Back in the days of Duran Duran, neon clothing and yuppies, isometric arcade adventures were all the rage.
As with the Tomb Raider games, it’s a mix of puzzle-solving and tomb-exploring peppered with some shooting. But instead of spending hours looking at Lara’s backside it’s all seen from an isometric perspective.
All very retro.
As a single-player game it’s decent old school fun with a dash of Diablo for good measure and a greater emphasis on shooting than normal for Lara.
But it really comes into its own as a two-player game, where you work together to blast away the demons unleashed by a curse and crack the game’s various puzzles. And yes, in true retro fashion, you can play it in the same room.
For nostalgic gamers it’s a chance to relive old memories, for everyone else an opportunity to find out why the oldies get all excited by all these isometric games.
