    Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: Amulet of Chaos is a value-priced game that packs serious quality for its price point. If you’re looking for a challenging tactical RPG that doesn’t take itself too seriously, you’ll probably get plenty of mileage out of this game.

    The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos is a turn-based dungeon crawler released by developed Artefacts Studio and publisher Dear Villagers. As a party of questionable adventures explores the dungeon, they run into a multitude of opportunities for jokes and puns. The Combat is fun, while the animations, voice acting, and music are great, but the humor may not be for everyone.

    Packed with humour, laughs and pop culture references sprinkled on top with some RPG elements. The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk is a very specific game for a very specific audience, but it can easily surprise even the most generic players.

    The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk is a fun romp with creative combat and animations and gameplay that never takes itself too seriously. For players tired of RPGs where the entire fate of the world hangs in the balance, questing through Naheulbeuk with some of the least qualified and most relatable heroes around can be a refreshing change of pace.

    The biggest problem with The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet Of Chaos — aside from it desperately needing a ruthless editor to excise some of the weaker jokes — is that this approach to parodying the tropes of RPGs has been done many times over the years, and often better. The deliberate and sometimes genuinely challenging combat seems at odds with the tone and pace of the game, but The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet Of Chaos can be entertaining for those with a high tolerance for unfiltered humor in indiscriminate quantities.

    The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk is altogether an enjoyable romp that will land with you about as far as you can tolerate cringeworthy humor and a lite XCOM layer set in a Dungeons and Dragons setting. Also, do yourself a favor and mute the Elf. Permanently. The game has it as an available option; it’s like they knew how bad the humor might be. So do it and you’ll thank me later.
  7. 40
    Altogether, this makes Dungeons of Naheulbeuk a real mixed bag. Its slick and well-observed aesthetic is undercut by rote humour and tired cliche, and its combat has great potential smothered by layers of random chance and obfuscation, with the great swell of combatants meaning that you can sit helplessly as a cavalcade of attacks all target and take down a character before you have a chance to act. There’s definitely something here to enjoy if you’re a diehard tactics fan with a keen eye for optimum strategy and luck mitigation, but it feels like a lot of effort for little reward.

    It has everything you may want from a tactical turn-based RPG: from elaborate tactical battle with honest random to completely uniqueIt has everything you may want from a tactical turn-based RPG: from elaborate tactical battle with honest random to completely unique "classes" of playable characters each with their own skills and abilities. Full of razor-sharp satire, amazing voiceover, beautiful graphics, and innumerable little details that will make you smile, this masterpiece is one of the most accomplished games ever. The developers have put a lot of love into their baby. Expand

    No bugs, nice nelevl design, good depth for the fight system, and of course, the legendary Naheulbeuk universe, deveopped 20 years by Pen ofNo bugs, nice nelevl design, good depth for the fight system, and of course, the legendary Naheulbeuk universe, deveopped 20 years by Pen of Chaos.
    Artistic direction is really nice, same for musics and dialogue. The story is hilarious and compelling, the jokes are good, and there are hundreds of small references to loveraft, tolkien, and other famous fantasy/fiction master piece.

    Dont let yourself get scared of by a few bad reviews from people with a toaster for a computer. The game runs fine, and better than the average release this days. The couple of "professional" critic that have review this game to give it average grades are often offended by the humour this game has. You probably know how it is in 2020, people will get offended for no reason.

    Keep in mind that this game is a great work, made by a small team of pasionate nerds and role play gamer over the course of quite a few years. It aint, perfect, but its damn refreshing. Dont hasitate two second to get it.

The dialog is hilarious with pretty decent voice overs. Great writing and characters. Its not a serious game but you will definitely enjoy this RPG. Graphics and animations are very well done and the turned based combat is fairly engaging. Level progression is also a nice touch with lots of customization for you characters. I just wish you could rename them. This is definitely a game you need to try out for the comedy value alone. Expand

The story is really interesting and the dialogues are very funny. I enjoyed all the banters from the characters. The combat is turn based tactical which slow the game quite a bit. Yet there is a lot of small strategies involved. The combat difficulty is high in my book, so I began to enjoy the combat only at easy. Because otherwise, they get very long. A lot of quests and some puzzles, even riddles at times. The music is good. The controller is good for moving and interacting with the world, but it's pretty awkward in combat and the inventory window. Those on PC should use the keyboard mouse in those areas. I give it 82%. Truly fun RPG that lasted around 24 hours (not counting the DLC) Expand

    Solid turn based crpg with an emphasis on combat and nicely voice-acted silly dialogue. Both of which are executed expertly and represent the main selling point of the game.

    The UI on PC could be better but other than that its quite good for an indie crpg.

    The game is rushed, full of bugs that force you to restart it.
    The quality of the environment and (limited) gameplay are typical of a low budget game, while the price is exaggerated. The English translation is amateur, very iffy; way worse than the English of my review. And that also affects judgment a lot, because it's a game full of humor and there's no such humor in English.
