Ardentryst

Ardentryst

Ardentryst is an action/RPG sidescroller, focused not just on fighting, but on story, and character development. Strategy as well as reflexes will be needed to win the game.

The game is set in another world. It is a cross between Donkey Kong Country, Mario, Castlevania and Kingdom Hearts. Ardentryst is focused on a fantasy world. The player is guided through a storyline which he or her must act in and play a major role in keeping peace and order in Ardentryst. It features two playable characters and a variety of weapons, items, armour, monsters, and beautiful level scenery and graphics.

The game combines elements of fighting, arcade, adventure, RPG and sidescrolling games to give it a unique genre. Its aim is to provide an enjoyable game to people of many ages from young to old, and to appeal to many types of gamers.

Ardentryst works much like any other platform game in a bigger sense: when you play the game, you move from level to level to play them, and after each, you unlock the next. The goal is, generally, to finish all the levels.

During each level, there are noticeable RPG and fantasy elements, like the HP/MP/affliction statuses, to name a few. Many of these elements have been carried over from traditional RPGs, like buying/selling items, attack/defence/endurance/luck/level-based character development, and of course, many different weapons and equipment to choose from.

The game also incorporates fighting-style combos in conjunction with magic spells for advanced battles.
