Heroes of Loot isn't your average dungeon-crawler.
For one thing, the randomly generated subterranean caverns you explore here are often filled to the brim with monsters. For another, rather than hacking and slashing, you're spraying fantasy bullets at them.
Heroes of Loot is dressed as a roguelike, then, but underneath the clothing it's a fast-paced twin-stick shooter with as much in common with the deep space antics of Geometry Wars as with the 8-bit fantasy games to which OrangePixel is so obviously paying loving homage.
Beneath both of those genre shawls, though, a brilliantly addictive game hides. Heroes of Loot boasts both the immediacy of a shooter and the loot-grabbing, one-dungeon-farther thrust of the finest roguelikes.
A great way to spend a few hours. If you like games that ooze fun from every pore, you should definitely pick up Heroes of Loot
