This Game is the One of the Most Polished, and AWESOME Games I've ever Played.
Makes me Wonder why this Game isn't on the Featured Items Page...
I have to warn you though: This is Pretty Hardcore. Even Beginner Mode is tough.
The game, like the store page says: Involves the Player to traverse increasingly difficult depths
stuffed full of Monsters who want you DEAD.
Everytime you kill a Monster: you can grab it's 'bubble' which gets you to level up.
When you level up, there are really cool upgrade trees that are instantaneously put into play.
And you start from scratch every time you die.
And you Die every time, as this game doesn't have an end.
So the Replay value of this game seems practically Infinite.
And That's Only the Beginner and Expert Modes!
There is also the Karma Mode which let's you instantly get a limited number of upgrades to start with.
But that's all you get.
Then you are thrown into a Horde of enemies.
Note: Karma Mode Levels('Karma XX') build up as you play the Beginner and Expert Modes.
Note 2:When you Start the Game, it may throw you STRAIGHT into Karma Mode. And Use a Level, so don't start opening and closing the Program unless you need to.
If you aren't in to fast paced platforming where you WILL die. Then don't buy it. (But Please give it a try anyway.)
But else, BUY IT.
Don't be Discouraged that this game doesn't run on Linux though, It runs PERFECTLY on Wine(Wine Is Not an Emulator, which is a Open Source Compatability Layer that trys to get Windows Programs to Run on Linux; it isn't perfect, but it's still great.)
I think personally that Valve should team up with the Wine Development Team to Help make Wine better and get more steam games to run on Linux without requiring developers to rewrite/port their games to Linux.
My Suggestions for the Game are:
--Add a Local Multiplayer Mode: It would be Really Fun to have Either a Co-Op/Competitive Mode where 2 or more players would be trying to share the resources/trying to kill each other while simultaneously dealing with the
terrain and enemies!
--Make an infinite mode: This one is optional, but I would like to have a 'God-Mode' where I could play around and see what it would be like to have ALL THE ABILITIES AT ONCE! :)
I Definitly Recommend this Game!!!
