As an indie developer of RPG games (Dead Age, Grotesque Tactics, Holy Avatar) I also like to play other
Indie games. But my opinion is neutral.
Heroes of the Monkey Tavern is an oldschool party dungeon crawler. In recent decades there have... been few games of this kind reminiscent of Eye of the Beholder or Dungeon Master. The Monkey Tavern is one of the better representatives of this genre. Technically, from an indie point of view, what the only developer of the game has achieved is very successful. You can't praise it enough from the developer's point of view, it's a hell of a lot of work and for the fact that it's his debut, he makes quite a few mistakes.
Graphically it looks good and stands out clearly from the indie mass. Music and sound technology have also become very atmospheric.
Spielerisch one must make compared to the genre sizes a few cutbacks e. g. in the size, but became in any case a solid title. The malus in escape from an opponent is a design decision that makes the gameplay different from e. g. Legend of Grimrock. Not necessarily worse
because here one does not constantly use the evasive tactics, but concentrates on the strokes. There are enough classes to get into the gameplay variably. And until my current game progress the labyrinths are varied. With many switches, little puzzles and traps, besides various neatly animated and pretty good-looking monsters.
Recommendation to buy and I personally support small development studios!
