The platformer is certainly experiencing its share of releases lately, and we have another coming this spring. Fox n Forests is looking to give you all the 16-bit goodness you remember without having to blow the dust out of a cartridge. It even has a chiptune soundtrack for you purists.
As Rick the Fox, you will use your crossbow and the ability to change seasons to successfully navigate the forest and defeat tricky bosses. You can plunge the level into winter or change the season to fall to create new platforms and paths.
The developer looked to titles such as Super Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, ActRaiser 2, and Castlevania for inspiration for its 16-bit design. Those games were a little more difficult, but Fox n Forests is promised to be both challenging and accessible. Well, we can meet the skill level of one of those.
The trailer is really a step back in time. If you miss those old school games, give it a watch and prepare your reflexes for when Fox n Forests launches later this spring.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
