Simultaneously novel and retro, Into the Dim is a dungeon crawler with a turn-based twist. As you explore grayscale dungeons, you’ll need to carefully plan each movement or be attacked by skeletons, flying eyes, and other monsters. Filled with chiptune blips, a delightfully hardcore difficulty, and 8-bit graphics that would feel at home on a Game Boy, it's a rewardingly old-school experience.
Good game, broken in some ways
Overall this is a good game. Though it was just updated so that not all levels were unlocked, I am here to talk about the difficulty. Some parts of the game are easy, but it's the little things that make the big problems. For example, the health whenever you die. I think it is unfair that you have one heart left when you die. Sometimes there will be heart containers nearby when you start a level, but since everything one shots you in those circumstances, it takes luck for no skeletons, bats, etc. to spawn around you. Another problem would be the cost of upgrades. I understand that the point of high costs would make the player play the game longer, but since it takes a while just to get 20 coins, getting 80 to refill your health, only to die again would be a waste of a lot of coins. My thoughts would be to make everything that is buyable with coins cost half the price (or more) cost , making it easier to advance throughout the game.
Great Nostalgic Game
With its vintage graphics and cute storyline, what's not to love about this game? Dungeon crawler-type games used to be some of my favorite on my gameboy when I was younger, and this game does great justice to the genre. The first time I downloaded it, it would keep glitching and automatically take me to the boss level after the first two or three levels, but I redownloaded it and that glitch stopped. Besides that little issue, the game was perfect! Although I couldn't figure out how to solve all of the puzzles, I did have fun trying. I'd probably even be willing to pay a dollar or two for more levels. If the lost dog storyline could be more developed and incorporated more into the game, I think that's make it even cooler! I'm excited to start the game in nightmare mode now. 😊
