Harold is back

Harold is back

Harold started with a preview, before becoming a full review and getting some more video coverage so people would realize there was a lot more than met the eye. Harold was also a great livestream with two of his makers and it's about to be back. Starting tomorrow, Harold will also be a less hardcore iOS game either available for free (with ads and constant online connection) or for $2.99 (no ads and possibility to play offline). Later this year, it will be an Android game, before it can finally become a console game one day (2017?). Last but not least, Harold is about to be a cheaper game on PC very soon (it should be around s10), so if you're interested check Steam once in a while until it happens. Harold only needs a twist of fate (or faith maybe) to meet with success, which it truly deserves. Will you be his guardian angel?



Press release


Harold’s going to need a miracle to get through this adventure in one piece… That’s where you come in!
As the guardian angel-in-training, control the environment in this exciting mix between Platformer and Runner and help Harold win each race!
Summon all your might to get Harold safely across more than 100 visually gorgeous obstacle courses...


UNIQUE AND INTUITIVE GAMEPLAY:
Harold's refreshing gameplay (a unique mix between a Platformer and a Runner) allows the player to use his angelic powers to clear the path for Harold while delaying the other racers just long enough for him to win.

FUN AND ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE:
Fun and accessible to everyone. Harold is easy for all ages to pick up and play, but still challenging for the ones who truly want to become a real Guardian Angel!

BEAUTIFUL HAND-DRAWN GRAPHICS AND ANIMATIONS:
Inspired by classic 2D animated films, Harold’s richly drawn characters and vibrant background sceneries are a perfect match for its absurd comic premise, which creates one of the most visually stunning and stylistic experiences in gaming.

ACTION-PACKED RACING:
Harold will need all the help he can while jumping, swinging and sliding across many treacherous environmental hazards that litter each level.
With more than 100 unique and varied levels across gorgeous environments like Beaches, Forest, Desert, etc....
Each level offers multiple ways to victory that will require skill and determination to master.

BECOME A TRUE GUARDIAN ANGEL:
*COLLECT ALL WING RINGS spread out in each level to WIN 3 Stars!
*Finish FIRST PLACE in every race!
*Find the SECRET SHORTCUTS hidden in every race!

Don't think I've seen a mobile game with this level of production value. Creative but familiar. Looking forward to this one.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Surely you can spot the differences. (2 Hours ago)
