This is a challenging game. Despite enemies telegraphing attacks, their numbers can get the better of you. Combined with arena traps, hazards, and a lack of light sources, it can be rather difficult. However, with a parry, dodge roll, and your set of weapons, you're given plenty of opportunity to defend yourself.

As Rogue-likes go, Curse of the Dead Gods is up there with the best of them. It’s got brilliant combat, dastardly traps to overcome if you want their riches, and numerous unique systems layered on top that add considerable depth. With the prospect of death (or at least grave misfortune) around every corner, it keeps you on your toes, uncertain of what the future holds.

Curse of the Dead Gods is a fun, polished, and mechanically-sound roguelike with a few smart twists. Unfortunately, a lack of personality and variety means it’s also a game that gets less interesting the longer you play it. Hardcore roguelike fans will enjoy their time with these Dead Gods, but less dedicated players may find themselves praying for relief.

Overall, Curse of the Dead Gods is a pretty decent game. Though it doesn't bring anything of its own to the table, the features it combines from fellow roguelites it combines well, and with a certain strategic depth.

Curse of the Dead Gods' mechanics work together and mesh excellently, with the dark oppressive narrative and atmosphere really creating a unique gameplay experience, with the features on offer. A lot of variation and the ability to tune your character helps it stand out during the less enjoyable difficulty spikes the game suffers with towards the end.

Un roguelike bastante atractivo que no goza de demasiada originalidad pero, a cambio, posee un muy buen sistema de combate, una progresión muy satisfactoria y una ambientación más que aceptable.

Curse of The Dead Gods je skvelá izometrická akcia v temnom fantasy prostredí. A veľmi originálna. Balansovanie medzi svetlom a tmou ovplyvňuje nielen prehľad o teréne, ale aj bojové vlastnosti. A fakľa sa dá využiť na rozjasnenie okolia, ale aj na interakciu s prostredím. Prvok skazenosti a prekliatia je perfektný.
