Ignore my Steam counter. Offline play... Nuclear Throne
is a top down rouge-like shooter. Yes, it's a rouge-like and yes it's in Early Access but don't let bother you, it gets constant updates and the devs are pretty cool... now onto the game. (I WILL EDIT THIS OVER TIME AS UPDATES COME OUT)
This game is hard. Like, really hard. But that's good! It isn't RNG heavy which can be a difficult thing to do correctly in a rouge-like, luckily this one pulls it off really well! You will need to learn how the game works, adapt to your guns and ammo, and become a more skillful player in order to survive.
The shooting in the game is... odly satisfying. You feel like your guns (or melee weapons!) have power and can do actual damage. And they can... the amount of guns in this game is fantastic. Blood guns, Acid guns, Guns, more guns, and guns. The ammo system is such a great adition, as it makes you be more tactical about your shots and makes you change guns. Which is a good thing as I said, adaption is a big part of this game.
You can also choose from a roster of unique and interesting characters, that all change how you play the game. Once you find the character that's right for you, you're going to have a good time! For instance, maybe you're good at dodging you can play as Melting who has 2 health instead of 8, but has a really powerful move where he can explode all the corpses around! Or, maybe you want to dual wield? You can do that with Steroids, a big guy that has less accuracy, but can use both guns at the same time. And not only are there multiple characters, there are also upgrades that last for each run. Each character has a specific upgrade that does something unique to that character, along with PLENTY of other upgrades. You can also choose "crowns" at the start of a game they act as little modifiers, such as, no ammo drops, more gun drops. Or, free mutations narrow future. These can add a whole new challenge to the game which is nice... I haven't really tested them out too much as I'm not skilled enough to make full use of them.
Something else I want to point out, this game is pretty well balanced for a rouge-like...
Oh God... another pixel art game. Well this one doesn't look bad. The art is pretty simple not much to say. Animations are nice and simple, and yeah... that's really it.
This games soundtrack is fantastic. From the ambience to the intense boss music. It's all really well done and helps set the mood for the tone of the level.
Yup! Believe it or not this game has a story, more of lore actually, but whatever. I won't dwell on it much, but it's quite interesting reading the characters backgrounds and the background on the entire game really!
This game is hard. REMEMBER THAT, if you are faint at heart do not pick this up as it is not fair, and it will punish you. But that said, it is VERY fun and very rewarding. Anyone looking for an addictive shooter, look no further!
