Colt Canyon is really just what the doctor ordered to kick off 2021. A breezy and consistently satisfying twin-stick shooter roguelike with a surprising amount of depth and where gunfights, stealth murder and dynamite powered destruction go hand in hand, Colt Canyon is a smart, wild west shooter that's well worth saddling up for.
Colt Canyon is an excellent roguelike with razor-sharp gameplay that's incredibly addictive. The rhythmic action is comparable to titles like Hotline Miami, and there's a constant temptation to have 'just one more go'. Some may not be too keen on the heavily-pixelated graphics, but it's the gameplay that truly shines through here, and once you've conquered the steep difficulty curve you'll find this to be a fine addition to the Switch's growing selection of roguelikes.
Colt Canyon is a fine half-twin-stick shooter/half-rogue-lite experience, varied enough to make us constantly switch between characters, weapons and approaches, trying to rescue a kidnapped partner in a pixel-based West Coast. While being wuite short and sometimes more difficult to read, it still will please fans of both genres

Playing Colt Canyon feels like being at the centre of a classic western movie, but with one of the best roguelike loops in recent memory. This game is by no means perfect - but its strengths far outweigh its weaknesses, leading to an enjoyable and entertaining combination of hectic gunplay and resource management.
