Critic Reviews for Dead Tomb
It’s certainly a fun game while it lasts. The breeziness of the puzzles and charming but unremarkable soundtrack make it a comfortable experience. I really enjoyed playing Dead Tomb, I’m not sure I’m going to remember the game will stand in my memory quite as much as the history behind it. At least the price for the digital version makes that kind of experience absolutely worth the recommendation.
Sure, you’ll die a lot, there’ll be some funny secrets to discover here and there, and there’s a ton of trial and error, but when the game really isn’t all that frustrating and each solution is one step closer to the ultimate end goal, I found that Dead Tomb quickly became a nice, fun little romp that was worth playing through to the very end.
Dead Tomb isn’t a terrible NES tribute, but it isn’t one of the best out there either. I appreciate the effort put into being faithful to the 8-bit formula and also seeing Acclaim’s name appearing in the credits, as they were a standout brand from my childhood, but the gameplay didn’t live up to the pedigree for me.
