    Tunche managed to evaluate all the proposals he proposed. He is as challenging as any roguelike and keeps up the pace of the fight as a beat ‘em up. With many endearing characters, a story in the middle of the Amazon rainforest and several possibilities to play, it's a game that should be on everyone's list.

    Tunche is a refreshing take on an established genre. The incredible aesthetics will immediately make this one stand out amongst its peers but its faithful implementation of mechanics hinders the experience. Whilst the rogue-lite features put a fun twist on every run, the repetitive combat can quickly become tiresome. Although there are a few issues, it’s certainly an interesting game that shines when playing with others.

    Tunche looks and sounds good, plays neatly and consistently and is fun for couch co-op. However, it takes its punchy ideas and sneaks off into a dark, dirty alley where people just won’t want to go and find it. It is fun if you’re willing to get in there and get stuck in, but you’ll need to step over the broken glass of tiny screen text, try not to touch the wet-stained walls of repetitive, roguelite early encounters, and apologetically deny having any spare change to the drugged up yuppie of verbose exposition. In conclusion, if you are looking for a fight, mate, let us point you in the direction of Tunche.

    Tunche looks great on paper, even better in motion, but under your thumbs – it hurts like hell. A game so unfairly hard, tries its best to keep you in for longer, while overstaying its welcome. There is a quality here and it looks like a game made out of passion and love. Yet a few life-saving tweaks would not just save the game from a low score, but also your nerves after playing it for more than 30 minutes.

    First peruvian game that shows the perspective of our culture from native developers. Even if you don´t like the genre, give it a try!

    With its attractively-animated characters and environments, Tunche absolutely doesn’t look like any other beat-em-up on the system. Throw inWith its attractively-animated characters and environments, Tunche absolutely doesn’t look like any other beat-em-up on the system. Throw in the fact that a roguelike spirit beats in its heart and it doesn’t quite play like any other as well, and depending on your perspective that may be a good or a bad thing. For anyone not familiar with roguelikes, what that means is that out of the gate your character’s attacks won’t be quite as varied as you’re used to and certainly not as powerful, leading to some inevitable grinding to be done on your way to success. The positive is that once you’ve locked into your favorite character you can somewhat cater the way they play to your own preferences. One complaint is that you can’t really try out a given character’s style without taking them on a run and that their skill progression, since their styles vary, also doesn’t carry over… meaning if you like to experiment it’s going to be a tough per-character grind to discover what works for you. That said, for the most part the action is quick, your enemies don’t generally fit into the traditional generic molds so much of the experience feels fresh, and the ability to have some friends play along is welcome since you can usually use some help.

    Amazing Art-style, cute characters, challenging boss fights but a tedious progression and lack of replayability. The game is fun, but the funAmazing Art-style, cute characters, challenging boss fights but a tedious progression and lack of replayability. The game is fun, but the fun ends quickly unless you really like grinding. Our score for Tunche on PC is 6.3 and a round 7 on Switch since i found this game to be a great companion to play on the go.
