Risky Woods

Original (7/9): Risky Woods, a game that originally released over three decades ago, is now making a comeback on Switch.

The title was originally made by Dinamic Software and Zeus Software. Also an interesting mention, EA was the original publisher. QUByte Interactive will now be handling the Switch version as part of its classics line for the console.

If you haven’t heard of the original game it’s a side-scrolling platformer with a fantasy theme. We have the official eShop description below.

Fortunately, you – the young warrior Rohan – have arrived to deliver justice to the evil hordes. With weapons in hand you must enter the risky woods and free the monks from their petrified captivity. Only when you’ve set the monks free and sent Draxos back to hell will wisdom be restored for good.

Key Features

– 12 Levels, 8 landscapes and 150 screens.
– 11 professionally composed musical scores.
– Over 20 different devious enemies to destroy.
– Power ups with axes, fireballs, chains and more!

Risky Woods will launch for Switch on July 13, 2023. Pricing is set at $9.99. We’ll add in a trailer here once it’s live from QUByte.

Update (7/10): An official trailer now now been released. Get a look at the video below.
