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.

3.5 / 5.0

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.

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.
