'Sacred Stones' is an Unapologetically Hardcore Platformer, Out Now on Steam and Soon for Switch and Mobile

For me, the two magic words are "retro" and "platformer" and developer NoxBix is promising heaps of both in their new game Sacred Stones. It's a fast-paced action platformer that has you shooting enemies using a unique set of weaponry and getting into a whopping 20 different boss fights over the course of the game. Sacred Stones is not afraid to tell you that it's a super hard game, and that you're going to die a lot while playing. But it's all in the name of fun and satisfaction, and the boss-centric focus and the unique strategies afforded by the different types of weapons in the game are what really stand out to me. You can see it all on display in the following trailer...
