About the game
The Bounty is a retro-inspired competitive RPG, with an East meets West approach, deviously combined with an arcade high score sensibility. An experience that will challenge your wits as you push to survive, uncover a multitude of secrets, and earn the high score.
Interact with players around the world- share your scores, and find out who is the best in official high score and specialized competitions.
The Bounty is unapologetically old school. No level grinding. No place to hide. Death is permanent. Even saving your game subtracts from your score. Your victory is in your own hands. Develop your own strategies, power your character the way you want to, and eventually conquer the game... if you can.
Remember- there is a secret, a trap, or a monster at every turn. Some of the levels, creatures and treasures may not stay the same from play to play.
