Most of us will remember the classic “dungeon crawler” games that began popping up during the 80’s, such as Megami Tensei and Phantasy Star. Many of these games are now considered classics, well-known and often released on many major consoles. Red Temple aims to be one such game.

Though I’m not entirely sure what the game is based on, the theme behind it is simple. Each level (and there are quite a lot) is filled with obstacles, such as doors and walls, objects to interact with like keys and electrical circuits, things to pick up and collect and of course enemies to battle, each with their own unique characteristics. The game play is very similar throughout, and there is a shop to purchase items like health restoring food and weapon upgrades. There are eight in-game achievements, from completing story mode to collecting all characters. None of these are easy to obtain, but they provide a fun challenge for anyone who is playing the game. Each playable character has different stats and of course there is the hard-to-get super character with very high stats.

Red Temple is a brilliant play for anyone who wishes to play a simple game. It isn’t easy, and so provides hours on hours of fun.
