Game release: “Creature in the Well” (PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch)

Flight School Studio‘s hack-and-slash dungeon crawler Creature in the Well takes a literally different spin on the genre with pinball mechanics.

I already had a go at this game during gamescom 2019 in the Microsoft area and the ingenious idea to combine combat with pinball took me by surprise. Unlike Yoku’s Island Express, this title takes a much darker approach, being about the last remaining BOT-C unit who has to go into a desert mountain to restore power to an ancient facility, always followed by a desperate Creature and trying to free the city of Mirage from a sandstorm.

Despite carrying around a sword, this is only used to charge up energy orbs than have to hit bumpers and other switches that could be right out of a pinball machine. So one can defeat enemies this way or solve puzzles, like opening doors. Upgradeable weapons and clothing can also change gameplay. It’s certainly a great alternative to all those dungeon crawlers and pixel hack-and-slash games around, especially since its strange color splashes art design, atmospheric music and sound effects made it even a joy to play back in the noisy consumer area.

The game is out now on PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, with the PC version having a 10% launch discount that will last until September 13th, 4pm UTC.
