DemonCrawl Review Gameplay

DemonCrawl Gameplay

DemonCrawl is a mixture of classical Minesweeper and rogue-like. Besides empty cells, and cells with numbers and monsters (instead of mines) you will also see dozens of objects. From gold to useful NPCs as follows. But don’t think that you will get items only with positive effects. Some of them can be debuffs or curses, so-called omens, that will make your game even harder.

DemonCrawl Random items

There are five item types in the game:

  • with passive effects
  • consumables
  • omens (debuffs)
  • magic items (with mana cost)
  • legendary items

Moreover, you cannot lose from the first mistake as you have 5 health points as you start the game. Further, you can heal or stack armour to increase the number of possible failures. In addition, a great number of items will make your every run unique and your avatar customization will creat your personal style.

Graphics and Controls

Game is designed in pixel graphics. Sometimes it is not detailed and it is hard to understand who is before you – NPC or a monster.

Controls are easy and comfy in usage – left and right mouse buttons. You can zoom in or out the field. Although, in harder levels when the field is big you will have to move the screen with WASD to see all the cells. That makes the controls less comfortable.

Sound and Narrative

There is nice background music in DemonCrawl. Although it makes you bored really quickly and you want to turn your favourite playlist on to make the game more interesting.

There isn’t any specific storyline. You will have to solve quests with different locations that are divided by helpful zones that appear randomly between the zones. Such as shops, bazaars, teleports etc.
