After 30 minutes of gameplay I had to stop playing to buy a second copy of this game for my boyfriend as a gift. I need him to understand where my spare time will go from now on.

Everything is going according to plan. Neither of us can stop playing. ;)

10/10 would dance again!

Crypt of the Necrodancer is the kind of game that gives you ♥♥♥♥♥♥s.
It's made with love and passion and you can feel that, as it sends shivers down your spine and erects your ears and eyes, while dancing through dark dungeons, defeating bouncing monsters and even a skeleton conga line.
This is only 15 bucks and yet worth more than most of the AAA titles out there.
If you're into gaming and music, get it. The soundtrack from Danny B. is exceptionally great and you can even switch between it, a more rousing electronic cover soundtrack and a ♥♥♥♥ing awesome metal one! And if you have no taste in great music, simply use your own stuff.
The game is easy to learn but freaking hard to master, using only 4 keys. If you like to move it, move it, just grab a Dancepad and get it on!
There are so many characters with unique bits of story and a complete different gameplay, many enemies, bosses, unlockable items, EVERYTHING!
You haven't hit the purchase button yet? DO IT AND TURN THE VOLUME UP! Your neighbours gonna love it, too, I promise!

Easily one of the best roguelikes I've played. Having to play to the beat adds a significant but fun challenge. I'm not a big fan of electronic music like this, but this soundtrack is incredible, especially the boss pieces.

Highly recommended, even for people like me who don't usually get into roguelikes.

This is the most impressive rogue-like I have ever played. CoND beautifully integrates tile based combat with music. Each turn lasts for a beat of the current level's song, leading to fun, fast paced action. Even during early access it felt like a complete game, and the full release is a masterpiece.

The controls are easy and straighforward, requiring only the arrow keys to play. The graphics are simple but well made.

The music is great. The soundtrack was composed by Danny B, and each song is edited masterfully into the game. CoND lets you use your own music for the levels, but I have never done it because I love the core soundtrack so much. Despite hearing the songs hundreds of times, I never get tired of them.

The various weapons and equipment provide a wide variety of play styles and item interactions. The enemies are well designed, each with varying movement and attack mechanics. The boss fights are unique and wonderful experiences. Each one is musically themed, and the varying musical styles reinforces the awesomeness of the game's music.

There is a very large amount of content and replayability. Between items, enemies, and floor layouts, there is a lot of variation between runs. There are high score and fastest time leaderboards which are very competitive, and people frequently race the game live. CoND can be very difficult at first because you have to learn each weapon's mechanics and each enemy's attack patterns, but there are many tutorial and training mechanisms built into the game. Practicing is well worth the time, and mastering the game is very rewarding.

I recommend this game to anyone. It is an absolute must play if you like rogue-likes or music based games.

Rhythm-based rogue-like where you move to the beat of the music as you kill the undead, armadillos, mushrooms, harpies, and a lot more as you dive deeper into the crypt.

It's as fun as it sounds.

Pros:
-Amazing music
-Polished
-Easy to play, hard to master gameplay
-Unique for its genre
-Great replayability
-FUN

Cons:
-Not gonna be everyone's cup of tea
-Boss variety feels a bit lacking, though they are well designed

Everything about this game is just perfection. Two Genres that would never have worked together, and yet it does, and beautifully at that. For a game like this, the music will play a huge part of the quality of the game, and I think Danny B really outdid himself with this. I just can't stop listening to the soundtrack, and then on top of that, we now have 2 alternative albums to listen to!

Gameplay is equally fantastic. Every enemy has their own movements to the beat. And it's down to you to figure out how to beat each enemy. Every Zone has a different set of enemies, and the difficulty increases nicely with each zone. The bosses are some of the most clever and innovative bosses I have ever seen in a game. They fit so well with the game, and they still function in fun and unique ways. I mean one of the bosses is basically an entire chess set! Best part is, every single piece moves just like they do in real chess.

This game is definitely a contender to be a GOTY for me. It's addictive, it's fun, and the fact you have the choice to have your own music, the mod support, the variety of characters and the ease of changing soundtracks just shows how much effort and detail these guys have put in to the game. I just can't recommend this enough. Take note all you aspiring devs, this is Early Access done right.

This game is exactly what it says it is, a mash between the roguelike genre and rhythm games. But it is more than that. The first guideline is fairness : It is one of the only fair roguelikes. When you die, you will be able to watch the replay of your last few moves so you can understand what killed you and why. I have played this game for almost 100 hours, and never have I felt like my death was unfair. It was always my own fault, so I couldn't blame the game for anything. And that takes the frustration out of the experience.

The second one is mastery : while you will have to learn a few patterns and item effects, they are pretty straightforward, and the game has a training room where you can learn at your own pace everything you want to learn. But the real difficulty comes in when you have to adapt to those patterns, dance with the enemies without making a mistake, and when there are multiple enemies, you'll have to keep track of what each of them is doing and adapt to the situation. This would be easy to do if it wasn't for the time restriction : you can't stay here and think, you have to keep moving to the beat. That is why you need mastery : the ability to master the patterns to a point where they become second nature, for you won't have time to think, only react.

Put these two wors together, and you get Crypt of the Necrodancer : difficult but fair.You won't need luck or knowledge, you won't need any wiki to remember what every item does, the only thing you'll need is yourself, your brain, your reflexes, your skill. Are you up to the task ? Can you manage to defeat the Necrodancer and escape from the Crypt ? You are the ony one able to answer that question.

Hard as balls, fantastic music, great gameplay, and a great premise in the story. It also has the side benefit of being completely unique, nothing else like it out there at the moment.

A game I keep cursing at, rage quiting, and yet keep coming back to. Truly rewarding, as the game gets better as you get better.

Can't recommend it enough.

You will die - a lot. But the mechanics are so solid in this game, that there is never any question as to who's at fault when you die; and that's refreshing. I've been sucked into this game for hours, intending to sit down for a short play session, only to end up trying again and again to improve my skills, and progress. In the age of depressing, gritty, gaming-realism, this game is ridiculously fun and quirky, and I hope the creators know what a gem of a game they've got here. And the music? I don't even know where to start. I only wish there was more of this boogie based dungeoncrawler...

Did I mention lots of female protagonists?

The thing is: I really like rythm games but I usually get bored quickly by them because they have nothing more to offer than just doing the same songs over and over again to get a better accuracy score.

So here comes Crypt of the NecroDancer taking what I love about rythm games and combining it with another genre I've come to love over the last year: roguelike.

There are various permanent options to unlock for your rounds, be it better and differently working weapons, armor, spells or other miscellaneous equipment. You don't just buy equipment to start with though, there are randomly generated chests in each level, you unlock better items to be found in those and/or more spawned chests. Which is an awesome way to keep the procedural feeling alive and not just making the game considerably easy to blast through.

Each enemy has a certain pattern and rythm of moving and attacking, so due to the many different types of enemies there's a lot to learn and adapt to, which I love. If you don't quite have rythm in your blood, doing the constant moving to the beat and concentrating on visual patterns at the same time might get frustrating. Don't fret though! The game offers a training mode for both the basic monsters and minibosses - only ones you encountered yet, no spoilers.

The music is fantastic and the artstyle just nails the whole serious yet not serious mood of the game. I'm totally in love with Crypt of the NecroDancer! <3

Have you ever danced with a Green Dragon in the pale dungeon light?


This game is great, the default music is amazing. and i can't stop thinking about my next run.

Usually i'm pretty awful at Roguelikes, and this one is no exception, but i really enjoy how the music interacts with the monsters, and the dungeon in general. And this unique concept is the reason i keep coming back

As strange as overview of this game sounds, it is actually one of the best games in 3 categories: Roguelike, Rhythm Games and games that were in Early Access.

Pros:
Even with typical roguelike RNG involved, every battle is winnable. It can be walk in the park, or run on a thin edge of a blade, but still, there's always a way to win.
Every playthrough is different in terms of enemies you meet, map and items.
Most of the items have both good and bad side - what saves you in one situation can lead you to death in another.
Soundtrack - if you know Danny, there's nothing else to add, all of his works are brilliant, and this one isn't an exception.
Characters - each of them is actually unique, and will totally change the way you play.
Rhythm - you don't actually need to always follow it(with SOME secretly secret exception), but following the rhythm is rewarded in many different ways.

Cons:
Some characters are incredibly hard(think Blue Baby/Lost from BoI:Rebirth), but you knew it wasn't an easy game,right?
Learning enemies movesets is necessary for winning, and takes trial and error. Luckily, you can unlock special training grounds that let you kill them until you are sure you mastered all the ways of eliminating them.

Overall, the game is fantastic. Strongly recommended for people who are even barely interested in music games or roguelikes.
