+Great OST.
+Well optimized. Even on an old PC, no worries.

-But not enough different soundtracks.
-Unbalanced : Some Boss can't be beat without some specific upgrades.
-Repetitive. Always the same rooms, the same monsters, the same upgrades....
-Only 4 loadouts to start.

To sum up, it's not a bad game, but it's boring and not worth 9e.

I think the idea of this game is awesome. A nautical themed FPS roguelike. The graphics are nice pixel style. The music is good, if not a bit obnoxious. It's just that the execution is terrible. Every room feels the same. None of the enemies or bosses are fun. The variety of weapons is bad. You just strafe and hope around and hope you win.

Go check out Ziggurat or Tower of Guns instead. Hell, even Heavy Bullets is miles ahead of this. Don't buy this unless it's on sale. Even then, don't buy this.

This game is special.

Initially the game was placed on Steam Greenlight on Aug 31, 2012
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=93241332&searchtext=

Then they had a successful Kickstarter campaign that collected $12,540 USD. (August 4, 2013 - September 3, 2013)
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1125357480/paranautical-activity-old-school-fps-meets-rogueli

There were issues with the greenlight campaign:
"Code Avarice already set up a placeholder Steam Greenlight page and Steam 'didn't want to send the message that indies can seek out publishers to bypass Steam Greenlight.'"
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-06-04-first-person-roguelike-paranautical-activity-not-allowed-past-greenlight-even-with-a-publisher

But Officially, the title got Greenlit by 8/28/2013.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1125357480/paranautical-activity-old-school-fps-meets-rogueli/posts/582749

Subsequently, in October 2014 the developer threatened Gabe Newell's life over a Steam listing issue associated with the title.
"harsh lesson Paranautical Activity developer Mike Maulbeck learned today when after a Steam snafu erroneously advertised his game as an Early Access title he crossed a line and tweeted a death threat to Gabe Newell. Following this outrage, the game was pulled from Valve's distribution service."

http://gameranx.com/updates/id/17237/article/paranautical-activity-on-steam-early-access/

Needless to say, the developer didnt handle the situation and associated fallout well:
http://www.pcgamer.com/paranautical-activity-removed-from-steam-following-developer-outburst/

This caused the game to be removed from the Steam store, the offending dev to resign from the studio ("Code Avarice"), the "Paranautical Activity" IP to be sold to another company ("Digerati Distribution & Marketing"), followed by the offending dev rejoining his original studio.
http://www.polygon.com/2015/2/17/8053713/paranautical-activity-death-threat-gabe-newell-steam
http://www.pcgamer.com/paranautical-activity-returns-to-steam-with-deluxe-atonement-edition/

On the Early Access Steam store page, they claimed "We're planning to add multiplayer co-op in the very near future, as well as a ton more content, and of course some bug fixes and polish." https://web.archive.org/web/20140418040048*/http://store.steampowered.com/app/250580

They also claimed that:
"Paranautical Activity multiplayer is definitely a thing that is happening...We’ve been really busy trying to get MP working...The multiplayer patch will be going live before the year anniversary of the game (february 14th)[2014]"
http://web.archive.org/web/20140407082949/http://codeavarice.com/post/71570505839/paranautical-activity-mulitplayer

Subsquently, the devs disclosed that they would not add a multiplayer mode.
"Sorry to those who purchased this game under the guise of the fact it will be multiplayer. We just couldn’t rebuild the entire game to make this happen, there is only two of us.”
http://www.pcgamesn.com/indie/paranautical-activity-developers-fight-community-over-cancelled-co-op-mode-insist-roguelike-fps-not-being-abandoned

Allegedly, the devs were asking for good reviews of the game and doing some "heavy moderating" ie. censoring of negative critique, on their forums.
https://www.reddit.com/r/Steam/comments/2jspdu/paranautical_activity_devs_begging_for_good/

The offending dev claimed he was "quitting the video game industry."

I highly recommend this game. It's got great weapons, well-designed rooms and weapons, good music, and really fast-paced gameplay. If you want something that is like Quake, with minimal story and maximum speed/carnage, THIS is the game for you.

9/10 - The only reason it isn't 10/10 is because it has giant pixel spiders, and I f___ing HATE spiders!

Decent Roguelike, doomesque enemies +weapons. Annoying at times due to the main strategy of dealing with bosses being circlestrafe+jump. Pickups from boss rooms & item rooms in general serve to add minor changes to gameplay, mostly by increasing a stat or adding a gimic to your movement (wall flipping jumps, shorter, faster jumps etc.)

Pros.
Great Soundtrack
generated levels
Interesting Level Design
Creative Enemy Design
Good Art Style
Secret levels and floor
Great Bosses

Paranautical Activity: Deluxe Atonement Edition is a rogue-like FPS game that takes elements and gameplay from Doom and Quake and couples them with a game like Binding of Isaac, however quickly falls flat. The game is terribly punishing with your small health pool and terrible weapon selection. The controls and gameplay are designed so that the player has to run around and constantly kite enemies hoping their shots will land and hit the enemies. The controls and gameplay are clunky and all the rooms the player goes through seem so repetitive as they are all boxes with different props and obstacles thrown in. There are items that you can purchase to upgrade but the game does nothing to tell you what does the item do. Most of the time you just purchase an item only to find out that it has negative effects! Also, the difficulty of the game seems odd, some enemies and bosses are really easy and on the other hand some are really difficult. I did about 10 runs, and they were all very similar just with different bosses and the 2nd level boss usually takes me down each time. Looking at the Steam Achievements looks like only ~15% of the players even made it past Level 2 which just shows you how punishing and difficult this game is.

Paranautical Activity Review

For me: 7/10 For others 3/10

Let's just be honest right off the bat: you might not like this game. It's not nearly as replayable as other roguelikes, maybe 20 hours at most. it's very repetetive, which is something I personally am okay with, but many people aren't. The power ups aren't interesting, the gameplay is pretty good, even if it's just strafing in a circle for every boss or room, dodging is annoying especially with homing shots. for homing shots, the only way to dodge it is cling against the wall so the bullet flies into the wall. There are some things in the game that make it very laggy, making me rush to kill the boss before it lags too hard ( talking about the snail boss ). it's not well optimized for sure. But it's fun to play in my opinion! Like, it's almost literally binding of Isaac in FPS form! If you are fine with all these cons, then this game should be plenty fun for you!

I cannot reccomend this game. I love first person shooters like Quake and Doom, and rougue likes such as Isaac a ton, so when I saw that this game was a mix of those with a cool art style, I eagerly purchased it. I regret not refunding it.
This game isn't fun, and, my god, is it slow. Games like Doom or The Binding of Isaac are fast paced, with constant action mixed into the strategy of play they demand, but this game, is not that. Every room is a chore to get through, as it takes a few seconds to get into the action, which boasts a combat system with a wide variety limited choice of weaponry that gives little diversity in game play. The combat itself is clunky and isn't satisfying to attack. Killing enemies is satisfying, but only in the sense that you'll be thinking "thank god I finished this room, I can only hope that the next isn't the same thing", and are slightly relieved to be done. Speaking of next rooms, they might as well all be the same. I feel as if I am not exploring or getting through an adventure, as I am doing nothing but repeating the same mundane gameplay of the last challenge. This game can be summed up in one word: boring.

Do not buy this game. Do not support it's jerk of a developer who wants to kill the guy who put his game up for sale. Do not encourage games like this to be made again. Do not waste your time or money. Buy The Binding of Isaac. Buy Doom. Buy Ziggurat. Buy Tower of Guns. Buy Devil Daggers. Buy almost any other game and you will have a better experience. ♥♥♥♥ this game.

TL;DR Don't buy Paranautical Activity.

Paranautical activity is a rogue like first person shooter inspired by binding of issac and doom its a kind of difficulty that sort of puts out binding of issacs difficulty and really sort of has quake machainichs with doom like monsters, despite its rough past with valve/steam its back and its very good i would not reccomend it to people or are bad at games even i have trouble with this game how ever it is worth the price.

pros
-binding of issac but in first person and with guns
-bunny hopping done easy
-fun to play

cons
-difficult (duh)
-hard to aim while Bhopping
-can only swap one weapon out

overall its a good game and i can enjoy it i rate it with 7/10 and slap it with a recommendation

I can see the logic behind the negative reviews. This game is not for everyone. It requires patience, reflexes and somewhat grinding for achievements - therefore the items.

Now if you are not a fan of rogue-like, action genre, this game wouldn't be the best match for you. If you are, however and want to have some fun, this game suits your needs perfectly.

I will start with saying that the game is really hard. This doesn't make the game frustrating though. After you get the grasp of the mechanics and familiar with the items, it will be only a matter of time to finish the game.

David Bowie (RIP) is a playable character in this game (Though I don't think he would appreciate the choice of soundtrack.).

Gameplay is fast-paced. That means there will be times you won't even understand how you died or took massive amount of damage. So never rely on your health being full. You always need to be alert and keep your reflexes up because the ways to die in this game are just too many.

Like most of the rogue-like dungeon crawlers, RNG factor is significant. Game has six different characters with a huge item pool. There are many things that could make reaching the end a piece of cake. You can get the most OP items on the first floors, you can pray to RNG gods and get some ridiculous stats with the passive items, you can find the boss room without too much wandering around the rooms and these thing also could make the runs really hard vica-versa.

Simple, pixelated, yet colorful graphics makes the game charming and kind of fits the style of the game itself, in my opinion.

Music is... well, it is dubstep. Depends on your approach to electro music. Although I don't like dubstep myself, it fits the fast-paced theme and makes you randomly jump and shoot to everyone and everywhere, because the groove is real.


Gameplay: 8/10
Graphics 7/10
Music: 7/10
Replay value: 9/10

Overall: 7.5/10, a good game for dungeon crawler or dubstep fans.

Decent Roguelike, doomesque enemies +weapons. Annoying at times due to the main strategy of dealing with bosses being circlestrafe+jump. Pickups from boss rooms & item rooms in general serve to add minor changes to gameplay, mostly by increasing a stat or adding a gimic to your movement (wall flipping jumps, shorter, faster jumps etc.)

Pros.
Great Soundtrack
generated levels
Interesting Level Design
Creative Enemy Design
Good Art Style
Secret levels and floor
Great Bosses

Cons.
Lack of Variety in Levels
Lack of Variety in Weapons

Do not buy this game, I'd bought it 2 years ago, and have never been able to fix the game breaking bug it came with. A constant down, right input on the mouse or controller makes this game completely unplayable, and Steam refuses to give me a refund on it for it being unplayable.

Not really worth. Extremelly repetitive and for hardcore players. After some minutes playing (and maybe frustrated) you could be bored. There are others rogue-like games with still support and patches. I can't recommend it, perhaps for collectionist or very very hardcore players of rogue-like.

Paranautical Activity is a dungeon crawler FPS with arcade elements, it shares trashy dubstep music and voxel graphic with Dead Bits, the level construction and power ups with The Binding of Isaac and the fast paced gameplay with DooM and Unreal.

Just like in The Binding of Isaac, this game plays on several different floors, each with rooms that have to be cleared before proceeding into the next room, each floor with two bosses, one of which is optional and rewards the player with an additional power-up.

The graphic is quite simplistic, yet is nicely colourful and blends well with the very arcadish sound effects and the not-deplorable dubstep soundtrack.
Regarding the soundtrack... I can't abstain from admitting that the quality isn't great: it's dubstep, raw, crude, pumping and absolutely "videogame-like". The final product is an OST that is hardly playable outside of the game, but if you let it run on background as you play, if you can bare with it for a while without getting an headache, it becomes a fantastic soundtrack that only makes you more and more eager to keep playing this apparently mediocre videogame.

Paranautical Activity isn't for everyone, it's an hardcore game that will surely faze any casual gamer in matter of minutes: this game is unforgiving, it requires fast reflexes, great aim and ability to adapt to the new. The dozens of power-ups and the repetitive yet different level design can offer a new experience each and every new playthrough; on top of this, the player can choose up to six different characters, each with its own stats (such as health, speed, power, etc.).

As final note, the customisation in terms of graphic and sound options is minimal, however, it is possible to modify the FoV (Field of View) from 30 to 150.
If you need ratings:

Graphic: 6/10
Sounds: 7/10
Gameplay: 8/10
Longevity: 8/10

Overall 7/10

Buy this game if you're an hardcore FPS player who enjoys dungeon crawlers and/or arcade games. Skip it if you don't have experience with FPS.

The idea was promissing.
A Rouguelike shooter. How could that be bad?
The implementation is just pathetic.
Graphics is olay.
Animation is horrible.
All weapons are too boring to use.

Don't buy this game.
No matter how it looks like fun to you, you'll be disappointed in 30 seconds.

Before you play this game, I have some questions for you.

Do you want to run faster than sonic given flash powers?

Do you want to play a first person Isaac shooter?

Do you want to pull your hair out trying to 100% this game?

If so, Buy this game.
