Loot River is a roguelike, realised in the hack'n'slash format with the addition of solutions bringing to mind... Tetris. The game was developed by an independent Slovak team straka.studio, in cooperation with SUPERHOT team.

Plot

Loot River takes us on a journey to a fantastic universe. The main character of the game is a masked daredevil exploring the underground, through which the title Loot River flows. His search for hidden knowledge leads him through alternative realities and locks him in an endless cycle of life and death.

Mechanics

In Loot River we observe the action from a top-down view. During the game we explore an extensive maze of tunnels. Compared to other productions of this type, the described game stands out due to the fact that the underground consists of countless fragments of ruins drifting on the river, which resemble Tetromin. Thanks to the power of an artefact at the protagonist's disposal, we can freely move and rotate them. This unusual power can be used not only to make our way through dungeons, but also to avoid enemies or lure them into traps (nothing stands in the way of bringing opponents to single "islands" and then disconnecting them from the rest).

And speaking of enemies - hordes of adversaries stand in our way, among which you'll find both wholesale cannon fodder and powerful bosses. During dynamic clashes we use an extensive arsenal of cold weapons and a variety of combat skills. As we progress we develop the hero, unlocking new skills and gaining better and better equipment. Typically for roguelikes, after death we are reborn in a slightly different world (dungeons are procedurally generated), so we have to be ready to face new challenges.

Technical aspects

Loot River features dark, pixel art graphics. Although the visual layer of the game is kept in a retro style, it is enriched with modern solutions, such as realistically animated shadows and water.
