When it comes to the “Souls-like” genre, there are many games that try to force their own identity through their gameplay, design or mechanics. Ashen does none of that and yet it manages to be one of the most unique experiences you will have when playing a game from the genre. Ashen even borrows its name from ‘The Ashen One’ from Dark Souls III. The game is liberal in its choice to borrow Dark Souls’ progression system and combat mechanics. However, the game manages to offer a unique world and there are co-op features thrown in as well. If you like the Dark Souls series but have been too scared to delve in due to the challenging gameplay the games are known for, Ashen is a great way to start off. When it comes to bosses, you are presented with just 5 in the base game which is quite less when you compare it to the likes of Dark Souls. The enemies are quite challenging to beat and you have to spend some time learning the movement and attack patterns to truly master the game.
If you are a fan of Norse mythology, you will be familiar with the tale of Lagertha, the shield maiden. Your fate is determined by three Norns who weave the fates of every living being with their sacred loom. With your destiny being shattered because of Loki’s interference, you get thrown into the nine Norse worlds that are connected by Yggdrasil to uncover the mystery of your fate. Unlike most of the other titles of the genre, Eitr is not particularly demanding when it comes to system specs. Despite the 2D art, the developers made sure that the worlds look beautiful with lush animations and amazing visual effects. Movement and weapon usage are key to survival just like any other Souls-like game. You get to learn a number of new attacks as you make your way past nightmarish creatures and terrifying warriors who want to stop you. Instead of the traditional experience point system that you would find in standard RPGs, you are presented with a Favor system instead. You have the option of choosing between your standard upgrades and more powerful enhancements and perks that get weaker each time you die. The loot system is completely random and the durability system makes it very important for you to manage your items better. Overall, Eitr is one of the best indie Souls-like games ever made because of its brilliant presentation in an isometric view.
