Today, Mega Cat Studios gave the retro world a love letter and gave the NES, SNES, and the Sega Genesis the latest addition to their libraries, Little Medusa. This action puzzler takes inspiration from Kickle Cubicle and even has a unique world for each version of the game.
In Little Medusa you will have to take back Mount Olympus from the Titans, who have escaped their eternal prisons and transformed Artemiza, a young goddess, into a gorgon. Now she must petrify enemies, solve puzzles, and dodge traps in her battle to save the realms of the gods.
“Gorgon’s can be cute too”, says Zack Manko, Lead Cat at Mega Cat Studios. “A puzzle platformer to feed the Gorgon in all of us had to be created and given a 16 bit life. We did that.”
Little Medusa features truly authentic retro puzzle action with charming pixel-art visuals. All three platforms have their own soundtrack and art, and there’s also a hidden entire world on each version.
In Little Medusa, players move around in a top-down perspective, turning enemies into stone to throw at other enemies and obstacles. Little Medusa features hand-drawn art, 5 worlds of different puzzles, a secret world available by completing the puzzles fast enough, a story inspired by Greek mythology, 15 unlockable achievements, and a harder difficulty with permadeath.
Little Medusa is only available on physically cartridges for NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis. For more information or to learn how to purchase the game, check out the official website.
