SOULSTOPIA Φ

Soulstopia Φ was released on September 28, 2021 by Tero Lunkka and Valkaela Software. The game was developed by NWArtworks. Soulstopia Φ is a souls-like action game.

Soulstopia Φ is a wave-based action arcade game where you set the ill-fated free using various attacks! A realm between heaven and hell, a stopping point for those at-odds with their demise. Suddenly pulled out of their lives, these restless spirits arrived in Soulstopia — to be set free by a lonesome maiden.

The game is almost a platformer with the hack and slash gameplay added. Soundtrack is excellent. The game offers some customization of the protagonist. The animation of the action is better than many I have reviewed. The standard PC keybind of WASD for movement drives the mouse action slashing. The game does change the camera angle so the player can see the action in different ways.

You can hold shift to do a knock-up/jump to do an aerial combo, which can be used to keep enemies off you while you focus the knocked-up target, but it’s completely unnecessary. There’s a counterattack that has relatively strict timing with pretty much zero payoff. You’re better off just spamming basic attacks.
