By the time this is written, the game is still in Early Access. So this is going to be edited in the future when new stuff is added. Until then…
Oh my GOD. THIS GLORIOUS GAME. I’ve been very interested in it for quite a long time and therefore I was dangerously hyped. The result? I haven’t made a greater purchase during Steam sales since Skyrim.
As you may have seen, Crypt of the NecroDancer is a hardcore roguelike game where the whole dungeon goes at the music rhythm. The main purpose as usual is to keep going deeper while the levels get harder and harder. I am not an expert of the genre but those who are shouldn’t be disappointed by the amount of roguelike elements this game has.
Although it’s still an Early Access the game already has enough content to be played for HUNDREDS of hours. Moreover, this game is extremely challenging, so I say hi to every game risk-seeker that is reading this at the moment.Pros
+ Randomized dungeons, making every time you play this game different.
+ 3 Zones, filled with 3 levels plus a Boss Room for each. A 4th Zone is being created while I write this. Zones can be played individually once they’re unlocked, in case you want to practice one of them in particular or simply don’t struggle into the Hardcore mode.
+ The soundtrack is a pure EARGASM. This can actually be one of the greatest features of this game, actually. D. Baranowsky, seriously, you did it again. Just take my money and my soul, your music is worth much more.
+ Many characters available (and more to come), with unique skills and weaknesses.
+ Practise Mode, allowing you to learn and master patterns for both minor enemies and Bosses.
+ Daily Challenge dungeons, making this game very updated for the challenge lover.Cons
- You can sync your MP3 Music. Seriously, who the hell would change Baranowsky’s tracks?
- Easy to lose your beat combo when you press Pause and then resume.
- Confusing Gamepad settings in case you want to set an alternative key for arrow combinations (such as Up+Down).
- Too addictive. My real life responsabilities hate this game.
All in all, just grab this gem ‘cause none of you will ever be disappointed. And as I said this is in development, so I strongly believe this will just go for more. Better. Funnier. THIS IS THE CRYPT OF THE NECRODANCER DUDES!Early Access Final Mark
: 9.5/10 These kind of games can save our generations.
