Incredibly fun and unforgiving.
You start the game out with a revolver and some bullets and work through randomly generated levels trying to manage your health and ammo while collecting pieces of radiation from the corpses of your fallen enemies and canisters that are placed on the map. Collecting enough will eventualy allpw you to level up....but only once you beat the current level. Once you beat the level, youll be given several randomly generated "mutations" or perks to choose from that do various things like modfy your special ability, give you more health, increase your ammo cap, increase drop rates, allow you to pick up items from further away, or countless others. There are clear mutations that are better for certain characters and some that are just good choices overall.
This game shines in comparisn to other rougelike games in its ability for you to cater a run and have the objectives to be to try and get x or y weapon and get a, b, and c mutations. Unlike in games like th binng of issac where you will just get random weapons and there are too many for you to be able to realiably make a plan, there are enough to provide variety while not being so much that its overwhelming to understand and providing enough oppertunitie to switch weapons on levels. Its also really important to understand that while you can "plan" your runs to do something in particular, it is still hard to execute because you have to stay on your feet the entire time and one stray bullet, misfired rocket, or graze against the wrong enemy is enough to end even the most promsing of runs.
While nuclear thorne is still in early access, the game has more going for it than many games that are already published in the same price range. Unlike other games with different playable classes and characters, there is no clearly best character and every character has their own unique playstyle that can be played effectively. The game has constantly been recieving updates and Im looking forward to even more in the future!
