The Banketh (09-01-2017) (Demo) (NES Game)

RETRONES Software are heavily working on their project The Banketh.

The game is linear adventure type, but with small details of exploration.

It is composed of 5 levels, plus 4 sub-levels that make connection between the previous ones. In this way, the first level is a culvert, the second level is an office, the third level is a park, the fourth level is a cargo ship, and the fifth level is an old street. Between level and level we must mount in a motorcycle and overcome some obstacles to reach the next level.

Mutant monsters have kidnapped my four friends and I must go through all Santander in their search, and then exterminate the chief of the mutants. Very simple. Each level has a riddle or secret to discover to be able to overcome, whether keys, buttons or anything else that is hidden. All scenarios are based on locations in the city of Santander (Spain).
