There’s a retro-styled roguelike dungeon crawler (stay with me!) called Tangeledeep [official site] coming to Steam Early Access later this month, and I’m digging my first look at it. Developers Impact Gameworks announced the Steam move this week with a new trailer that features some excellent music and tonnes of character customisation. But it’s the combat system that’s got me interested.
It’s turn-based, but everything happens quickly – by which I mean that you’ll be constantly shifting from spot to spot, slashing your sword and activating abilities while trying to react to what enemies are doing during their own, rapid turns, which happen at the same time as yours. At first look the system reminds me of the one in Loot Rascals, which I got on with very well.
