    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 offers a different post apocalyptic experience, and it's colorful, cell-shade visuals mixed with great 80s electronic music are things that make it unique when compared to titles like Fallout or Wasteland. On the negatives side, you have to deal with its unbalanced difficulty and repetitive gameplay; but in general, you'll probably have a good time with Rad.

    RAD's mix of randomized abilities, enemy variation and busy landscapes make for a middling rogue-like. These elements combined with difficulty that's too often mitigated with ranged attacks keep RAD from being truly radical, but there's definitely fun to be had.

    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.
