Zengeon is an anime-infused action RPG rogue-lite with a selection of characters with unique playstyles. Slaughter your way through demonic hordes and colossal bosses with hundreds of combination and skill possibilities! For centuries, the Celestial Academy has protected a seal within the Blessed Land, keeping the Dark Emptiness from entering this realm. But... everything must eventually come to an end. During the Lunar Eclipse, a great power tore through the seal’s enchantments, unleashing the Dark Emptiness upon the world. Now, the Demon God makes his return... Choose from six playable characters, each with their own attacks, skills, and items. It is up to you, as one of the students of the Celestial Academy, to repel the Dark Emptiness and repair the seal in the Blessed Land! FEATURES - Six unique characters to choose from - Each with their own skills, abilities, and vastly differing play styles. - No two playthroughs are the same - Enjoy endless replayability with an ever-changing map layout and enemy placement. Adapt your strategy to the situation, combined hundreds of skills, and battle your way to the warp points. - Dynamically build your characters on the fly - Make tough decisions as you determine between uniquely generated power-ups and create a build that is perfect for your playstyle, all in-game. - Play with up to three friends – Team up with your friends and take down the infernal hordes together. The more players that join your game, the harder Zengeon gets with automatic difficulty scaling.

I 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.

A good game, fast and dynamic at its base, but with some technical problems that hinder it excessively.

I 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.

For those who love action roguelikes and can play online with friends, Zengeon might even be interesting. However, overall the game is too shallow to be worth it. Switch already has several other more interesting examples of the genre.
