Hammerwatch – Mini Review!

What is it?

Hammerwatch is a fun and quirky retro adventure game. You venture through dungeons and caves alike, killing monsters, uncovering secrets, grabbing gold as you go and if you get bored of the included campaigns you can even make your own in the editor!



Music is awesome.
Pixel art.
Steam workshop support.
Simple controls.
Levels aren’t scaled based on number of players.
Levels can feel a little too long.


It has decent replay value. All playable classes feel distinct and the upgrade system is simple but well thought out. It’s something to pick up and to put down at your own pace. It’s definitely a game for more casual play however this doesn’t stop it from being one of the better retro dungeon crawlers. Great with a few friends with some time to kill.
