Overview

Cause some distress in this fast paced arcade platformer. Speed through each arena taking on vampires, rescuing hostages, disarming bombs, hacking servers and much more. Super tight and responsive controls let you take on the darkness with precision and style. Balance frenetic action with split second choices, and watch your back – you never know what direction the next vamp will come from! Armed with her powerful ultraviolet shotgun, Ra, make the undead see the light; or get in close and personal with devastating melee attacks. Or maybe, save up your shots and use Damsel’s powerful (and deadly) dash. 

String together attacks and movement while collecting the mysterious arcane skulls that litter each environment. Challenge yourself to pull off combos and special moves and wear your high score as a badge of honor! Experiment in each mission to discover that perfect sequence of moves and shots that maximize your effectiveness. Damsel is a ballet, and you’re the choreographer.

Hands On

Currently in Early Access and still under development Damsel is already shaping up to be an impressive action platformer. Tasked with controlling a female vampire the player has to navigate throughout locations with the task of beating evil vampires, saving hostages, collecting skulls and whole lot more. Jumping, shooting, traversing platforms and hanging from ledges are just a few of the features available throughout the levels. Failures aren’t as frustrating as one might think as the levels are so much fun. Often a slight change of approach and taking a different route can be enough to change that defeat into success.

The fluidity of gameplay really draws you in with impressive fast and free flowing combat. Initially the stages and enemies are easy to defeat however the challenge increases pretty hefty the further in you delve. Enemies came from all side, amongst the frantic action its all too easy to shoot a hostage thus ending the level in failure. Keeping composure during the most intense situations is vital for success though even with that in the back of your mind it can be easy to fire that extra shoot through all of the adrenaline.

An intriguing platformer with vampire frights.

Each level has it’s own task to complete in order to advance to the next which makes for a constantly changing gaming experience from each level to the next. For instance it could be collect all of the purple skulls, similar to Super Mario collecting coins. The next could be kill all enemies, hack laptops or crack the safes ect. High scores are gained at the completion of each level which adds an incentive to replay the levels to compete against existing scores.

Admittedly this First Look is only after a very short time playing the game. Within this time I have seen enough to see so much promise and a positive future for Damsel. Look forward to a full review soon.

Final Thought

Damsel is an easy to pick and play game for gamers of all skill levels. The game appeals to a wide variety of audiences as the vampire theme is intriguing and the platform genre is popular for kids, families and even the most skilled gamer. The fluid gameplay and good level design with keep you coming for more and more.
