Developers Dinofarm Games have announced that their monster jostling turn-based tactic title Auro: A Monster-Bumping Adventure is now available on Steam. You can check out the game in action in the trailer below:
Players guide young Prince Auro through procedurally generated battle arenas in a competition against rival kingdoms known as the “Bumping Games”. Wielding a variety of magical spells, Auro demonstrates his awesome power by skillfully bumping monsters into the water surrounding the arena. Compete with other kingdoms in a unique “single-player competitive” experience.
Auro introduces the idea of a single-player competitive strategy game experience. Players face off against memorable characters to find out who’s the finest monster-bumper in the land. Auro’s gameplay is entirely deterministic – no dice-rolls! Synergize your abilities together to send monsters careening to the watery depths and score huge combos – all illustrated in colorful hand-made pixel art to an original, thematic soundtrack.
At launch, the game will have nine tactical spells which have been carefully balanced so that each match feels fresh. The Bumping Games get harder and harder the more you win, unleashing new challenges and unlocking new monsters. Those challenges prompt players to come up with creative answers, combining spells in never-before-seen ways, with dramatic, often hilarious outcomes.
