The game, Enter the Gungeon is made in a very skillful way so as to combine different things coming up with something that is totally unique. This is a game that truly makes the grade and it is implemented very carefully in elements that are rogue like adding variety, replay ability and structure to it. It is well wrapped up in a place that is delightful and breezy and you will most definitely find yourself smiling and shooting all the way.
This game is about guns and bullets and shooting. This is of course to a very hilarious degree. The main story actually revolves around an Uber bullet which originates from the sky. There are shell casings as well as primer rims that are worked within the standard environment at each available opportunity. There are lots of enemies to deal with too and this are actual bullets shooting with their little hands. There is a goofy mix of fetishism which is disarming and set in a very unique tone.
Bullets in the game
This game isn’t all about looks. If you love arcade games, then you will have an amazing time all through. When you aim, you should be precise. Use the right amount so as to keep the game from feeling too easy or too hard especially when you are dealing with moving targets. From the first level up, there are enemies that can be able to throw lots of bullets at you. This gives the veteran jockeys a great opportunity to actually show off all the juking skills that they may have. Partially invincible dodge roll can help you get out of very tight spots. This rill was highly considered as the designs of different battles and areas were being created ad this makes it a very important tool instead of just a crutch that is an option to get out of jail.
Your mettle will be tested to the limits by filling your entire screen with nonsense and then getting you into a bullet hell. There is the one eyed be holster as well as the different bullet eruptions that constantly switch in between taking shots and homing rockets that you totally have to shoot down before you are hit. There is the sweeping death beam that also needs to be rolled over perfectly that you need to keep an eye open for. What follows is a juggling act that is fast paced which will challenge the reflexes as well as the players’ brain.
Minions within the halls are also quite varied. There are floating maidens who will spew bullets right at you as well the finger wiggling wizards and everything in between. You may be attached from literally any place. You will also notice that the enemy numbers actually go up as you progress throughout the game. From the first level, you will have to face challenges that you really need to handle before they get out of hand.
Gadgets and guns
Your foes are definitely diverse and very interesting. There is however a very wide array of gadgets and gins and this is what really stands out in this game. Your arsenal is usually full and there are both the conventional and the non-conventional options to choose from. The conventional ones include the Winchester or the sniper rifle while the unconventional ones include laser rifles and the pitchfork.
You can be able to differentiate the M4s and Mac-10s by things such as accuracy, bullet spread and clip capacity. The shooting and reloading sound effects make it much fun to fire the guns. There are also some conventional weapons that are a bit too dull in the game and they include the handguns and shotguns. This is because there are so much better weapons that you can get a chance of using.
Enter the Gungeon has got some pretty funny stuff too. There are different influences at work here and they all one up a whole new world of chances to play differently. There is a passive item called the Metronome and it actually lets out a chime every time that you kill without taking damage or switching guns. This noise actually means that the equipped gun is getting much stronger every time a foe is downed. This goes to a point where even the basic pistol is able to shave lots of life from a boss. There are gins that can fire two projectiles at a time and all one opposing curves. If the two get back together without hitting anything, then they result in a reaction which cause a very great explosion which can be able to clear the entire screen if it is placed in the proper way. here, you don’t just find the laser guns coming in different sizes and colors but rather, tools that are wholly unique and they bring with them a lot of fin and creative ways in which you can be able to defeat the enemies.
The rogue like elements
There are also rogue like elements that you will encounter in the game but these are applied in a very sparing way so as to make sure that the shooter gameplay isn’t complemented instead of smothering it. Every floor is created using a very random configuration and rooms that are handcrafted so that each and everything totally feels well placed. You never have to settle into a rhythm that is monotonous. All the boss drops, shop items and chests all come at random.
The bosses that you have to face are pulled at random from within a pool. This means that you need to be active. You need to stay alert as you may find yourself face to face with conventions that you may not have been prepared for.
There is a convention that you may find underdeveloped and this is the selection of the characters that are playable. There isn’t much different between them and so you may not feel an attachment to any one of them. Regardless of what you get to face, there isn’t anything that is as interesting as the gadgets and the guns that you get the opportunity of using.
There are many other elements that you will have to deal with during the gameplay. There are traps and NPCs that need saving as well as the sacrificial shrines. However, these are elements that are aimed at adding much more variety instead of force so as to allow you to get the best out of very bad situations just like in the other rogue likes. This allows you to remain focused on your own ability to shoot and move. When you make a lucky drop, you can make your life so much easier.
The game employs some great quality of life element and these help in keeping the action moving at a pace that is constant even in times when other games may seem to be slow. When you clear a room of baddies, the currency dropped will all come to you even as you move. You won’t have to waste any time as you scour for all the pennies before you actually move on. There are the teleporter nodes that are sprinkled all over the dungeon map that is marked rather well and this makes it so much easier to identify the doors that haven’t been opened already and any items that you may have left. You can return to these without necessarily hoofing all through empty rooms while at it. In the opening splash, there is the quick start prompt that you can use and into drops the player to a new run.
The design of the game is really sophisticated especially because the game is about bullets and some anthropomorphized bullets that come bearing guns. This game makes use of elements within one genre ad the context from yet another coming up with something that is totally enjoyable. This is a game that keeps on surprising you regardless of how many hours you have played already.
Sometimes you may get loot that is just bizarre and you may wonder why the game acts so tight fisted when it comes to giving it out. Power ups and new items are rare to find. You may also find that you are stuck with the starter weapons a few times.
Despite the niggles, this is a game that you will most definitely like. For all the genre fans, this is a game that has lots of depth and so much to be enjoyed. You may die or rage at some deaths but the fact still remains that you won’t get enough of this game.
