Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider Shows Off 8 Minutes of Gameplay Before Launch

The Arcade Crew released new gameplay from the JoyMasher-developed retro action game Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider, coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on January 12, 2023.

The gameplay shows off an extended look at some of the levels. Further, players can check out the retro action from the arsenal of weapons used to take down enemies.

Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider is an action platformer that features 16-bit graphics. Players assume the role of a cyborg ninja named Moonrider on a quest for revenge.

“From using traditional audio recording techniques from the 90’s to limited color palettes that’d feel right at home on a Sega Genesis, we wanted every aspect of Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider to faithfully pay homage to the formative era of games which ultimately inspired us to create our own,” said Danilo Dias, co-founder of JoyMasher and art director on Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider.

Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider features some of the more notable action game elements to keep the gameplay fast and challenging. Players can equip modifier chips to the character that allow some level of customization during fights.

You can watch the full gameplay below to satisfy your retro needs until the game launches later this week:
