Stroopwafel Game Studios' Eye of Prophecy is an intense action-adventure title with a striking aesthetic and no shortage of grisly creatures to fell. It's set in a once-idyllic world now ravaged by Galosh, the God of Chaos. You take on the role of a tribesman, Themba, who sets out to save his people and navigate the Eternal Labyrinth to put an end to Galosh's reign of terror.
On his quest, he'll take on an army of foul monsters while he gradually hones his skills in combat and learns to overcome what initially may seem like an insurmountable challenge. Dotted throughout the Labyrinth are coins which can be collected to upgrade Themba's speed, strength, and resistance.
At its core, Eye of Prophecy is a tricky dungeon crawler with some neat roguelike elements thrown in for good measure. At launch, there are 24 procedurally-generated levels to complete and 3 epic boss fights to test your mettle on. The compelling retro vibe is helped along by an atmospheric chiptune soundtrack and some impressive 8-bit pixel art.
All told, it looks like a really good time for fans of the genre. I like its aesthetic, and the trailer's intense atmosphere has me intrigued. If you fancy checking it out, you'll find Eye of Prophecy available for download now from Google Play for free.
