This game was reviewed using a code sent by the developer.
Just wanted to point out first that my game time that has been recorded on Steam is incorrect. I have spent at least eight hours playing this game.
Full Mojo Rampage is a rogue-like game that has similar traits to that of Binding of Isaac and another top-down game, Torchlight. The game was released in mid 2014. Although the game promotes co-op game play, the game's servers are pretty empty when trying to find a multiplayer game; with that being said, the game is still mega fun to play solo.
You take control of a Voodoo master; game play is a top down shooter where you have a normal attack, and two special attacks which are different for each class. At the start of the game you have a very basic class but you are able to unlock extra classes as you progress by using medals which you collect throughout the game and by finishing quests. The gameplay is very simple, but extremely addictive. As you explore each of the randomly generated levels you run into plenty of enemies to test your voodoo magic on. The game is also very loot orientated too, you start out with an initial two equitable item slots; most of the items which you equip will be voodoo dolls, these will increase your stats. You also have three inventory slots which can hold items such as extra ability items (such as boost speed for a certain amount of time etc).
The graphics are awesome. It has that childlike aesthetic but still very pleasing to look at. The cartoony stylized characters have some great models and animation on each of the characters/enemies are also very good.
At times in the game I struggled with the difficulty; but then I remembered that it is a rogue-like, and you are meant to die. Thankfully dying is not a massive issue in Major Rampage as you get to keep all of your money, experience and levels each time. This means you are able to build up your character to the point where it is very hard to die on the same bit over and over again. This also gives you the opportunity to fine tweak your character to exactly how you want to play it.
Each of the levels appears to be randomly generated, I can't remember seeing the same layout twice. In each of the levels there are also extra rooms around the map to go into which include shops to buy potions, or new voodoo dolls, hidden chests with coins and items in, or the feature which I really liked, the ability to combine two voodoo dolls into one, which then frees up another slot in your equipped-able items.
A full playthrough of all the quests on one single character took me about five hours from start to finish. You also get the chance to replay the levels all over again on Brutal difficulty which gives you the chance to increase your characters level even further. With the option of being able to unlock other characters the replay-ability factor in Full Mojo Rampage is very high.
I really recommend Full Mojo Rampage to any fan of the dungeon crawling, rogue-like genre as the single player is very well done and will keep you wanting to progress further and further each time. Sadly I found it very difficult to find a game online, but being able to play with friends on co-op mode maybe another redeeming factor here.
