Retro Metroidvania Saving Princess Blasts Onto Android

An ambitious new retro style ‘metroidvania’ game by the name of Saving Princess has arrived that brings back the air of Super Metroid with a bit of Mega Man throw in to boot. Created by indie developer Jacob Pavone, Saving Princess is impressive in its commitment to recreating the magic of the games it takes influence from with polished design elements that go beyond simply using pixel graphics as mere window dressing. In this modern blast from the past players take on the role of an intergalactic asset recovery operative tasked with ex-filtrating a space princess from a massive fortress-like space station before rogue elements like bounty hunters and killer machines get to her first. This serves as the backdrop for a great Metroid-esque adventure complete with unlockable weaponry and fearsome bosses. Saving Princess also includes full controller support which will be welcome news to the old school purists out there. You can pick it up now for about 3 bucks on Google Play.
