The indie 2D developer ACE Team has given us interesting titles like Rock of Ages and Zeno Clash. Their latest game, Abyss Odyssey, follows in the same fashion as their previous titles in terms of unique style and interesting gameplay. This 2D adventure takes player deep down into the depths of a large crevice to confront an evil Warlock and his monstrous minions. But despite having a strong foundation and inspiration from games of other genres, some issues hold it back from becoming something truly special.
