Optimistically billed by its developer as a mix between the legendary Diablo and indie darling The Binding of Isaac, Hero Siege at least lays its cards on the table before you start playing.
From the moment you select your character type - limited in this initial build to Viking, Pyromancer, and Marksman - it's made perfectly clear that your aim here is to kill enemies and collect loot.
Beyond that, there's little to report - which will be music to the ears of those who like their RPGs to be as action-packed as possible.
Your warrior valiantly stalks through a range of pixel-heavy environments dealing with waves of monsters, only pausing to interact with parts of the scenery, scoop up the aforementioned gold, and acquire magical potions, which can augment the power of the user.
Well presented and action packed, Hero Siege has the potential to be something special, but it's poorly balanced and clearly needs more work
