Official description
Olympia Rising is a 2D Action Adventure game reminiscent of the best 16-bit classics. Lush pixel graphics and fluid animation bring this ancient Greek-inspired world to life as you jump, climb, slash, and blast your way through various regions of the Underworld. Taking inspiration from beloved titles like Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kid Icarus, Olympia Rising delivers an exciting, action-filled experience.

- Play as Iola, a young heroine on a dangerous mission to escape from the Underworld and reach Mount Olympus - all for the purpose of discovering the reason behind her abrupt awakening and the strange memories that have been returning to her.

- Fight your way through the Underworld, battling creatures of all shapes and sizes. Fast-paced aerial combat propels you upward as you slash enemies to bits with your blade or incinerate them with powerful magic.

- Navigate through deadly environments with fluid maneuverability. Make your own paths as you traverse through each stage looking for the most efficient way to climb to the top.

- Simple to pick-up but difficult to master, Olympia Rising awards those willing to challenge themselves as they climb through the Underworld. Collect coins and other treasures scattered throughout the levels as you race through each stage. Progress is only awarded to those who pay Charon, the Ferryman, at the end of each stage with their collected valuables.

- Explore the unique, twisted environments of the Underworld - each offering different challenges and creatures to overcome.
