This is an interesting pixelated platformer with a twist – you have only the one attempt to save the princess. Brought to us by Magiko Gaming, an indie game studio, Platformance is a series of releases which focuses on platform gaming. So far there are two games under the Platformance banner – Platformance : Castle Pain, which is the first game in the Platformance series and Platformance: Temple Death.
Platformance : Castle Pain is a solo played game complimented with a chiptune track and riddled with evil objects and hurdles that are there to achieve only one thing – to stop you from rescuing the Princess! The types of object out to kill you range from spikes to fire balls, a deadly sea horse to human combusting… bird poo ??
You will need to platform your way to the end using just your jumping ability. To help you can make use of the zoom function giving you a view of the entire map!
The one over arching villain to be wary of is the Ghost. This ectoplasmic beastie will cause you to game over immediately unlike everything else which will take you back to the current check point. So if you wish to finish the game you will need to be very cautious of this guy ! !
Here is the blurb from their website;
“Can you save the princess? Will you get to the end of Castle Pain (and brag about it on the scoreboards) ? As an heavily armoured knight you must succeed in various challenging platform goodness: Slalom between bird droppings, avoid giant fireballs, flee from the ghost, escape a giant octopus, brave blood thirsty bats and much more… Let the quest begin!”
Here is their official trailer:
This game is available on multiple platforms – so get it !
