Play OverviewPlay Overview

Riverbond (2019) is a frantic adventure in a blocky world. With four people on one system, you take on an adventure to defeat evil and free the charming citizens. It's a brawling game with an emphasis on fun and over-the-top cartoon combat.

Part of the novelty is how it looks like Minecraft but plays like an arcade fighting game. The action is fast and responsive with different weapons wreaking havoc on everything from enemies to the environment like in Lego games. Topple massive towers with a swoosh of your sword, get trigger-happy on mobs of enemies, and explode environments into colourful bursts of pixel goodness.

There are an array of characters from allies to enemies. And you can choose from over 50 weapons to suit your play style and triumph over evil.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Riverbond 4 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 6 months ago.
