In Magic and Legend: Time Knights, players will follow the tale of the titular heroes as they travel through time to fight off malevolent invaders.

Both Magic and Legend feature their own unique set of abilities, letting players experiment with the right tactics and get a feel of the playstyle that suits them best. Of course, in case they can’t make up their minds (because both are equally fun to use), they can always switch between the two characters at any time on the fly.

The game features 5 large sprawling levels over the time periods:

  • Level 1: The Journey Begins… (Present Day)
  • Level 2: Medieval Times
  • Level 3: Sengoku Period
  • Level 4: Ancient Rome
  • Level 5: The Crown Jewel Heist (60’s London)

For each level Magic and Legend have their own costumes and weapons and just for fun there are also 4 bonus levels.

Lastly, to ensure the world is safe, the boys go up against a final boss who is hell bent on taking out Magic & Legend so they can take the planet for themselves.

is there a full rom version to

Purchase? Looks great btw

there will be yes.  Currently I am letting the Physical version go through its sales process.  Then I will put up the digital rom for sale.

I will also compile the full version across the different platforms too.

thanks for your kind works and interest!

¿final version?

At least for now… I will probably do a bug fix release at some point but will likely port this over to GB Studio 3 to continue progress.

Scratch that - inspiration has started up again :)
