Exit The Gungeon: PS4 Review
Developed by Singlecore Games
Released by Devolver Digital
The sequel to Enter The Gungeon, and of a similar tongue-in-cheek ilk to Broforce, this pixel-led shooter is one to put a bullet in sensible gameplay.
Resuming after the first ended, it's up to you to enter a series of random levels, survive the menace and get through to the end with a degree of health in hand, and your safety guaranteed.
With the gungeon collapsing around you, it's up to you to shoot your way out, and have a bit of a blast doing so. Simple yet effective, the pixel-led carnage is a lot of simple bitesize fun that will see you generating new weapons after collecting power ups.
A large jump, combined with the dodge roll from the first game become necessity to help get you through the levels, and while there's nothing specifically different from the first, it's still a great deal of easy fun.
The pixel look is functional and yet also cutesy, and the gameplay is sufficiently strong enough to keep you engaged on the couch, as you scroll your way up the levels.
Ultimately, Exit The Gungeon does what it says on the tin. It won't shatter the mold, but it does more than adequately fill the time.
