Enter the Gungeon is the latest in the recent trend of action rogue-likes. Combining the designs of The Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, the game is one of the hardest entries in the genre, but a few decisions leave me reaching for my holster.
After several years in development, the rogue-like twin stick shooter Nuclear Throne is finally out. While it has been a long trip through early access, the game hasn’t changed all that much; leaving us with a game that tries to be two different genres and unfortunately doesn’t succeed at either in my opinion.
Nuclear Throne is the latest game from Vlambeer, a developer whose previous titles have all kept to a retro theme. This time the developers are combining retro shooting with the rogue-like genre and while the game is still in early access, it is shaping up to be a chaotic good time.
