    Don’t let Polygod’s low-poly aesthetic fool you - this is no amateur hour shooter experience. With seven realms to explore (each with their own unique environmental motifs, enemy types and bosses), the game’s procedural nature and old-school mechanics make for a frightening deep source of replay value that harkens back to the good old days of Quake. The shot delay takes a lot longer to overcome on Switch, mainly because this is the kind of game that greatly benefits from the precision of mouse control, but persevere and there’s a speedrunning treat that’ll answer your prayers with violence.

    Not the best FPS roguelike due it's control problems and the difficulty spikes randomly shown. Also, it's not the prettiest game out...

    While there are some interesting aspects of Polygod to explore, I more often wanted to just stop playing than go back in to explore more.

    Polygod definitely holds some potential, but is lacklustre in its current state. The often unstable frame-rate, unwieldy gyro controls, and lack of polish in general, hurts the experience considerably. Its mechanics do feel unique enough to keep experimenting with, and there's plenty of replay value, but there's so much that brings it down. Fans of first-person shooters will likely get some enjoyment out of it, but it's otherwise hard to say that it's worth checking out.

    Incredibly unique, fast paced, difficult FPS with MP, COOP and split screen. The game play is reminiscent of old classics such as Binding ofIncredibly unique, fast paced, difficult FPS with MP, COOP and split screen. The game play is reminiscent of old classics such as Binding of Isaac, Quake and Doom, and yet it's a completely new experience. Crazy combo power-ups, wicked audio and brilliant graphic design make this new rogue like completely compelling! Expand
