    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.

    RAD is a post apocalyptic roguelike, with an unique power up system that has the same pro and cons.

    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.

    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 game. Challenging, freaky enemies; Lots to explore in the story and world. Use a controller!

    It has a lovely 80's retro visual style and breakup of environments. The controls however feel restrictive and sluggish... There not terrible just doesn't feel great.
    The biggest letdown of this game is the mutation system. Basically level gated ability upgrades.. but they don't mix or match in any dynamic way so runs very quickly feel the same. The game would have been better suited for a linear experience than watering down what little it has or adding way more interesting mutations.
