The Last Faith is a platform action game of the metroidvania type. The game was developed by the independent studio Kumi Souls Games and its creation was possible thanks to the successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.
The Last Faith takes us on a journey to a gloomy fantasy land, to be precise, to the Gothic city of Mythringal, the capital of a powerful kingdom. The metropolis was first shaken by a disastrous civil war; then it fell victim to the plague that brought it to the brink of collapse. The religious cult that has ruled here has left the inhabitants of the city to their fate, although not everything seems to have been lost yet. This is because Eric, who suffers from amnesia, takes matters into his own hands and, in search of answers to questions about an ancient prophecy, gets involved in a much larger-scale intrigue. In this way, the protagonist gradually discovers the truth about the corruption that is destroying this world.
The Last Faith is a side-scroller. During the game, we walk through vast and varied locations, among which we find powerful citadels, palaces and temples, or thrilling underworld. All these places make up a large map that forms a kind of extensive labyrinth and although we can travel around them freely, we do not access many areas until we have acquired certain equipment or skills. The exploration is varied by environmental puzzles and encounters with monsters of all kinds - from walking, through flying to crawling. Among the enemies we will find both smaller opponents, whose defeat usually does not require any fancy tactics, and much more powerful bosses impressive not only in size but also in resistance and attack strength.
Fighting adversaries is an important part of the gameplay. During the clashes, we must not only show speed and reflexes (to make timely dodges and counter-attacks), but also make use of Eric's rich arsenal and abilities. The protagonist uses cold weapons and firearms (the latter are used primarily to break the defensive attitude of enemies), as well as offensive magic. In addition, the combat potential of a weapons can be increased by buffing them with ancient elemental powers (such as Diamond Dust which can freeze the opponent briefly).
The Last Faith has dark graphics made in pixel art technique. The graphics presents a high quality; both Gothic-style location designs and a variety of nightmare opponents may appeal.
