In Scythe of the Abyss you play as the angel of death who has been tasked to defeat the king of the land. You must run, jump and fight your way through the kingdom, defeating holy guards and reaping souls to regain strength.
I created this game because I wanted to take a little break from a main project of mine. It was supposed to be for Halloween so I gave it a pretty dark setting. All the sprites and tiles use the NES palette and limitations. The music and sounds should be fairly authentic to the NES.
