menu , with Esc not leaving the Game either, only ALT+F4-Game lets you hang on When Starting and Leaving the whole Computer for several Seconds

With Olympia Rising, a fast and demanding 2D Platformer Awaits you in a Retro look. The Control is also adapted from the "good old Days," you could also play the Game confidently with ' a nice NES pad, because in addition to the Directional buttons you only need one to Jump and Hit. Specialmoves are triggered by simple Double Clicks. The Game itself is about escaping from the Underworld and getting the Ferryman enough Coins to drive you up the Styx a little Bit further. As in all Role models, the Levels alternate Thematically and introduce Increasingly powerful Enemies to genre. Also in Olympia Rising a Boss is fought at the end of each Section and he leaves a Heart after his Death, which brings in An HP container (as for example in Zelda). As mentioned at the beginning, the Game is quite fast and, in my Opinion, more challenging than, for example, "Rogue Legacy" and offers a nice Chiptune Underpainting. Unfortunately, with three to four Hours of Play quite short, especially since there seems to be no possibility to increase the Level of difficulty. The Game is only available in English, with the required Language Skills running zero. There is nothing more than "Start Game" and "Set Music Level." On Youtube I found a nice Gamplay, which illustrates the Game perfectly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2R_R3IjD1s
