Silver Night time’s Crusaders takes parts from a really acquainted gothic motion recreation and builds an entire new expertise in whipping horrific creatures.
Countess Bathory has been as much as some sacrificial shenanigans to maintain up her appears (presumably to maintain up her reputation on no matter handed for 17th century Instagram), so the church has dispatched some people to cope with it. Ethan has introduced a whip, Francis brings his vampiric powers, and Sheeba has introduced her huge scythe and magic skills. You possibly can shuffle round whoever you need to convey together with you to purge the countryside of evil, however personally, magic- and large scythe-using witches get my vote.
The sport is a ghoulish motion romp via some acquainted territories and towards some acquainted foes from that well-known retro horror recreation, retooling them to create a brand new expertise. It feels concurrently acquainted and fully totally different, providing a extra forgiving life system that goals to maintain you within the motion somewhat than having you restart the extent when you die. As a consequence, issues have a tendency to chop via you fairly shortly when you’re being clumsy (bosses, particularly), so I wouldn’t say it’s EASY. It simply FEELS much less punishing.
Silver Night time’s Crusaders is a welcome, pleasant recreation for somebody who’s been craving large monsters and the whipping thereof. Whereas it attracts loads from its inspirations, it builds on them in some enjoyable methods, and presents some nice new creature designs so as to add to the expertise. It’s additionally free, which makes it even tougher to show down. Not that I ever flip down an opportunity to whip my manner via gothic castles, ever.
Silver Night time’s Crusaders is obtainable at no cost on the developer’s web site.
