High Flying Antics Abound In Retro Platformer ZipWizard
One of the more interesting games that flew in under the radar at the tale end of last year was ZipWizard, a charming retro style action platformer that hearkens back to the MS-DOS era of sidescrollers. Created by indie developer Monster Logix, ZipWizard is a straightforward old school adventure game that challenges players with getting to the end of each level unscathed and making sure to pick up useful magic items along the way. A whole host of deadly creatures and tricky traps stand in the way of victory so with only 3 hearts to work with players will need to hone their old school platforming skills in order to succeed at bashing some sense into their digital nemesis. With its no-nonsense iap-free approach to game design where players only face ads when they die ZipWizard feels like a fair and refreshing throwback to the golden age of companies like Apogee. You can pick ZipWizard up for free on Google Play.
