Judge feedback

Judge feedback is anonymous and shown in a random order.

  • Zealot's Curse is a fast-paced twin-stick shooter with a rad phosphorescent aesthetic. The controls are slick and intuitive and it's easy to pick up and play. Although the maps are procedurally generated they tend to be very similar and there are no new challenges to face as you advance through the floors. As a result it doesn't feel particularly "roguelikey", but it's still a lot of fun to blast away at stuff. 

  • The game is primitive arcade shooter prototype. No abilities, very basic enemies. I really liked the visual style, but gameplay is easy and the only time my character was loosing HP right after the start of the level surrounded by enemies. While levels are random, this randomness have no much sense. They are very samey.

Lovely graphics! I included it in my 7DRL Challenge compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)
