Today is good news for you, the players. Neowiz has announced that its hit action platformer Skul the hero killer is now available on the Epic Games Store. This special launch week also comes with another little treat, a 25% discount from the regular price of $19.99, which only lasts this week.
This new version of Skul the hero killer arrives 18 months after the game’s initial release on Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and aims to draw even more players into the wonderful and exciting world of Skul.
What is Skul the Hero Slayer about?
If you’re one of the few who don’t know Skul the hero killer, so we are here to tell you everything. It’s an action platformer using roguelike features, including an ever-changing and challenging array of maps. Players will need to be prepared for the tasks ahead, and each leg of the journey is as unexpected as the last.
The protagonist is called Skul, a hero you could easily mistake for a regular skeleton, but you couldn’t be more wrong. This fearsome figure has formidable combat skills and is capable of gaining exciting new abilities that depend on the skull he wears. You can use up to two skulls at once, and each individual skull has its own unique attack range, speed, and power to use at the right time.
It’s your responsibility to choose combos that perfectly suit your playstyle, and you must be prepared to change them in the manic battles that precede your character and the collection of enemies that come with it. You have in your hands all the power you will need; you will have to quickly learn how to exploit it. And finally, when each chapter ends in Skul the hero killeryou’ll be forced to face huge bosses corrupted by dark magic (and you thought Ring of Elden was hard). This dark magic is a powerful substance, and you should avoid it at all times as it controls everything it touches.
You’ll need to go to the Epic Games Store now if you want to join Skul the hero killer in his murderous mission.
