Summary

I feel kinda weird about calling Loot Hero DX a game, I mean it is but it isn’t. OK, so what you do is you go from side to side and automatically hit and block against enemies and then take on a boss. Simple enough, you can even interact with it using just one hand. The problem I have is it has more in common with an idle clicker than an action game, you can even rescue miners who will earn gold for you when you are not playing. Nah you know what I’m gonna drop the whole is it a game or not shit. Loot Hero DX is a simple game but one that is so addictive and chill that it’s hard not to just love playing it. It gave up the Platinum trophy in like 20 minutes but it has endless replay value and I still find myself playing it now even after grabbing the Platinum. Honestly, it doesn’t do anything game or genre-defining but it nails fun, pure unadulterated fun and I love it.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
