Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom

A throwback to Sega’s Wonderboy series, Monster Boy is a platform game with a strong emphasis on classic gaming.

The main character is based on a fellow who’s grandma has gone insane and is transforming the townspeople into various creatures. The goal is to slash through each of these enemies until you reach the end of the game.

The player can change into various creatures himself, allowing for some amazing powerups and untethered abilities. In the shop, you can purchase various enhancements if you collect enough loot.

A game that features classic controls is not complete without the fantastic classic artwork of a 2D game. Although the scenes and characters are rendered in 3D, the game keeps to a traditional platformer style. Look for the game to be released in June of 2017 for the Nintendo Switch, Steam, PlayStation 4, and iOS.
