Where the game stumbles a bit is in its aesthetic variety. While the enemies have a nice look and feel to them I can’t help but feel a bit tired of them after a couple of runs. It would have been really nice to see some other type of robots or alien make an appearance as well for variety’s sake. Cryptark is an excellent roguelike with a nice look and feel to it. If you’re not completely tired of the genre yet, I recommend that you check it out.
A twin-stick shooter living inside a smartly designed rogue-like about salvaging derelict space hulks that aren't quite derelict. Some planning required.
With its repeatable structure and myriad options for customization and approaches, Cryptark begs you to play run after run at its intricate levels, but I didn’t feel compelled to dive back in after I’d finished the final level. Mapping out your plan of attack and then successfully executing is a thrill, but with only a few key obstacles between you and your prey, this strategic layer never takes off the way it deserves to. Cryptark’s surprising depth of options might hook you at the outset, but they aren’t enough to make you return time and again.
