"My time with Ascendant has been greatly enjoyed. From the juggling antics enjoyable boss encounters, Ascendant provides a fun and self refreshing game that is extremely addictive. Its easy to pick up but difficult to master controls will hook you in to venture on through tough times and the many deaths that you suffer; you’ll die a lot, but will get that little bit further each time. There are a ton of collectibles too, offering a lot of replay value to those who master each level.
With so many positives it’s a shame the game falls short with its narrative. Additionally, the slightly characterless designs of the demigods is a little disappointing, but overall these are minor qualms with what is a very enjoyable game."
