Content Rating: Teen
Playing as a teenage protagonist, you must venture into the Fallow — an ever-changing, radioactive wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures. It is here that you will find the solution to heal the world, and transform the cracked, barren landscape into a lush source of new life. But humanity’s future comes at great personal cost, as the deeper you journey into unknown lands, the more you will expose yourself to gnarly toxins which will wreak havoc on your fragile human form.

RAD is a lot deeper than it looks at first glance, and a lot more challenging too. Both are good things, and the procedurally generated layouts and mutations guarantee that variety will always be served. Sometimes you’ll play for minutes and other times for hours – I’m about eight hours deep so far – but the more time you spend with RAD, the more likely you are to click “New Run” when you finally die.
Given the price and the huge amount of variety we’d recommend Rad to just about anyone. It’s not the most exciting game to look at – with an unnecessarily ugly art style – but the sense of never knowing what’s going to happen next, despite constantly starting from scratch, is something few other games can match. For roguelikes it’s a pretty radical departure from the norm, and we mean that in both senses of the word.
RAD è senz’altro un buon gioco, di ottima fattura dal punto di vista tecnico e piuttosto accattivante grazie al suo stile retrò e al gameplay dinamico. Purtroppo non riesce a fare quel salto in avanti che lo avrebbe senz’altro portato a elevarsi e distinguersi in maniera decisa dal resto dei titoli roguelike disponibili.
