This Is Not A Review: Dungeon Of The Endless (Switch)

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Dungeon of the Endless, available on Switch, PS4, XBO and PC, developed by Amplitude Studios and published by Merge Games.


Curious Expedition Review

Robbing Indigenous People For Fame And Profit

HIGH A fresh roguelike take that veers away from fast action.

LOW Forgetting the ‘examine’ function mapped to Y existed.

WTF Trying to finish the final map.


Children Of Morta Review

Generations Of Guardians

HIGH Exciting battles against impossible odds. A terrific story.          

LOW An ill-advised timed section.

WTF Did we really need jiggle effects for pixel-art characters?


RAD Review

Contaminated

HIGH Charm and color abound.

LOW That death didn’t feel like my fault.

WTF I don’t trust a man that looks like Kylo Ren and weaponizes children.


Infected Shelter Preview

Currently Available In Early Access For PC

Zombies and side-scrolling brawlers seem like a perfect match, and Infected Shelter combines them into a gory, goofy roguelike. Players punch, throw, slash, and shoot their way through ruined city streets. Along the way they find assorted limited-use weapons to demolish the undead horde.
