Niche Games Spotlight – Armortale


Armortale is an action platformer with a unique swapping mechanic to solve puzzles and fight enemies.

In Armortale, baby demon foxes are terrorizing the kingdom and it’s up to us to stop them! Along with a “wise witch”, players will use different armors.

The skillful use of these armors is crucial, one allows you to throw bombs to clear terrain, another makes you immune to spikes. It’s similar to how you could switch weapons on the fly in later Mega Man games but now it’s a core mechanic instead of a quality of life feature.

You can check out the trailer for the game below.

Armortale is an up-tempo action platformer set in a magical fantasy world. Embark on an adventure to find the 4 magic armor sets and stop 2 prison-escaped demon baby foxes from terrorizing the kingdom.

Armortale is available now on Windows PC (via Steam).
