So there's this lion prince Leonidas, and he has to protect his realm from lizard intruders by chucking his trusty spear at them. The premise might sound wacky, but this projectile puzzle game definitely deserves your attention. With its polished design and cool voice acting, strangely fitting pop culture references and epic spear-throwing action, Spanthera is certainly a pleasant surprise.

Just looking at this art, it's like I've been waiting all my life for the Peloponnesian War to be fought by animal warriors.

Let's see if it completes me...

As a lover of reptiles, the headshots are rather disturbing. Also the part where he professes for his lioness, there are two of them there! I guess the other one is a maidservant? Levels are a little mixed up in terms of difficulty.

The spears actually skip off the civilians! Hard heads, nice. Well, until the pointy bit hits them.

Even though part of the infantry guy's head is poking over the shield, it's not too sensitive. You can kind of poke at his feet with no real damage.

As they say, Ooh what a twist! But that final level is a doozy. It goes a little too fast, it's a huge test. Great narrative, though.

Nice game. I liked the last ~10 most difficult levels the best. Could've made the game even harder with more levels similar to these, particularly the last. I think the ease with which you can reset the levels means that you can make it more difficult and do more time-sensitive things, like where you have a moving boulder requiring a few accurate shots. It's a little annoying when you have levels where it's all accuracy - for instance to get three stars you have to shoot 6 guys exactly right - my OCD streak forces me to keep going for three stars after I keep missing the fifth or six guy and having to re-start 10 times. :) I also like that you can play through the whole game in about 15 mins. Even with more difficulty, I would try and keep a play through under 30 mins. Looking forward to Spanthera 2! -M

THIS IS PRIDE ROCK!!!!!

The voice acting in this is superb. Apart from having to replay some levels over just to get 3 stars, I really can't fault this game.

Shudog - he does say lionesses. If you think about the social structure of lion prides, there's no doubt he's talking to both of 'em.

Does he! Dang, that font really defeats me some times. I missed some animation because I was trying to read the bubbles. Well, that makes more sense.

Does anyone know how you defeat Slithrix? I can get past his force field, but I can't seem to hurt him with my spear.
