Gods Will Fall on Xbox is one of the best games that you can play. With its beautiful combination of random generation and concrete level design, it sets the bar high for any roguelikes that come after.

An inventive Souls-meets-roguelike that frustrates and delights in equal measure.

Gods Will Fall knows how to mix roguelike concepts in his own way with challenging and fun combat. Small flaws in control will cloud the bottom line, but it will delight everyone who is drawn to his particular proposition. Very honest with its price, too.

Gods Will Fall is a well-focused action-oriented dungeon-crawling soulslike with procedural generation. Only the procedural generation is on the difficulty, allowing for developers Clever Beans to have handcrafted each dungeon in a stunning hand-brushed art style and have each playthrough feel that bit different, as the increased difficulty of a particular dungeon brings new creatures, paths, and opportunities. While not perfect, some things like the rather barren overworld as well as some bugs standing out, the character development, emergent storytelling and tight combat does more than enough to let this stand out.

Gods Will Fall is a unique and challenging dungeon crawler that cleverly combines a handful of inventive gameplay mechanics, resulting in constantly tense and thrilling runs through some seriously tough death chambers and boss battles. This is a pretty brutal and unforgiving game – one some players are sure to bounce hard off – but stick with it until it clicks, explore, experiment, forge ahead through frustration and you'll be rewarded with one of the most addictive and original roguelikes we've played in quite some time.

The more I played Gods Will Fall, the more I understand its intricate design. It's a good game that at the very heart depends on dungeon design and bosses to make it fun. It exceeds in the latter and does a good job with the design. The story is meaningful, the gameplay design of the action is simplified, and while it does have its pain points here and there, it delivers a fun and purposeful experience.

Gods Will Fall does a lot of things right, so if you’re looking for a game that has high replayability and offers success through personal growth rather than arbitrary difficulty, then look no further. The lead developer at Clever Beans mentioned that their inspiration when creating this game was Demon’s Souls and I’d say they did an excellent job creating an indie version of their muse.

Gods Will Fall proved to be a game I wish I played sooner. While it fails to realise its full potential, it takes you on an unforgettable journey as you guide unsuspecting heroes against perilous odds. With satisfying combat, picturesque landscapes, and epic boss battles, Gods Will Fall is a gem of a dungeon crawler and one you won’t want to miss.

A beautifully crafted combination of RPG and rogue-like that contrasts with souls-like difficulty.
