Armed With Wings 3 is a platform action adventure puzzle and an intense hand/sword fighting game for teens where you play the role of Leo, a young hero on his epic quest to destroy the evil forces that threaten to wipe out his village. He does this with the help of his trusted Eagle friend. Together, they have to solve perplexing puzzles and battle their way through various dreamlike worlds, taking out the bad guys and overcoming bosses in order to save their beloved village. This third installment of the super-stylish “Armed With Wings” game series is quite simply awesome! It’s an otherworldly adventure that will take you to the extremes of your fighting and thinking capabilities! The game delivers endless hours of high quality entertainment and fast-paced fun. Enjoy!
This latest version looks and sounds the same as the previous two games, apart from the subtle introduction of color to differentiate between worlds. It is however, easier to play (in terms of the controls) so there’s no excuse for not causing some serious damage! OK, you have two options: Story Mode or Survival Mode. In Story Mode, you have to make it to the shining portal at the end of each level, in order to progress.
You move and interact with your Eagle friend constantly. Working as a team, you both navigate your way through a variety of surreal and menacing landscapes, collecting health orbs, solving puzzles, finding treasures and taking out countless enemy assassins along the way. You’ll instantly be blown away by the super-slick silhouette graphics, beautiful backgrounds and dreamy ambient soundtrack here. There’s an in-game tutorial to guide you. Survival Mode, on the other hand, is a fearsome fight to the finish (you versus them – all of them!) where you battle against endless waves of enemies and bosses. You get to show the world what you’ve got!
In Story Mode, there are a number of dark and mysterious worlds to be crossed. They start out quite easy but then subtly get more and more difficult, as you progress. The further you get, the more brain-teasing puzzles you have to solve using your shrewd Eagle partner. This Eagle truly is your best friend. His ability to scout ahead and check out what’s in store for you is priceless! You need him to access tiny passages and to find and grab keys etc. Controlling the two characters becomes second nature in no time. In order to access upgrades (in both abilities and weaponry), you need to interact with two other characters – Leo’s Mother and the Blacksmith. This fascinating game is a wonderful journey of exploration and discovery; you need to play it to appreciate it! OK, ready for some razor-sharp sword fighting, fast-paced fist punching and spectacular wall jumping, all set amongst stunning scenery? Well, let’s get moving! Press SPACEBAR to begin!
How To Play: Follow the in-game tutorial in Story Mode before you start as seeing controls and explanations one by one helps learning them much faster. You have two characters to control in this game. As the Leo character, use the following arrow keys on your computer keyboard to move and jump: (UP), (DOWN), (LEFT), (RIGHT). Use these letter keys to perform actions: (W), (A), (S), (D). The (A) key is for fighting with your fists and the (S) key is for fighting with your sword. Use the (D) key to activate your special ability. Press SPACEBAR to talk (in Story Mode).
In order to switch between the boy Leo and the Eagle character, press (W). As the Eagle character, use the same arrow keys to navigate his flight: (UP), (DOWN), (LEFT), (RIGHT). The (A) key lets the Eagle grab important items such as keys and handles. Use the (S) key to hold the Eagle in position, while Leo performs other actions. The (W) key calls the bird back after completing a task. In both Survival and Story Mode, you can see your Health and Score in the top left corner of the game screen. You can see your enemy’s (small) health bars located above their heads. Go Leo!
