Full review

Edgar is a captivating steampunk-inspired 2D platformer that immerses players into a mysterious and hostile world filled with traps, puzzles, and enemies. Drawing inspiration from the legendary writer Edgar Allan Poe, this game delivers a poetic narrative intertwined with quotes from his most famous stories.

The levels in Edgar are like chapters in an otherworldly novel, each named after one of Poe's works and featuring its own distinct theme. As you navigate through the challenges that lie ahead, you'll find yourself captivated by the immersive atmosphere created by the intricate level design.

To survive this perilous journey, players must rely not only on their platforming skills but also on their strategic thinking. Armed with a Rapier as your primary weapon, you can engage in thrilling hack 'n' slash combat against formidable enemies. But what sets Edgar apart is its unique ghost shift ability โ€“ allowing you to phase shift out of harm's way or scout ahead to plan your next move tactfully.

While indulging in the enthralling gameplay is an experience in itself, developers have gone above and beyond to empower players creatively. With the inclusion of a Level Editor for Unity 2019 (please note that it requires downloading third-party packages), aspiring level designers can unleash their imagination by crafting custom levels to share within the community โ€“ broadening both replayability and camaraderie among fellow gamers.

In conclusion, if you're seeking an enjoyable yet challenging retro-style platformer rooted in steampunk aesthetics with elements of hacking-and-slashing excitement fused seamlessly together with ingenious puzzle-solving mechanicsโ€“ look no further than Edgar! Brace yourself for an adventure steeped in nostalgia while simultaneously pushing boundaries within this beloved genre.
