A retro fantasy speedrunning adventure

Developed in Piteå, Sweden

Concept
Rush to Adventure is a retro fantasy speedrunning adventure. Inspired by classic NES titles like Zelda and Castlevania. You awaken on the shore of a cursed island. Your only way off the island is to fight through the monsters and lift the curse.

Exploration and action
The game is divided into two parts. You explore the non-linear island in a top-down view. This is where you talk to islanders, visit shops etc. The levels are played as a side-scrolling platformer. You must reach the end or fight a boss to unlock more parts of the island.

Adventure and speedrunning
Slay monsters to gain xp and level up. Collect coins to buy items and weapons. At the end of each level you are scored and receive a rank. Play for the adventure or replay levels for better times and higher scores, to improve your rank.
