    Rad could and should become one of 2019's greatest sleeper hits.

    RAD conquered us with its mix of hack n slash, rogue-like and charming post-apocalyptic world... and fans of the 80s will appreciate it even more.

    A highly customizable rogue-lite with a charming aesthetic flair, RAD lives up to its name.

    RAD has excellent gameplay and great visuals but is very, very difficult. Fans of extremely hard games will likely get a kick out of it, but people looking to slowly power up in order to make their rogue-lites easier should stay away.

    Although there are many different mutations on offer in RAD, their gameplay impact is often similar. Roguelike veterans will find nothing new here - but it just might be the perfect starting point for genre newbies.

    Rad is a competently made rougelike. However, compered to other games like it, the gameplay is quite monotone and there‘s too little variety regarding the characters. It’s also also quite easy, leaving veterans of the genre feeling bored.

    For a small asking price, Rad will reliably give you a few hours of novelty, as you explore the wasted punk-dystopia and mutate yourself to better clear the land of its inhabitants. Beyond that initial entry point, you will find yourself dogged by an experience that has little to offer in the way of depth or surprises. The core mechanics make for tense, hectic combat, but also encourage you not to engage in it.

    Great games, beautiful graphics, changeable colors, classic rogelike, perfect combination, although it is not AAA, but a boutique
