We've said it before but Songbringer from Wizard Fu Games (Nathanael Weiss) is like Classic Nintendo by the way of the Star Wars Cantina. Out on PC (here's a GOG link) and PS4, the sci-fi psychedelic action-RPG is 8-bit Zelda done right. And thankfully, it plays just about as good as it looks.


Make no mistake about it, in terms of structure this is classic The Legend of Zelda. After your spaceship crashes on the surface of Songbringer’s strange but sort of familiar planet, the first cave you enter presents you with a sword. A space sword. Kind of. One of the first secondary skills you learn is a boomerang-ability that comes in the form of a top hat to throw around. That you can also wear. Dungeons are numbered sequentially, each providing new challenges, puzzles, and bosses to overcome with additional health rewards provided upon completion in the form of Dragon Teeth.
