The twin-stick shooter genre will soon be going medieval in the palm of your hands.
Tikipod has announced that Iron Crypticle will be heading to Nintendo Switch sometime in Early 2019. The arcade dungeon game takes visual inspiration from Ghosts ‘n Goblins, and includes an option for four player couch co-op.
Tikipod did not mention further launch details, however.
In the meantime, check out the game’s original trailer and Steam description below.
Cryptonia’s princess and the glorious Royal Treasures of Cryptonia have been abducted!
The washed-up kingsguard must leap into action and plunge down into the ancient magical crypts on a rescue mission!
If you want to survive past the Guardian Monsters of each floor then you’ll need to upgrade your abilities. Speed, Damage, Fire Rateand Weapon Duration can all be upgraded either from shops or through careful chaining gobbling up food pickups. Most enemies drop a food item (delicious cheese, slices of cake, lollipops, hotdogs, fruit…) with which you need to juggle chain-collecting, all whilst slashing your way through hordes of ghastly creatures.
Route selection is very important too, with each floor made up of a branching system of rooms. Each room type has their advantages and disadvantages – plus with each play through the rooms all shift about and reform, just to keep you on your toes! To help you on your quest are a range of weapons, magical scrolls and items to unlock. For close combat emergencies you can rely on your dash move for quick escape, or activate your Atomic Fist to punch a hole in the enemy ranks. Be sure to visit the cat merchant to see what is on offer. Or try the arcade room to earn extra coins and health.
