Retro-done RPG action with elements of roguelike and commercial games. Play as a shopkeeper, whose ambition is to become a real hero, and the way to this end leads through dangerous and filled with various opponents dungeons. That's where our protagonist gains more treasures, which then sold in his store allow him to buy and produce more and more powerful weapons and armor.
Moonlighther is a fantasy, rogue-like action RPG set for the Windows PC platform, in which we play the role of a simple shopkeeper who dreams of becoming a real hero. The creation of the game corresponds to the Spanish Digital Sun Games studio, which managed to gain the support of players as part of the Square Enix Collective's support program for Square Enix.
The action of the game was set in the small merchant town of Rynok, surrounded by many unexplored dungeons. In this city, the shop is run by a protagonist named Will, whose ambition is to become a real hero. To achieve this, he will first have to get the right equipment and master a variety of useful abilities. In the game world, however, everything has its price, therefore, at night, after closing the store, our protagonist regularly visits nearby dungeons, which allows him to earn various goods, which - if cashed - will allow him to fulfill his dreams. Next trips Willa is just a prelude to the adventure that awaits him after the opening of the last, the most mysterious dungeon to which no one dared to venture before.
The fun mechanics in Moonlighter Crack combines the features of a classic, rogue-like RPG action with elements of a commercial game, and the game itself is divided into two main parts. The first of them are regular, night outings to nearby dungeons, where beating consecutive opponents Will can get a lot of valuable things. In a randomly generated underground, our protagonist confronts both serial and not very intelligent enemies, as well as quite a powerful bossom, who after death part with the whole mountain of equipment and goods suitable for sale. During the expedition, our protagonist can use different types of weapons (forcing the use of different combat tactics), use increasingly stronger armor, and thanks to ancient scrolls - use various special abilities. Possible death of the hero is not permanent, but moves us back to the beginning of a given dungeon and makes us lose a lot of previously acquired equipment.
A separate aspect of the game is Willa, where he can sell the good he gained in the dungeons by successively filling the pouch with gold. The element necessary to achieve success is the continual expansion of the store with new elements that can attract potential customers. In the course of the game, we gradually enrich our knowledge of sold items, which allows us to derive more and more profit from their sale. In the game, we will not find a classic, experience-based leveling system, and the only element that allows the development of the character is gaining more and more powerful weapons and armor. Our hero can buy, visit other urban shopkeepers or create himself using the craft system implemented in the game.
In technical terms, the Windows Moonlighter Torrent Skidrow released on the PC platform represents typical Rogue Rogues approach, putting on an old-fashioned graphic design in a retro style, which at the same time was kept in a colorful and eye-catching, slightly fairytale style. As the main sources of their inspiration, developers from the Digital Sun Games studio mention the legendary Zelda series, as well as contemporary productions such as Rogue Legacy or The Binding of Isaac.
