Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Modify ones attacks
Through the use of "Blessings" the user can modify their attacks and make a custom build character that behaves as they want, for their fighting style.
Pro Old school difficult gameplay
This game is tough, much like arcade beat 'em ups that sucked the player in as well as their quarters. But this is all on purpose as the game has randomly generated levels, much like a roguelike and being like a roguelike, death will be frequent.
Pro Dynamic gameplay
Pro Quick rounds, low commitment
The game isn't time-consuming. You can drop it whenever you need and then pick up again without worrying about losing progress.
Lots of fun weapons and a good sense of humor.
Con Not much of a story
The game tries to blend different mythologies together into one story containing many different gods. While this is not the worst story to try and tell, once the gameplay begins the story pretty much falls to the wayside.
