Hack, Slash, Loot is a top down roguelike, this game will kill you over and over again to begin with. But be paintent, the game will reward you immensley with a lot of fun and characters. The more you die, the more characters and items drops you unlock.
The classic pixel art works really well in the top down view. The game play is very simple. You play with a mouse, and that's it. Turn based movement/actions makes this perfect for playing with a trackpad on a laptop too.
There is a nice "compare" feature here which makes picking and choosing what equipment to use easier than most games I've played previously. Plenty of different classes, I specifically enjoyed playing the Mage class, as it is super powerful towards endgame. I also found that the levels do not get progressivly harder, for instance, the first map you play is by far not the easiest, the difficulty will change on each playthrough. By completing certain other maps, you might also unlock "artifacts" which carry over to your other playthroughs as well.
Whilst the game is very RNG, I still ploughed plenty of hours into HSL and enjoyed every minute of it. Worth the £4,99 for sure.
