The Curse of Issyos is available on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV!

The Curse of Issyos is now out on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV!

Classic 8-bit gameplay meets Greek mythology in this addictive neo-retro arcade platformer by Locomalito and Gryzor87.

The Curse of Issyos is a retro-styled action platformer with nothing but the classics of an old 8-bit game: a good bunch of enemies and bosses, linear and open scroll levels, secrets to discover, and a background story inspired by Greek mythology. It doesn’t try to mimic any retro system in particular, but is coherent with its own limitations in the use of colors, sprites and chip sounds.

Defkalion was fishing at the quiet blue sea when he heard the voice of goddess Athena. “Hurry up”, she said. “The Isle of Issyos has been cursed by the Olympus!”

And so, fearing for his daughter Delia, his only family left, the fisherman sails back to his home, where the adventure is about to begin.

The Curse of Issyos was inspired by the movies of the special effects titan Ray Harryhausen and 8-bit games like Vampire Killer, Rastan, Kenseiden, Rygar, 8 Eyes and Ninja Gaiden.

As a kid, Locomalito liked sketching platformer games based on Greek myths – so it was just a matter of time that he made one.

A mature bearded protagonist in a video game was a rare occurrence when the development of The Curse of Issyos started. Then came the rise of hipster fashion…

While the trends keep changing, the atmosphere of the game, made of the uncommon combination of visuals, sounds and carefully designed playability, stays relevant at any time, keeping the old fans entertained since the original release in 2015, and getting more gamers into its unique world where Ancient Greece meets retro gaming.

Abylight has again polished the game to bring the best experience to users of Apple devices, now supporting controllers, touch controls and saving progress via iCloud.
