ScourgeBringer is a fast running jumping and shooting game. You play Kyhra who must slash her way through ancient machines guarding the seal of her past. It's hard and unforgiving, but offers a free flowing exploration and battling that can be tailored to suit most abilities.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world you navigate and battle through ancient machines. The action is fast, frantic and a little overwhelming at first. But as you progress and acclimatise to the pace (and use the great accessibility options if you like) an unusual and compelling experience can be found.

As with other rogue-like platform games, the difficulty is intentional. Half the fun is attempting the big challenge getting as far as you can and then (inevitably) dying. This takes you back to the start but with a slightly progressed character and more experience for your next run.

ScourgeBringer doubles down on this difficulty by forcing you to focus on offence rather than caution. The fluid movement and fast enemies require you to learn the controls well enough to let your instincts guide you. If you manage that it can become a fluid and almost balletic experience.

Rated PEGI 12 for mild swearing.

ESRB TEEN for blood and violence.


You can adjust the difficulty by setting the game speed (10-100%). You can also lower the pressure from time-limited events by switching those timers off. You can turn on an auto-attack option to reduce the need for rapid pressing of attack button. The game has mainual aiming enabled by default, however, the controls were designed to be very friendly for auto-aim.
