The Retro Room Games has announced the official release of Magic and Legend: Time Knights, allowing players to embark on a nostalgic pixel-art quest to save the world from evil aliens bent on taking over the world. The action platformer is now available for Game Boy and Game Boy Color and offers a true retro experience across five levels.
In Magic and Legend: Time Knights, players follow the story of the titular heroes as they travel through time to defeat evil invaders. Both Magic and Legend have their own unique abilities, allowing players to experiment with the right tactics and get a feel for the playstyle that best suits them. Of course, if they can’t come to a decision (because both are equally fun to use), they can switch between the two characters anytime, anywhere.
Based on the official trailer, there also appears to be a bonus stage, along with five wildly different levels for players to tinker with. The game can be purchased by players in its original cartridge form, with a box that stays true to the other titles on the console. An extensive manual is also included.
If you’re eager to experience the game for yourself, you can purchase Magic and Legend: Time Knights from the official website for $42.99 a pop or your local equivalent.
