Eldritch - Review Roundup

by Couchpotato, 2013-11-13 03:37:34

I managed to roundup a few more reviews for the released rougelike Eldritch.

Front Towards Gamer - 9.5/10

Eldritch feels like a game after my heart. I’ve never played a stealth action game that has the same replayability, a trait brought out my its roguelike nature. Its eerily interesting world and the creatures that inhabit it evoke a sense of discomfort and eminent threat. Well-designed stages with impressive random generation help to alleviate the frustration of failure. In a time where every genre seems to be getting the “roguelike” treatment, Eldritch has made an excellent case for its fusion with the stealth action genre.

Greenlit Gaming - 7/10

The Verdict: Eldritch is an enjoyable experience that is unique in so many different ways. If you are comfortable with roguelike adventure games then this is the game for you. A great deal of thought and effort went into Eldritch so its easy for me to say its worth the fifteen dollar price tag.

Quarter To Three - 4/5

Eldritch, by Minor Key Games, is a first-person roguelike set in a blocky Lovecraftian fantasy. It’s unforgiving of mistakes, and it’s so dang adorable, you’ll want to hug every deadly enemy you see. Check out that Deep One in the above image. He’s so lovable! He hops and makes a goofy “glorp” noise when he chases you down and kills you. Awwww. Next thing you know, you’re looking at the death screen, getting ready to resurrect back in the mysterious library.
