Moonlighter is a dungeon crawler with some interesting twists. For one thing you’re playing as a shopkeeper. The loot you’re collecting on your subterranean adventures goes onto your shelves as much as onto your back. And right now you can pick it up for a quarter off its usual price.
The game came out on home platforms a couple of years back, and it’s published by 11bit Studios, who you might know from games like the Anomaly series and This War of Mine. It’s developed by Spanish indie team Digital Sun.
The more goods you sell, the more money you can spend on upgrading your town, adding new services that are going to help you out – like a blacksmith, a potion seller and more. The pocket version features both touch and swipe and virtual joystick controls, depending on what tickles your fancy.
Basically there’s loads to love about Moonlighter. It’s fast and fun, but it’s got more than enough depth to keep you entertained for hours on end. It’s not your traditional dungeon crawler, but it’s familiar enough you can jump straight in and start enjoying the experience.
