Dungeon-Crawling First Person Shooting at its finest! Fast-paced combat! Dozens of perks, spells and enemies! Level ups! Random Dungeons! Traps! Badass bosses! Carrots! Ziggurat is the best combination of First Person Shooter and Rogue-LITE you have ever seen.
Become a neophyte sorcerer, and get ready for your rite of passage: Enter the labyrinth and face dangerous challenges to prove your worth and become a powerful wizard!
The game focuses on fast-paced first person shooting, with an old-school vibe, and updated handling and game mechanics. Dungeon crawling and RPG/Roguelike elements are added into the mix, resulting in a fun, challenging and varied game, with lots of content to discover.
Fight almighty bosses, get through rooms filled with traps, and treasures that may help you in your journey... Each game is a whole new experience!
Unlike most Rogue-thingies, on Ziggurat your combat skills will be the most important asset to keep advancing. Leveling up and randomly generated content is there to improve variety and make each game different, not to make the game a roll dice or an unbearable grind.
Most perks are designed to change the way you have to play or the weapons you'll want to use. Do you want more speed in exchange for less health, or maybe is better to have mana regeneration? Increase drop rate, or refill ammo here and now? No number game here, simple and direct choices.
We've also ensured that, as a proper FPS game, the experience is quick and direct. There's no inventory to manage or the need to compare two almost equal item drops, just weapon selection, and mana/health are usually the bargaining chip.
A whole arsenal of magic and alchemic weapons will be at your disposal. Wreak havoc among your enemies, but watch your mana reserves or you might regret it later!
Magic staves, spellbooks, magic wands... dozens of weapons with different attack strategies that help keeping the game fresh!
As a huge fan of Heretic and Hexen, two of the games I played most on DWANGO back in the day, I am always excited to see a First Person Medieval/Magic shooter game. When you add in the roguelike elements of unlocks, procedural generated levels, and permadeath you have won my heart forever. In Ziggurat's every level and every play through will be different. You start with access to two of the 16 characters. Each character has their own personal "stats." You complete in game challenges to unlock the other 14. The game's combat mechanic is based around moving fast, Unreal Tournament fast, and using one of four weapon types. You start with a basic wand, that is slightly different for every character. You find along the way spells, staves, and alchemy devices (10 different per category). You will also find/unlock and can use one of 17 amulets that give benefits like increased XP gain and poison clouds. As you level you will be able to unlock perks. These perks can be active or passive which you get to select to customize your character to your play style and they greatly increase survivability. There are multitudes of different enemies and room types. Some rooms may even randomly have benefits or curses. If you love fast paced shooters, roguelikes, RPG elements, or a combination there of you will enjoy Ziggurat.
Ziggurat is very good surprise among First Person Rogue-like games. In this game we play a sorcerer who is sent to explore the dreadful Ziggurat. As usual with Rogue-like games, the environment is randomly generated and the game is very hard. You're supposed to die. It's just a matter of time. Ziggurat's gameplay feels a lot like fast FPS like Quake or DOOM. It is very fun and the game looks pretty good for an 3D indie title. The artstyle is a bit too cartoony though. It's a well executed game that deserves to be played a lot.
Ziggurat is a decent game where you need to get as far as you can into the titular Ziggurat using magical spells and weapons against all manner of creatures, from the comical to the hideous. There really is no story to speak of in this game, but the focus is on using your weapons to kill enemies however you can while avoiding their attacks, all while unlocking new skills, passives, and characters that you adapt to your favored playstyle. What you find is mostly up to chance, meaning that the weapons and how they work with your skills can either turn the game into easy mode or make it so difficult you wish you were playing Dark Souls. If you like games like The Binding of Isaac but wish they had 3D graphics, Ziggurat is for you.
