    There’s just so much that Snack World does right for a dungeon crawler that even without having any sort of serious story it manages to be one of the best in the genre with the sheer fun variety it offers. Anyone looking for a brand new adventuring title should give Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold their time as it’s surprisingly fantastic.

    Snack World: Dungeon Explorers is a game made with undoubted craft, full of humor and ready to pinch the strings of the collector hidden in each of us. The simple but not trivial action and the large number of secondary missions are, however, tormented by a rhythm that tends to weary in the long run and a lively, but technically only discreet, technical component. Remaining in the culinary sphere, Snake World won't be a chef's bite to eat, but if you're hungry you can tastefully fulfill it.

    What Snackworld: The Dungeon Crawl - Gold lacks in gameplay depth, it makes up for with it's great sense of humour and vibrant style.

    Charming loot and monster hunt with a high grind factor and unfortunately without any splitscreen option.

    Snack World works as a tasty, but not entirely satisfying, appetizer, with too much filler and some strange balancing choices.

    There is no shortcut to boss doors, nor an opportunity to save outside them--you must traverse the preceding dungeon in its entirety again, which begins to disrupt and destroy the decent dungeon-crawling. As a result, despite the fact Snack World is initially most exciting when you're exploring the depths of its dungeons, that excitement is soon painfully wrenched into tedium. This phenomenon seems to permeate Snack World in its entirety: although it's exciting and captivating early on, each of its constituents become tedious before long, and all of its strengths are weathered away by repetition and a sense of feeling incomplete.

    I’m giving this game a 10 for 1 simple reason...it’s an awesome dungeon crawler with lots of gear etc. Idk wtf Snack World is, but I assumeI’m giving this game a 10 for 1 simple reason...it’s an awesome dungeon crawler with lots of gear etc. Idk wtf Snack World is, but I assume it’s a show or something because there seems to be certain inside jokes I’m no part of littered throughout the dialog etc. It’s an amazing isometric RPG with outstanding mechanics all round. From the movement to the battles and everything in between. It’s a surprisingly DEEP n rich game world and this definitely surprised me as I wasn’t expecting much but wanted a fun and well made crawler (run around maps fighting n looting etc.) it’s outstanding and I’m a 38 y/o hardcore gamer with a taste for old school simplicity and difficulty Expand

    Very fun in small burst. Nothing about it is fantadtic, nothing is terrible. O.k. I lied, the camera is terrible some of the time. If youVery fun in small burst. Nothing about it is fantadtic, nothing is terrible. O.k. I lied, the camera is terrible some of the time. If you want a super entertaining grindfest of an action rpg dungeon crawler with instanced zones and a mediocre hub world with a large dose of pre-teen level humor, this is a safe bet. Be warned, the game is NOT kid safe unless your kids are allowed to rub feces on themselves, say @$$ and Goddamit that is. The game is actually a 7/10 but since metacritic allows people to just do review bombs, this might negate some of the idiots. Expand

    After spending hours on Fantasy Life I had high hopes of this Switch port as Level-5 are known for their GOD Tier RPGs. The game is decent butAfter spending hours on Fantasy Life I had high hopes of this Switch port as Level-5 are known for their GOD Tier RPGs. The game is decent but there are a lot of underlying problems that make it less than perfect and probably Level-5's worst:

    - The camera is really bad combined with the dungeon's design it makes it extremely obnoxious to explore.
    - Snacks are pretty much useless since they don't level up and are basically dumb AI that cost you treasure chests (eg. make you use potions, die because they are dumb as f***, etc.)

    Overall the game is nice, but could have been better. Undeserving of the price tag of $50 I guess. Will recommend to get it on sale.
