Freedom Planet

Freedom Planet – Run, fight, and maneuver through the colorful 2D world of Avalice!

The planet Avalice has long known a tenuous peace thanks to the Kingdom Stone: an orb of unknown origin that outputs enough free energy to power every device in the world, seemingly without limit.

The Kingdom Stone is beginning to weaken, however, and the planet’s three ruling houses are poised to engage in all-out war over control of this most precious resource. Add to that a coup d’etat within one of these houses – instigated by an invading alien army – and Avalice’s future is looking grim.

Enter, our three unlikely protagonists: the dragon, Sash Lilac, who unwittingly gets involved when she witnesses a strange airship crash-land and grows concerned for the well-being of its pilot; the wildcat, Carol Tea, whose dedication to her best friend leads her to undertake whatever challenges fate throws her way; and the orphaned puppy, Milla Basset, whose quest for nothing more than mere companionship inadvertently brings her directly into the line of fire.

Together, this trio of anthropomorphized heroines must somehow ingratiate themselves to each of the three houses, stop an all-out alien invasion, and learn the secret nature of the Kingdom Stone before its power wanes…and before a world war breaks out around them.

Freedom Planet is a fast-paced combat-driven platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against hostile foreign powers and alien attack forces. There’s trouble around every turn, from insects to giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but players will have a variety of special fighting abilities at their disposal to blast through more than a dozen massive, nonlinear stages. The campaign may be played through as Lilac, Carol, or the unlockable Milla, each of whom has completely unique gameplay mechanics, an altered story mode in which the selected character takes the lead, and even a few of her own unique stages.Freedom Planet

KEY FEATURES

Gorgeous 2D pixel art with meticulous detail and a grand, rocking soundtrack

Three playable characters with completely different strengths and abilities

Momentum-based platforming and combat in a wide variety of settings

Use the game’s tight controls to reach incredible speeds and heights, exploring massive stages full of secrets, alternate paths, and hidden collectibles. Send enemies flying, fight screen-filling bosses, dodge lasers, ride mine carts, hop from airship to airship, and more!

Follow the story, or just play the game; it’s all up to you

Play in “Adventure Mode” to enjoy the game’s intense and dramatic story, with over an hour of unique cutscenes and full voice-acting, or pick “Classic Mode” to do away with cutscenes entirely and simply play the stages for a streamlined gameplay experience.

Haunted Dungeons : Hyakki Castle

Haunted Dungeons: Hyakki Castle – Fast-Paced Real Time Dungeon x Edo Japanese Yokai Folklore

The Yokai in Hyakki Castle

The game reproduces Yokai from ancient Japanese literature, including the giant skeleton Gasha Dokuro and a Yokai made up of a woman’s head and arm. Many creepy and terrifying monsters will appear. They await your secret agents (players) in Hyakki Castle.

Powerful bosses will be unleashed at certain points as you make your way up through the castle. Aim for the tower, where the master of the castle awaits!

Main Theme: Dan no Ura

Dan no Ura, an original song by the Biwa player Sae Ishida, creates a creepy atmosphere.

About Real Time Dungeon RPGs

“Real time dungeon RPGs play like an action game, in which you move around and fight on a floor with a grid layout. With the exception of some portions, the game plays out in real time.

When in combat, the enemy won’t wait for your attack. Battle by avoiding enemy attacks and timing your own attacks at the right moment.”

A Yokai-Filled Castle with Death Looming Around the Corner

The player’s secret agents will storm Hyakki Castle, where formidable Yokai and terrifying traps await.

Be careful. One miss will cost you your life.

Eat the food you find in the castle to survive. An empty stomach will lower your stats.

There’s nowhere to relax in this castle. Eat, sleep, destroy Yokai, and search the castle.

In the Yokai-filled Hyakki Castle, you’re always one step away from death.

The 2 Party System

The game has a split party system that uses the Tokugawa treasure item Ishin no Ofuda.

The player can freely split up into two parties at any time (the game will go into split screen mode). When necessary, split into two teams to deal with the traps and challenges in the room.

In addition, the party you aren’t controlling will use spells to temporarily harden themselves, increasing their stamina.

Attack enemies from the rear to deal massive damage.

Use the hardened party with high stamina as a decoy, and send the other around to the back.

Mini Metro

Mini Metro – Get the city moving

Eventually your network will fail. Stations will open too quickly. Commuters will crowd the platforms. How long the city keeps moving is up to you.

Key Features

  •  Compelling, constructive, hectic, relaxed gameplay. If that makes sense.
  •  3 game modes: Normal for quick games, Endless for stress-free play, and Extreme for the ultimate challenge.
