Salt and Sanctuary review
by treesniffingzombie

It took me a few tries to really get into this game, but ultimately I've found myself really, really getting into it. It's a worthy Soulslike Metroidvania.

If you liked the Review and want to discover more great Games, take a look at my Curator Page. A Follow me very happy Salt and Sanctuary is a heavy Metroidvania that is strongly oriented towards the Dark Souls series and which really does very well, but also adds enough Peculiarity. The Boss fights are varied and demanding. Fans of Dark Souls will have their Fun. The Full Review is also Youtube: https://youtu.be/ABEElIK_rF0

What is it? A 2D Mix of Dark Souls and Metroidvania, with a Focus on the Elements of Dark Souls. There's an atmospherically dense World with a vaguely told story, discovering and exploring many areas, leveling yourself and your own Gear, and, of course, passing cracking Fights. I was out on the Island for 16 Hours and enjoyed it all the time. The Learning Curve I found very pleasant and never felt the Game was unfair when I once blessed the Temporal.

Castlevania meets Dark Souls. This is probably the most apt Description for this extraordinary Platformer of American indie developers SKA. The Game serves anyone who craves the hard-hitting Gameplay of the Dark Souls series, but at the same time offers a refreshingly new gameplay perspective that simply motivates you to Continue playing. In my Eyes, one of the best Games of the Year so far and an Insider tip for anyone who loves Castlevania, Metroid or Dark Souls (or all together). https://youtu.be/VkGXTMAQYf8

Salt and Sanctuary is great! So Much before ... S & S may take over the Basic Mechanics and Game Design from the big Dark Souls Franchise. But Does this very well. Developed by the ska studios, behind stretching only 2 People stuck, you notice that very much Love is in this 2D Dark Soul. We explore beautifully designed Areas that are quite alternately designed. It's expecting a cracking Fight. And a very varied Character Development that allows us a la Dark Souls to shape our Character in every Direction of play. From the heavily armored Knight to the nimble thief or strong Magician, we can adjust everything as you wish. And then the Countless objects that find it and its Usefulness we have to come to know. At nice Regular Intervals a tough Boss fight awaits us, which well and gladly need some Attempts until you have laid them and can continue your Journey with satisfaction ... And then there's the PVP and the Co-op mode! Oh man, that can be a few more Hours ... Graphic style: 8/10 Atmosphere: 6/10 Level Worlddesign: 7/10 Playing: 9/10 Multiplayer: 6/10-------------------------Total: 8/10 Conclusion: GANZ KLAR TO EMPFEHLEN (not just for Souls Lovers!)
