Song of Iron Release Date



Song of Iron is an action game in which we play the Viking in a desire for vengeance. The author of this production is Joe Winter, and it is the debut project of his indie one-man studio, Escape.


Song of Iron takes us on a journey into the world from the Nordic mythology. In the course of the game, we play the Viking whose ancestors were abandoned by the gods. The ancient power of his people was lost without trace, and his kingdoms began to fall one by one. The hero sets out on a journey to find the gods and regain their grace, and to take revenge on the oppressors of his fellow men.


In Song of Iron, we observe the action from the side, from a camera placed near our hero. During the game, we go to the right and eliminate the ranks of opponents. The hero makes use of an axe that incinerates his opponents and a shield to protect him from enemy attacks. In addition, there is a bow that allows him to eliminate adversaries from a safe distance. Both men and monsters of all kinds stand in his way, headed by powerful trolls. Although the hero is a battle-hardened warrior, this does not make him untouchable, so when we see that the enemies have a huge advantage over us, it is often worth trying to sneak behind their backs. Besides, when playing, remember to replenish the quiver, as well as the shield, which is destroyed as you use it.

Technical aspects

Song of Iron has high quality 2.5D graphics. Not only the realistic animations of characters and monsters (with spectacular and bloody attacks at the forefront), but also an interesting stylistics make a good impression; the colours are subdued and the locations are bathed in darkness and fog, which creates a unique atmosphere.
