Description: KryptCrawler brings classic first-person, grid-based Dungeon Crawler gameplay to your PC and to Virtual Reality. Descend into the unknown and explore the perilous depth of the sinister tombs and crypts you are thrown into, armed with nothing but a map and your wits. Find powerful weapons and wield mighty artefacts to fight off the undead remains of the warriors who have come here before you. Defend yourself against poisonous scorpions, hungry spiders and other creatures of the dark.

KryptCrawler delivers a combination of turn-based old school gameplay and real-time combat and trap evasion unprecedented in its genre. Let’s just hope you make it back to sunlight to the world of the living – there are many rumours of simplehearted adventurers who have set foot into the abyss of the crypt and never have been heard of again!

Review: There isn’t much new here at all, KryptCrawler is a classic dungeon crawler with all the usual monsters hidden within its maze of walls. While KryptCrawler does get repetitive very quickly it’s large, dark dungeons do hold your interest for a fair while as it’s the never knowing that is the most fun with this style of game. Not knowing how the story will end, not knowing how to solve a puzzle and not knowing what is around the next corner. While I will say its price is just about justified given the number of dungeons you get to explore I suspect a lot of people will dislike it for the “grid” system of movement. But look past the poor controls and you will find a pretty great game that feels pretty immersive at times and isn’t too nauseating.
