Descending into The Pit.

Nemorian | June 5, 2013 | Review of Sword of the Stars: The Pit

A couple weapons, few clips of ammo, some food and meager extra supplies. Thirty random floors of who-knows-what waiting in the shadows to eat your face off. The odds are definitely in favor of the face-munching.

The challenge, however, is part of what makes this game fun. While you may never start with much, there's plenty to loot from abandoned containers and gunned-down monsters. Find more ammo, a better rifle, and craft your own tools of survival from the many recipes you can either toss together at random or from info you can get on old terminals (provided your decipher abilities are up to par).

Of course finding what you need is never guaranteed, so rationing your supplies is vital to a lengthy survival. With a nice balance of skill, strategy and luck you might even make it to the bottom. Just remember to keep yourself fed, watch for traps and make every bullet count.

If you're a fan of roguelikes, tactics games and/or dungeon crawlers, The Pit may be very well be a game you'll enjoy jumping into.
