  • A little detail that adds a lot of magic to the game.[edit] THE STORY.
  • Music is absolutely stellar (composer of the original Super Meat Boy).
  • CUSTOM MUSIC DISABLES ACHIEVEMENTS! A really good thing to know up front
  • Learning enemy behaviors and discovering new items become fun exercises.
  • Also this game even during Early Access didn’t have any gamebreaking bugs.
  • People are welcome to subscribe and watch the game in action when I play. “
  • There’s a local co-op mode of some sort too, hell if I know how that works.
  • This game is infinitely replayable, with daily challenges and hardcore mode.
  • SO MUCH FUN.I’ve spent far too much time in a single night playing this game.
  • Well, turns out that these are for using items and using some menu functions.
  • The longer you stay in rhythm with the beat, the higher your multiplayer goes.
  • Custom music is a plus, and I have not found any errors working with it so far.
  • They fit so well with the game, and they still function in fun and unique ways.
  • The enemies are well designed, each with varying movement and attack mechanics.

  • Really fun and original game with the best soundtrack I’ve heard in a long time.
  • TL;DR: If you like rogue likes, rhythm games, or dungeon crawlers, get this game.
  • Hard as balls, fantastic music, great gameplay, and a great premise in the story.
  • It’s a simple, but very well executed catch that adds a lot of flavor to the game.
  • I’m not even that big a fan of dungeon crawlers, but I’m a sucker for rhythm games.
  • The premise of this game is a dungeon crawler roguelike where you move to the beat.
  • You would never expect a rhythm-dungeon crawler combo to ever work, but boy does it.
  • I cannot recommend this game enough for roguelike fans, and fans of the indie scene.
  • This might be one of the single greatest indie games I’ve played in… well, forever.
  • It’s not like rogue’s tale when you can be killed on first turn the moment you spawn.
  • It rocks on its own, but the ability to use your own MP3s is brilliant.* Local co-op.
  • Crypt of the NecroDancer makes you move on the beat to navigate ever changing dungeons.
  • What’s the game’s main goal? Kill all the monsters in randomly generated dungeons? Nah.
  • Sound effects are basic and they work, signalling damage, movement, and enemy presence.
  • You move into a monster to attack it, different weapons change the shape of your attack.
  • And practice resulted in the ability to take part on the CoNDOR Racing League on Twitch.
  • I don’t think anyone would have thought to put a rogue-like rpg into a rhythm based game.
  • Only frustrating bit is how hard it is to complete story mode, but hey, it’s a roguelike.
