Title: Riders of Asgard
Developer: Gobbo Games
What type of game is it?
What’s the 30 second elevator pitch?
It’s a 2D-viewpoint 3D BMX game where you can move through several layers performing various trick and jumps.
What do we like most about it?
There’s really not enough BMX or skateboarding games anymore, is there? Riders of Asgard might not have the high detail realism of certain games, the developers instead going for a thicker, more stylised appearance that gives it a passing resemblance to the family-friendly look of Microsoft’s first party Kinect games, or the wave of Wii Sports clones that rapidly followed the game (but didn’t use Miis) through the Wii’s life span. This isn’t a bad thing, family-friendly spells accessible, and -truth-be-told- the game’s physics and level layouts look solid, which is all you really need to ask for when it comes to a BMX game.
Oh – and the sound and music in the game looks to be completely solid too.
If you’re interested in trying the game early, the developers link out to a free copy of the game through their website on the Greenlight Page.
Anything else worth shouting about?
When’s it due?
Riders of Asgard doesn’t currently have a planned release date, however when it does launch it will do so for Windows PC, Mac & Linux.
