Iron Crypticle is a fantastic rogue-lite update of some of the seminal arcade experiences of my youth, and provides a rewarding challenge even at its easiest setting.

Fun and easy to control. Not extremely beautiful, but gets the job done due its low price.

A fun throwback to a number of different beloved titles, Iron Crypticle is fun in short bursts and can be a blast with friends. Yet, aside from the charm of the 8-bit visuals, there isn't an enormous amount here to keep you dungeon running once the initial novelty wears thin.

Reinvigorating the twin-stick shooter like few before it with a veritable masterclass of design, you absolutely do not want to sleep on Iron Crypticle.
