Not bad for an alpha. Pretty fun. Nice graphic design (childlike) and decent tunes. Needs more in terms of gameplay.
Cons:- limited weapons and items, some are not so practical.
- not much replay value
- chests with gold are not very rewarding, compared to the rarity of keys, i don't really see the benefit of that mechanic.
- the time between death and starting a new game needs to be shortened, I don't want to add my name to the board every time I fail.
I picked this up as of Alpha 1.8 and I think in its current state it was a lot of fun. It felt like the right combination between Robotron, Smash TV and even Binding of Isaac.
The graphics and overall art style are nice, the levels had enough design to keep them from looking bland and only a small amount of the monsters were recycled keeping it from feeling stale. The music and sound were good, but it needs some more variety in sound effects.
Overall it still needs some more content updates and balancing but it was worth the purchase as is for me and worth a thumbs up on Steam Greenlight as well.
