Vampire Survivors Reviews
While Vampire Survivors isn't even technically out, the latest update has made this Early Access title so fun to play.
Vampire Survivors might look like Steam Early Access shovelware, but its depth and satisfying gameplay loop will keep you coming back for more.
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.
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.
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.
A top-down arcade splat 'em up that's both simple and moreish.
