The Arkedo Series, an anthology of games by Arkedo Studio, is a throwback to times long past. When games were more about the intense challenge that came through hard and sometimes frustrating game design than they were about technical breakthroughs. A time when games didn’t hold the player’s hand as much and respected them as a player.
The download comes with three of the games previously released on the PlayStation Network, including JUMP!, a collect-a-thon game where the player must grab bombs and escape before time runs out. SWAP!, a puzzle game where the player must match four or more blocks of the same color in a row by swapping them around. Last, but not least, PIXEL!, an action-adventure style platformer where the player takes control of a cat and navigates through treacherous worlds.
