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

Exploring dungeons, selling loot, and upgrading gear creates is an enticing loop. However, the experience grows stale with repetition

Moonlighter is a delightful adventure into the depths of ancient dungeons and the trials of running an equipment shop.

A lot could be tightened up to make the game feel more snappy and responsive in almost every aspect, especially when it comes to moving inventory items. Moonlighter is incredibly captivating on the surface, but there is a lot of frustration just waiting to be uncovered.

Either going to the dungeon on an adventure or becoming a master shopkeeper, Moonlighter is the kind of game you'll struggle to put down. The Switch feels as it's true home, so if you haven't tried it yet, with this version you'll be out of excuses.

Moonlighter is one of the funniest indie games that we have seen this year. It mixes adventure and management and delivers hours of entertainment with an experience that feels fresh and brand new.

Moonlighter is an incredibly enjoyable jaunt through some interesting ideas and some fun fights. While the combat gets a little easy as you progress, the fun of watching money pour in as you play is immensely satisfying. It would be nice if there was more reason to play after completion as is normally the case with roguelites, but equally having an actual conclusion is a breath of fresh air for the genre. It is a lot of fun and one that will keep you entertained for a fair while if you want to sink your time into it.

There are a few annoying flies in the ointment — item descriptions don't always fit on screen, weapons occasionally miss enemies within range, and in-dungeon inventory management sometimes feels too time-consuming — but otherwise, the game's engaging blend of active shopkeeping and dungeon crawling should be more than enough to keep retro-styled action RPG fans smiling.

A welcome surprise that blends two different genre on one solid experience that is extremely fun during a long time despite being too rigid and grindy on its own scheme.

Whereas normal Roguelites are content with the loop of combat and loot gathering, Moonlighter's idea of selling gathered loot in your own shop is ingenious.

It's very charming, very beautiful, and both its comprising halves are enjoyable in their own ways.

Moonlighter's original conceit blends shopkeeping with monster-slaying in a way that's satisfying for most of its length. While both its combat and trading eventually get repetitive, the gorgeous graphics and pixel art make it a pleasant journey while it lasts. Unfortunately, your character's quest comes to feel as shallow as the merchant's life he wants to escape with its uninteresting goal and uninspired conclusion.

Moonlighter is a beautiful game that combines simplified versions of two game types into one. It's a novel attempt that plays it too safe on both fronts, and is held back from being something truly fantastic because of its lack of variety.

Though Moonlighter has several problems that prevent the game from truly achieving greatness, the excellent art and music and the fun gameplay experience make it worth a try if you enjoy roguelikes and want a new title to play.

Moonlighter is a highly recommend action RPG adventure that's a must buy for genre fans with a Switch. Whether you dig deep into the shop mechanics or just do a quick dungeon run while on the train to work, it ticks a lot of the right boxes and quite frankly I didn't want it to end.

Moonlighter is a delightful rogue-lite shopkeeping sim game (because that's a common combination) that can either take up one day of your time or multiple weeks, depending on your playstyle and preferences. If you're looking for a mild challenge, but want to have an overall relaxing experience in a lovingly crafted environment, then I can't recommend this game enough.

Moonlighter is a wonderful game that uses a delightful separation of tools to make you want to keep playing. It innovates the dungeon crawler genre in the most ingenious way possible.
