"Teleglitch is one of those rare few games that gets everything it attempts to do right. The oppressive atmosphere, crafting system, glitchy visuals, and careful combat are all done extremely well. The only negative thing that can be said for it is that it’s unforgiving." - Gamefront.com
"Teleglitch is a harsh mistress, but the cruelest lessons are often the ones that truly stick with us." - Joystiq.com
In a cold, dark future dominated by mega-corporations, a small lonely planet on the edge of habitable space is the site of a shadowy research facility specializing in necrotic tissue reactivation. You are a scientist who has suddenly awoken to the realization that you are the lone survivor. The rest of the facility’s personnel have all been killed – micro-chipped and reactivated as combatants by the facility’s central processing AI.
Teleglitch: Die More Edition is a roguelike top-down shooter with retro pixel graphics. Featuring procedurally generated maps that change with each play through, you will never experience the same facility twice. Clutch your gun, walk down the dark corridors and enter each new room hoping those last few rounds of ammunition will be enough. Feel the anxiety, the paranoia and the sheer terror of Teleglitch.

Why, I do not know :\samtahbou | May 12, 2015 | See all samtahbou's reviews »
I'm not entirely sure why, but this game has been one of most entertaining to me on steam in recent memory. The graphics may seem a little underwhelming, but combined with the smoothness of the game, the richness of the gameplay, the great soundtrack, and the level of difficulty and challenge involved in playing this little action adventure, this game finds a way into almost anyone's heart. I should point out that the graphics engine fits the game's purpose perfectly, yes I know, I just wrote it didn't look like much, but it is just right, the pixel art seems to compliment everything else in creating the perfect mix for a very endearing atmosphere, that keeps bringing you back for more every time you die - and yeah, I died a LOT!
A great top down shooter with a story!Cheese4395 | May 8, 2015 | See all Cheese4395's reviews »
This game came recommended from a friend after I had watched him play it and I'm not disappointed. This is probably one of the craziest game I've ever played. Having to item and bullet manage makes it super crazy. Add onto the intense story that is laid into the story.
Enjoy being killed...again and again and againZaggeta | Nov. 6, 2014 | See all Zaggeta's reviews »
An enjoyable romp in an intriguing and charmingly stylized world. Not so much of a difficulty curve than a perpetual stabbing of a spear in the gut - don't expect something easy. Even for casual players, there's a lot of fun to be had sprinting through the corridors with no more ammunition while be tailed by countless robot zombie mutant things. Just pray the door ahead is the teleporter and not a dead end. This game is for someone looking for a challenge that they can pick up and play at a moments notice.
Shockingly goodLorddyran | Aug. 18, 2014 | See all Lorddyran's reviews »
When I saw videos and screenshots of this game, I was uninterested. I picked it up only because it was cheap and I kept hearing good things, and I am damn glad I did. It's very hard, but not really unfair. The graphics, primitive though they are, are well-implemented. I never thought I would be so worried about the safety of the couple boxes that make up my main character. The item combining feature is pretty awesome, and the text is well-written. Very much worth the price.
Things will go wrong. [Patch v9.3]ChaoticLaw | July 20, 2014 | See all ChaoticLaw's reviews »
Teleglitch is a game which pushes rogue-likes into real time quite well. A departure from the typical turn based rogue-likes (which I do enjoy), there's an additional element of action, forcing you to act without having any time to plan your actions. The story is pretty typical with an experiment gone wrong, with the facility gone to hell. Aside from the monologue between levels, terminals are scattered through the randomly generated areas, with small bits and pieces to inform you of the various devices in the game, as well as things you can do to make your life more manageable. Graphically, this game does well. Without attempting to try and make the graphics realistic, the pixel style is a nice step up from the grid-based tile setup, and the lighting flickers to just show the outline of the enemies ahead. The sounds are minimalistic, and the eery silence will make you strain to listen out for any of the encounters that could be lurking in the shadows. Weapons sound the way you'd imagine, although they are a vast contrast to when you're not in combat. Gameplay in Teleglitch is challenging and unforgiving, layering pressure with every level as you struggle to manage materials, deal with the enemies, and escape from the current sector. Paradox recently released a new patch which added an arena mode which allows you to get into the action much quicker. With different loadouts, you can take on multitudes of enemies with items you probably didn't know existed. It however can get repetitive as the required objectives are fairly standard and tend to loop over and over. They are also limited by the fact that you can only unlock arenas after reaching a level from the main game. You might play this game once, and forget it for a while. But do come back to it. You might escape after all.
