James and his near-swearing first impressions of Olympia Rising.
From the developer Paleozoic: Olympia Rising is a 2-D action platformer starring Iola – a young warrior who has been cast into the Underworld after meeting an untimely end. She must navigate through the various twisted regions of Hades’ domain, fighting through hoards of deadly creatures as she attempts her escape, making her way to Mount Olympus. Lush pixel graphics and fluid animation bring this stylized world to life as you jump, climb, slash, and incinerate your way through each stage.Taking inspiration from beloved titles such as Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kid Icarus, Olympia Rising delivers an exciting, action-filled experience.
