Your class options in Blade Hunter include the powerful knight who wields the power of swords, the rogue that has deadly skills of the night and the valkyrie who has the power of illusion and magic. Whichever class you choose for your Blade Hunter adventure you’ll have a great journey ahead of you as you master their unique skills and gear them up with the most powerful items that you can find.

Relying on pre-rendered sprites the game delivers crisp graphics for characters and backdrops that almost have a painted style look to them. This strong art style also extends to the enemies you’ll be facing which come in all sorts of strange shapes, sizes and colours to keep things interesting before landing that killing blow.

The core gameplay of Blade Hunter centres on various dungeons that challenge you in different ways and offer a variety of rewards. With a good range of themes to these dungeons and some epic boss fights to test you at the end it feels very satisfying over short play sessions.
