Hapless knight seeks fearless princess in one-touch platform puzzler Epic Eric

London, UK. 4 June 2015 – The plight of the knight goes full flight as independent game developer 232 Studios today launched physics-based platform puzzler Epic Eric on Google Play. Designed and developed solely by indie developer Neil Glenister, players assume the role of either Eric the Knight or – in a twist on the traditional fairytale genre – Princess Erica. Players must swing, flip and bounce their way to victory across 60 distinct levels.

Epic Eric’s story features Eric as the luckless knight who’s continuously captured by his rival – the outcasted Black Knight. Jealous of Eric’s ‘epicness,’ and his relationship with the ravishing Princess Erica, the Black Knight challenges players across a series of increasingly difficult levels and worlds in order to determine the one true master of the sword. Players must collect over 100 stars and master a wide range of items and mechanisms scattered throughout each of the game’s 4 unique worlds.

Epic Eric also features a wide variety quirky achievement challenges, such as the Top Gun ‘Maverick’ award for flying over Eric’s tower of captivity whilst upside-down, and the ‘Show Off’ award for surviving a fall.
