Arthurian Legends is a retro styled medieval first person action game where you punch, slice and shoot your way through demonic beasts and nefarious Saxons in an Arthurian fantasy land.
Taking place before the time of Camelot, Arthurian Legends is a first person action game set in a medieval fantasy land that’s been corrupted by the misuse of powerful magic. You now need to battling demonic monsters and saxons as you try and stop the darkness that’s spreading across the land.
The gameplay and visual style of Arthurian Legends feels fondly reminiscent of the classic DOOM/Hexen era of 90’s FPS games, with sprite bases enemies, fast paced gameplay and plenty of bloody violence. There’s a nice selection of weaponry to discover in the demo, from throwing axes to bastard swords and grenades, all of which are a lot of fun to use. You can also use shields, which really come in handy for blocking enemy attacks in close range melee combat.
It’s a hell of a lot of fun, with satisfying combat, well designed levels, a nice sense of humor and lots of fun little secrets and clever touches. Some particularly nice touches involve being able to smash your way through locked doors and the retro digitized characters. A fantastic old school hack n slash adventure that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Highly recommended.
