Lost Sea does provide endless replay value and always offers somewhere new to explore so great potential for extended gameplay.
All in all, this game is very enjoyable to play and I would highly recommend it. It’s very easy to both just pick it up and play for a few minutes or sit in and binge on. I personally think this game would be appropriate for all ages as I fully believe that a younger person could pick this game up and run with it. The game isn’t complicated and is very easy to just run around and explore as you attack anything that moves and pick up anything shiny!
Overall Lost Sea is a great Roguelike that sticks to that concept very well without introducing loads of other features that bury the point. The search for the tablets can be an exhilarating or terrifying one depending upon which island you fortunately or unfortunately landed upon as the danger of death is always near very real with only ever having your weapon as a constant companion.
Lack of variety and a poorly designed progression system hurt the game, but it's a fun, family friendly activity for younger gamers to spend a few hours on.
Random generated areas and spawns switch things up constantly
Lost Sea is a game that could have been better with a bigger workforce or a better focus. While there was some passion poured in, so much feels cheap and or forceful. It’s a real shame, because you only get a game with a great premise like this so often.
Honestly, I really enjoy the game. I had a ton of fun with the game, on both systems, and I still plan on having a ton of fun going forward. Yes, there are issues with Lost Sea, and even some I would personally consider major ones, but you may not, and if you don’t, that’s even better.
"Lost Sea is full of great ideas, sadly those ideas get all too quickly lost beneath its largely frustrating permadeath system and lacklustre enemies".
This is a polished hack-n-slash with basic premises and enough grind worthy gameplay to earn some attention. Not as memorable as you'd expect from a trip to the Bermuda Triangle, but it's a great way to escape for a weekend.
Although I enjoyed Lost Sea quite a lot due to its relaxing exploration and rewarding gameplay, its glaring problems get in the way of it being a great game.
