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.

If you have a longing for another game similar to Descent and Forsaken, Sublevel Zero Redux is it.
Sublevel Zero Redux isn't a bad game as much as it's a disappointing one. A roguelike with uninteresting mechanics, SBZ ultimately crashes into the ceiling it hopes to shatter.
If you give Sublevel Zero Redux the time it deserves, you won’t be able to help falling in love with its approach to upgrades and consistent unrelenting challenge.
Fun and solid roguelike six-degree-of-freedom shooter
Sublevel Zero Redux is one of the most ambitious roguelikes due to its impressive combination of genres and intuitive gameplay.
Sublevel Zero Redux is a relatively solid and expanded port of its original 2015 release. Some new difficulties adds a much needed factor of replayability as well as a plethora of codex entries to unlock. Unfortunately, the game is still riddled with frame drops here and there, and I experienced a few cases of the game completely game locking. So if you don't mind a few stuttery frames then Sublevel Zero Redux is a satisfactory choice for anyone who is looking for their next roguelike fix.
Sublevel Zero Redux is a great example of why we have come to love independent studios. The Sigtrap team attempt to bring something fresh and new to the often “too-similar” first person shooter market and the experience is worth taking a flier on.
The world looked great, the variety of guns was fantastic and I enjoyed the levels though still desired something more from the experience.
Sublevel Zero: Redux is a remastered and expanded version of the original 2015 release on PC. Having never played the PC version, I can’t comment on the changes to the original formula. What I can say consoles needed a 6DOF shooter a Sublevel Zero fills that void nicely. Its RPG and rogue-like elements elicit the addictive anticipation of one more run and, before you know it, you’re off again. The downsides of random generation aren’t unique to Sublevel Zero, but are disappointing nonetheless. The long-game isn’t quite there, and a few extra how-tos would be most welcome, but the mechanics of blasting your way through its robot infested halls are a lot of fun to master.
