  • Fanta Exotic: “Now I’ve been on Steam for ages and played all kinds of things – Titan Quest, Grim Dawn and hundreds of other games like Diablo 1, 2, 3. And what do I randomly find in my library here? I honestly can’t remember how I got into this game, anyway it’s the best hack ‘n’ slash game I’ve played since Diablo 2 (via Steam).”
  • Badseb: “Behind little promising information […] and the unspectacular graphics, a small pearl is hidden. Under the not particularly pretty robe is a genuine Hack’n’Slay, which turns out to be quite complex on closer inspection. […] All in all a very good and comprehensive game, which is hidden under the less than splendid dress of a 2D Esports Extras game (via Steam).”
  • surikum: “Really a nice game. An addicting hack and slay. You can tell the attention to detail. I recommend it for genre fans (via Steam)!”
  • Primus: “Every A-RPG developer should be forced to play this game. It has everything you need and everything you expect. You won’t regret it if you are Diablo/ PoE/ Grimdawn or whatever fans. Because apart from the Esports Extras art graphics, there is nothing to complain about, absolutely nothing (via Steam)!”
