Of the many roguelites I've played over the last few years, Monster Slayers is perhaps the most successful in offering enough variety and options to prevent the annoyance and frustration that so often accompanies repeated playthroughs.

Monster Slayers is a great blend of an RPG and a deck building game.  While it's not as complicated as traditional deck building games, it works really well with the RPG elements of the game.  If you're looking for something different than your traditional RPG…or deck building game for that matter…especially if you're a fan of Vertical Drop Heroes, you should really enjoy Monster Slayers.

All in all, Monster Slayers is a solid, easy to pick up and play kind of game. While it may not be as mechanically complex as other deck-builders, the variety and ease of gameplay make it a ton of fun to jump into.

Monster Slayers is a good and fun dungeon crawler with a card twist that makes this one feel interesting during the many runs you'll need to do – at least if you want to add a new Platinum trophy for your collection! There are many classes to play as, several cards to upgrade and many options of how to build up your characters in subsequent runs, so you'll definitely find something to like as you try and make it to the end to bring peace to the realm.
