Exit the Gungeon
Top Critic Average
Exit the Gungeon's random gun-switching can be frustrating but it's also a chaotic challenge that makes each run fun.
Is it another Enter the Gungeon? No, it isn't. But as a quick arcade romp, it's a blast. It shows that even when shifting genres, Dodge Roll knows how to craft a good roguelike and keep players wanting to punish themselves more and more with each run.
Exit the Gungeon rescues the thug style of its predecessor but its main mechanics can cause a high degree of frustration in the player due to different design decisions.However, we spend a very entertaining time in a world that will be more than familiar to the fans of Enter the Gungeon, drawn with magnificent detail and care.

A charming arcadey Roguelike, Exit the Gungeon: Hello to Arms takes randomness to a new level with delightful results.
Now with much more precise controls than its original release on iOS, Exit the Gungeon is a solid spin-off to Dodge Roll's indie darling that can often be a little too frustrating for its own good.
Those expecting the quality and polish of its predecessor will be disappointed with Exit the Gungeon. It's too visually clustered and the new mechanics can be more frustrating than fun. Still, for a short burst of rogue-like goodness, you could do worse.
A sufficiently wacky and charismatic follow up experience to Enter The Gungeon and an enjoyable roguelite game. Regrettably, due to a number of flaws, it can't be appraised as the sequel fans would have hoped for. Exit The Gungeon probably won't win over any genre newcomers either. However, for existing fans longing for another crawl in the Gungeon, Exit The Gungeon just about does enough to be worth a look.
Most of the content, including music, items, and enemies, is directly transferred from the world of Enter The Gungeon, making the product even more secondary than it previously seemed. On PC, Exit the Gungeon has already experienced several patches, after which it became more playable, but it is still noticeable that this is a quickly molded game, released in the hope of hype around the first one and high sales.

Exit the Gungeon is ultimately neither a good bullet hell game, nor a particularly fun experience. All in all, it’s a pretty bite size offering that lacks the variety one would expect from a full PC title.
While I still prefer the original because of the overall size of rooms, I’m impressed with what Dodge Roll did with this sequel.
