Treasure Adventure World for PC is an independent adventure game with platforming elements. The game is a remake of a free-to-play title from 2011 developed by Robit Studios. During the development cycle, Chucklefish, the team responsible for Starbound, supported the authors.
Once upon a time, a scary monster destroying everything that was found on his path threatened Earth. Finally, a powerful sorcerer defeated him using the power of twelve mysterious treasures. Unfortunately, the clash took a certain toll on our world continents were divided into small islands. Numerous years after this event, a young boy embarks on a journey to find the missing artifacts, a quest that will require a lot of effort and bravery.
The mechanics of Treasure Adventure World are built from numerous trademark elements found in a few different genres, including adventure, platform, or logic games. Moreover, the game contains multiple references to old-school titles such as Metroid or Zelda. The gameplay is similar to that of a side-scroller our hero jumps through chasms, uses hanging chains to get further ahead, encounters various opponents, and solves simple puzzles. Further into the game, we receive the ability to dive, as well as to dig tunnels. Our mission requires us to use boats to be able to get from one island to another. Sometimes, sea monsters that have to be fending off using cannons interrupt such journeys.
As the game progresses, our hero gains new experience levels, increasing his health points and overall strength. Moreover, coins found during our travels can be spent on new items that facilitate the gameplay.
The combat is rather simple, as there is only one button responsible for attack. We are armed with a single weapon, a portable hook that is also used during climbing. The hero encounters a few different types of enemies, yet they are mostly different in looks and the style of movement. From time to time, our hero faces bosses (including ghosts, phantoms, medusas, or a huge octopus) that require much more skill and effort.
The new version of Treasure Adventure World has similar graphics to its 2010 predecessor, yet the authors decided to introduce sharper and colorful visuals that nevertheless keep with the spirit of the original game. Weve also received new riddles, treasures, as well as a new soundtrack.
