I'm not even sure where to begin, I love the DROD series so much and this is one of my favorite entries. It's a masterpiece! As an indie game dev DROD has been a huge inspiration to me. It features some of the absolute best level design and play mechanics out there.

This game is truly a hidden gem and deserves way more attention than it has gotten over the years. On the surface, it may not look like much -the graphics are a bit cheesey, same with the dialogue -but rest assured this game is awesome and amazing where it really matters: the gameplay.

If you like puzzle games, chess games, critical thinking, tricky levels, and outside of the box thinking then you will most likely love this game. Yes, it can be frustrating at times, but usually if you stop and take a step back and change your approach you can usually find the solution.

Drod is turn based but rarely feels slow. When you move, everything else moves. This allows you to stop and think when you need to or rush through a level if you want to and that really helps the flow of the game. The puzzle design here changes wildly which really helps keep it a fresh experience from start to finish. The introduction of one new element dramatically changes the way some levels need to be played. Sometimes there will be the occasional puzzle that feels tedious but in my opinion that's true of most all puzzle games. No others have managed to be as consistently fun to me as the Drod games.

DROD: Gunthro and the Epic Blunder is a fantastic mix of what made the first three DROD games so great. It doesn't take long to start getting tricky. If you're new to the series you may have a bit harder time adjusting and knowing what to do, but DROD is one of those games that even when you adapt to it; it's not going to be easy. It's going to throw you curve balls and it's going to challenge you which makes it all the more a truly satisfying experience.

If you are totally new to the series, I would strongly suggest taking the time to fully customize the controls to your comfort. I personally prefer to use the desktop/number pad settings and the arrow keys as my clockwise/counter clockwise swing. This allows me to eat nachos and other power-up brain foods with my left hand while controlling the entire game with my right hand -which means DROD often earns the rare-but-highly-coveted title as my go-to lunch time game!

I could sing praises of this game and this series all day, but I've probably rambled enough about it. Hopefully you love it as much as the rest of us DROD fans do!
