16-bit RPG 'Destiny Emerald' Now Available for the iPad

Destiny Emerald

The book Swiss Family Robinson ins't the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about role-playing games, but the famous shipwrecked family is exactly what inspired the new game Destiny Emerald. The new RPG from Watermark is all about working together as a family. The story follows the Darkslays, a family of 16-bit warriors who must find the Five Shards of the Destiny Emerald.

In the game players must crawl a massive dungeon filled with monsters and other hazards, while solving puzzles and collecting a variety of weapons and gadgets to help them complete their journey. Players can play as four different family members, each with their own unique class, attacks and abilities. The look of the game is inspired by classic RPGs such as Legend of Zelda, but the story is all about a family who stays together because they slay together. Even Grandpa and Grandma get in on the action as supporting characters.

Destiny Emerald is available now on the App Store for $2.99. It supports all iPad models running iOS 6.0 or later.

Here is a look at the Darkslay family:
