If you like strategy games and are really into ancient Japanese legends, Haunted Dungeon: Hyakki Castle takes art and story from the Edo period to create a unique strategy game. While it was not entirely my speed (it does put the crawl in “dungeon crawl”), it is a break from the frantic pacing of many dungeon crawlers with a central mechanic adds creative possibilities to puzzle solving and combat.

Only gamers who specifically love dungeon crawling and the 1600s Japan setting should keep an eye out for this game during a 50% or higher price drop. Others will likely be frustrated by long and repetitive combat in a generally very repetitive game.

It’s drab, depressing early dungeons made way to more interesting locales as I ascended into the castle on my quest to destroy the evil minions of an exiled sorcerer (honestly, don’t expect really any crucially interesting story here, this game is about killing things) and the presence of the odd boss monster was a nice way to add some incentive to keep moving forward, with a fast paced leveling system and hunger gauge aiding a feeling of constant forward progression.
