Skip it. The production values are good, but there is this giant gaping hole in the middle of the gameplay they have no idea how to fix. Just play BoI or Nuclear Throne instead.

It bills itself as an action rogue-like, but the problem is you don't get stuff. It is ridiculously stingy with the drops. They patched it to be less miserly, but it is still very stingy. So it ends up being a game about cool guns where you never get to use the cool guns because there aren't enough of them.

As a result to end up trudging through the early levels using your default weapons many times. The game also basically demands you beat the bosses without getting hit, but they have huge life bars and take a lot of bullets to kill. Due to the game being so stingy with drops you need that extra drop from perfecting a boss early on.

This is a huge problem for a rogue-like because there are really only a few bosses per floor. Every single run starts the same for the first 2-3 floors. Instead of each run being unique with game changing items like Binding, each run is the same with you using your default pistol to trudge through eh early levels because the gun you got either sucks or doesn't have enough ammo and you only got one gun drop.

Go look at Dead cells instead, that is actually good. This game seriously sells mostly off its trailer and people praising it because they've played it. Most of positive reviews it got were incredibly shallow.

If you want a hardcore bullet hell game, there are better ones. If you want an action rogue-like there are better ones. EtG is way down the list.

I have EtG... the only actual game DLC I think is still the MTX Gun for $0.99, the rest of the DLC is soundtracks, comics, etc.

The game itself is good, but I have not put a ton of time into it. I find Nuclear Throne to be better overall, TormentorXPunisher to be more exciting, and Nex Machina to be more fun. All of a sudden there were a lot of Smash TV/Robotron clones/ripoffs, with some single life flavor thrown in.

I'd wait for a sale, Alamar.
