Summary

Necromancer is a very moreish game that is really easy to learn but brutally difficult throughout. I had endless fun playing with friends but the solo whilst still a fun task, tired and shows that RNG is the enemy. I couldn’t get over how happy it all felt and how the game was a simple idea but perfected to within an inch of its life. Thing is though it plays so well that it loses brownie points on modes and lastability. As it is the game is fun but times that by 2 when playing locally.

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!
