Crypt of the NecroDancer is a phenomenal dungeon crawler. It’s loaded with personality, great music, fun characters and deep action that only appears simplistic on the surface. ...The necromancer’s dance-club dungeon is only missing a bouncer who doesn’t think you’re quite good enough to be seen with the beautiful creatures to complete its image as the best nightclub in the underworld, and even if had proper security, there’d probably be a way to combat-dance it into oblivion.

I’ve been in a bit of a gaming funk recently, but Crypt of the NecroDancer has reminded me how creative, original, and fun video games can be. I’ve switched it off at 2 a.m. more than once this week, forcing myself to break from a dangerously addictive “one more go” loop as I tried in vain to beat the damn thing. It’s an eminently replayable experience that offers up a whole range of different ways to play, some of which will force you to completely rewire your brain.

If you're feeling a particular beat, you can also import your own music to play along with, which works well. It doesn't change the actual content of the game, just the rhythm at which you play it. ...Regardless of your musical tastes, Crypt of the NecroDancer takes a proven but basic recipe and improves it with a seemingly simple twist. It would have been a fine roguelike game without its musical side, but the rhythm mechanic makes it a truly special experience.
