Lately, I’ve been getting into the roguelite genre. It’s the characteristically tight gameplay loop and the fact that every playthrough varies heavily each and every time that drive my interest in this genre.
Skul: The Hero Slayer is a 2D platforming action roguelite developed by SouthPAW Games and published by NEOWIZ. On the face of it, the game clearly has a lot of polish to its combat as well as a strong slew of neat, interesting power-ups.
The greater question is a matter of longevity. As a roguelite title, does Skul: The Hero Slayer manage to provide enough content and replayability to hold up in a genre exemplified by repeat playthroughs?
Starting off, the story is about a little skeleton named Skul. He serves the Demon army and sets off to save the Demon King against all odds. The aggressive human kingdom of Carleon has kidnapped the king in a large scale war.
The story is fairly intriguing albeit a bit predictable. It slowly unravels as the player defeats each boss. Mostly, I enjoyed the storybook feeling it gave off as well as the charming cast of characters, including a huge death knight that enjoys sewing and is afraid of fighting.
The 2D platforming combat is fairly reminiscent of the old MMORPG, MapleStory, but with a greater freedom of movement. Enemies tend to stack over each other, adding to the chaos and as a playthrough progresses, the messier things become due to all the special effects flooding the screen.
Sadly, this makes it hard to really focus on dodging attacks as there’s just so much going on. Skul is capable of double-jumping and dashing, setting the game at a fast pace. Past that, the combat provides a fairly nuanced action experience.
