  • Breakable objects like trees, crucifixes, boxes, and the like.
  • Good upbeat soundtrack.
  • The Necromancer uses a flail as a weapon and you don’t have direct control and instead have to fudge the physics to make it work, it sounds horrible but it’s actually well done and a unique challenge.
  • On the mouse and keyboard, you can move with WASD and/or the mouse.
  • Takes inspiration from Vampire Saviours.
  • Loot goblin-style enemy that randomly spawns and drops money when you hit him, he eventually tries and can escape.
  • End of run breakdown.
  • Very very addictive.
  • Can pick up and earn your health back.
  • Big boss encounters.

Soul Survivors Preview Cons:

  • The mouse and keyboard controls don’t feel as accurate and fluid as the controller.
  • Minimal graphics settings.
  • A run takes a while to get going.
  • The Necromancer flail does take a lot of practice to get going.
  • Only two characters and two locations.
  • Doesn’t have any leaderboards.
  • The choice of upgrades repeats a lot.
  • There isn’t a large number of random events.
  • A few performances hitch every now and then.

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!
