    Full of wit, great gameplay and memorable moments, SuperEpic is simply one of 2019's best indie games.

    SuperEpic: The Entertainment war is an excellent critique of the videogame industry. The title is full of humor, hours of exploration and a great time beating enemies.

    Going into it, players might find the humour in SuperEpic a tad too cutting for their taste, but once a few floors have gone by, the laughs start to seep through in almost every aspect, including the way that Regnantcorp employees seem to constantly sleep at their desks and do no work. The tone of the game breaks up how grueling some of the combat can be when faced with a long corridor full of enemies that are incredibly annoying to fight, making for a much more well-balanced experience that feels more than at home on the Nintendo Switch. While it makes a point of poking fun at the state of the games industry, SuperEpic is also a lot of fun to play.

    A critique of micro purchases has never been as fun as in SuperEpic: The Entertainment War, where we will have to play in a satirical Metroidvania-style game fighting the fascist pigs that control the world.

    Even if SuperEpic isn’t the most coherent game, the whole package still works well. With so many different challenges, puzzles and secrets to discover, it’s a worthy evolution of the Metroidvania formula. Using your smartphone is a clever addition, provided you want to use it, while the exploration and combat feels fluid and responsive to where you’re itching to see what awaits you in the next room.

    SuperEpic is a good game that shines because of its tongue-in-cheek narrative. Gameplay-wise, it has some solid aspects and some flaws, but overall it’s a title we’ve had fun with.

    SuperEpic: The Entertainment War is a respectable action-platformer that offers satisfying combat and an interesting theme. Overall there is a lot to like here, even if things end up good, not great. The raccoon-llama combo helps for sure!
