'..joy comes from amassing items, gaining experience and watching your character evolve into a godly killing machine.'' - Joystiq
''This game is immaculate. The enemy design, the sound effects, the powers, the fights, all of it feels wonderful.'' - Eurogamer
"..a ridiculously compelling procedurally generated side-scrolling platform survivor-me-do, with multiple characters to play as, single and co-op play, and some of the hardest-hitting deaths I've experienced in such games" - RockPaperShotgun
Risk of Rain is an action platformer with roguelike elements. With permanent death as a primary feature, players will have to play their best to get as far as possible. Fight on a mysterious planet with randomly spawning enemies and bosses, either alone or with 3 friends in online co-op. With over 100 items at your disposal, you will find the tools you need to find the teleporter back home. Discover a myriad of randomly chosen stages, from the desolate forest to the frozen tundra.
The three main goals for our game are simple:
Design a game that is randomly generated every play-through, to keep replayability high and fresh.
Time = difficulty. The higher the in-game time gets, the harder the difficulty gets. Keeping a sense of urgency keeps the game exciting!
Be enjoyable, regardless of whether you win or lose. No more fussing with complex and non-intuitive gameplay patterns. Players should not blame the game for their loss!
Engage in local and online multiplayer with friends and other players from around the world!
Play and unlock 10 unique characters, from the Commando to the Miner to the Engineer.
Fight through hordes of different enemies and bosses, randomly chosen by the game with random abilities and powers.
Get lost and discover 10 massive levels with different enemies, shrines, and chests on each one!
Recruit the help of a wide variety of drones, from missile drones to healing drones!
Unlock the lore of the game through the item and monster logs!
Unlock new items and characters through difficult achievements to keep the game fresh with each playthrough.
Save your best highscores and stats!
This is great for all those hardcore players who want to challenge themselves. This is a rogue like game packed with action, enemies and abilities. You find coins in canisters or by killing enemies and can spend them on new items. These items each have a unique ability that improves your overall stats. Some of the ability's include flight, double jump, faster attacks, electric attacks and the list goes on and on. You are cast onto an extra terrestrial planet and must do anything to survive the harsh 2d world. This game does not progress like most other games; when you die, you die, and you must restart right back from the start. This game does however gradually get easier or harder, your choice. As you do certain things within the game you unlock newer characters that you can use whenever you want, each one with its own unique abilities. My favourite character would have to be the huntress, she can shoot while running, do several kinds of attacks with her bow and she can even teleport. As well as unlocking new characters you can also find artefacts in each level. Some artefacts can boost damage but lower defence, make enemies more tougher by turning them into their elite counterparts, make only one kind of enemy spawn in each level and many other artefacts that make the game either easier or even, harder. Overall this is a pretty great game and I'd have to give it an 8 and a half out of 10.
Very fun, adictive survival game , beautiful 16 bits style , great for low specs pcs.
This game gives you a bang for your buck, with an already low price of ten dollars and the game being out for a long time you are likely to get a lot of playing time for how little you play. Different every run, a fun kit in each character and a large list of characters in fact. This game gives hours of fun and lets you play with friends with satisfying results.
In risk of rain you are stranded on a planet with the goal to escape. Go alone or with friends fighting through waves of enemies to reach bosses to escape this foreign world. Survive this world with power ups. Power ups can be bought with gold earned by killing monsters or on monsters themselves. With 100+ power ups no two games are exactly the same. This game can easily give you and your friends 40+ hours of enjoyment and at such a low price I highly recommend picking this game up.
It's small and simple but very hard and challenging platform action game. You're traveling through the galaxy and fighting hordes of various monsters. There are dozens of items to pick up, few characters to unlock, and artifacts that can change the rules of game. It's very hard if you're trying to play it alone, but if you have a couple of friends you can try to survive together. Very fun, and challenging game.
