Moonlighter Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Beautiful Pixel Art

Unique Gameplay Hooks

Somewhat SImplistic

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.

Critic Reviews for Moonlighter

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

An addictive mix of combat and commerce.

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.

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.
