Prepare to fight your way through doomed lands and face devilish enemies – all to a chorus of heavy metal music – as Slain! arrives for PC today. The new side-scroller from Wolf Brew Games is available now, letting you take on the role of the hero known as Bathoryn.
In Slain!, you’ll traverse a Gothic world, seeking to liberate the great towers from their deadly overlords. The hero Bathoryn must battle his way through a doomed land packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending or descending each tower, defeating puzzles, traps and monsters along the way.
At the heart of each tower, he must confront a mighty overlord. Defeat it and Bathoryn’s quest continues. Fail, and you’ll die gruesomely – mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail…
Sounds tough, eh? Well, luckily Wolf Brew have happily given some tips on the three masteries you’ll need to succeed in Slain!
Learn to wield 3 deadly elemental weapons, each one exploiting weaknesses in different enemy types. Each weapon has a different combo, timing and ‘ideal’ use. Mastering quick switching between weapons is the key to success.
Learn placement and timings of enemies and traps.
Generate, conserve and use your mana wisely.
Slain! is available for PC players now, and you can purchase the game via Steam.
