Pawesome Review: Enter the Gungeon

Enter the Gungeon is a shoot-em-up video game about traveling through different chambers and defeating a multitude of enemies. The game was developed by Dodge Roll and published by Developer Digital, and it is available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, Steam and more for about fifteen dollars. The game is notorious for its difficulty and harsh punishments for being defeated. In this review, I will cover multiple aspects of this game and give you an in depth look at all of them. Let’s start with characters.

Characters

Enter the Gungeon starts you out with five characters, like the Pilot, the Hunter, or the Marine. Each character has a different signature weapon that they carry with them no matter what, but as you progress through the chambers you can unlock more. There are lots of different enemies that can be encountered in the dungeon, as well. There are walking bullets, poisonous slimes, evil birds, floating books that shoot letters, and plenty more. Every character also comes with an exclusive item, too. The Pilot, for example, carries a paper clip that he can use to pick locks on chest. There are even secret characters that need certain circumstances complete to be unlocked.

Chambers

There are five chambers in the Enter the Gungeon campaign, and an extra sixth

chamber after that. Each room spawns a hoard of enemies for you to defeat so that you can move to the next room. Every chamber contains at least two chest rooms. These chests can give you new items and guns to prepare you for tougher fights. There is also one shop per chamber. Here you can buy things with the currency you get from eliminating enemies. At the end of each chamber, you will need to fight a boss. These fights are extra long and difficult, so come prepared.

   Difficulty

Enter the Gungeon is unbelievably difficult. Each time you get eliminated, you’ll have to start from chamber one. At times you will be swamped with enemies, and you will need to find cover quickly or else you will be obliterated by projectiles. The bosses are even tougher. They have much more health than traditional enemies and they tend to throw a ridiculous amount of bullets towards you. Playing with a friend on two-player can make the experience easier, however. The game isn’t very long on it’s own, but the difficulty will have you playing for hours. This is a game I definitely recommend picking up.
