It’s the Perfect Halloween Game
MediEvil is a remake of the 1998 classic of the same name, and it comes to us via Other Ocean Emeryville, who have reanimated this cult-classic game for a new generation.
The beautiful thing about it is that there is something here for all ages. The combat is cartoonish, and while you will battle undead beasties and claim their essence in an attempt to fill the Chalice of Souls, it isn’t gratuitous.
In fact, in tone, it is fairly similar to something like Coraline, or The Nightmare Before Christmas (which was an inspiration for the original game). There are stakes to the story, a reason to see it through, but a healthy dose of humor is injected as well.
Maybe while you are waiting for trick or treaters to arrive, you could be battling your way through Gallowmere, as a way to pass the time?
