    Children of Morta is a handsomely crafted dungeon crawling effort with a stirring narrative that freshens things up on account of its familial theme and structure. The gorgeous presentation and resolutely solid hack and slash beats are supported by some surprising mechanics and flourishes that help to ensure that Children of Morta is one of the most pleasant surprises of the year.

    The family that slays together, stays together. When it comes to striking a balance between raucous gameplay and dramatic discourse, Children of Morta is an absolute gem.

    Children of Morta is a turning point for Dead Mage Studios, and from now on expectations are gonna be much higher from them. Definitely one of the best indie games of the year.

    It's not perfect; load times are lengthy, text is painfully small, and there are some unusual graphical glitches here and there. However, Children of Morta is overall a great success, and manages to forge a unique identity.

    Taking its inspirations both from Diablo and rogue-lite games, Children of Morta has a nice story to tell, and shows a pretty face with its stunning pixel art visuals.

    While the hack and slash gameplay of each individual character is somewhat simple, the variance between each of the six is substantial, keeping things fairly fresh throughout the many runs. Additionally, skill trees and constant stat improvements grant a sense of empowerment and progression. It may not upheave the mechanical norms of roguelikes, but Children of Morta does a good job of weaving storytelling into the well-worn tropes of the genre to create something that feels unique.

    Children of Morta may feature rewarding character progression but its combat-heavy campaign begins to feel like a chore after a while.

    I absolutely loved this game. You start out fairly weak and feel like the odds are completely stacked against you, but you gradually learn howI absolutely loved this game. You start out fairly weak and feel like the odds are completely stacked against you, but you gradually learn how to evade attacks and use your abilities effectively. Just as you start to feel comfortable, the difficulty climbs again keeping things fun. Depending on the items you find, you'll have runs where you die immediately and runs where you feel like an unstoppable god, but either way you make some progress toward improving your skills and unlocking the other family members. The story is simple but binds it all together in a way that made me care about the characters and their fate.

    My suggestion, as others have said: take your time with it. It is short, but a fair length for the price. The best $20 I've spent on a game. 10/10, wish I wipe my memory and play it again fresh.

    Very solid hack'n'slash. I like how you develop characters as you unlock perks not only for selected warriors, but also for the entire family.Very solid hack'n'slash. I like how you develop characters as you unlock perks not only for selected warriors, but also for the entire family. And keep in mind the hack'n'slash battles are in fact part of the more classic action RPG. Good game. The only con is that few cutscenes didn't have narrator's voice-over. That's a bug they could fix. Expand

    Très bon rogue lite,hack slash,action rpg,qui a le mérite de nous transporter avec son histoire et ses graphismes pixel art au **** oignons.Très bon rogue lite,hack slash,action rpg,qui a le mérite de nous transporter avec son histoire et ses graphismes pixel art au **** oignons.
    Suivre cette famille à été un réel enchantement. Les seuls points négatifs sont le manque de suivi par rapport à la version PC,et,la difficulté un peu basse pour un jeu du genre.
