General Information

Available on:PCApr 29, 2015

Developer: Puuba

Publisher: Mastertronic

Genres: Roguelike, Adventure

The Weaponographist is a high-speed, top-down dungeon-crawling arena combat game. Cool kids might call it a “Roguelike”. You play as Doug McGrave, famous demon hunter for hire. Highest level, bestest gear, ruggedly handsome, and unrepentant jerk. For refusing to aid one stinking demon-infested town, you are immediately – and deservedly – cursed. Your powers, your wealth, and your weapons… Poof! Gone. To overcome the curse, you’ll need to make use of whatever weapons you can find. Swords, chainsaws, machine guns, pogo sticks… Use them while you can. Because they’ll all fall apart in your hands.

Speedy arena combat and a cartoon personality make The Weaponographist a retro-flavored dungeon worth crawling.

As a hypothetical free PlayStation Plus title, The Weaponographist would have some room to flourish as a mindless hack and slash game with a poorly implemented, but nonetheless existent, reward loop. But as it exists right now in its sole PC incarnation, there are many more titles worthy of your time -- including that 1000th run of Isaac you've been putting off.

[N]ot all is bad with The Weaponographist. I enjoy the basic gameplay, and the Saturday-morning cartoon-style visuals and light humor add to the fun. However, the lack of variety and poor design decisions make it seem like I'm the one that's cursed whenever I play.

A witch's curse, charming graphics, and chaotic gameplay save this fast-paced but repetitive dungeon crawler 'The Weaponographist' from mediocrity. Just don't call it a roguelike.
