Paramorphos is a PS1 styled third person action RPG with an authentically clunky pre-dual-analog stick control scheme as you battle monsters in an abandoned monastery.
Created for the Keep Calm, Do Games game jam, Paramorphos not only looks like a PS1 game, it plays like one too. Your blonde haired knight sets out on a short, but fun little adventure where you fight monsters, collect useful items and attempt to make your way through a monastery. Interestingly the control scheme is based on what an original PS1 control pad could do (so no dual analog) and your character’s stamina bar also acts as a shield (so when it’s fully depleted you’ll lose health when attacked).
Taking around 15 minutes to play through, the clunky control scheme of Paramorphos may put many off, but it’s certainly worth checking out if you’re looking for an authentic feeling PS1 action RPG excepence. The PS1 styled visuals look great and it’s a lot of fun trying to figure out how to take down multiple enemies when you don’t have the mobility afforded in modern games. See if you can escape the monastery!
