  • Given that I’m a fan of X-Com-style tactical strategy and the variety that making things into roguelikes tends to bring I was excited to check this title out. The good news is that for the pretty low price point it succeeds pretty well at having the right overall feel in combat, proper opportunities to customize your squad in their skills and equipment, and overall have elements of both risk and surprise as you try to progress. That said, while at their core while roguelikes tend to re-use the same base enemies or looks and reconfigure them to not play the same way every time if you’re starved for variety in that base things start to feel repetitive all the same. There’s a trap here that you’re going through the same types of areas and facing the same types of enemies too often and with too little distinction from one another so the overall experience starts to feel redundant somehow. If you love this style of play and are looking for a fix on the cheap this may scratch that itch, just walk in aware that in terms of variety the game is lacking more than I’d usually expect in even budget roguelike titles.
