Critic Reviews for The Land Beneath Us

The Land Beneath Us looks like a classic turn-based roguelite with pleasing pixel art and very tiny levels full of dangers, in which every move must be carefully weighted. The weapon equipment system, however, grants a great variety of scenarios, making our hero sometimes very powerful only when moving upward, sometimes stronger in lateral movements, forcing us to adjust our strategy according to his position and the direction in which it would be most appropriate to engage enemies. A good variety of monsters, bosses and power-ups should keep roguelite lovers entertained for quite a while.

If you enjoy turn-based gameplay and get a kick out of dodging attacks and outmanoeuvring enemies, The Land Beneath Us might be worth a try. Its innovative design, with a four-weapon system mapped to directional keys and Helldiver-esque command combinations, is both creative and quite engaging. Unfortunately, the levels are rather monotonous, with few surprises throughout the game, and the overall content is relatively sparse.

The depth of this modest game that not many people will probably know, ensures that The Land Beneath Us will take many hours to complete. The Relics, the weapons, the upgrades that you can then make on both, the perma-upgrades in the Lab that you can purchase and the versatility of the gameplay and platforms on which you play ensure that you can have a lot of fun with this game . After about 5 hours of playing I was only through 4 levels and then I was only halfway through. After that it becomes a bit more challenging and you will have to spend many hours again. The small details, including the chips, the quests that you can complete separately, the teleporting and the ability to even skip turns, also make the game feel very versatile.
