Bear in mind the semi-amazing SNES recreation Actraiser? It had unimaginable graphics for the period, and was additionally notable for being a fantasy hack-n-slash recreation blended with simulation components. Actraiser is again at the moment on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Change, PC, iOS, and Android in a full remaster with Actraiser Renaissance. Take a look at the launch trailer under:
Yep, in Actraiser you undergo sidescrolling levels and tackle big bosses, however you additionally play god and attempt to hold your cities secure and affluent in a kind of Sim Metropolis-style phase between excursions into ranges. It’s sort of an odd combine, however again then, it completely labored.
I’ve a mushy spot for Actraiser, so that is positively on my pickup checklist. Gamers can swap between the outdated soundtrack and the remastered/rearranged one as effectively, with some new music. The remaster additionally contains some new levels and new boss battles, so there’s one thing for outdated veterans which have performed via the now-ancient cart many instances.
