Battle Axe

Platforms: Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and Xbox formats

Release Date: April 2021

As described by the developers, Battle Axe is an action-packed, very gory, traditional Arcade adventure. Battle Axe boasts beautifully high-quality pixel art along with top-down hack and slash combat. The visuals are incredibly impressive and capture the 80s/90s D&D themed adventure games’ exact style and transport them into a modern performing franchise. Players can play as three different character classes all with their own methods and tactics for clearing rooms of classic fantasy monsters. The sprites look great, the maps look classic, and the character design transports me right back to Capcom’s D&D beat-em-ups. If you’re a fan of the genre Battle Axe can be in your hands in April 2021!

Numskull has been on something of a roll lately, and it seems like they’re gearing up for a strong year. Keep on the lookout for more coverage on these and other great titles as they release!
