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 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.
In the end this is only scratching the surface of not only the type of experience you get but also the many systems that work together to create what is an experience that grows and develops alongside your hero and store. Moonlighter, like many classic action-RPGs or fantasy blends like Harvest Moon or Stardew Valley, is a grower. With masterful touches.
