The roguelite genre has seen a massive surge in popularity in recent years, with a few notables receiving widespread critical acclaim and sales to match. Given this kind of competition, a newcomer really needs to make its mark in order to stand out, and even in early access Voidigo is one to check out.
Terrence & Norwood In The Fog
HIGH Switching characters.
LOW Laggy combat.
WTF A talking egg?
I’ve never been an Assassin’s Creed fan. From the start, the series has always felt too bloated and full of busywork, and the premise of reliving past lives through DNA reconstruction (because DNA records every minute of action and every word of every ancestor’s life, I guess?) never gelled for me.
Still Great Years Later
HIGH Obtaining 30 ships and then the ghost for twice the firepower!
LOW That ghost always runs out right before a boss battle.
WTF Well hello there, floating half-of-a-lady-robot boss…
HIGH Transforming robobugs are awesome. The chill, early exploration.
LOW The Time Trials.
WTF Some of the hidden skins are ridiculously hard to get.
The Scenic Route To Death
HIGH A very pretty hub world.
LOW Stiff and clunky combat.
WTF Dodging, parry, and running on the same button?!
Great, Beyond A Shadow Of Doubt
HIGH Great graphics, great controls, fantastic bosses.
LOW A few platforming sections require a little too much precision.
WTF Wait, how long have I been able to swing my sword upward!?
Retro Inspired Frustration
HIGH Great-looking levels and bosses.
LOW Having to replay entire levels after dying at the boss.
WTF Unreasonably large hitboxes during a late-stage boss.
Betrayal, Revenge, Repeat
HIGH Beautiful environments.
LOW The combat feels so samey.
WTF Why is Zenun even there?
Blisters On Me Fingers
HIGH Finishing a 30x combo.
LOW Getting hit right before finishing a 30x combo.
WTF Waiting hours to unlock basic mechanics.
