Vampire Survivors has been an early access sensation, and its full release would be well-worth your time even if it wasn't the price of a large latte.

It may look extremely basic, but if you give Vampire Survivors' clever one-stick shooter idea a chance to sink its teeth into you it might not let go for a while.

It's ugly as hell, and initially quite slow, but Vampire Survivors is the most compelling dual-stick shooter for years, even if it doesn't actually use dual sticks.

Despite these early console setbacks, Vampire Survivors has quickly become one of my favorite games of all time. Consider this me grabbing the sides of your head and shouting, "Play Vampire Survivors, you fool!

There's a sweet spot in the middle of each run where you're powerful, but only just powerful enough to barely survive each new wave. In the final third of each run, though, things start to feel perplexingly staid.

The full release of this still splendid arcade splat'em up adds variety, depth, and an endgame you may or may not feel compelled to conquer.

Don't judge a book by its cover: Vampire Survivors has a simple gameplay loop, but strong enough to keep you coming back, and wanting more. Thirty minutes is the perfect lenght to make you think "maybe I can squeeze in another run", and before you've realized it the game has burned through the hours as if they were matchsticks.

Overall, this DLC takes everything that made the base game of Vampire Survivors such a surprise success story and gives you more of the same, but with a more involved map and a theme to bring the whole thing together. If you're one of the many who has been enthralled with the allure of Vampire Survivors, you're going to appreciate the additional content that poncle has thrown in here, and with a price point set at less than $2.00, there's very little reason for any fan to stay away.

Someone, please send help. I can't stop playing Vampire Survivors, and I'm worried it might end up ruining my life. This is pure and unadulterated gameplay that will suck away hours of your life, but you'll be loving every bit of it.

Vampire Survivors initially feels like a nice bite-sized adventure, something to dip into now and then for the joy of orchestrating a little mayhem as the heart of bullet hell rather than its recipient.

Vampire Survivors is one of those simple games that could become extremely addictive at first. that being said, ample balancing issues, issues regarding enemy's spawning mechanic and some technical problems make the game repetitive after a while.

Vampire Survivors is one of the most addictive games I've played since Tetris! Apologies to my partner, who has hardly seen me for a few months now. Just one more game, I promise…

An addictive well-oiled machine, Vampire Survivor is an engaging box filled with secrets and surprises so easily played with infinite replayability. A worthy Early Access graduate.

We need small games as much as we need big games and I personally don't remember playing such a solid small game for a long time.

It’s a straightforward, simple, arcade-style game that rewards your continued engagement not with cynical “player retention” systems designed to keep you grinding and/or paying up for microtransactions — a noteworthy point, particularly considering poncle’s background in making online casino and slot machine games — but with additional ways to have fun. It’s considerately designed, it’s highly entertaining, and it’s absolutely brilliant.
