Slovak hero

Juro Janosik is a legendary Slovak hero. He was a highlander robber and his real story is heavily blurred by dozens of legends, myths and beliefs. He is also known as Slovakian Robin Hood. He robbed nobles and gave the loot to the poor. In the game you will play in the role of this Slovak hero – Juro Janosik.

Levels

You start on the Slovak mini-country scene which serves mainly as a level selection scene. There are 10 levels in the game and every level is represented as a real Slovak castle. Some of them can be locked until you successfully complete the previous one.

Main goal in every level is to gain certain amount of gold for villagers and of course, most of the gold is in the castle. So you will need to solve some puzzles, fight some pandurs and get to the castle to find some gold for villagers.

Combat system

In the game, Juro is a really good robber – he will never kill anybody. He just stun them, so they stay unconscious for some time. So if you have a rope in inventory, you can tie them up and they will not be able to move after they’ll become conscious again .

Character and RPG features

During whole game player will always have the same weapons – axe and pistol.
Player character lose his stamina during attack or while sprinting. If player has a low stamina, he can’t sprint and his attacks gives lower damage. Player gains one experience point after completing level and he can use this point to upgrade some of the character’s skills (like stamina, health, damage, speed).
