Shadowcrypt is a brutal and unrelenting arcade game inspired by NES classics such as Zelda II and Castlevania. Engage in tactical sword & shield combat where quick reflexes, timing, and observation are key to survive the deadly catacomb! You play as a hero who is the last of an ancient order sworn to battle corrupted sorcerers. Pick up weapon upgrades along the way, find the Necromancer and defeat his horde of undead warriors through a series of labyrinthine rooms and torch-lit corridors.
Brutal, but so satisfying! Atmosphere and combat work together to provide quite the white knuckle ride, despite the slow and deliberate pace (which works in the game's favor). Gives me a sense of ACTUAL peril, creating a lot of tension that you don't find in many games these days.
