In our last preview of this 2D side-scrolling adventure game, we looked closely at how Phantomgate is mixing this style of presentation with its own riff on turn-based battles, as well as going deep into the story. Now sitting just a couple weeks away from release, we thought we’d dish the details regarding more about what the game has in-store for players.
Exploring the lay of the land
The deeper into Phantomgate you progress, the more its world will eventually begin to open up to you. That’s pretty normal for this type of game, right? Yet, here the way you move through it continues to change as Astrid gains more abilities and unlocks new areas. Players will quickly become familiar with Phantomgate’s 2D landscapes, running, jumping through it, before finally gaining the power to levitate.
