Reviews

“The Waste Land is quite simply an exemplar Metroidvania style game that also brims with originality. It almost feels like a lost Castlevania game from the NES era that was recently unearthed.”
4.5/5 – Hardcore Gamer

“The side-scrolling 2D 8-bit graphics are perfectly crafted in an open world with a storyline that is fairly attractive. With over fifteen hours worth of gameplay, you can’t go wrong with this title.”
8.5/10 – 3rd Strike

“A great writer of the past and a great developer of the future have come together and created something memorable. Now that’s a legacy.”
5/5 – Invision Game Community

Eliot’s poem of the same name that is imbued with feelings of despair and lost innocence, puts players in the role of a fallen king who must find his way to right the wrongs caused by his own failings.

In The Waste Land you are the King Zyron III, ruler of all the known lands, who’s actions on a an ordinary hunting trip cause a rip in the balance of nature. Creatures mutate sending your once loyal subjects into a state of fear and it is up to you to set things right.
