Qasir Al-Wasat Preview: Stealth-Action Adventure Game

Qasir al-Wasat is an interesting game that reminds me a lot of the original Legend Of Zelda games combined with the Prince of Persia series.

Qasir al-Wasat is an indie game developed by Aduge; you play as a demon that is summoned by a practitioner of magic to assassinate three targets. Lucky for you, the demon you play is invisible and can’t be seen by the guards and people around you. It should be easy to sneak through the palace to kill your targets, right? Well, the game adds a challenging aspect to the gameplay because you can be hurt by physical weapons since you are now in the realm of the living. If you get stabbed once, you die. To make the game even more challenging, you can get the blood of your victims on you which will make you stand out a lot more if your invisible body is covered in blood.

Qasir al-Wasat has some really interesting game concepts going on that will allow you to walk through pools of water to wash the blood off, but like most stealth games, performing these tasks creates a lot of noise which could attract more attention than you normally intend.

You can choose to run around quickly at the expense of making a bit of noise, or use your sneak button that reduces noise and slightly extends the camera so that you can get a clearer view of your surroundings. If you choose to do so, you can sneak up on unsuspecting targets to kill them either with your poison weapons, or go for the kill with your knife and risk getting covered in blood.

Visually, Qasir al-Wasat looks a lot like the classic Legend of Zelda games in terms of art style and design, as it has an isometric camera angle and cartoon sprite graphics. However, I don’t think the game looks retro, nor outdated, as the environments have a rich and quite detailed look to make the game look modern enough for today’s standards. Qasir al-Wasat takes place in 12th century Syria, so the environment reflects that with its tapestry, artwork, architecture and the clothing and weapon designs that the locals have.

Qasir al-Wasat isn’t all sneaking and combat, you will also be faced with challenging puzzles that you will need to solve to either unlock new areas in the game, or gain additional information for the story.
