Description

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is presented as a vinyl disc with different tracks that act as episodes. It is set in the Caucasus Mountains and stars The Scythian, a female character that embarks on a quest. A side-scrolling platformer in appearance, it is much closer to an adventure game with nods to the likes of Zelda. It is largely focused on exploration, has environment puzzles that are mandatory to progress, and includes classic combat sequences. There is also a focus on sound and music, and it has a distinct retro 8-bit art style.

During her quest The Scythian meets many characters, such as Girl and Logfella. There is also The Archetype, an omniscient character that appears to narrate the story (first-person, "we") and calls her quest a session of trials. He appears in between episodes as an interlude and often urges the player to take a rest.

On mobile devices the entire game is navigated through touch-based controls. Moving around is done by tapping or by holding down a finger and moving along a path. Actions are performed by tapping twice and pinching is used to zoom. During fights tapping an attack or a shield icon is required. Rotating the device 90 degrees is needed to take out the sword, initiate fights and also to open the Megatome when the book has been discovered. The latter often acts as a hint system. During her quest The Scythian gradually learns new abilities that allow her to manipulate objects in the environment. It is possible to die during fights and progress is saved automatically. On the PC the touch-based input has been reworked with point-and-click mouse control. Tilting the device has been replaced by rotating the image on the screen with a key.
