Developed by Nerdook (Reverse Crawl, Vertical Drop Heroes), Monster Slayers is a complete reimagining of the free web-based hit of the same name, which has been played over 4 million times on gaming portal, Kongregate. A rogue-like deck-building RPG adventure, Monster Slayers uses an innovative card-based battle system and lets you customize a deck to suit your play style. Create a new hero to join the Monster Slayers Guild and choose your path through the perilous Northern Valley as you follow your quest to defeat the legendary Harbinger and become a true Monster Slayer.
Dream Quest basically invented the deck-building rogue-like genre, and Monster Slayers is okay, but nowhere as good. There are too many cards that let you draw another card when you play them, so you don't have to consider whether you actually want to add it to your deck. There's also a weird upgrade system, where you can outfit your characters with equipment to give them various boosts, and you keep all the equipment even if they die. (Be warned that you lose all the equipment if you beat the final boss!) This leads to weird situations where instead of spending your gold to improve your chances of winning your current run, you instead spend it on an item that's useless for your current guy but will be useful for a different character. The game also isn't very good about making it clear what cards the enemy is playing against you, and what they're doing, so while this game is definitely easier than Dream Quest it isn't much more user-friendly.
Monsters Slayers is an amazing little game. I'm normally not a fan of roguelike games but this one is pretty cool. The gameplay is interesting to say the least, you keep progressing and getting stronger. At first this might seem a bit weird but it fits the game really well. The art style is also very unique, it has a really cartoonish style. The SoundTrack is pretty good aswell. I rate this game 4 out of 5 stars!
