A true labour of love that you can’t help but adore, Moonlighter is the perfect addition to any game library. Endearing, involving, addictive, and challenging all in equal measure, this lovely little rogue-lite will have you hooked in no time.
Moonlighter is easily one of the best action RPGs of the year so far. Its mashup of shop management and dungeon crawling results in an experience that has magnificent pacing, interesting mechanics and fluid gameplay. This may sound like a cliche, but Moonlighter is the definition of easy to pick up and hard to put down. It helps that it’s so accessible, making it suitable for both genre fans and newcomers alike.
Moonlighter might not seem that different from your average Kickstarted 16-bit platformer, and of course, there's not a huge amount of novelty in slaying monsters or selling loot, but Moonlighter's gameplay loop is well paced for the most part and only stumbles around the minor boss fights. The 16-bit style is lovely and so is the soundtrack, so if you're looking for your next indie-gem we would definitely recommend checking it out.
