Juniper Keep Assassins - A retro inspired action platformer that's pretty cool!


Putting aside the homebrew retro games for the moment as we are now looking towards a new action platformer called ' Juniper Keep Assassins ' developed by Crowno for the A Game By Its Cover 2017. This game which I found today, came across as a mix between Switchblade on the Amiga, with a hint of Ninja Gaiden blended with some sort of cute anime look. It features colorful graphics, smooth animations, wall climbing abilities, a great retro inspired chiptune and plenty of enemies to defeat with a variety of moves.


I was able to give the game a quick go today and apart from the weird graphical glitches I was experiencing on the tree's, this game is a highly recommended Indie game that's well worth playing more than just a few times. In truth it makes me feel like I'm playing an old school SNES game with it's lovely pixel art, retro styled sound effects and kick ass moves such as flying kicks and martial art powers. So yes I 100% recommend this game to anyone.
