Cheating is still prohibited in this game

I have banned a big bunch of players today which sucks, I don't want to do it but its the only way to get rid of people who ruin the fun for others.

Please don't cheat, our system is very strickt and it will flag you and get you banned.

Also do not accept cheated items from cheaters, because those get you flagged and it makes our lives harder.

There will be a system in the future that detects changed stats and instabans the cheater immediately, but for now its all manual. So yeah, lets all be legit and enjoy the game yo!

Lets try this one more time. I triple checked no broken constants now, should work just fine in game and out.

Waking up today was my biggest misstake. What a failed day.

TLDR;
This game is not finished, it's packed full of gamebreaking bugs, and bad game design.
Cannot recommed unless on 90% sale

Long version;
This game has a great idea, and the graphics are nice, and when i works it's actually pretty fun.
BUT
1. It does not work half the time, bad netcode and wierd bugs
2. Some very questionable game design decisions.
3. why 4-way shooting in this game?!?!?
4. crammed with gimmicks taken from other games (not really bad but lacks soul and originality)
It just feels all around sloppy and i cannot reccomend

The multiplayer is bugging, the inventory is very hard to understand, crashes and map stucks sometimes happens and the classes are not very well ballanced.
Those are the problems making this game a 7/10 game.
The sprites are cool, the music is good, the RNG is good as well, is hard as ♥♥♥♥ to grow stronger in the begining and make the game very challenging and addictive. It have a lot of potential, but it looks like a beta game when it comes to programming, with some (not much) very frustrating bugs.
If the developers fix the multiplayer crashing sometimes when connecting, the trade sistem and the inventory I think it will be my favorite game, for now, it is a very enjoyable game that worth it's price on sale.

It's a h'n's with roguelike elements, but it lacks the appeal of either. The combat and character progression is too simple to be satisfying, and the game becomes a mindless slaughter pretty quickly. Pixel graphics and poor level design don't help either. Art direction is pretty good and gets the spirit of diablo as good as 5 bucks pixel graphics indie game can, but with no story to back it up it ends up shallow and forgettable.
Don't bother unless you're content with being a viking and slaying lots of things for loot.

This game has potential, yes. And initially, I really liked it.

So it is quite sad to see that so much potential is simply wasted by such a sloppy bug and change management.
Taking into account that the developer team is quite small I can live with some minor bugs.

What I cannot accept, however, is the amount of serious, unnerving bugs which occur although the game has been released in January 2014.

There seems to be no "stable branch" and "nightly branch" support for this game like e.g. Starbound offers.

Vexorian says (quote):

"We have sat down to read the most "helpful" reviews which are mostly negative since there have been problems in the game. We really worked hard and took action to fix all those, and have managed to iron them out! "

Some bugs I found in yesterday's build :
- coins have the same value (1 Gold)
- characters in multiplayer get mixed up
- game terminates to main screen without explanation
- there are numerous issues regarding synchronization of multiplayer games (e.g. in crypts when solving the puzzles with movable pillars, when entering dungeons, etc.).
- mutliplayer has been taken offline due to bug fixing / testing today


So, IMHO the problems have not been ironed out at all. I wonder why such a patch is even released where it certainly could not have been tested throughly. I cannot shake the feeling that paying customers are treated as pre-alpha testers.

It is really sad, because many good ideas have found their way into this game already.

Sorry, but all things considered I have to give this a "thumbs down".
Maybe my opinion will change when the game has finally become more stable.

I liked this game a lot, and it would be one of my go to games to play around and have fun in; i even learned everything necessary to play with my friends online: then they added a new mechanic, mana. Having a mana bar instead of just cooldowns on abilities made all the characters i had fun playing nearly useless. Even now characters that are focused around abilities are terrible in comparison to the ones who have passive damage after x amount of attacks. It makes the game a lot less fun, and variety is almost non-existant. If there was a way to go back to what it was i would in a heart beat.

Disclaimer: I purchased this game using my own funds, and I do not write a review on a game that I have not paid for myself, because I believe they should be fair and unbiased. I don't believe you can get that unless you invest your own funds and support developers, and provide a personal sense of "value".

This is a great rogue-like hack and slash title that is sure to waste some free time. If you are a fan of Diablo, World of Warcraft, Torchlight, The Binding of Isaac, Fate, Legend of Zelda and many others, you will have some fun with this, as you can see elements of each game brought into this in their own unique ways. You have skills and talents to level up to further make your character unique, as you progress through various acts, all with unique background layouts that are quite fun. The comments your character makes from time to time are fun, and in 3 hours didn't get old or too overused to detract from gameplay. It has relics you collect that further enhance your skills as you play, all with unique effects. And hey - Trading Cards! Achievements!

I originally bought this game on sale for $2 and with that being said, is probably where the price point should be. The DLC is also way overpriced for the content that it delivers. While I fully appreciate the time and effort and creativity that these developers put into this game (and they *are* active), I experienced quite a few glitches with online play in just 3 hours. I also found the UI to be a bit un-intuitive, and it takes a short while to figure out how things work. But once you do, play progresses rather smoothly.

There are quite a few regular glitches (that they are currently working on), but I really feel it has earned its very positive rating. It really does have quite a bit going for it!

I can't speak much for single player play, as my experience thus far has solely been multiplayer, and aside from the glitches, I would recommend this game on sale. It has its own unique charm and blend of so many elements, the fun it provides was well worth the $2 I spent. When the bugs get worked out, and the price of the DLC drops to maybe $.99 each, I might put some more time into it. Honestly, we may just play it again a little more tomorrow....it was pretty fun.

At $5.99 I would not purchase this game in its current state. Once all the bugs are worked out, and if the DLC gets included into that price, it would be a solid buy. If you catch it on sale, though, it will be a much better value.

The game is pretty fine and has nice potential. Altough I have a few gripes with the devs. Multiplayer is fairly unpolished, with some bugs in different forms, but single player and local coop are significantly better. I am annoyed at some changes in some updates. For example, replacing the paladin's tri-hammer skill with a nearly useless single hammer skill. This is one of my biggest gripes as the paladin has been and still is one of my favourite classes but it is so annoying to use holy hammer and remember how awesome the skill used to be. Regardless I reccomend this game to any looking for a nice single/ local coop hack n slash game.

Game is a lot of fun. Can't go wrong for the price.

The DLC is a bit over priced for what it's worth, and without it you're basically playing the "Demo" of the game.


The game is far too heavily reliant on gear though, which is a shame. I went from having a +15, to +86, to a +2000 damage weapon within 10 levels, kind of explosively exponential growth.

The game is still trying to find itself long after it has released. I want to love this game but I feel like it's shifting around too much and pushing the 'extra' content which I am not sure I want to pay up for. The gameplay can get quite monotonous at times, there's not too much of a shake-up of playstyle. It's so close to being brilliant and yet never completely hooks me.

I stopped playing the game when I got to the point where tiny invisible pellets that I could not see among all of the gore dealt a trillion damage to you. I wouldn't be giving this game a negative review if those things were actually visible and not so damn cheap. Completely ruined the gaming experience for me time after time after time after time.

What makes it even worse it is something they can't even fix, I'm not joking, the damage bug is like hard baked into the code, so when you gain super high health the enemies damage is upped as well, to an unimaginable amount, which is something they have been proven not able to correct. They still haven't been able to fix placing projectiles above all the sprites so that you can see them. Devs need to go back to school and learn Game Maker all over again.

Some helpful review over there, I promise.
Black Ops 3 is worth 60 euros.
Hero Siege is worth 0.59 euros. On sale.
Let's think about it.
It means that you can get 101 copies of Hero Siege for 60 euros.
Now let me ask you, would you rather BO3 or 101 copies of Hero Siege?
The decision is pretty much made for you.
