    While it doesn't totally reinvent the twin-stick shooter, it has all but perfected it and is worth every penny.

    While the Rogue like genre may be getting a little crowded, there's certainly room for the likes of Enter the Gungeon. It ticks all the boxes, with gameplay that beckons you to come back for one more run, a great art style and presentation, and seemingly something new discover or unlock on every playthrough.

    Enter the Gungeon is a wonderful, demanding yet rewarding, roguelike twin-stick shooter where the visuals marry perfectly with the gameplay to deliver one of the most addictive experiences in recent memory. Fans of Binding of Isaac, Spelunky et al sit up and take notice, Enter the Gungeon rolls with the punches and delivers an experience worth of sitting alongside these greats.

    Explosive, sometimes even crazy, funny and joyful roguelike action – that is Enter the Gungeon. To combine frenzied top-down shooter with harsh difficulty and gigantic loot was a brilliant idea. Equally high is the technical part of the game.

    Both compelling and infuriatingly difficult, Enter the Gungeon offers hours of frantic bullet hell fun.

    Most of the content, including music, items, and enemies, is directly transferred from the world of Enter The Gungeon, making the product even more secondary than it previously seemed. On PC, Exit the Gungeon has already experienced several patches, after which it became more playable, but it is still noticeable that this is a quickly molded game, released in the hope of hype around the first one and high sales.

Yes, level 1 can be a slog without a good weapon for a reward, yet the replayability, rock-solid dual-stick gameplay, and crazy amount of variety make me come back over and over again. A brilliant game that I'll return to for years to come. Expand

The design, aesthetic, and execution are great and you will keep you coming back for more after each death--the replay value is there, both from the gameplay and the endgame content. It feels like beating the game is just the beginning.

    The combat is tight and the loot system is satisfying. The reward comes from practice--I've put 50 hours into the game and still haven't beat it, but I know I'm improving and to me that's fun.

    I'm impressed by how polished this game is, and it's definitely a $15 well spent!

    Mostly a response to grayback's review who seem to either misinformed or terrible at the game.

    Having played 21 hours in the first 2 days of release, most of the guns are either directly more powerful than the starting weapons, or are more difficult to use. In fact, the starting weapons are one of the only things I find boring about the game. Getting new weapons is always exciting.

    Equipping your character is rarely something you get to choose, there's so many items that you're at the mercy of RNG.

    I find all the bosses to be of roughly the same difficulty level that I've encountered thus far and have been frustrated with exactly 0 of them. Everything they do is in a pattern you can predict, anticipate and dodge. If you screw up, it's on you. The game has not once felt like it cheated me. To top this off, there's an incredible variety in the enemies, it's simply spread out amongst the levels. I suspect greyback never made it past the first to 2nd level.

    This seems to be a case of someone who's bad at the game blaming the game rather than himself. I've played my share of games that feel like they screw you over, this isn't one of them. The balance is great, the variety is great, the art is great. The only thing that I would point to as being shy of excellent is the soundtrack.

    I would urge anyone reading to check steam reviews where the general consensus is "overwhelmingly positive".

Lots of unlockables, including new characters. A lot of challenges and an addictive approach to repeating attempts to achieve another success. A lot of humor and references to other games, movies, etc. It looks very nice graphically, the animations are smooth, although some may not like the pixel style. The music is what it should be - pleasant, but it does not divert attention from the game. Expand

La música se elige apropiadamente y los efectosEste juego es todo lo que podrías querer en un juego Rouge-Like. El estilo de arte es genial. La música se elige apropiadamente y los efectos de sonido son intensos. Es fácil de recoger y entrar, y desafiante y divertido de dominar.

    El juego hace un gran trabajo de ser desafiante sin sentirse imposible. Los controles son ajustados y te sientes ágil.

    Realmente me encanta este juego, tiene un cierto encanto que otros juegos de este tipo carecen. Me encanta la inclusión de la cooperativa local, pero mi mayor queja no es un multijugador en línea. Si bien sin duda una tarea desalentadora para el ingeniero de un desarrollador indy, sería absolutamente 100% vale la pena.

    It is not perfect but is definitely a solid gameplay that leaves you hoping the developers had done more out of their ideas.

    How a bullet-hell based game can be slow and boring? That's how.
    Как игра основанная на механике Буллетхелла может быть медленной и скучной?
