  1. While Larva Mortus won’t satisfy your shooter itch if you’re a die hard fan of 3D shooters, if you enjoy a good dungeon romp, and don’t mind the highly detailed 2D graphics, it’s definitely worth the price.
  2. Just a pretty good indie adventure: the difficulty and pacing are absolutely spot-on, even if the visuals lack the ostentatious fireworks we're used to these days. [June 2009, p.99]
  3. Overall the game is fun and is lacking in several areas, but in the end not enough to say this game is not worth buying for action gaming fans it is, but just do not expect too much and you should have plenty of fun.
  4. Blandly fun for a bit. [Aug 2009, p.73]

    This is a rogue like horror themed top down rpg. you can do as many side missions as you want, and there is no level cap. This is a great time killer, that is very cheap.

    once more this is a rogue like, so there are unlimited randomly generated levels, and the game gets harder as you level up. Lots of nice loot.

    Great game for the price.

    It is a solid top down shooter for the price.
    Good example of how game play can be good no matter the graphics.
    Its a fun casual game, with
    different guns and character progression.
    Usually it's on bundles around, so it's a plus for the bundle

    I enjoyed this game immensely. Fairly short but more than worth the price (75% discount on steam). It was very obviously made by an indie studio and it shows in the minor grammatical errors (which do lend it some charm). There are lots of different types of weapons, each having their strengths & weaknesses. You can only carry a limited amount of ammo which means you'll be using all of the weapons instead of just the most powerful one. Has minor RPG elements. Graphics are good and quite charming. The dungeons are randomized, but the game probably doesn't have much replayability. I heartily recommend this game. Full Review »
