Xenon Valkyrie is a platform game enriched with RPG and roguelike elements. The game made its debut on PCs (the computer version was developed by an independent Spanish studio Diabolical Mind), and after less than a year it was released on consoles (titles as Xenon Valkyrie+, the work of the French studio COWCAT).

Plot

In Xenon Valkyrie, the storyline plays a supporting role. In the course of the game, players take on the role of one of the three heroes, in whose skin they travel through the labyrinths under the surface of the moon, and finally stand face to face with a sinister witch.

Mechanics

In Xenon Valkyrie we observe the action from a lateral perspective. The overriding element of the game is the exploration of successive levels sharpened by the platforms on which we jump, as well as various traps and other obstacles that make it difficult for us to reach the target. It is complicated by the fact that death is permenanent here, and the various stages are generated procedurally - so each time you start an adventure, you have to face different challenges.

Therefore, you should also be on your guard during the fight with your opponents, which you eliminate with the use of various weapons acquired during the adventure. Among the enemies, powerhouses lead the way, usually oversized bosses endowed with much greater resistance to damage and attack strength than their smaller kinsmen. Fortunately, it is not only an extensive arsenal that comes in handy, but also the ability to develop abilities (unique for each of the three protagonists) - in return for killing enemies, they receive experience points and advance to the next level, which allows them to increase their combat potential.

Technical aspects

Xenon Valkyrie refers to the eight- and sixteen-bit roots of the genre through both gameplay mechanics and the audiovisual layer. The graphic design was kept in a pixelart style, while the fun is accompanied by a chiptune soundtrack.
