Switzerland, Adliswil –May 26, 2022– Independent game developer Maets2011 has released a free adaption of the Nordic mythology, 戦乙女 ikusaotome now available on Steam.
戦乙女 ikusaotome is a game designed for fun, but you can adjust the challenge mode although you will need some practice for the advanced options. Fly with five Valkyries and choose between three game variants.
- In quest for spirit – Players can search for spirits, and try to find as many as possible. These spirits are partly or completely hidden by obstacles that can be removed with your sword or flying through them. If all spirits have been found the level is over.
- In competition – Players are given HP points. A character is KO if HP points equal 0; then this character will fly into the five-sided figure on the ground. The level is finished once either all opponents have passed the gate, or your HP is 0, or if you find and toggle three switchers and fly into the five-sided figure in the sky.

The direction of the flight is determined by the head movement
