Description

Angvik is a side-scrolling platform action game set in a fantasy a world. The player starts the game by choosing the role of the father's occupation. There are six roles to choose from: king, lancer, shepherd, paladin, bottler, and peasant. Each role consists of different weapons (some with different abilities), armor, and items. At the start of the game, the player's father sits near the edge of the screen with his equipment waiting to be taken. That is if the player survives the first encounter, which is a monkey running back and forth.

Combat consists of activating the right or left hand, depending on which weapon (if any) is being held. Weapons and armor are not permanent items and may be damaged and eventually destroyed. Although the player cannot attack enemies unarmed, jumping on them will damage them. Additionally, defeated enemies may drop eggs, which may be hatched to provide a sort of special attack. Permadeth is also in affect.

Screenshots

Angvik Windows Thanks for the gear, father. Now how to use this sword? Oops. The king is dead. Long live the king!
Angvik Windows The lancer apparently can throw both his lances at the enemy. An unorthodox use for a lance.
Angvik Windows Choosing a class indirectly. The character gets to inherit his father's equipment.
Angvik Windows The lancer's armor also freezes the enemy when the lancer has been touched by the enemy. Unfortunately also destroys the armor in the process.
