Crawl is a fast brawler with constantly shifting alliances that lead to excitement, confusion, and chaos all in equal measure

Crawl spent a long time getting to where it is now, and the results speak for themselves – it's the best time you'll have knifing your friends in the dark, betraying all bonds, and desperately trying to escape the clutching tentacles of the abyss.

A fun game that's eve funnier when played with friends on its local multiplayer. If it's not played that way, Crawl will show its less good side, being a bit dull.

You should consider Crawl a maybe if you mostly play by yourself, but it's a must-buy if you have friends or family to bring along on your crawls.

Crawl is a fun co-op dungeon crawler that sets the hero against his ghostly former friends as they race to make it out of the dungeon alive. Its innovative game mechanic keeps heroes and monsters at much the same level throughout, so the hero has to stay on his toes as he and the ghosts fight it out for control of the one remaining body in the dungeon. With the procedurally-generated nature of the title, players needn't fear getting bored with the same old dungeons and enemies each time, and fighting one's way through epic co-op battles will be a good time with friends.

Crawl and Nintendo Switch can be considered a match made in Heaven (or in Hell, considering the setting): absolutely enjoyable when played in two and potentially a blast with three or four players, this weird and highly original mix of genres is a perfect fit for those in search of a thrilling competition. Be warned: with the right group of people, Crawl could quickly turn into a little cult.

As you might have guessed, we really like Crawl, and we'd bet our collected stash of gold and wrath you will, too. It's great fun in single-player thanks to some aggressive AI that will hound you at every moment, but that consistent danger takes on a new lease of enjoyment when you and three of your friends are jostling for XP and that all important killing blow. Couchplay doesn't get much better than this on Switch.

A simple, yet deceptively fun dungeon crawler with a twist when played with friends cooperatively. Powerhoof's over-the-top, horror-themed game uses pixel art to a great degree while also delivering a unique experience.

Crawl is a very fun and hectic game you can definitely play on your own with bots or with human soon-to-be ex-friends at home or on the go. The gameplay is easy enough to quickly understand the basics in a couple of minutes, and the randomly generated dungeons will keep you busy for a while. Crawl is a Switch release I definitely recommend you check out.

Crawl is definitely worth a download, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
