Review: Huge fan of roguelikes. But this one bored me to tears.
This game is very simple, which is good. It isn’t challenging at all, which should be the hallmark of a good roguelike. However, it also lacks depth. It’s a game about grinding that goes nowhere. Each generation sets up the future success of the next generation – but to what end? If I wanted pointless grinding I’d continue my life as a software developer. It’s pretty fun to play, but nothing about my brief playthrough makes me want to come back and continue playing.
The combat is extremely tedious – actions that should take less than half a second (or be instant) like dice rolls end up taking longer.
I guess it comes down to this:
It’s not a terrible game, but for the price I would have expected much more. Would not recommend you spend your money on this, there are much better roguelikes/lites available. EG: FTL, binding of isaac, dungeon of endless
