Crown Trick is an inventive and beautifully animated turn-based roguelike dungeon crawling RPG where you can combine various elements the world is made up of to devastating effect.
Previously featured on Alpha Beta gamer back in May, Crown Trick is a turn based roguelike adventure where you have lots of options available to you ad you battle your way through it’s monster-filled procedurally generated dungeons. As you progress you’ll level up and collect lots of cool loot as in a traditional roguelike RPG, but to be truly successful you’ll have to work out the intricacies of the different elements that make up the environment and how to use them to your advantage.
There are five different elements found naturally in the environment – Water, fire, ice, wind, poison and oil. Obviously you’ll want to stay clear of fire and poison, but you can lure enemies into them to cause damage. You can also combine elements to great effect – such as setting fire to pools of oil or using a bolt of electricity to electrocute enemies in a pool of water.
It’s an interesting take on the traditional dungeon crawling roguelike RPG that’s not just about stats and loot – you actually think and plan your way through the dungeons to use their layout and elemental hazards to your advantage. Sign up for the Alpha to see how you fare.
