Strictly Limited Games, in partnership with Gameforge, are delighted to announce the upcoming release of Tiny Thor-Mjönir Edition, which also includes its predecessor Hammer Kid, which will be available for Nintendo Switch as a boxed Limited Edition with pre-orders kicking off on Sunday, August 6th, at 12 AM CET (midnight), only at Strictly Limited Games.
Tiny Thor is a love letter to the challenging action platformers of the 16-bit console era, with contributions by two legends of their respective fields. Sporting magnificent pixel art by artist Henk Nieborg to feast your eyes upon and a soundtrack by duo Chris Hülsbeck and Fabian Del Priore, together create a nostalgic and immersive experience that will tug at the heartstrings of every retro-gaming enthusiast.
One area where Tiny Thor doesn’t stray too much from its inspirations is the challenge it provides. The refined gameplay with its focus on using Mjölnir for attack as well as traversal helps to tackle the obstacles head on and rewards you with the ultimate satisfaction when succeeding. Starting as a straightforward jump’n’run, “Tiny Thor” evolves into a fully-fledged adventure as players unlock a plethora of abilities throughout the game. With over 30 beautifully designed levels spread across three unique realms, players will encounter thrilling boss battles that will challenge even the bravest of gods.
The version included here features additional gameplay refinements and fixes based on community feedback to make a great game even better.
Also, a download code for the awesome soundtrack!
Hammer Kid can be seen as the spiritual predecessor of Tiny Thor and features many of the same themes and gameplay beats that would be expanded upon and fleshed out for its younger brother. Beautiful pixel art, the hammer as a gameplay mechanic and nordic inspired setting among others find their start here.
While it is a simpler game overall, it’s fun to play in its own right and rounds out this release perfectly to get the whole hammer experience!
