Axes and Arrows is an action-combat platformer for up to 4 players. The game features competitive local Multiplayer and an expansive quest mode which can be played solo or two player cooperatively. The core mechanics aim to be simple and intuitive, all the while maintaining a fast pace to the action. You're equipped with arrow projectiles, a melee attack, and a dash move. Each attack can be used offensively or defensively, rewarding the player for quick reflexes and movement with finesse. There's also a unique cannon mechanic in place of the standard respawn system. At the beginning of each match and for each life your character enters the battle being launched by a siege cannon that is controlled by the player. If you can crash within range of the opponent you can score an immediate kill, which is a great way to shift the odds of a match.
The game is currently scheduled for a June 16, 2015 release date on PC, but you can download and play the Alpha on the website AxesAndArrows.com, and if you'd like to see it sooner you can help vote for the game on Steam Greenlight Link Here.
