Gallery of the Day8 Indie Metroidvanias To Scratch Your Exploration ItchGallery of the Day - RSS 2.0
Taking cues from the Cthulhu mythos, Sundered throws your heroine into a nightmarish scenario that's part rogue-like, part Metroidvania. Hordes of monsters spawn randomly in the depths, and areas are reconfigured after every death and revisit. But, certain special locations always remain the same.
Like other indie Metroidvanias, this one focuses on combat, but exploration is key too. As you progress through giant rooms that change shape as you explore, you'll also unlock new methods of traversal or powers to break through special barriers. Certain rooms always remain the same, and bosses can be tackled in any order, making this spooky rogue-like lean more toward the Metroidvania spectrum.
