For those of us old enough to have enjoyed the origional Gauntlet 1985 this is a pretty close clone! For those of you who aren't I need not pity you because now you can play Hammerwatch! Please note this game has no watches and no hammers!

Even though my brother kept insisting we were missing a plank, I essentially just assured him that 'it can't possibly be that important'.

So this is a game and it's a little like old gauntlet. It's not really that much reminiscent of it honestly, but it's still pretty close. Regardless it's quite enjoyable. I'd say that it can be a tad lacking if you're only playing singleplayer, but the four man online mplayer is pretty much where it will shine. I'd say that if you're considering getting it as a singleplayer experience you should make sure it's the type of game you want really.

I don't actually have many problems with the game in terms of it's mechanics and the like. It functions pretty well overall, but the 'combos' that some classes benefit from feel a bit awkward. At the same time you are kind of like 'man we need to keep this combo going!' so it can be a tad bit exciting. Still kinda awkward though. I don't really feel great about the lives system. I never really encountered it as being a problem per say, but when you can save and load it feels a little bit more of a second thought.

I like the abilities and the fact you can sorta 'spec' into things, but it feels like you are just going to spec broadly because of the exponential increase in cost. It's fine though I feel, just not amazing.

Overall the game is solid, but nothing to call game of the year. I'd still recommend it. Make sure you check a gameplay video out before buying!

Game control is awful. I don't want to play with keyboard. Steam contoller support if broken. I didn't succeeded to host multiplayer game - it's impossible to access all the options. Or may be possible by some contrintuitive way. So, very bad. Deleted. Don't recommend to buy this game. Don't support bad products.

Play with your friends and each can be a character. It's so fun and addicting that it was the only thing I played for months. It's a classic arcade RPG game, and you should really try it before going to Gauntlet, its "modern" version.

Tips: when with friends, do not go alone. If you are alone, take a quick look before rushing into some area. And DO NOT forget the planks! If you do... well, you'll just have to play it all over again to see the end of the game (seriously).

I can't quite put my finger on what it is about Hammerwatch that I love so much. The endless dungeon crawling should get tedious, but it doesn't. The lack of variety in enemies should get boring. The oh-so slow grind of upgrading powers should be faster. The huge difficulty spikes of boss battles should be frustrating.

But somehow, Hammerwatch manages to be more than the sum of it's parts, and provides an answer to all of the potential failings I've mentioned. The lack of variety in enemies is offset by the fact that there's an enormous number of them, which come at you in various combinations, and the interaction with the level design keeps each encounter fresh. While the character upgrades are very slowly drip-fed, that means that you have ample time as the player to master nuances of each before having more powers laden on. The boss difficulty spikes are offset by the fact that the game provides you plenty of extra lives, notably handing you a stack of five at the end of each boss fight, presumably to make up for the slew of them you lost during said fight.

It's that balance that only starts to shine through a few hours into the game. Hammerwatch rewards and demands careful, smart play. Wade into a battle without an exit strategy in mind and you'll quickly be swamped by 50 enemies. Get surrounded, and you're toast. But go in knowing that you've cleared the hallway behind you so you can retreat that way, kiting the enemies into a more manageable grouping, and that you can trigger a combo with one power and use a combination heal/AoE with the other. and you'll stroll through the encounter.

The only possible downside is that once you've got your build mastered and your careful approach strategy down, the challenge can slacken off (with the exception of the punishing boss battles). Though to be fair, there are harder difficulty levels that I've not yet explored that may solve that issue.

I'll also note that I haven't even tried the co-op, which I expect will change up the feel of the game dramatically.

Excellent game! Has that old school rpg look while incorporating smooth and responsive modern day controls. I'm sure this is a good game to play solo. Though I'd highly recommend playing it with a friend. As any shared experience is always the more fun one. And with this game dropped down to £1.74 on winter/summer sales. There really is no reason not to treat a friend to this game (Though you're really treating yourself to a more enjoyable experience).

Hammerwatch currently has six classes with ranged and/or close quarters attacks. With each having a magic spell or ability and other ones unlocking later in the game. Multiple upgrades including health, mana, armour, damage, and many more. Seven dungeons which include multiple layers and have seven challenging bosses to go with each. This game has all of the tell-tale qualities of classic dungeon crawler with a few secrets & Easter eggs thrown in there to.

Hammerwatch
2D Dungeon Crawl Action RPG
Developed and Published by: Crackshell
Released: Aug 2013


General Impressions:
Hammerwatch is a well crafted and entertaining traditional top down 2D action game in the style of Gauntlet. Alone or online with up to three friends, choose one of 6 different classes and work your way through Castle Hammerwatch, filled with traps, secrets, and of course thousands of monsters to destroy, while spending your hard earned gold on upgrades for your characters.

Hammerwatch is at its normal or hard difficulties a punishing, yet rarely unfair game that gives a real sense of mastery as you get better, but it also has an easy difficulty as well as custom mutators you can set to tailor your game experience exactly how you like it.

The game is presented in simple top down 2D sprite graphics that have a retro feel to it, which may be offputting to some but I personally adore the art style. The controls are simple, the action is fast and the Castle itself is very well designed with tons of secrets and puzzles to solve between all the killing.

I'm having a great time playing this game, at time of writing having finished the main game in a private co-op group and just getting started on the (free) expansion. While the game is fun if you're going it alone, it definitely shines the brightest in multiplayer, especially if you want to play a melee character as certain situations are very, very tricky to pass without proper ranged damage.

While I haven't looked at it myself yet, there is also a level editor included and the Steam Workshop has a whole bunch of community created adventures you can play, potentially adding a heckton of hours to the longevity of the game.

If you see the game at a discount somewhere I can safely recommend a purchase if you like some throw back, uncomplicated dungeon crawling action. Especially so if you have a few friends you can pass around 4 pack copies to and drag along for the fun!

A little bomb ! Been playing it since it came out and before and the devs really did a great job on this !
This game is everything you want about gauntlet !

Choosing between this or the gauntlet of arrowhead is quite difficult but in the end I would still chose this one as
-The graphics are lovely pixel arts
-The characters do have a progression system unlike gauntlet
-Levels, boss and monsters have more varietly
-Classes are fun and well thought
-Finally, the modding support adds a lot to the game :)

Only thing the gauntlet of arrowhead has is
-Daily challenge stuff and so on which didn't really hook me.
-More action oriented
-Price :/

Definitely pick it, , it's cheap and way fun with friends! You'll never regret this investment !!!

I don't understand why people like this game. It's probably because I never play coop.

Single-player-wise the gameplay just feels too mashy and boring. If you play without infinite lives it's too easy to die and with the lives there's no reason to care.

It's entirely possible I'm missing something. Maybe there's something in the workshop that would help. Idk, I'm too bored to care.

A straight-up homage to Gauntlet that scratches that co-op, top down, dungeon crawling, loot collecting itch.

A couple of observations:

1. This game is way better as online co-op than living room co-op. With multiplayer on the same screen, you're always forced to stick together, but online you can split up and join back together through the multitude of passages.

2. All loot collected is shared! Hooray! I don't have to hate my partners, a la Four Swords, for stealing all my treasure.

3. This game brings back the "bad end" from the days of Ghosts n' Goblins and Bubble Bobble, and is too repetitive to crawl through twice. It should be more upfront on the importance of a certain item.

3. Re-map the autofire trigger to your main attack button, so it is both attack and autofire simultaneously. Your cramped hands will thank you.

While exploring a castle dungeon, the collapse of a bridge have left you (and a few friends) stranded on your own. With the main party lost without your presence they decide to wait for you to find your way back to them. So off you embark on a journey of fortune and glory as you travel deeper into the dungeons of Castle Hammerwatch.

Set in a beautiful pixel-art world, Hammerwatch provides a challenging hack and slash adventure offering a fun solo and local co-op experience with a nice selection of classes to choose from, each with different abilties and playstyles. With plenty of hidden secrets and Easter Eggs, there is plenty to explore. With an extended campaign to the Sun Temple as well as user-created campaigns with the workshop, Hammerwatch offers a fun, but challenging experience.

Pros:
+ Beautiful pixel artwork
+ 2 campaigns as well as workshop support
+ Several classes to choose, each with their own abilities
+ Character progression
+ Hidden secrets and Easter Eggs
+ Controller support for a great couch co-op experience
+ Different difficulty modes (as well as extra challenge/help settings)
+ An auto-attack toggle in the settings (I found out about this way too late)

Cons:
- The main campaign's level layout is always the same (can be considered good and bad)
- The Sunwatch Temple campaign has pretty unfair bosses that may cause some frustration (while soloing at least)
- Online co-op community is quite inactive
- The Millionaire and Genocide achievements can be quite grindy

My Score: 7.5/10

Excellent old school RPG best played with friends. Does get repetitive after a few runs. The dungeons would be better if they were shorter.. Plan 1-2 hours per play session to get past a single dungeon. Great game for $5, wait for it to go on sale.

Pretty good game.

Liked the DLC a lot more than the main story.

Things you may not like at first but will get used to: controls, repetitiveness.

Also community is very nice. It's possible to join others multiplayer game.

Hammerwatch is a successful tribute to an old arcade classic : Gauntlet (1985, Atari). The game is very similar with a top-down view (in a nice pixel art), waves of enemies to defeat, and the usual keys, doors and treasures. There is also a lot of rewarding secrets and puzzles. A blast from the past !

Although it all sounds really boring and repetitve, I can assure you that the game mechanics are very addictive, so if you're into simple hacking and slashing, this game is definitely for you.
