Joakim Sandberg has had quite the journey developing Iconoclasts, his latest action adventure platformer. The game’s beautiful sprite-based art-style, story, boss fights and numerous stages took roughly seven years to make. Today, it’s finally available for PS4, PC and PlayStation Vita.
Iconoclasts focuses on Robin, a mechanic who must contend with the One Concern. As a freelancer of sorts, the authority doesn’t allow people like Robin to handle the precious ivory powering its machines. Robin’s do-good nature eventually attracts agents from the One Concern and she must escape before mounting a resistance against it.
Like the classic 2D platformers of yore, Iconoclasts features plenty of puzzles, running and gunning and platforming. Robin’s wrench is the most unique aspect of the experience as it allows you to speed through rails and parry projectiles. We’ll see how that plays out over the course of the experience.
You can purchase the game on Steam here – it’s currently in the “Top Sellers” category which should be good news for Sandberg. If you’ve already played it, then share your thoughts in the comments below.
