Day two of Horror Week on the Never Ending Backlog podcast is here! Today we are reviewing a new favorite of ours, Crawl, by developer, Powerhoof. Games like Crawl made us really appreciate that we are hosting this podcast. It is the purpose we were hoping for. Beyond great interviews with developers, we are able to discover excellent indie games that deserve to be supported, and played!
So what is Crawl? According to Steam:
Crawl is the local multiplayer dungeon crawler where your friends control the monsters! Battle through dungeons and power up your hero - if a friend kills you they take your place and it’s their turn to crawl. It's a race to gain enough XP and loot to take on the hulking final boss!
Crawl does a great job at couch co-op on the computer. It's great played with friends, everybody has a chance to win, and overall it just seems like an extremely balanced game. If you are a fan of pixelized arcade games like Gauntlet, then Crawl is right up your alley.
