Game description

“Bard's Gold is a platformer that’s suited for any gamer or just fans of the genre. It’s light in gameplay mechanics but it’s sufficiently packed with other stuff that keeps it interesting all the way through.” - 4.0/5.0 – Softpedia

“With tough gameplay, charming pixel art visuals and a very catchy soundtrack, Bard’s Gold is a thoroughly enjoyable retro platforming romp that will punish you for your mistakes, but also allow you to learn from them.” - ABG

“It also doesn't hurt that Bard's Gold controls extremely well too, with pixel-perfect leaps and strikes all made possible by the game's ultra-responsive feedback.” - Gamewatcher


Bard's Gold is a challenging platformer that let's you explore eerie worlds in a quest for a Goblin that stole your gold. Help the Bard to overcome the dungeon’s many dangerous perils and use your new-found treasures to improve your character and to buy new weapons and gear!

This game takes inspiration from early 90's platforming classics such as Rainbow Island, Rick Dangerous and Alex Kidd, which at the time were popular on the Amiga and consoles. Bard's Gold is slower paced than most current day platformers, but is extemely challenging. Players need to avoid enemies, traps and projectiles in order to progress. Being hit by any of them means instant death. Difficult puzzles and towering bosses will have to be overcome to reach the filthy goblin that stole the family treasure.


Key Features:

  • Old school platforming experience - No tutorials or explanations how things should be done. Everything including the basic game mechanics must be figured out by yourself as you go.

  • Rogue-lite - Different layouts for each level is randomly chosen every playthrough. While getting the chance to memorize levels and get better at them, the "random level" system will keep your interest. With the gems you collect you will be able to upgrade your character on the Game Over screen. These upgrades are permanent and will help you on future playthroughs.

  • Secrets - ??????

  • Extremely challenging, yet rewarding gameplay

While I was adventuring, I got my saddle containing the legendary Bard's Gold stolen by a filthy goblin. It has been my Family Treasure for generations... I had to get it back at all costs! Giving chase to the burglar, I went through a portal that sent me to this strange world... I must escape and return the Bard's Gold to where it belongs!

A Fantastic Dungeon Crawler

Bard's gold is a 2D platformer with RPG elements when you start the game you get the option to play on Normal difficulty or Retro Which is hard that used to be normal in old school lingo, your HUD will display your weapon , your life count , number of gems you have bonuses,collectibles and keys to open chests , you start with throwing daggers as first weapon and it's a short range weapon, you can kill enemies and destroy vases with . the game is split into levels and different dungeons and you have a limited time to finish each level find all hidden collectibles , eliminate all enemies ,avoid traps and move on to the next area, much like any dungeon crawler, i'm looking at you the Binding of Isaac . if you touch an enemy you die instantly and lose a life point, and you lose everything you're carrying and any buffs to stats you may have picked up, it's pretty unforgiving even on normal difficulty, you can always buy things from a shop to help protect your things like a shield for example, using the gems as currency , it's pretty fun to try and find hidden doors and objects and loot whatever inside them. the graphics are what you'd expect from a 2D platformer, they're nice and very dungeon like , the soundtrack is very soothing and sets the right mood. requires alot of patience but you wont stop playing.
