Young Souls Review
Posted: 7 weeks ago, last updated 11 days ago.
Jenn and Tristan, orphaned at a young age, have become social outcasts and troublemakers. They discover a portal into another dimension, ruled by goblins and other fell creatures. You fight to bridge these two very strange and different worlds to save the one person who accepted who you are.
Gameplay is primarily combat with swords and other melee weapons to inflict damage on enemies. You can upgrade your weapons and abilities, and customise your appearance. Each weapon has different strengths and weaknesses, so picking the right one for the right place is essential. In between fights, you can train in the gym with mini-games that improve your strength and ability further.
It's a novel blend of side-scrolling action and emotional storytelling that, when paired with its deep combat, upgrade system and cooperative gameplay, makes it a unique offering about identity and redemption and the power of thwaking monsters over the head.
As it is played in a 2D plane, the way to go is clear and obvious. The text is all high contrast, but not all of it is large. The subtitles are placed in a speech bubble which a picture of the speaker which conveys their tone. You can also disable all profanity from appearing in the speech of the game.
