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.
If you're a fan of deck building or dungeon crawlers then Monster Slayers is a must try. For the $9 price tag there is an insane amount of content and replayability.
Even with a complex battle system, the harsh difficulty curve may be enough to turn many players off once they've completed the first dungeon. At the end of the day, the sheer joy of building a deck that suits your own playstyle is what makes this game special. Monster Slayers is one game not to overlook, if you're even remotely interested.
Various RPG elements add a layer of depth to an already interesting combat system. The card element becomes addictive in a fun way, and slowly building up the characters is a task that many players will quickly come to enjoy. Most of the game connects very well with itself, barring the large issue of randomness in difficulty.
Monster Slayers is a fun game and highly addictive game with a Platinum trophy that will take you a ton of time to unlock since it asks that you complete the game with every single character class, which pretty much means you need to unlock all permanent upgrades to be able to stand a chance. The random luck element of this one is high since depending on the cards you get from chests and when leveling up you will have an easier or harder time beating each dungeon and making short work of the bosses in your path.
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.
This noted, Monster Slayers is still a very addicting and solid game. I sunk a lot of hours into this game, and it's very cheap for how much enjoyment you can get from this game.
Show a lot of patience and the game will find a way to reward you.
