Some time back Soldak Entertainment make Depths of Peril. I reviewed the game when I was at our new acquisition (Generation: Gamerz) and I loved it. Soldak had done something that we hadn’t seen in awhile and that was simply a massive focus on the gameplay and fun factor without having to push today’s hardware to the limit to show you the graphics.
The latest from Soldak Entertainment is an old school top-down oblique angle hack-n-slash. When I say hack-n-slash I really mean it. There’s nothing in the way of RPG per se. You don’t really interact with NPC’s. Those interactions don’t dictate the outcome of the game. No, this is simply a “you versus them.” So grab up your weapon, buff up your character and let’s start dungeon delving in Kivi’s Underworld.
The story goes that a mining expedition ventures into unknown territory and accidentally opens a path to the deadly Dark Elves...oh hell! Kivi alone survives to tell the tale but without proof his pleas fall on deaf ears so of course you’re on your own in the beginning.
