Tangledeep Review - GWW

Every once in a while a game will come out of nowhere and surprise me with its deep mechanics, addicting gameplay, and unique art style. Tangledeep came as a surprise but it’s a game I couldn’t have been happier that I accidentally stumbled across this. Tangledeep is a  rogue-like RPG with randomly generated levels that are hard to get into due to all the different mechanics the game throws at you. But once you get the hang of its mechanics and its world you will not want to step away from Tangledeep.

After a frustrating couple of hours and multiple failed attempts, I was ready to give up on Tangledeep. I am the type of player that likes action RPGs so I decided to give Tangledeep another try. This time around I took my time studying the menus, took my time studying the characters and was cautious with the decisions I was making. I was taking my time reading the conversations I was having with the NPCs at the beginning of each run. I realized I was playing Tangledeep all wrong. I was trying to play the game more like a slasher than a turn-based RPG roguelike and that’s where I went wrong. Tangledeep requires you to be methodical, it requires you to calculate every move and to think ahead of time. It reminded me of a lot of chess where every move counts. The more I progressed the more confident I grew where now I knew how to take care of business when the going got hard.


Tangledeep is a frustrating yet rewarding experience that I cannot recommend enough for people that want a deep RPG roguelike game. Once you get past the steep learning curve you will find one of the best RPG games I have played in quite some time and this is a game that no RPG fan should sleep on. Starring Tangleep may seem like a daunting task but it’s a task that if you start it will be hard to put down.
