After playing Excubitor I’ve attempted to write this review numerous times. And if I’m going to be totally honest, it’s taken several full attempts to come up with something to say, either positive or negative. But the issue is that Excubitor is neither a wholly positive nor a wholly negative experience. Excubitor is simply an average game. It is the most average game that I have played in a long time.

The Steam community greenlit Excubitor—and it's apparent why. It's a fun and challenging tower defense game with a twist, steeping you in the action instead of having you just sit back and watching everything unfold.

Excubitor really did the execution well between mashing the shooter and tower defense genres together. Maybe it just had to redefine itself just as a shooter/tower defense game than a bullet-hell type of game and such a compromise with the gameplay is understandable for the mash-up to work.

Excubitor is a fun and frantic mix of old school shooting and tower defense gameplay.

A well-executed mashup of two genres that's worth checking out if you're a fan of either.

Excubitor has a lot of enjoyable moments, though the tower defense elements lack and the controls take a little time to get used to.

Excubitor has a sound concept, with the shooter and tower defence genres working really well together. So it’s a shame then that a lot of the details equate to heavy, inaccurate controls and a cruel difficulty level, limiting the amount of enjoyment that can be had.

Bullet hell, but not at its finest
