Slay monsters. Defeat epic bosses. Collect magical gear. Become a Warlock and save the universe.
Warlocks vs Shadows is an action RPG/brawler game set in a fantasy world invaded by shadow monsters. Playing as an incredibly powerful Warlock and, by using magic skills and weapons, you fight through hordes of enemies. The game places great focus on co-op and versus play between players, where you can fight in 1-4 player DeathMatch or in teams of 1v1 or 2v2.
In the singleplayer/co-op campaign you have to clear your way through 5 different dimensions with unique enemies, bosses, and environments. You level up your character by slaying evil monsters and getting better and better items.

Warlocks vs Shadow looks nice at first glance, but in the end turns out to be unpolished and not really worth your time. Game is based on basic wave action (defeat wave after wave) with some small RPG elements like earning new skills and loot. You have many heroes you can play and they play differently, so this is nice thing. You can equip them with new gear into 5 slots and have 4 active skills at any time. So there is nice variety. BUT. First of all - game is very repetitive - you do everything the same all the time. It also has horrible UI design that is missing critical information and is placed weirdly. You cannot for example easily compare different loot elements. Game difficulty is a problem as well - lvl 1,2 will be easy, 3 will suddenly become insanely hard, while 4 will be easy again etc. It's not consistent and doesn't allow you to learn how to play. Controls are not precise and half of the time you're not fighting enemy but your own character movement. All in all - it's a nice idea for a game, but it didn't get polished or tested enough and was released way to soon (as well as development got dropped - no new patches) to justify a purchase.
