In l'Abbaye des Morts, you play the monk Jean Raymond who, fleeing from crusaders, finds shelter in an old church, not knowing that inside he'll encounter much more terrible dangers than some simple knights in armor.
On paper, the gameplay is very simple, since you'll just have to use the direction buttons to move your character one way or the other and to crouch, and another button to jump. That said, the game, honoring its visual style, is as difficult as the classics that came before it.
l'Abbaye des Morts is full of all kinds of dangers: bats, skeletons armed with bows and arrows, demons, ghosts, giant spiders, dragons ... even a drop of water could kill you.
Luckily, players will also find hearts (which give you more lives) scattered throughout the abbey as well as other important objects that you'll have to pick up in order to advance.
l'Abbaye de Morts is an outstanding 2D platformer that, like most Locomalito titles, offers a traditional high-quality playing experience.
