Slain by Wolf Brew Games PS4 and PS Vita.

In Slain, players control Bathoryn, a lycanthropic hero in a Gothic world, seeking to liberate seven great towers from 7 deadly overlords. Bathoryn must battle his way through a doomed land packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending and descending each tower, defeating puzzles, traps and monsters alike. Reminiscent of classics like Altered Beast, Shadow of The Beast, and Ghosts ‘n Goblins, the difficulty of the combat and platforming can best be described as brutal. Save points help but they’re rare. So it’s down to you and your ability with a sword.

Here’s a gameplay trailer for a better look at the game.
