Curse of the Dead Gods is a hack'n'slash made in the roguelike convention, which was released by Focus Home Interactive. The game was developed by the independent French studio Passtech Games, which is known for games such as Masters of Anima and the Space Run series.

Plot

Curse of the Dead Gods takes us on a journey to a gloomy, fantastic world. We play the role of a hero who desires endless riches, divine power and eternal life. Their search leads him to the temples, that are dangerous labyrinths full of all kinds of monsters and deadly traps. In addition, by plundering them, the protagonist has to face a variety of curses.

Mechanics

In Curse of the Dead Gods, the action is presented in an isometric view. During the game, we travel through procedurally generated dungeons and encounter hordes of enemies. The game is distinguished by curses, which at the same time weaken and strengthen the hero. An example is the curse through which some of the damage received takes away not the life points, but gold (although it can keep the protagonist alive for longer, he is poorer than it could have been without the curse), or even a curse through which defeated enemies explode, injuring all living beings in the area (and thus not only other enemies, but also the hero himself).

Smaller monsters stand in our way, whose strength is in numbers, as well as much more powerful bosses. The clashes are dynamic, and during them we use white weapons (like swords or spears) or ranged weapons (like pistols or crossbows). In addition, we have ancient relics on hand that give us new skills. As we progress, we are getting better and better equipment, so that we can go deeper and deeper into the vast dungeons. No matter how powerful our character is, we have to remember about the permadeath, which means we have to start again after death.

Technical aspects

Although the style of drawing in Curse of the Dead Gods is gloomy, it does not lack vivid colours. Nevertheless, the visited places are bathed in darkness, and the horrifying opponents die in bloodshed.
