Critic Reviews for Xenon Valkyrie+
Xenon Valkyrie+ is something I easily see myself coming back to whenever I have a free moment and my Vita in hand. It can be a cruel experience for sure and some alterations to the overall design would go a long way, but it's still a fun little game I can play seriously for hours or casually on a lunch break.
Xenon Valkyrie+ is an excellent game with an 8-bit artistic look that works very well. It has a simple gameplay but tremendously addictive. An essential title not without flaws that will delight the increasingly numerous roguelike players.

Xenon Valkyrie+ introduces a very well-presented gameplay to Xbox. Beginning with a simple, but also interesting story. It lets the player quickly get into the battle without wasting time trying to get used to mechanics. Although permadeath can be a huge disappointment for casual players, there are multiple characteristics that made up for the difficulty in levels. The pixilated design puts bright colors on the screen, which looks great at all times. Finally, the soundtrack brings high-quality music to the adventure and is one of my favorite presentation elements in this game.
Xenon Valkyrie+ is playable, but there is just so much left to be desired. Feeling more like an alpha version with tremendous potential, the longer you play, the more you realise everything you want the game to be, it sadly is not, and players will be left with a mediocre platformer/rogue title instead. If this was a demo of what was to come, it would be so easy to sing its praises but, as it is, it only serves as a source of aggravation for what it could have been.
Xenon Valkyrie+ is a game you're either going to love or hate. If you're a fan of the roguelike genre and favor hardcore platformers, then you'll feel right at home with this game. But if you're new to the genre and don't like replaying the same sections, even if the content is randomized during every new run, then this one isn't going to win you over.
