This is a top down retro shooter. Each level is randomly generated, and you must clear every bad guy in the room before progressing. If you die, you start the level again on a new completely random map. I normally would find it annoying starting all over again, but this mechanic stops you from just running trial and error to eventually get through.

You get a pretty standard set of guns, twin pistols, shotgun etc, all of which can be upgraded.

I ran into no bugs and the games run very well on new operating systems.

The price is right and the game play is good. If you like the horror genre, and love the arcade games from the past, then you will get plenty of enjoyment out of Larva Mortus

Larva Mortus adds a sinister horror environment to the classic top-down arcade experience and with its surprisingly fun gameplay and ominous storytelling, it was really entertaining!

Demonic rituals and classic horror creatures like werewolves, vampires and zombies fill up every corner of this game and are complimented by perfectly eerie, evil-sounding music and ambient whispers and noises that invade the players head. All of these aspects make up the spooky atmosphere Larva Mortus boasts, and the story, conveyed in an awesome graphic novel-type style, lives up to the games overall horrific demeanor and is actually very interesting.

As you progress through the game, you'll discover new weapons at a pretty fast pace and you will have the opportunity to personalize your character a bit with upgrade points gained by leveling up. There are also A LOT of side missions to tackle other than the main story line which can really help you catch up if you're stuck on one of the main quests. One of the best things about the gameplay though is the fact that the levels are randomly generated. What that means is that if you do happen to die near the end of a level, you do have to play through it again, but the level will be re-designed with different rooms and monster spawns. This keeps the game from getting tedious on some of the more difficult parts.

I did encounter a bug that would cause monsters to occasionally not spawn where they should. It doesn't affect the gameplay too much though, it just means that you have to run out of the room and back in to reset the spawns. I also really would have liked to see some multiplayer in Larva Mortus. Hopefully the developers will eventually get around to adding it. I think that would be a blast!

Needless to say, the gameplay itself is smooth and enjoyable but there's nothing amazing about it alone. It's the combination of the gameplay and the demonic-horror style that really makes the game shine as a whole.

In conclusion, I absolutely recommend Larva Mortus, especially if you're a horror fanatic like me. Thanks for reading! :)

General
Larva Mortus is a typical example of a isometric budget shooter with semi-cartoonish graphics. The interesting in it is the extremly low price due the constant 90%-off price label, which puts it into the bellow 50 cents category. And for that it offers quite a few good things.

Gameplay
We are controlling a monster hunter looking guy from a birds perspective, which gives us a quite good overview trough combat. Our hero is easy to work with, which is definitely welcomed as combat always happens in cramped rooms. The mechanics is exactly this - you basically go from room to room and clean them out from monsters. Levels are generated randomly so you never know into what you go, but as long the level design regardless of the environment serves the same purprose, it doesn't really requires you some change in tactics or would surprise you in any way. The enemies vary from basic undead, flying bats to spiders and poison spitting fat zombies. Except the boss level templars, they don't really represent any serious force and usually are trying to make up for the lack of their power with rather high numbers. Very importantly - try not leave the room until is not cleared out entirely, cause the room will reset even if only one enemy remains and you need fight the horde once again. Exceptions might be missions where you need to rescue a certain number of civilians, blasting trough the rooms and just focusing on the rescue can save some time and nerves.
Sometimes you need to find a key in order to continue, but it means cleaning a few more rooms into a other direction, until you eventually find what you searched for. Except the enemies the room also contain "furniture" like coffins and crates, which I recommend to destroy, cause you might get stuck in them in middle of combat and enemies can corner you, plus there is a chance that they might drop ammo or powerups. (see bellow) Unfortunately the game gets eventually a bit dull after some hours spent in it and you usually keep going only to raise your level and find some new item. It simply lacks the depth, but I think it's forgiveable by such a budget title.

Story
While it might sound weird, it actually features a working story. It's your typical "find missing ancient artefacts and beat some evil monsters trying to take over the world" B (or C?) class movie type of story, already the fact that there is actually one and with animations/voicing included, is quite surprising (and very welcomed) which might raise it slightly above other games of this category. What I noticed the doing random levels while being in middle of the story can cause some bugs. Is highly recommended complete it first.

Leveling, weapons, artefacts, powerups
Leveling - And yet another surprise for your cents, the game has actually a RPG system. Each level you get a point which you might use for raising you stats. Personally I found some more useful as others. I highly recommend to put many points as possible into Endurance and Regeneration, (6+ recommended) First raises your HP and the other speeds up healing which might be crucial on more difficult levels. I also recommend to raise your walking speed and luck to get more drops from destroyed enemies of crates. Other abilities doesn't have such influence and are okay with 2-3 points.
Weapons - plenty of them and they are rather balanced. Is always the best to switch whatever has the most ammo in it. Of course certain weapons are better into certain situations, like the machinegun is best against weak huge groups, while the shotgun is better against individual strong enemies. Don't worry, as you play, would fill eventually figure out all of them.
Artefacts - pretty much the alpha and omega of this game. While many of them adds only points to your score, other give you huge advantages, which will change your game dramatically. I highly recommend to get the backpack, extended clips and enchanted scroll so fast as is possible. Backpack raises the carried ammo by a huge ammount, extended clips raise the magazine to 120 by one of the most used weapons and the scroll doubles the time duration of all powerups.Artefacts can be found randomly in dungeon, but the game doesn't excludes the already found ones. so it depends on pure luck. But assuming in certain levels you can find 3 at once, you will eventually get 100%. On sidenote, you most succefully complete the level to keep the artefact. If you die, it gets lost. Can be quite the bummer.
Powerups - unlike artefacts, they are only temporary. However they can change the tide of the battle dramatically, especially if you have a good luck (more powerups) and the scroll, which doubles the duration. Unlimited ammo with the machinegun and double damage can literally make you to a walking terminator.

Graphics
One of the biggest cons of the game is the low resolution. Is quite noticable that is a ported mobile game. While the graphics aren't bad and objects stay sharp even on my full HD screen, the devs could have added a option of standard desktop resolutions even if it would be achieved with simple stretching.

Music and sounds
Modern/organ combo which gives away a creepy cemetery feeling. Few and repetitive, but suits the game rather well. I cannot say anything else as I really liked it. If there would be more tracks, I would ask the devs for a OST. Really.

Achievements
Basically all of the achievements are connected to finding the artefacts. As I mentioned, there is a high chance that you find the pieces same over and over, but you will eventually find all of them, even if means a bit of grinding. One of the easiest games on Steam to get a 100%.

Conclusion
Do I recommend this game? Definitely yes, if you find that 90%-off price tag on it. While this game will not cause a panic in the game stores, it offers quite a fun for a few cents.
My rating: 6/10

Would be a really fun game if it didn't constantly prevent you from completing levels. When you finish whatever the objective is and no exits spawn, it's really annoying.

First time I was OK with it. Thought it was just a bug.

Second time I was annoyed.

Third time I uninstalled the game. What a waste of money.

Brough the game as I had a 90% off coupon, worth the discount but not sure if it would be full price. Saying that so far i have enjoyed it and would reccommend if you want a fun game for 30-45minutes at a time that doesnt realy require any thought.

This game is really underrated. It's a cool top down action shooter with some RPG elements. It tells an interesting story that's obviously inspired by classic horror stories à la H. P. Lovecraft. Except for some of the sprites, the graphics are very nice and athmospheric and there are various cool comic-style cutscenes. The only downside to the game is that there are some minor bugs that are fortunately not game breaking. And you have to make sure to configure your graphics-card to not mess up the game's aspect ratio on widescreen monitors. If you can pick it up for cheap it's definitely worth a try.

This game lacks any remarkable quality that justifies buying it, even on a sale. It's basically a twin stick shooter (without controller support) where the player scuffles through randomized (but persistently unstimulating) dungeons, fending off flocks of uninspired enemies to tediously grind through a few repetitive mission objectives, all tied together by the most perfunctory of stories.
The game's design and visuals transpire blandness. Enemy variety consists of the trite assortment of bats, spiders, skeletons, zombies, werewolves and respective supersized variants. Moreover the monsters are afflicted by extremely constrained behaviour types, limited to either rushing the player, casually flying around or throwing the odd missile. This cognitive impairment makes the enemies prone to getting stuck behind objects and frequently kamikaze into the environmental traps, and the only challenge comes from the occasional overwhelming numbers of enemies.
Due merits for the low hardware requirements, which allow to run it in a modest 5 year old computer, but when the game looks over 10 years old that's hardly a redeeming feature.

This is an inexpensive game that nevertheless feels too cheaply made for its price, and I can't find any reason to recommend playing it even if it finds its way into your steam account after a bundle sale.

This game is dumb.
And it revels in its own stupidity. If anything they didn't go far enough really.

You are a monster hunter of the Van Helsing variety called to investigate some strange going-ons. You eventually meet a man who claims to be cursed against his own will and only by collecting the various artifacts of doom can you save the world. Halfway through this you are hit with a plot twist from one of your would be targets that actually collecting the pieces is a bad idea and your employer is out to get you! ...he then gives you the piece anyway because hell if I know.
Our character points out that since he started collecting the pieces he has suffered nightmares and ill health and nothing more so then I began to wonder if this is subtle meta storytelling like Hotline Miami where the game is telling you that all the violence can end if you stop playng the game.

So I did.

Hopefully he has been able to sleep better now.

But a bad story doesn't make a game dumb! Well I mean it does but it can be overlooked if the gameplay is good and here the gameplay is...Not bad but not good either. This game was made back before twin stick shooters had revived popularity so it is WASD to move and mouse to aim. The game would have lended itself brilliantly to being a twin stick shooter but we can look past that...Except we can't!

Why? The room layouts and the secrets and traps within are extremely reminiscent of the Binding of Issac. I played Larva Mortus first but looking at the two games side by side the similarities are noticable. Larva however is not a rogue-like and even though the gameplay is similar in a lot of areas they are very different products so don't buy Larva Mortus and expect it to play like Binding of Issac because Larva is not that punishingly hard infact it isn't hard at all but it is also not as rewarding as a result, unlike a good run in Binding of Issac.

This game hasn't really aged well, the graphics are good but a little wonky in places, the music is okay but a little off in places, the sound effects are sufficent but a little mismatched in places, I don't know what it is but everything in Larva Mortus is one step to the left of mediocre but it works out because otherwise the game would be completely forgettable anyway but as it stands it is akin to '5 nights at freddies' whereby it is an experience as much as it is a 'game'.

Could I recommend this game? I couldn't. If you are a Binding of Issac fan then don't buy this game and expect it to scratch that itch either. If you end up with this game in your possession however then be sure to give it a playthough, its really not offensive to the senses to play nor is it that bad of a game at all but it lacks pepper and I think it probabaly just hasn't aged well. A Larva Mortus today would be a twin stick shooter but as it stands this game is more of a relic of an age that has passed.

Larva Mortus. al principio entretiene y se te hace divertido matar a los distintos monstruos que aprecen, pero al pasar las horas el juego se torna repetitivo y aburrido. el sistema de drop de los items es totalmente aleatorio, asi que te puedes demorar desde 3 horas hasta 15 (como me tomo a mi) en conseguirlos todos y completar todos los logros. un juego que merece totalmente el dinero, solo si consigues un cupon de 90% de descuento y lo compras, en ese caso no superara los $0.50.

Un roguelike con toques de rol bastante apañado, no es una cosa del otro mundo pero divierte cuando tienes poco tiempo y te quieres echar una partida rápida.
Una pena que éste en inglés, aunque más o menos te puedes enterar de la historia.

A cheap little roguelike game to pass some whiles. Has defects of design as can see them quickly, but it fun for a few times; if you search quality or long campaigns, there are other options.

Uno de esos juego que no sé muy bien el motivo, pero que me gustan.

Desde que lo descubrí, quería probarlo.
Me gustó la temática y me pareció curioso el sistema de juego.
A mí, personalmente, no me ha defraudado.

Las misiones, los mapas y las bonificaciones son aleatorias, lo cual alargará un poco la vida del juego.
Aunque a la larga es de esperar que pueda resultar repetitivo.

Ideal para breves sesiones de acción y sin muchas complicaciones.
