Prepare to jump, smash, and laugh your way through two side-scrolling platformer gems with The Adventures of Panzer: Legacy Collection. This collection bundles both The Adventures of Panzer and its action-packed sequel, offering hours of nostalgic fun and challenging adventures for players of all levels.
Originally launched as a Kickstarter for NES (with physical cartridge release) back in 2021, The Adventures of Panzer is now heading to Xbox Series S & X, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 & 5 on January 26th, 2024.
Classic meets quirky
The original The Adventures of Panzer throws you into a retro pixelated world as you control the legendary retired raid leader, Panzer, and his trusty sidekick Blarghe. This unforgiving platformer demands constant movement and quick thinking, with its raw and simple design creating some truly impressive challenges. Don’t expect hand-holding here; it’s all about pushing forward and mastering the quirky charm of a bygone era.
Evolved and accessible
The Adventures of Panzer 2 builds on the success of the first game, making it more accessible without sacrificing the core gameplay. Quality-of-life features like level select, upgrades, and multiple playable characters (including the agile hunter Kankaro, the powerful mage Ahzriaz, and the explosive troll Vespeto) make for a smoother and more enjoyable experience. The level design is richer and more forgiving, while the boss fights are even more epic and explosive.
