Enter the Gungeon was already part of the Amazon/Twitch Prime free games in January 2020 and offers plenty of opportunities, especially in co-op mode, to shoot one’s way through many dungeons with all sorts of guns, as the title suggests. As the heroes and weapons have unique abilities and attributes, there’s plenty of varied gameplay to be found, which is necessary to survive during the onslaught of enemies and bullets one has to kill and evade.
I played God’s Trigger during a hands-on session at gamescom 2017 and I don’t know how many times I died back then. Still, I was having a great time, thanks to gameplay and violence/gore reminiscent of Hotline Miami (see my review). Choosing between an angel or a demon (or having both in local co-op), it’s up to the unlikely duo to bring down the four riders of the apocalypse, which results in frantic shooting and a bloodbath that has to be seen to be believed.
Both games can now be added to the Epic Games Store account for free until August 27, 2020, at 5:00 PM.
