While faithful to the genre, Ember Knights make some solid creative decisions and implement quality-of-life fixes that many roguelikes desperately need, and opens the genre up to a multiplayer experience. Unafraid to make players feel powerful while still presenting a real challenge, Ember Knights is a game that feels like it was designed to have fun, favoring fun builds and creative interactions with the world over any artificial difficulty, providing a genuine challenge that’s no less fun for players alone or with a group of friends.

Though it's not innovative, Ember Knights impressively does the basic of the genre well. The big amount of elements to add variation to the combat allow players to elaborate various combat strategies and allows the game to avoid being too repetitive. However, this [repetitive] feeling still persists due to the small variety of rooms in each world and the difficulty peak at the end of the game. Despite that, Ember Knights delivers a really fun and challenging adventure, making it a recommendation for those looking for a new roguelite option.

Ember Knights is an addictive blast that is just a good time. Here’s hoping that there is the drive from the developers to make expansions or updates that add bonus content because this is a game that deserves to have its flame burn on for a while. But as it is, the game is still amazing and perfect for a night with friends to just grind away at some enemies and bosses.
