    Moonlighter is a fantastic and unique adventure that can be played for either five minutes or five hours at a time. The gameplay works significantly well on the Nintendo Switch, making it a perfect pick-up-and-play game. Whether you just want the simple serenity of running your own shop, or the big adventure of beating each dungeon, you will find a great time with Moonlighter. You should definitely invest your gold into this title.

    Moonlighter manages to perfectly balance the best bits of Stardew Valley, Dark Souls and Binding of Isaac for a game that just keeps you coming back for more.

    Moonlighter does an excellent job of getting the player to want to delve deeper into the dungeons, since venturing further yields greater rewards. Intricate details and visuals give Moonlighter a memorable style. Enemy designs provide an ample challenge for the risky adventurer, but the story falls short because the narrative isn't memorable.

    Even if it doesn't really shine in any particular aspect, Moonlighter is one of the best hybrid pixelated RPGs you can find on Nintendo Switch.

    Moonlighter is a fun, unique mashup of 2D dungeon crawler meets small business simulator.

    Moonlighter is a wonderfully charming adventure with a gorgeous style. Fans of the genre will have an absolute blast. Managing the store and exploring the many procedural dungeons never grew tiresome and the games upgrade system for both the Town and Will kept me going back for just one more round long into the evenings.

    Moonlighter is a cute -- if not overly repetitive -- dungeon crawler that puts a unique and much-needed spin on roguelikes.

    Fun dungeon crawling, tight mechanics (aside from occasional bugs), great soundtrack / art / atmosphere, and the shopkeeper mechanics is trulyFun dungeon crawling, tight mechanics (aside from occasional bugs), great soundtrack / art / atmosphere, and the shopkeeper mechanics is truly a lot more fun than I thought it was going to be. The world and characters are super charming! If you ever played Stardew Valley and wished there was more to the mine, this will scratch that oddly specific itch. Would recommend to any fan of dungeon crawlers. Expand

    Great game, with great objectives. However the games needs some patching/optimizing, as the game seems to suffer from some insane frame drops.
