Our point-of-sale at work continues to bedevil me, but hasn’t stopped me from checking out “Brimstone – An Action RPG” today. It has a lot going for it (not the least of which is a name that leaves absolutely no doubt what the game is about).
Multiplayer is the order of the day here. Up to 8 players, in fact, both online and system link. Offline solo play is here too, for those who prefer that. So, whether multiplayer or solo, what kind of game are you getting?
Why a randomnly-generated dungeon crawl action RPG of course. Tonnes of enemiy, loot, and level combinations means plenty of replay value for fans of the genre. But best of all, the game is built around a fog-of-war mechanic that denies you knowledge of what isn’t immediately within your line-of-sight. That alone makes this an 80 Microsoft Point no-brainer.
Here’s what the developer (Punchbag Entertainment) has to say about the game:
“Brimstone is a top-down, Hack’n’Slash Role Playing Game for up to 8 players. Procedurally generated dungeons, a huge variety of monsters and endless variations of loot ensure that no two sessions will ever be the same! Download the free trial now to try it for yourself!”
