Dare ye enter, the Crypt of the Necrodancer.
That rhymes, and why shouldn’t it as it’s catchy and damn right funny. Hi, this is Rusty, it’s after my bed time and I need to share with you Crypt of the Necrodancer. If you like rogue-type games, dancing, killing, looting and tooting, this game is for you. Actually, just pick one of those that you like and you will like the game regardless.
The Crypt, where time and time again, you’ll get whipped!
Hey, when in Rome, do what romans do like have massive orgies, eat oxs tongue, drink until you spew, then drink more, have slaves. My partner will not let me do any of that anymore (or ever), but she still insists that somehow, she is treated like a slave. She is not, and I love here to bits. Hi honey. Yeah, anyway, enter the Crypt of the Necrodancer. Premise is simple, you can only move, collect objects, use objects and attack to the beat of the music. Miss a beat and you don’t get the money bonus and the movement/attack is penalised. That’s it, that’s the game. Move through the dungeon, kill things, get things, have fun, get whipped time and time again. Watch my video below. I was only supposed to play for a couple of minutes, but it went for a while. Addiction, it never changes.
So, this Crypt game is one of those games where you just get better?
So if you have watched me play above in my top form at 2am in the morning, then you may have noticed that you die a lot. Yes, this is correct, but you get better everytime you play. Sometimes it is good to have a break from those games, but with Crypt of the Necrodancer, the breaks are short in between and you only need to play for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. So it’s a great game to kill time, and to get further along as you go.
So if you are into games that you can just jump into and out of, love roguelikes, then give it a go. I quite possibly washaving a quite a few drinks by this 2am stage, and this just added to the whole boppiness of the bopping tunes. Well worth it, 85 rubber chickens out of 100, not that that means anything.
