REZ PLZ is a logic platformer, in which players take on the role of one of the wizard brothers having the power of resurrection and set out to help the land in which evil has taken root. The main attraction is a two-player co-op mode. Long Neck Games is responsible for the title.
Dark Arcanum is a place ruled by five evil mages. Two brothers, Arcan and Zeph, decide to face them, but their journey is full of dangers that could end in a tragic death. But they have a powerful resurrection spell scroll, so they don't really care about monsters or traps, as they can always resurrect each other. The adventure can continue when at least one of them remains alive.
REZ PLZ is a logic platformer observed from the side, in which we play the role of two mages. The game is reminiscent of Trine, but here we experience much more death and in a much more brutal form. Especially since death is an indispensable part of the game and many puzzles require us to sacrifice one of the brothers in order to continue the journey. We will be burned alive, dismembered, crushed, devoured by beasts and experience many other types of death. Fortunately we have the aforementioned resurrection scroll, so that the death of one of the brothers is only temporary.
As the game progresses, the brothers gradually acquire new powers and spells to solve increasingly difficult puzzles, allowing them to reach further in the Dark Arcanum. The land is divided into five different biomes filled with unique traps and monsters, and at the end of each an evil magician is waiting to be confronted. And when we're done playing, we can sit back and try the additional modes we've unlocked. An example of one of them is the possibility to race against another player.
During the game we find various cosmetic accessories, thanks to which we will adjust the appearance of our hero according to our tastes.
The game is aimed at cooperation for two players, but it is not obligatory and the game can be played in single-player mode as well.
REZ PLZ features pixel-art visuals, and the appearance of the characters is clearly inspired by Japanese productions.
