Crawl is the local multiplayer dungeon crawler where your friends control the monsters! It’s a bullet-hell beat-em-up meets old-school RPG, in an arcadey party-game for up to 4 players.

One player is the hero, exploring a randomly generated dungeon full of traps and monsters - all controlled by the other players. If you slay the hero you take their place and it’s your turn to crawl! Then it's a race to gain enough XP and loot to reach the final battle, where it's all on one as the other players collectively control the hulking final boss!

There was this DOS adventure game back in 1994 called "Ecstatica". In one part of the game there was a wizard that stood at the gate of his tower. If you get too close he would cast a spell on you that would turn the player into a frog. And from that moment till you find a way to remove the curse you would have to hop around as a frog. Which was impressively well implemented into the game. This video reminded me of that moment in Ecstatica.
