8 / 10.0 - FAR: Lone Sails
May 17, 2018

FAR: Lone Sails manages to be memorable in a way that a lot of indie games fail to be. What it lacks in length and varied gameplay, it makes up for with its spellbinding presentation.

Despite a relatively standard roguelike dungeon crawler framework, Hellmut's mutation swapping madness gives this twin-stick shooter a breath of originality and satisfying destruction that separates it from the competition.
