All you need to know about Heroes of Hammerwatch is that it's pretty damn addictive! It's hard to stop playing! Using simple and clear mechanics, this game is capable to get roguelike lovers into a rattling maelstrom of exploration and battles for many weeks.

Heroes of Hammerwatch rescues the essence of Gauntlet by offering a simple, direct and challenging rogue-lite. Very enjoyable if we play with friends, although monotonous and repetitive if we decide to play it alone.

Heroes of Hammerwatch is a great culmination of everything developer Crackshell started with Hammerwatch.

Heroes of Hammerwatch is rewarding, fun and the gameplay loop is very intelligently designed. Every time you return from a run through the dungeons, unless it was a complete disaster, you will be able to progress your town in one direction or another. I just wish some of the game was a bit easier to see on the Nintendo Switch's small screen.

I've sunk dozens of hours into Heroes of Hammerwatch and eagerly await the chance to spend dozens more. With numerous layers of progression systems, multiple distinct classes and more content than seems reasonable for its low price tag, Heroes of Hammerwatch is a must-play for roguelike fanatics or people after their dungeon-crawling fix.

Heroes of Hammerwatch is a game that grows on you. While definitely more fun with others I still had a lot of fun alone. It may have minor faults but I loved how I kept discovering something new about the game whether it was discovering a new mechanic or mastering the games traps. This is easily a title I’ll return to for years to come.
