Reviews Summary

Beautiful Pixel Art
Unique Gameplay Hooks
Somewhat SImplistic

Summary: Balancing shopkeeping and roguelike dungeon crawling, Moonlighter delights with its well-realized pixel art world. Simplistic and repetitive gameplay doesn't get in the way of a delightful adventure.

During a long-passed archaeological excavation, a set of Gates were discovered. People quickly realized that these ancient passages lead to different realms and dimensions – providing brave and reckless adventurers with treasures beyond measure. Rynoka, a small commercial village, was founded near the excavation site providing refuge and a place for adventurers to sell their hard-earned riches.

Moonlighter is an Action RPG with rogue-lite elements following the everyday routines of Will, an adventurous shopkeeper that dreams of becoming a hero.

Moonlighter is a cute and casual revival of an uncommon mashup but doesn't stick around to push the boundaries.
