Developer Powerhoof’s insane sword-action dungeon crawler game; Crawl launches today on various consoles and PC formats. If you ever felt like you wanted a pre-Nintendo arcade graphical style game that includes a bloody non-stop action, well this game has it all. With the likeness of games such as Pitfall—yet redux to a more modern visual playstyle, this game is sure to be worth the bucks spent.

Never heard of Crawl? No problem: here’s an overview, courtesy of its Steam page:

Crawl is the local multiplayer dungeon crawler where your friends control the monsters! It’s bullet-hell beat-em-up meets old-school RPG, in an arcadey party-game for up to 4 players.

One player is the hero, exploring a randomly generated dungeon full of traps and monsters – all controlled by the other players. If you slay the hero you take their place and it’s your turn to crawl! Then it’s a race to gain enough XP and loot to reach the final battle, where it’s all on one as the other players collectively control the hulking final boss!
