Reviewing this game as it is still only early access.
I LOVE This game, it is freaking awesome, the old school feeling, the sense of exploration, the sights! However, I know it is still only in early access but I think there needs to be a few things added, such as a slightly larger array of weapons, Toning down the OP-ness of Enemy Magic attacks (Seriously, it will kill you almost instantly with about three hits, when melee attacks to you would usually take only about 10 hits or more) A little bit more variety of elevators and/or secrets such as Buttons to uncover a secret passage, keys to open doors, Maybe add in chests for items, SUPER (That's right, different from the normal!) Secrets, a slightly more diverse Enemy Encounters, Like, more enemies, then again, there is a good selection of enemies already but eh. I don't think maybe adding in the ability to Jump in the game would be a good idea, leave that out, it's a dungeon crawler, no one can jump while crawling. (lol)
What this game is strongest in however is the difficulty, already mentioned how OP enemy magic attacks are, and that needs to be toned down ever so slightly. The sense of exploration is there and is great, the Music (Or ambient noises I guess) REALLY Immerse the player into the game, seriously, sometimes I even get shivers being creeped out, it gives you a sense of danger and fear, Afraid to turn a corner, there have been times I have been jump scared in this game because of the noises almost sounding like they bounce off the walls of the rooms. The inventory system is pretty good, you open the Inventory and the game does not pause, I like that, it gives the player a sense of panic, ESPECIALLY When you are trying to get out a potion of healing (You hope as the potions are randomized each time you play) which means you setting up your inventory bar is CRUCIAL in this game. A thing I would like to see but I kind of have gotten used to, is the ability to use the Mouse Wheel, as haing to use the 1-6 keys on my keyboard have more than once caused me to use a potion when I wanted to use my magic wand.
This game is FREAKING AWESOME, if you were ever in the times of floppy disks, and played those old dungeon crawlers, and love rouge-likes, and having to fear for your life because there is perma-death in the game, this game is your new best friend!
