    There’s just so much that Snack World does right for a dungeon crawler that even without having any sort of serious story it manages to be one of the best in the genre with the sheer fun variety it offers. Anyone looking for a brand new adventuring title should give Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold their time as it’s surprisingly fantastic.

    Snack World: Dungeon Explorers is a game made with undoubted craft, full of humor and ready to pinch the strings of the collector hidden in each of us. The simple but not trivial action and the large number of secondary missions are, however, tormented by a rhythm that tends to weary in the long run and a lively, but technically only discreet, technical component. Remaining in the culinary sphere, Snake World won't be a chef's bite to eat, but if you're hungry you can tastefully fulfill it.

    There's a lot that I wanted to like about Snack World. Lite-dungeon crawling, a deep loot system, colourful visuals, quirky 'meta' humour – all the right ingredients are here for a staple dish in my personal video game cuisine. While it all looked great on the menu, though, what has eventually been plated and served is more like fast food than fine dining. It's still enjoyable, but it hasn't been made with the same love and care and can make you feel a bit uneasy.

    It can be good, simple fun when it wants to be and even in its most aggravating moments, it manages to be carried by a cast of entertaining characters in a bizarre, charming world.

    Snack World really isn't my thing. As much as I am a fan of Level-5, the pitch of this one is out, and as such, too much of it falls flat. It's a satirical game that's trying too hard and if it was funny, then the jokes it makes would be directed at its own faults as a game. It's a workable dungeon crawler without being inspired, but unlike the rest of Level-5's library, this one is focused on being attractive to one demographic at the expense of just about everyone else. Where most other Level-5 games are a joy and delight, this one really felt too much like a slog.

    There is no shortcut to boss doors, nor an opportunity to save outside them--you must traverse the preceding dungeon in its entirety again, which begins to disrupt and destroy the decent dungeon-crawling. As a result, despite the fact Snack World is initially most exciting when you're exploring the depths of its dungeons, that excitement is soon painfully wrenched into tedium. This phenomenon seems to permeate Snack World in its entirety: although it's exciting and captivating early on, each of its constituents become tedious before long, and all of its strengths are weathered away by repetition and a sense of feeling incomplete.

    Honestly had to make an account just to review this game because of the lack of attention its getting. Go out today and buy this game!

    Very fun in small burst. Nothing about it is fantadtic, nothing is terrible. O.k. I lied, the camera is terrible some of the time. If youVery fun in small burst. Nothing about it is fantadtic, nothing is terrible. O.k. I lied, the camera is terrible some of the time. If you want a super entertaining grindfest of an action rpg dungeon crawler with instanced zones and a mediocre hub world with a large dose of pre-teen level humor, this is a safe bet. Be warned, the game is NOT kid safe unless your kids are allowed to rub feces on themselves, say @$$ and Goddamit that is. The game is actually a 7/10 but since metacritic allows people to just do review bombs, this might negate some of the idiots. Expand

    An amazing dungeon crawler filled with Dad puns! I love it!

    Random loot, no split screen coop. One piece of advice, save before doing a pick

I think the person who invented the words or decided on them was mega high, but the game is a lot of fun. It's not high speed or stressful and it's kind of like a monster hunter with good load times and much lighter in terms of materials. I'd really recommend it to anyone who wants a game with a lot of playability and relax. Expand

    Such a fun and robust dungeon crawler. There's so much to do. The loot system is like a combo of a typical dungeon crawler; gathering weaponsSuch a fun and robust dungeon crawler. There's so much to do. The loot system is like a combo of a typical dungeon crawler; gathering weapons and some armour, mixed in with Monster Hunter; gathering tons of crafting materials to make armour, lots of helpful healing items, and the progression system is similar, plus it's randomized. Like any game of its genre, there is grinding to be done. Crafting is neat and you can upgrade your gear and get a lot of different equipment. Really adore the artstyle, the jokes, and the dungeons are many and fun to explore. Love the concept of the Snack buddies you can collect as helpful sidekicks (definitely recommend a healer type to get you more quest chests at the end). I encountered what seems to be a very rare bug where a random loot item will spawn outside of the dungeon map making it impossible to get. Happened to me only once so far in 20+ hours of playing. Overall definitely I recommend this gem of a dungeon crawler. Expand

    Censored/modified translation.

    If you care about this game, just get the Japanese or Asian version.
