    Moonlighter is an overall brilliant sum of its parts with the kind of things roguelike fans, action RPG fans or even lifestyle sim fans can find engaging. It's an addicting piece of grinding RPG gaming that comes highly recommended on any platform you choose.

    The harmony that Moonlighter transmits is great. We can highlight its impeccable animation, its outstanding soundtrack and its artistic style that will take us to an immersive world, although the story is rather short.

    In spite of an ending that arrives too soon, Moonlighter manages to offer an engaging balance of commerce and action up to the very end.

    Even if it doesn't really shine in any particular aspect, Moonlighter is one of the best hybrid pixelated RPGs you can find on Nintendo Switch.

    Moonlighter is a game that has you experience the life of a hero and a shopkeeper at the same time. You fight enemies to obtain items at a dungeon, and go on to sell these at your shop, allowing you to buy better armor. The gorgeous graphics enhance the experience and the gameplay loop is great. The game could have offered more to do and the story is a bit simple, but it’s an enjoyable ride nonetheless.

    Moonlighter is a fun, unique mashup of 2D dungeon crawler meets small business simulator.
  7. 70
    Moonlighter is a cute -- if not overly repetitive -- dungeon crawler that puts a unique and much-needed spin on roguelikes.

It's such an interesting, novel idea to run your own shop after you explore the dungeon. The gameplay loop is so well-designed and addictive. I'm always saying "just one more run through this dungeon and then bed". Expand

    I absolutely adored moonlighter I found the game simple yet compelling. I find myself easily lost in most dungeon crawling rpgs however for meI absolutely adored moonlighter I found the game simple yet compelling. I find myself easily lost in most dungeon crawling rpgs however for me moonlight was easy to just pick up and play for a few hours. Everything else has already been said by other reviews. That being said the only complaint I have is that the controls were a bit janky then again this was probably the fault of my switch and not the game.
    All in all moonlighter is an incredulously fun rpg with simple mechanics, captivating lore and an addictive shop system. I highly recommend this game and it’s dlc

    Great game, with great objectives. However the games needs some patching/optimizing, as the game seems to suffer from some insane frame drops.

    Good enough. But...
    Selling items is not so important part when the late part of the game, since every items are high price enough.

    Don't buy this game untile they fix the usability issues. Impossible to use the pendant in the dungeon. I die over and over with max inventoryDon't buy this game untile they fix the usability issues. Impossible to use the pendant in the dungeon. I die over and over with max inventory without being able to get out. Game doesn't tell you ANYTHING. Worst UI experience in a game ever. Trash it and don't look back. Expand
