Description: Prevent the Fall is an action oriented computer role playing game which can be played with or without virtual reality headsets. Experience the game in either single player or in multiplayer co-op online or via LAN. Advance through twenty character levels, as you explore semi-procedurally generated dungeons, earn Steam Achievements, and acquire a slew of items in this RPG experience. Co-op sessions can be mixed and matched with both VR and non-VR players adventuring together. The game can be controlled with mouse and keyboard, gamepad, or motion controllers (Vive or Touch). Both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets are supported.
Dungeons are semi-procedurally generated for maximum performance. Utilizing randomly selected layouts players will be able to generate simple quests which will have them seeking to explore, slay, or collect items in dungeons featuring generated NPCs, loot, and traps. Players are able to increase or decrease the difficulty of these quests, and dungeon encounters will spawn an increased number of monsters based on the number of players in co-op sessions.
Review: Prevent The Fall is a classic dungeon crawler game in which all the dungeons are randomly generated which means they never look the same way twice which is a nice touch. With loads of items to use and find in-game, it has a grand plan with a lot of promise that many people will like. But sadly with the lack of online players this game is pretty much dead as they come. Yes, you can easily explore on your own, but it isn’t worth the £6.99 price tag for this alone. I just wish they had gone all out in the single-player mode rather than trying to make it some sort of MMO game.
