A decent platformer hack and slash concept, unique graphic and promising gameplay that got ruined by terrible implementation especially when dealing with netcode. I'm pretty sure, since the game supports coop over Steamworks, the game will be much more fun when playing with friends coop...if it actually works. What's worse, the Developers have never attempted to fix it.

And you can never save the game offline - it only supports Steam Cloud.

One sentence of advice: Don't buy this game - tell the game developers that abandon the game early with your wallet.

Not Very Exciting

I played this with my girlfriend (who likes classic beat-em-ups such as Streets of Rage 2) and after Act 1's boss we said, "Ok let's keep playing!"

But as we played, our enthusiasm kept dropping slowly. There wasn't really much to the game. There are only 4 acts and our characters became so over-powered by the end of the game that we just wanted to get it over with. We didn't even use the special, power enhancing crystals once.

- Graphics are nice but sometimes I lost my character in some chaotic battles. The Act 1 boss was the only unique fight in the entire game (except MAYBE the last boss, but that's pushing it).
- Music was fine (some of it sounding like Golden Axe at times)
- Sound needed more "umph" to make me feel like my hits were doing any damage. The sound could have helped make the game more exciting if they put more effort into it.
- Controls were easy but the game can be beaten with one simple attack combo for the entire time and then the "special move" saved for boss fights.

As of this writing the game sells for $15 (before sale discounts) and I'd have to say I'd pay at most half that price for Sacred Citadel if you have run out of beat=em-ups to play.

I bought 4 copies of it. Good game but waste of money.

Piece of ♥♥♥♥ support. Buggy as hell and developers do not care to fix it.

DO NOT BUY. Go play Caddilacs and Dianosors; much better.

Beautiful old time platform game ! It is fun, nice animation and graphics and nice co-op.

Sadly, its a small game, easily finished within 3 hours !

I would recommend buying it, if you have someone to play with or at a good discount.

I just played this with my friend and it's really a great game. Amazing visuals, wide variety of enemies, environments and great local co-op gameplay.

After the resolution fix for 1920x1080 everything looks great. I'm glad they have a DLC and I hope they continue to add more and maybe even some other characters because it's one of my favorites and highly underrated.
