The visual look of the game is novel and fun, but underneath it is a shallow and only intermittently enjoyable dungeon crawler.

The rest of Brutal doesn’t live up to its inspired visuals but it still makes for a good time

I can’t recommend this to all but the most diehard of genre fans. Even then, the art style may be lost on people who aren’t old enough to remember MS-DOS or a ZX Spectrum. That seems to be the most unique feature of the game.

[email protected] is certainly a punishing experience for those not used to Rogue-like tropes. Yet it’s a visually attractive game that pays tribute to Rogue in its ASCII style that’s genuinely appealing, as well as having a clean interface and enough flair in the combat to not be devalued as a button masher. A few issues rise when it comes to cooperative play, which make this a harder sell, but [email protected] is otherwise a fitting tribute to Rogue and the genre that came from it that dominates the indie scene.
