Neat retro side-scrolling action game coming soon.

Look and feel of an Arcade game from 1985-1987
6 challenging levels, with secrets
14 bosses and more than 40 enemies
50 minutes of gameplay
4 different endings based on merits
Backgrounds, characters and creatures based in medieval myths from Spain and the rest of Europe

There's a demo here:

The game is freeware as I understand. Will definitely check the full version out.

Arghhhh. its one of those "be sure to collect 5 crystals before you reach the end or you get game over!" games. Argghhhhhhhhh. Those levels were pretty infuriating too. And I don't know what the incentive to beating it under 5 credits, because on your 4th continue, you sell your "soul."

No way I'm doing that either. The knockback onto spikes = insta death mechanic was super frustrating. I liked the game though. Maybe I'll try again some other time, when I know all the crystal locations.
