Description

Help Tama to save Koko using the powers of the forbidden Sword of the Necromancer. Turn your foes into allies and reach the depths of the Necromancer’s dungeon. Defeat the guardians to gain enough power to bring Koko back from the dead, no matter the cost.

What would you do to bring back someone you love? Sword of the Necromancer is a dungeon-crawler action RPG with Rogue-like elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you. Turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help Tama reach the dungeon’s depths in order to gain enough power to bring Koko back from the dead.

Gather a little army of monsters, equip yourself with weapons and relics and level up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your objective. Sword of the Necromancer is inspired by Rogue-like games like Enter the Gungeon, 2D Zelda games like A Link to the Past and monster-catching mechanics like those from Azure Dreams. The aim is to create a fluid battle system, with head-to-head combat as its main focus while leaning on monster summons for special actions and attacks.

Reviews

 

With nothing to offer besides some pleasant storytelling, we cannot recommend Sword of the Necromancer on any meaningful level. It’s not horrible, but it’s bereft of both meaningful content and any manner of unique execution.

 

Sword of the Necromancer feels more like a proof of concept than a full-fledged experience. The idea of using former enemies as allies is a great one, but its shoddy execution and lack of content hamstrings that premise quickly. People who are looking for another exciting roguelike game after finishing Hades should keep on looking.

 

Put on top a really dramatic and passionate story with excellent voice acting (Tama’s VA n a i l e d it), some really cool bosses, and you have a pretty sweet game that I recommend you check out if you dig dungeon crawler rogue-lites and at the same time want something different.
