Ancient Axes: Heroes on Paper


Coming out for OUYA, Windows, Mac, and Linux systems in 2014

Ancient Axes: Heroes on Paper is an action-packed puzzler for solo players and an action-stuffed thrill ride for 2-4 players. Planet Io hopes to bring back the successful couch and arcade co-op from the lost 1980’s legends like Gauntlet and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and at the same time inject some unique paper-style art influenced from the likes of the Paper Mario series.

The first concept of Ancient Axes was created in 2008 by a collaboration of game design students from the University of Baltimore and the Image Campus of Argentina. The unique single player idea has been refined and the entire game expanded to include multiplayer.

In AA: HoP, choose your character (warrior, knight, archer, or wizard), slay monsters, collect points, grab power-ups, and unlock secrets. Control two heroes at once for mind-bending single player or play with friends for action-packed, classic Gauntlet-style multiplayer.
