About this game
Content Rating: Everyone10+
Nuclear Throne is Vlambeers latest action roguelike-like about mutants that spend their workdays trying to fight for the throne in a post-apocalyptic world. The radioactive waste in the world allows mutants to get ahead by mutating new limbs on the fly and the abundant availability of powerful weaponry makes the quest to become the ruler of the Wasteland one fraught with peril. All of this is really just an excuse for us to make a fun action game.

I have come to love and loathe Nuclear Throne. It's one of the hardest, most rewarding games I've ever played. But as satisfying as it can eventually become, I think it is far too demanding for its own good. With additional polish and balancing, this could be a masterpiece in the genre. It's not quite there yet, but it's close.
Despite a learning curve to get around, the progression loop and monster attack patterns are manageable once you get a handle on them. While the core game can be completed by a skilled player in under an hour, plenty of roguelike randomness and challenges keep you coming back.
Like Dark Souls and other punishing games Nuclear Throne won’t be for everyone, but its rewards are in direct proportion to the difficulty you have in achieving every little victory. Nuclear Throne will always triumph in the end, but as you were probably told as a child it’s not the winning that’s important it’s the taking part.
