You’ll know whether Moonlighter sounds like your next addiction, because you’ve probably already been there with Stardew or Isaac before, driving yourself to that special kind of madness. But if it sounds like it’s for you, you need to get yourself down to Rynoka stat. Will’s about to become your new best friend.
There are a few annoying flies in the ointment — item descriptions don't always fit on screen, weapons occasionally miss enemies within range, and in-dungeon inventory management sometimes feels too time-consuming — but otherwise, the game's engaging blend of active shopkeeping and dungeon crawling should be more than enough to keep retro-styled action RPG fans smiling.
That’s the true victory of Moonlighter. Every piece of the puzzle is simple and welcoming, but the whole is more than the sum of its parts. This is a gorgeously rendered world that succeeds in translating the monotony of life in a fun way. You can feel Will’s yearning for something more, and you share in his discovery as you unearth each new mystery. Moonlighter isn’t going to be your new roguelike addiction, but its touching coming of age story will stick with you long after you put the controller down.
