Best Indie Games of May 2017
STRAFE blends the FPS and roguelike genres together to provide incredibly fast-paced, compelling action. STRAFE prides itself on its gore, with “UBER-GORE technology” resulting in the guts of your enemies being strewn throughout the game’s various different stages. It’s a crushingly difficult challenge at times, but you’ll always find yourself coming back for more, just to see if you can get that little bit further.
The game doesn’t make this easy, though, changing up its maps every single time you die. Powerups, enemies, monster closets, and the general layout changes each and every time, making it incredibly easy to get lost or overwhelmed by monsters. If you’re looking for fast-paced action and a serious challenge, STRAFE has it in droves. Be warned, though, the difficulty can be pretty intense, so the game is certainly not for the faint-hearted.
