    Vaporum can be a little on the difficult side at times, the fun and enjoyment present in the decent amount of exploration, puzzles and items at your disposal makes you forget about the high difficulty and quickly immerses you into the game.

The dungeon crawler genre fits this games style, is to defeat enemies while progressing and obtaining loot along the way. There’s a ton of variety present in the enemies you face and the loot or items you can collect along your adventure. Defeating enemies feels rewarding and add in the intricate level of puzzles, means the gameplay stays interesting enough throughout your experience. The presentation in the audio and visuals is full of atmosphere and really give the game the feel that you'd expect in this story. Vaporum doesn’t get much wrong and this makes the game a decent addition to your Xbox One library. If you’re a fan of this genre of games, then I’m sure you’ll find something here that satisfies. If you're not a fan of the genre you may find yourself a little let down simply not being a fan. At the end of the day I think most people will either enjoy Vaporum, while it's not the best dungeon crawler out there it does much more right, than it does wrong. Expand

    Imperfect controls and other minor annoyances aside, Vaporum is a very enjoyable dungeon-crawler. Its insistence on tile-based movement results in battles that are decided by a rather peculiar dance. Sometimes it takes quite a few steps just to create an opening in the enemy's defences. To add to this, every decision, no matter how slight, carries weight. An action as simple as turning around can leave the player in a difficult position. It's almost as if one has to adopt a sixth sense, just to keep track of where enemies are going. Provided you give your best effort, then you are sure to be rewarded. Altogether, this is a very impressive effort that's well worth anyone's time.

    While Vaporum does post some entertaining puzzles, they quickly become more of a change of pace tactic than actually something worthwhile. This sad reality combined with the previous disappointments and letdowns means that in all good conscious, I cannot recommend purchasing this game for $24.99 when you can get better dungeon crawlers for less money. When your game thrives on a quality story and entertaining gameplay mechanics, and both of those areas become lackluster and suffer, thus hindering the enjoyment, then it's time to move on. Vaporum may be set in a steampunk environment, but the game itself ran out of steam.

    If you are users who like the role, it's a good idea to give Vaporum a chance, and enjoy all the secrets that the incredible story behind a simple tower has for us.
