The title is a kind of Bastion combined with Castle Crashers and The Legend of Zelda. Players take on the role of warriors who travel through a variety of fantastic locations, including the beyond, a level inspired by the Pac-Man series and the famous Q*bert.
Our main goal is to explore and fight the enemies we meet. The game is not too complicated, because developers tried to capture the spirit of older games. The combat system does not require players to use advanced tactics or to learn complex combos by heart. What counts instead is fast action and demolition of the environment. Locations built of voxelas can be destroyed. Admittedly, we cannot disperse everything into dust, but nothing stands in the way of, for example, shattering the rocks blocking the further road or slowing down a few columns.
During the clashes the heroes use a variety of weapons. They can, for example, shoot with guns, waving the sword, or use exploding barrels on certain levels and throw them at enemies.
The game has an arcade character and is focused primarily on good fun with friends. In this respect Riverbond The PC, PS4 and XONE version offers a local co-op mode for up to 4 people.
Riverbond was created using Unity technology. This motor drives a number of other productions, including Endless Space 2 and SUPERHOT. The game uses a simple graphical style - on the screen we observe angular characters moving through colorful locations shown in isometric projection. Developers, however, took care of more advanced effects accompanying mainly the explosions, but above all to maintain a light, humorous climate.
