If you're looking for a game that will conjure up some nostalgic memories of Enter the Gungeon, then AK-xolotl might just be the thing you're looking for.
Coming from publisher Playstack, AK-xolotl is a top-down roguelike with bullet hell gameplay and randomly generated rooms. Don't let the cute visuals fool you; this is a tense experience and you'll need to gather as many deadly weapons and upgrades as you can muster.
Here's a look at the key features from Playstack:
- Five different biomes with a variety of enemies
- Dozens of deadly weapons and power-ups
- Over 100 Axolotls to find and raise
- Bosses you’ll love to hate
- A lotl fun!
Still not convinced? Good news then, you can download a Steam demo right now and try it out for yourself.
What do you make of AK-xolotl? Reckon it can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Enter the Gungeon? Let us know with a comment down below.
Was looking for a Gungeon/BoI like game during the sales this week.
I ended up picking 'Dead Estate' and 'Tiny Rogues'. But thanks for bringing my attention to AK-xolotl......instantly .
Actually I've been playing Enter the Gungeon for a week. Perfect time to slap this over the table, pretty sure it will be a good addition to my library.
I loved enter the gungeon! Also, was that a street fighter reference!?
This reminds me of Blazing Beaks, which I've really enjoyed. I'll probably get this eventually.
yes! its time for smash tv's glorious return!
this looks okay but its no gungeon. ill just keep playing gungeon (afterall, it never seems to end.)
If anything this looks a lot like Nuclear Throne.. maybe even a little bit too much so.
Been waiting for this one for a while now, my daughter and I love axolotls and this will be on both of our Switches day one!
I remember this game mainly because of @CharlieGirl 's fantastic comment when it was first reported here.
there is a demo if this on steam.. it gets pretty hard on the second level.. some creatures one hit you.. it's fun but I'm not sure based on the difficulty level.
The art style isn't super unique to me, but the game itself looks solid. I am kind of done with roguelikes for now though. Unless another one on the level of Hades comes out. Loved that one.
@ZZalapski aw, thanxolotl!
We need a "fever dream" category for indies like this one
@CharlieGirl G*dammit, you did it again, lol.
Nice. Absolutely love Gungeon, such an endlessly fun game.
(cue the inevitable people saying how much they hate roguelikes)
Looks cute and it's about an underappreciated ani- (sees that it's yet another roguelike) oh nvm then
@theModestMouse it's just an oversaturated genre, just like metroidvanias. What's wrong with people disliking them?
