The cutesy presentation and pick-up-and-play feel of The Swords of Ditto belie its true nature: a fierce, fiendish, oft-frustrating roguelite adventure. You may not want to keep going around that loop forever, but luckily there’s enough enjoyment to be found in the (minimum) half a dozen or more runs it will take you to beat the game for the first time that – if you do choose to stop there – you’ll still feel rewarded by the experience.
There are a few minor grievances with The Swords of Ditto that keep it from being one of my more treasured roguelikes, although both could easily be resolved with the right amount of programming and tender care, namely in speeding up the beginning of a Sword’s adventure and the crashes that creep up intermittently. Despite this, what’s already available to get in players’ hands is a charming Roguelite that offers more challenge and secrets than it initially lets on.
Devolver Digital and Onebitbeyond’s action RPG, The Swords of Ditto, isn’t a complete reinvention of the roguelike subgenre, but it has enough modern twists and artistic charm to stand out. Players new to such games might have trouble jumping in, though, as a few important mechanics of the subgenre aren’t explained as well as they should have been.
