“A fun little fantasy platformer, The Skylia Prophecy makes for a charming throwback to the early days of gaming”
7/10 – Pure Nintendo

“The Skylia Prophecy is an action-platformer that manages to rise above the average through its quirks and charm. What it lacks in deep combat, it makes up for with an experience that’s surprising and unexpectedly ambitious.”
3,5/5 – The X-Box Hub

“The Skylia Prophecy does a good job of keeping a lot of the elements that make 2D side-scrolling action games a fun genre. It does come with its share of challenges, but that does not truly detract from the gameplay. For hardcore fans of 2D side-scrolling action RPGs, The Skylia Prophecy is definitely a game you can have fun in. Just be patient.”
7/10 – But Why Tho?

About This Game

Mirenia is an 18 year old girl on a quest for redemption. After unleashing an evil power when she was a teenager, she is now on her way to Tirkin Fortress to perform an ancient spell that should help her vanquish the very evil she unleashed three years ago.
Now, nearing the end of her quest, she arrives in the villages just outside the fortress, where monsters ravage, young women are being raped and men are being slaughtered. Armed with her trusted Shield Blade, Mirenia is so close of undoing the mistakes of her past. Will she succeed or ultimately only make matters worse?

The Skylia Prophecy is a sidescrolling action-rpg platformer set in a medieval fantasy world, based on the great Arcade hits of the past. As Mirenia, you will journey throughout the lands and towns, explore ancient dungeons and battle hordes of the undead in this hard as hell adventure inspired by the 'kill the player' philosophy of the 'Souls' games. Along your way you will meet the people of these lands, who will ask you to help them, sell you powerful items and reveal secrets to aid you on your journey. Not a traditional metroidvania game, but with elements of the genre, the scaled back combat rewards patience - the game is not unfair, but you have to pay attention! By interacting with the townsfolk, you will ultimately recieve rewards that make the game easier in the long run - thus, you set the difficulty for the final strech yourself!

Will you find redemption or ultimately end up among the dead?

The Skylia Prophecy will challenge you on every turn with its hard but fair difficulty, powerful bosses and exploration-based riddles.

  • Upgrade Mirenia with a level and magic system
  • Over a dozen different locations
  • Beautiful pixel-art
  • Story-driven exploration
  • Tough-as-nails difficulty
  • Atmospheric Music
  • Challenging and complex boss battles

Please read the instruction manual if you require assistance.

If you buy this game, you get the game "The Masked Mage" for free.

Controller Information:
Due to limitations with the engine, some controllers may not work properly. There is, unfortunately, nothing I can do about that. Should you have any trouble with your gamepad, maybe try another gamepad or use the keyboard. I apologize for the inconvenience.
