An amazing combination of rogue-like, platformer and dodge-roll, Exit the Gungeon has been a great play from Apple Arcade. Too bad that once I got the hang of it the randomly generated stages were not at all challenging anymore (and the game’s “Beast Mode” did not seem to have brought further thrill).
That said, the game has been a hook and a lot of fun. The random terrain and boss system, the guns, and the rhythm of each stage all contribute.
And at its core lies what rogue-like games offer: you don’t accumulate assets and better equipments and stronger stats; instead, you become a better player through each play.
