What the developers say:

“Thanks for checking out Coin Crypt! As of now the game is in beta; to me it already provides an intriguing and fun playground to romp around in, but it also feels like it has a lot more potential to tap into! I want to put the game in the hands of people like you and get ideas on how to expand the game in the most interesting possible ways. We expect that game will feel ready in a few months, at which point we'll be releasing at a higher price.”

Is-this-even-the-same-game update, 4/9

April 9th, 2014

Aka the ITETSG update.

The amount that's new and changed is kind of ridiculous. I discussed the general changes and why we're doing it here: http://coincrypt.tumblr.com/post/82220634527/new-coin-crypt

This one comes with caveats too. Music will be weird because it hasn't changed to match the new worlds. Some classes and coins might not make sense anymore. Some enemies won't make sense either. I've spent some time fixing it all up as much as I can, but I've opted to make it playable to everyone before it was finished because I'm really curious what people will think about the general shift happening here.

So please play, and let's talk about it.

Coin Crypt, currently in Early Access, is a top-down roguelite in which you brave a randomly generated dungeon in search of coins. Each coin is assigned a traditional currency value but also doubles as a separate item in your inventory used to attack, defend or heal, as well as to cause or cure status effects. Dozens of unique coin types exist in the game.

Dungeon design is basic and not much makes one room or floor stand out from another, aside from the occasional environment change. You’ll find most of what you’d expect while exploring: shopkeepers who will trade upgrades for coins; secret rooms; random elements like coin hungry cat pillars (not to be confused with caterpillars); enemies ranging from skeletons to bandits to grannies; and chests which contain coins, keys or upgrades. Enemies will chase you if you venture too close, and once you come into contact you’ll be taken to another screen to duel it out.

Battle is where Coin Crypt genuinely tries to be original and takes place in first-person with your palm stretched out before you, with a random selection of coins in it. You can either use one of the coins in your hand or redraw for new ones, but the clock is ticking and both options have a cast time. Meanwhile you can see how close the enemy is to completing his action, what coin he’s using and how many coins he has left. If you survive until he runs out of coins, you win, and if you destroy him before he runs out you’ll also get his unused coins as loot.

Managing what coins you have on hand is an important balance that means you can’t snatch up everything for sale in every shop you find, because if you run out of coins during battle you will die the same as if you’d been killed. Upon death you can spend the total currency value of coins you found to unlock additional characters, each with a unique strength and weakness.

Coin Crypt is easy to pick up and put down, and almost seems more suited for handheld devices and touch controls than PC; however, it plays perfectly fine with mouse and keyboard and the developers have set a very reasonable five dollar asking price, so make your own call here.

I love this game! I can't believe nobody has thought of this coin mechanic before -- I love that there's this perfect tension between spending coins, using them, and hoarding them. I love the card-game and deck-building mechanics, and the surprisingly large and deep variety in the characters.

Seriously, check this out. And don't let graphics or anything hold you back.

This is also the perfect game for stupid grown-ups like me.
You can play it in short bursts, you can put it down safely to deal with the baby, and even if you die horribly you can still bank some long-term progress by cashing in your coins to unlock a new character.

A fun little randomly-generated, roguelike game. Just remember to watch out for Grandma.

Coin Crypt is a roguelike, like FTL or The Binding Of Isaac. It's a game where you have to start all over again if you die. But Coin Crypt has an original concept for its battles; the loot you find, coins in this case, is also used to battle your foes.
Coins can have different properties, like healing for 5 or 10 points, or doing 10 points of damage while taking 5 of your hitpoints. A fun concept that keeps things fresh. If you run out of coins it's game over. You have to be careful which coins you want to use and which ones you want to save as loot.
Of course, all loot is randomized and there are several floors to go through. It's not a big game, I guess one can complete the game in roughly 30 minutes, if you're lucky enough. If you're not lucky enough, you'll at least earn experience points that can be used to unlock new classes that might you help during future playthroughs.
The graphics are simple and all enemies are basically just textured rectangles, but it's cute to look at. The sounds didn't make much of an impression on me, but I guess it fits the game as far as style is concerned.
Recommended for it's original take on the genre. Let's hope more stuff gets added in a later stage, because right now there's not really enough content.
