Description

Skjoldur Story is a lighthearted but challenging zelda-lite adventure game where you explore a vast and whimsical world with nothing but a shield.

A Magical Shield
Your only weapon is your shield, or Skjoldur, that blocks and steals enemy abilities for your own use. Use this to your advantage in combat as well as puzzle-solving.

A Non-Linear World
Skjoldur Story has a strong emphasis on non-linearity. Play at your own pace and wander a handcrafted overworld in whichever direction you choose. Dungeons you find can be opened in any order using power stones that are scattered across the overworld. The only exception is the final tower, which remains locked until everything else is completed.

Discover Hidden Areas
Stumble across secret rooms with hidden treasure or minigame-like areas that further you along your journey in a fun rhythm-breaking way.  Purchase items at various shops with any loot you find to increase your chances of success.
