Meterofall: Krumit’s tale is a roguelike deck building game that takes you on an exciting adventure to battle and defeat evil creatures.
In Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale, there are five characters you can start a run with, all of which have unique items, abilities, and perks. You have to make your way through each dungeon in the form of a 3×3 board. A new random tile drops down onto the board each time you clear one, either by defeating enemies or acquiring items and abilities. You basically have to defeat the creatures using items, spells, and abilities that you acquire throughout the dungeon. Once all the enemies are defeated, you have the opportunity to pick additional perks, add new cards to your deck, swap out cards, and then move on to the next dungeon. Whenever your run ends, you also earn experience for the character you play as, which can lead to unlocking even more cards to use with them in the future.
Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale is very much like other roguelike deck builders, working with each character’s unique playstyle to build a deck and complete each dungeon. Where Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale really distinguishes itself are its dungeons. Each one is a box filled with a combination of tiles, representing enemies, items, spells, and abilities.
The combat system in Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale allows you to use weapons to increase damage, and armor to block. You can stun the enemy if your armor is equal or higher than the enemy’s attack, which prevents them from attacking for a turn. Enemies can be given statuses such as burn, freeze, and poison, and some have special abilities and armor. They key to beating a dungeon is building a solid deck and managing your gold and health.
Every character in Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale has their own playstyle, which makes them interact differently with dungeons. For example, Bruno is a warrior, he is focused on using equipment, such as weapons and armor in direct combat with his enemies. And Muldorf, a necromancer who summons powerful minions to fight for him. Each character in the game completely changes the way you play the game, which creates a decent learning curve and a decent amount of replayability.
If all of that weren’t enough, Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale also features different game modes, and daily challenge that has a different set of modifiers which tweak the rules of the game in radical ways. Playing these different game modes can shift the gameplay significantly, which ensures that you will never run out of things to do.
Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale manages to create a gaming experience that’s unique and challenging. Its gameplay is composed of simple rules, and engaging action. The game seems to be a lot more puzzle focused than other games in the genre making it a worthwhile addition to the genre.
