A superb roguelike with a somewhat unique style and feel for it, recommended for the slightly more tactically-minded minded players compared to the likes of Spelunky and Rogue Legacy.

The mix of roguelike modes lets you play at different paces, but once I had my one incredible run to victory, I felt like I'd seen everything the game had to offer

Cryptark is unforgiving and merciless in its approach to balancing roguelike elements with a deeper sense of exploration and survival. It may not be to everyone's tastes, but anyone looking to salvage a lengthy dungeon-crawler in space that is heavy on action and challenge will find plenty to love here. And scream about, when a perfect run is cocked up by the ship teleporting in a few heavy reinforcements right on top of you.

Cryptark is a roguelike shooter which provides a challenging and funny experience. All the stages of the game are randomly generated: if you're looking for a relaxing adventure, it would be better to stay away from it.

Overall Cryptark is a great, albeit limited, fast paced experience. While it could have benefited from having a greater narrative scope and dialog between the characters, the action and replayability will be more than enough to keep you going for a long time.
