In the game, the Hunter is controlled by the player. The hunter is also a master archer, who must find a way to lift the curse on an island. To shoot talismans scattered throughout the world, she must use her bows and arrows that will also fill Hunter’s dash meter and allow her to swiftly navigate the game’s world. An eagle companion accompanies her, which can carry the player while flying. The eagle loses altitude while carrying the Hunter, though it can gain altitude through flapping its wings.
This game does not feature a mini-map, unlike various other open-world games. “Spirit Vision” has to be used by the players to find locations of interest. Players can collect crystals which can be used to upgrade the eagle’s abilities, by exploring the game’s world. she is hunted by cursed spirits which attempt to separate her from her eagle throughout her journey. Being alerted through stealth should completely be avoided by the players. The light needs to be returned by the players to the obelisks scattered in the game’s world, which weakens the curse spirits, that players in defeating them. Players will lose the crystals they have collected when they are defeated by the cursed spirits.

The Mimic System means a range of functions that can be performed by your banana loving friends, with monkey management becoming key to surviving the island’s tasks.

Whatever it is that you are seeking could be in one of the many labyrinths scattered around the island. Although, getting your hands on the loot is extremely difficult as would-be raiders are prepared for their treasure hunting crusade.
5. Slash Quest
Slash Quest, a silly new adventure game from Green Pillow, available on the Apple Arcade, Mother Gaia Studios and Noodlecake, to its growing catalogue of over 130 games. Slash Quest thrusts you into the role of Shep, an unlikely knight, who comes across the Queen’s lost — and quite chatty — sword, Swordie.
The game has over 12 exciting levels — including boss fights, side quests and challenges — puzzles can be solved, chopping up enemies and unlocking the treasure. The controls take some of your time to get used to, and to lean into the “bumbling” aspect of Shep’s character, but they can be customised as per your needs in the Settings.
