A refreshing Zero Gravity FPS let down by it's Roguelike skin. Great moment to moment gameplay, but gets repetitive quickly.

Sublevel Zero Redux is one of the standout shooters in the indie scene. Fusing "six degrees of freedom" shooting with permadeath, procedural generation, and crafting makes for a tense and unpredictable adventure each time you play.

Sublevel Zero Redux on the Nintendo Switch is a space-based first-person shoot'em-up that features a slick gameplay, a very healthy amount of content and a roguelite approach to its sections. If this will please both fans of the genre and beginners, the game can become repetitive in a rather short time and the use of the map in the exploration will become too frequent.

We are a space explorer who is dragged through a dimensional hole. From that moment his mission changes. If you wanted to cool and original shoot'em up this is your game; As long as its retro look and its short duration is not a problem.

Sublevel Zero Redux has helped remind us that 6DOF gameplay is something that should return in bigger bulk, and fans that enjoy games like Descent will see things here to relish – tight controls, fluid movement and the challenge.

Sublevel Zero Redux is a fine example of a roguelike game with a brilliantly tight control scheme and striking visual style. Though not without fault, it's a game that drives you to observe and better your knowledge, to in turn understand and enjoy more of what really makes it stand out. I wholeheartedly recommend it to any fans of roguelikes and floaty spaceship goodness.

Whether you happened to cross paths with this odd little genre during its brief popularity or Sublevel Zero Redux will be your first dizzying journey, you're in for a great blend of retro game design with a twist of modern mechanics. While I do wish the art and mechanics worked a little better together now and then, it doesn't hamper the addictive gameplay to any significant degree. Grab some motion sickness medicine and get ready to spin and shoot.
