Train2Game News Little Medusa gets retro release

Out now on the 16-bit platforms Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis, and on the classic Nintendo Entertainment System, Little Medusa is an action puzzler set in ancient Greece and starred by a polymorphed deity.

In Little Medusa you will have to take back Mount Olympus from the Titans, who have escaped their eternal prisons and transformed Artemiza, a young goddess, into a gorgon. Now she must petrify enemies, solve puzzles, and dodge traps in her battle to save the realms of the gods.

“Gorgon’s can be cute too”, says Zack Manko, Lead Cat at Mega Cat Studios. “A puzzle platformer to feed the Gorgon in all of us had to be created and given a 16 bit life. We did that.”

Little Medusa features truly authentic retro puzzle action with charming pixel-art visuals. All three platforms have their own soundtrack and art, and there’s also a hidden entire world on each version.
