Helvetii is a 2D Action game with a strong Celtic theme. The story follows three characters that players can control. These include a fierce war chief, a fox man, and a druid. Each character has very different personalities as well as different abilities.
The scenario involves a pact made by the war chief and one of the playable characters, Divico. He inadvertently causes a curse to be placed on the land when he subjugates part of the Roman army. His pact turns into a curse which causes rot to fill the land. He joins forces with his half-beast and druid friend to try and right the wrongs of the land. The story involves the three characters exploring the land and looking for ways to turn back the curse, so that the land can be restored to its original beauty. Each one has their own reasons for joining this quest. The game looks to be vaguely along the lines of Clan O'Conall and the Crown of the Stag, but with better graphics.
Master All Gameplay
Although you can get powerups and other helpful items through the games, your core move sets are enough to help you get through the game. By making it so that the core move set itself is useful all the way through, it encourages players to take their time and master the combos needed to win.
It’s worthwhile to master all the different characters. Each one has something unique to provide as far as combat, with different abilities. Although the abilities and styles are different, the combos you memorize are the same. This helps you focus on mastery without losing anything to switching characters. Once you have learned the combo sets on one character, you can safely switch to another to see if their abilities better match your needs without losing anything.
Uncover the Lore
Helvetii is filled with Celtic and Gallic lore, as well as Germanic and Swiss legends. The developers have a passion for precise combat mechanics, and have worked hard to make this the main focus of the game. Players who appreciate combat mechanics will love the precision of this game, combined with the incredible artwork.
Easy to Learn, Hard to Master
The developers have made an effort to make this game friendly towards new players, without compromising the challenge for older players. On top of mastering the combos from the game, players can also pick up power ups in the game.
These power ups come in the form of lost treasures, blessings from the gods, and items you can purchase. They offer helpful boosts that can make playing the game easier.
Helvetii has yet to be released, and so it is difficult to truly determine what sort of game it will be. There’s currently very little information available. What we can glean from the trailers and developer updates however, is that this game has had a lot of loved poured into it.
