Developed by Storybird Games and published by PixelHeart, Golden Force is now available on the Xbox One. The King of Demons and his nefarious army are after the luscious Muscle Island, and have commenced an invasion. The game’s band of rag-tag anti-heroes – including a swordsman, a purple-haired pirate, a knightly dragon, and a power-armoured gent with a funny moustache – set off to save the land for a good cause in exchange for a fair reward, i.e. a mountain of cash.
Many monsters and traps lay ahead, but you can put your loot to good use by purchasing special items to help you explore the four different worlds rife with hidden objects and secret levels. And if you really can’t do it on your own, you can always ask a buddy to help you in has a 2-player co-op mode.
We reviewed Golden Force for Switch, and felt like its stiff controls and steep difficulty curve did it more harm than help. Nevertheless, if you feel up to the challenge, you can check out the trailer below:
