  • Ever since Diablo hit the scene dungeon-crawling action RPG action has never been the same. Though there have been imitators of various kinds, some with a reasonable degree of success, it generally remains the king of the space. For indie developers trying to make a game in the same space the best bet seems to be to create something with similar concepts but that distinguishes itself in its gameplay in order to avoid comparisons to the big-budget juggernaut. In that regard Book of Demons is a pleasant surprise, sporting an interesting art style and more subdued set of combat mechanics. Rather than trying to match the intensity and chaos of mobs of creatures coming at you Book of Demons favors more methodical and cautious combat, making it a bit more casual-friendly most likely as well. You’re better off carefully approaching enemies and chipping away at them rather than getting into the mix and as long as you don’t mind the slower pacing it works nicely. One complaint is that the method of control can be a bit weird using a cursor pointer, pointing out that perhaps it is better suited to play on a PC using a mouse, but I didn’t find it to be enough of a problem to interfere with enjoyment.
