REMEDIUM: Sentinels Reviews
A by-the-numbers fast-paced auto-shooter on PS4
A budget-minded take on Vampire Survivors, it has issues as things get crowded, but it’s an alternative if you don’t mind some flaws
"REMEDIUM: Sentinels" is a delightful and addictive autoshooter, striking the perfect balance between simplicity and strategy.
A fun and cheap (only about 5 bucks) little top-down indie bullet heaven roguelike bonanza, but mainly because this formula doesn't need anything fancy to work and be fun. But with even consoles having far better alternatives already, I can only recommend this one to hardcore fans of the genre who already grinded the hell out of Vampire Survivors, Army of Ruin and so on.
All in all, I had fun with this game. The first hours are quite addictive and you actually want to constantly try to improve your previous round. Collecting in-game scrap is too slow and you are only really rewarded when you manage to complete a level. So if you get stuck at a certain point, you will hang around in the same boat for quite a while, so that at some point you will start to lose motivation. However, the challenge is not so great that it becomes demotivating and you don't get any further. In addition, after about 5 hours you have seen the gameplay mechanics, however simplistic they may be. It is therefore a wonder that people manage to keep you busy for such a long time with just one button in terms of basic control.
