About Vampire Survivors
Vampire Survivors is a gothic roguelike game that lets you slay thousands of enemies and offers exploration and encourages players to uncover secrets. The enemies are fierce and the game push players to the edge when it comes to survival. Made by Poncle, the game offers a simplistic gameplay mechanic and manages to make it very engaging and warrants multiple playthroughs and replayability.
There are few games in the market that manages to pull off the ingenuity and simplistic approach that lets you change your pattern and equip new skills and weapon to fight the stronger monsters. The game shows promise and given just how amazing the early access version is, we can’t help but envision what the full release of the game will be like.
The gameplay of Vampire Survivor is simple, all you have to do is pick your character, map, and kill enemies. All the attacks are automatic so all you have to do is focus on moving, but here’s where it gets interesting. Enemies get stronger with each wave which requires new weapons and skills to beat them. As you progress and level up, you get to choose new weapons, items, and skills. You can also buy buffs and use arcanas, the tougher bosses you beat, the more you get to level up your weapons instantly.
