Ancient tombs filled with priceless treasures and deadly traps are a very common theme for video games, and for good reasons. After all, who wouldn’t love some mysteries? Now, Tombshaft is the latest game to take on this theme. This is a new arcade adventure/platforming game for mobile in which you will become an audacious explorer who traverses long-forgotten tombs in search of treasures.

In term of gameplay, this is a vertically-oriented platformer in which the screen will automatically scroll down, forcing you to constantly jump down with it to avoid getting crushed by the invisible wall above you. The developer has revealed a trailer for the game on its official Twiter page, and we’ve included it right below for you to have a look at it for yourself:

Basically, Tombshaft takes the core ideas of a typical platformer and slaps a treasure hunting twist on top of it. As you delve deeper and deeper into the ruins, you’ll encounter plenty of enemies to overcome as well as treasures to collect. Also, don’t forget to keep an eye out for magical genies, as they will grant you various bonuses.

The game is procedurally generated, so the layout of the tomb will change constantly and no two runs will be the same. As a result, you’ll have to stay on your toes at all times.

Overcome challenging enemies and bosses, collect treasures, and unlock various new characters

Additionally, if you want to feel a bit fancier, you can use the coins that you earn during the runs to unlock new playable characters. You might even get to meet some familiar faces.

Tombshaft is coming on August 22 on the App Store, with an Android version promised to follow at a later date.
