Despite a nice aesthetic in the missions and a handful of interesting concepts, Conglomerate 451 just doesn't do quite enough to stand out and be noticed.

It’s a game that pays homage to genre conventions like hacking and exploration, but with forward facing design. Rather than backwards. Then side to side. Then 90 degrees to the left. Monch monch.

While a visually beautiful game that checks all of the grungy, neon-bathed cyberpunk boxes, Conglomerate 451 fails to leave a lasting impression after the first couple of hours. The premise is interesting, the gameplay is fairly average, but something is missing.

Conglomerate 451 manages to mix the highest traditions of the dungeon crawler genre with the gameplay mechanics one would expect from any modern video game. There are some flaws here and there, especially concerning the procedural generation of the missions, but they are counterbalanced by the high variety of the enemy types and the deep customization system of the agents.
