Paper Cut Mansion is a fun, if simplified, roguelite that benefits from a charming art style. The game opens with a warning that the adventure is themed around horror but it’s really hard to be scared of violent paper cutouts. Getting around each floor of the house can be a little disorienting because there is no map or landmarks to get your bearings. That confusion wears away the longer you play, however. There are a lot of familiar modular elements that become more noticeable with each playthrough. With its procedurally generated level design, a staggering number of endings, and creative artistic spark, Paper Cut Mansion is fun and can be enjoyed in short bursts.

Paper Cut Mansion offers some interesting dimension-hopping gameplay, enjoyable puzzles, and unique cardboard visuals that make it standout from similar titles in the genre. However, it's ultimately let down by its slow pacing and repetition of content.

There is a good game in Paper Cut Mansion, but it would need at least a year polishing and refining what's here to make it worthwhile. As it is, the interesting concept and excellent art direction can't make up for shallow gameplay and clunky mechanics. Nothing in this game is terrible, but there are far better roguelites out there to spend your time and money on.

Paper Cut Mansion is a strange, sometimes spooky but mostly unique take on the tried-and-true adventure roguelike genre.

Quite a unique light scary game, where players can enjoy an interesting graphic style, exciting action, fun puzzle and revealing the story and mystery of the house.

Go ahead and take a look, but only if you really like the "cut of Paper Cut Mansion's jib"

Paper Cut Mansion is a quirky and fun little indie to play when you have an hour or two kicking about and you don’t want to exhaust your brain with anything too taxing. While it has a lot of positives going for it, like cute little puzzles, peculiar characters and buckets of charm, it fails to deliver any substance to go with it. The puzzles are not hard, the story isn’t captivating, and the tedious repetition makes it somewhat of a chore to pick up again. For me, it doesn’t maximise that full potential to make me want to come back for more.

If you're longing for any other recent roguelike of your choice, I'd say that at the very least it's worth trying out Paper Cut Mansion and finding out how much the game's flaws weigh on your taste, as its qualities certainly set it apart.

It starts off slow but within minutes you are trapped and the game really pulls you in on so many levels. Even having to start again when you died didn’t feel frustrating. It was just another opportunity to correct your path or not take a certain turn
