Bossgard is an unusual action game, prepared primarily for the asymmetric multiplayer mode in which a Viking team faces a powerful boss controlled by another player. The title was developed by an independent company Sand Sailor Studio (creator of Black The Fall).
The action in Bossgard is observed from the isometric perspective. One of the players control a monster. There are several variants to choose from, but most often they are quite funny (e.g. a giant, ominous... slice of bread). The monster's goal is to defeat the Vikings controlled by the other participants (maximum 5 of them). Viking players can choose from different characters - they can fight in close combat (using various weapons like axes, hammers, etc.) or shoot with a bow. Their task is to defeat the monster.
We can play Bossgard alone or with others, but the production has been developed primarily for multiplayer mode (local and online).
Bossgard has quite an interesting three-dimensional graphic design. Although in terms of technology this game is unlikely to make anyone's heart beat faster, the humorous, simple artistic style fits in well with its unusual atmosphere and makes everything transparent and easy to notice during intense action.
