General Information

Available on:Wii UDec 16, 2015

Developer: CHUDCHUD Industries

Genre: Adventure

Temple of Yog is the game of human sacrifice. Players select sacrificial tributes from a primitive village and send them into an ancient temple. These tributes fight and conquer their way through procedural dungeons for glory, their inevitable death rewarding the village with prestige and progress. Tributes shift between the realms of Light and Shadow on the TV and the Wii U GamePad. A second display mode allows players to use the GamePad as a crystal ball into the other realm, leaving the tribute on the primary screen at all times. Along the way, a tribute's sacrifice increases in rank, going from "Weak" and "Meager" all the way to "Worthy". Defeating the guardian of each realm, along with providing a worthy sacrifice, will advance the village from a primitive culture all the way to a futuristic acropolis.

Temple Of Yog puts it all out there early, without any real feeling of getting more powerful other than an ability to take more hits.

Temple of Yog can provide a satisfying, arcade-like rush for points and glory, and its use of the GamePad is cleverly implemented. It's certainly worth a look for score attackers and has promise of becoming something even more, but those looking for a deeper experience in their dungeon diving might want to approach with caution (or patience) before deciding to sacrifice their money.

While it doesn't fulfill its initial promise, Temple of Yog is still a unique rogue-like that you can't find on any other console. If you're a Wii U owner, you owe it to yourself to check out one of the few games that actually takes advantage of the GamePad.

It's true that Temple of Yog is ultimately relatively cheap, at about the price of a Jalapeño & Cheese Whataburger combo. But who wants cheap things when they are of low quality? If Temple of Yog had reached the potential it unfortunately fell short of, I would have had no problem dropping twice the money on it. When more content for the game releases, I will certainly give it a spin and see how it has improved. For now, it is what it is, and I would only recommend it to bored Wii U owners with spare money to burn.
