Critic Reviews for Eyes in the Dark

Eyes in the Dark doesn’t exactly reinvent roguelites or twin stick shooters so much as it simply takes good parts of those things and ties it up neatly in a darkly humored style, both charming and creepy. The black and white art style, quirky soundtrack, and unique light-vs-dark elements are quite enjoyable. RNG can and will cut your runs short, and I think its permanent upgrade system is a bit too stingy to keep things moving along, but it’s still quite an amusing roguelite romp that will keep you cutting through the darkness on your way to discovering the mysteries of the Bloom family.

Eyes in the Dark: the Curious Case of One Victoria Bloom will call you to explore a darkness to be eradicated with the trusty torch. Victoria Bloom's "visit" to her grandfather's house is a heart-pounding journey and net of a series of limitations it has been confirmed as fun to play and able to amaze, thanks above all to a refined graphic style that certainly does not go unnoticed. In other words, if you are passionate about the genre of reference you could serenely give him a chance.

Eyes in the Dark is ultimately a unique and very distinctive entry in the rogue-lite genre. It certainly won’t resonate with everyone, but it’s well worth a look if you’re in the mood for a charming rogue-lite that looks like it just jumped out of a Tim Burton movie.

Hopefully, later down the line, the developers will add a feature allowing players to resume at a certain checkpoint. Yes, the game is completable but it can take a lot of time. If you are looking for a fun 2D side-scrolling roguelite, then Eyes in the Dark will be right up your alley.
