Aug 12, 2021I was hoping for more from Zengeon. “Chinese Diablo” or “Hades but Asian” are keywords that should have translated into one of my favourite games of the year. Unfortunately, while the effort on the part of the developers is clear for all to see, and the aesthetics are there, Zengeon otherwise struggles to meet the highs of its peers. It is a perfectly workable game, and I could easily see a better-resourced sequel from this team delivering, but as it stands, this is a touch too shallow and mundane for its own good.
Aug 18, 2021I know I’m coming off as overly pessimistic, and I apologize for that, but Zengeon fails when executed in almost every possible way. The variety of playable characters is neat, and the co-op feature is nice, but I can’t see myself recommending this. After playing, players will swiftly notice the inept synergy between the combat mechanics alongside the mangled performance and atrocious enemy frequency. There are plenty of other roguelikes out there, and I promise that any one of those is likely better worth your time than Zengeon.

However, once you start playing the veneer of polish quickly chips away and things trend more towards generic and perhaps almost unfinished. After selecting your character you’ll battle enemies and grab items around the procedurally-generated maps on each level but after the game’s opener showing so much attitude the gameplay itself is comparatively bland and the controls a bit on the stilted side, never really allowing you to get into an exciting flow, more often just sticking to what works. I suppose if the art and overall style of game appeal to you it may be worth a look, just within this action-oriented roguelike/RPG space on Switch there are simply better options by a fair margin, making it tough to recommend.
