Aggelos is a Wonder Boy in Monster World-inspired retro platformer, available now on the PC

PQube, LookAtMyGame and developer Wonderboy Bobi have announced that Aggelos, a new, retro-styled 2D action-adventure, is now available on Steam. Aggelos is described as a mesmerizing new action-RPG that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 16-bit era but plays like a modern-day marvel.

Inspired by non-linear Japanese retro adventures such as Wonder Boy In Monster World, Aggelos hurls players into the middle of a colossal struggle for survival as beings from another dimension threaten to invade the peaceful Kingdom of Lumen.

Here are the game’s key features:

A vast kingdom to explore
Venture through forests, seas, cave systems and ancient temples as you seek to uncover the magical elements needed to save the world from total annihilation.

A classical non-linear adventure
Explore a sprawling world that gradually reveals itself, Metroidvania-style, as you gain new abilities and equipment.

Deadly encounters
Thwart towering bosses and their tricky minions as you take on perilous mainline quests and optional odd-jobs for the people of Lumen.

Tactical depth
Unlock magical abilities and high-level attacks, expertly chaining these immense powers together to clear screens of enemies in seconds.

Stunning sprite art
Forget out-of-place modern art: Aggelos boasts superlative character designs and animations while remaining proudly, and faithfully, 16-bit through and through.

Memorable chiptunes
Lose yourself to a retro-inspired soundtrack that floods the Kingdom of Lumen with life.

Enjoy!
