A frog is given a sword and a mission deep within a swamp in another dimension. Tasked with using its new blade to defeat the other creatures of these shadowy lands, players will need to help the frog overcome four masters in one-on-one duels in Frog Souls.
Frog Souls has players sharing their floating lily pad with another hostile creature, dodging and countering their powerful attacks with little room to move. Luckily, as a frog, a powerful hop will carry players above most of what their enemy can do, but many of their foes can jump right up after them, filling the air with damaging beams and sword strikes. Surviving will require players know when to jump and how high in order to weave through all that’s coming for them, as well as finding opportunities to swing back.
As players overcome their fellow swamp-dwellers, they’ll unlock new hats, weapons, and power-ups that will bolster their strength. Should they poke around a bit, they may also find some secret routes that will lead to hidden bosses, helpful friends, or rings that will change up how the game plays.
With a Commodore-inspired look, an almost-eerie sound, and a surprisingly bleak story about warrior amphibians, Frog Souls promises an intriguing journey through a hazy, deadly marsh.
