Ready to kick some deadly, monstrous demon butt? Then this is the game for you! GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon is one of the most action-packed games I’ve played this month, actually this entire year so far! It is full of action-packed killings, unlimited recharging weapons, and most of all, such brilliant and detailed art that includes not just the background scenery, but the characters and the enemies alike.

I haven’t played a few roguelikes, action-packed games like this one for a while. However, I am so grateful to have played it! From the start, what really took lured me in was not the game but the brilliant Japanese art. Even if the game isn’t so great, It still had me interested to check it out, because that art is so captivating. Luckily the game is just as amazing as the art!

Foremost, the combat against all the enemies will have you excited, from slicing and shooting them nonstop! It’s flawless and captivating with each attack you execute on every enemy. Especially, when you get to view each of the effects the weapon delivers on the monster in front of you. I just can tell you that the entire combat scenes are very well animated and the game comes to life right in front of you.

There is not one part of the game that is lacking! GetsuFumaDen won’t let the player down, especially if it’s those looking to continuously prove one’s strength by beating up the dead, finding and equipping plenty of powerful weapons, gaining new upgrades to help you get stronger, and defeating even harder and worse demons as they appear providing even more of a challenge.

Get Ready For Nonstop Action

Right from the start, the game will have you slashing these walking dead corps and demons as you travel through different locations. There isn’t much to worry about, it’s a game that is so easy to understand, especially with the controls. I must say that the ability to have the weapon’s ammo replenished without the need to find more, is a great pleasure! So the defeats can still be afflicted and no need to run past or hide from enemies when you’ll always be charged up throughout the game. It may take a few seconds to replenish, but it is quite quick and so worth it!

From the easy-to-use controls and the many weapons and upgrades, this game is just nothing but unlimited excitement! There are so many beautiful graphics and astounding bosses to come upon. Plus, there are so many upgrades and powerful new abilities one can be obtained throughout the game. However, many of the items acquired, that were equipped get removed, when returning to the main location, but once you return into the world of the dead, you can acquire these weapons again and even some new and many others.

The hero we play as is able to hold plenty of weapons and switch between each of them, as they all have a strong and unique feature that still provides a strong defeat towards the enemies we come against. Additionally, having that second … to choose another weapon while using one main one, is another feature I honestly love. Especially, a few other features our character can handle like souls to call upon to defeat even more demons and evening tossing explosive items. There really is so much that this game provides that many don’t, one major thing is that you’re able to hold and switch between weapons without dropping or getting rid of the two you like. However, you can if you want to make room for another.

Additionally, seeing the number of hit points being removed from the enemy and of course, a large amount is always even more exciting and makes you want to attack some more! I don’t know why, but when you are fighting and beating up an enemy, it’s always great to see those numbers go high, shows how much more powerful, skilled, and upgraded the player’s hero really is our heroes in the game. I always find it a reason to keep fighting, learned since I was young, so I can always get a better chance of winning the battles if I upgrade sooner and faster from the beginning when and wherever I can!

In some cases, this is a good thing about the game because you will end up restarting over if you fail in any part of the game. Once defeated; dead you end up back in the main location, GetsuFumaDen. After this happens you lose everything and end up starting again, but it appears as the location changes up each time, like a maze. The levels become unique and exciting to play through, even if it restarts again, after the first time being killed.

Also, I wanted to point out that a game like this, a rogue-style game makes me feel like I’m playing Castlevania in a 2D style design like the classic Castlevania game I use to play on the Nintendo console, but with better quality graphics; such as a piece of painted artwork that isn’t pixelated. It just is so well designed and each location you transport to and new enemy; boss you go against will leave the player, as it has for myself, feel compelled with joy to play the game for hours!

Lastly, I do want to add that when you just take a look at the game on a small screen, such as the monitor of the Nintendo Switch, You won’t be upset or unpleased by how well the game was designed to fit everything on the screen. It may appear a bit small, making the text a little harder to read at some parts, but it definitely captures everything on the screen, so there is no need to scroll or search much to see what you will be looking forward to or be surprised to find. Therefore, if you have a console, like the Nintendo Switch Lite you’ll be able to take this game anywhere and not feel as if you’re not getting a full screen of the game. As many games, do better when it’s on the big screen; A TV. However, this works either handheld or the original NS and on the Television, it works wonderfully!

Final Opinion

I have always been very impressed with this game from start to end. It’s something that really captured my attention, on a daily basis. It has such an appealing allure and such a great story to playthrough. I honestly loved the art, the combat, and the huge bosses, literally huge! It’s just one of those games that really will leave a lasting impression and provide nothing but joy.

Honestly, I’ll probably continue to play over and over, no matter how many times I complete it. The game levels are always random and the change in difficulty can make it even more challenging each time I play. I would highly recommend this game for those with enjoyment and who want nonstop action throughout the game. Plus, no lengthy speeches; text, but plenty of action and plenty of weapons and powers to choose from. It’s just a marvelous and truly excellent game that won me over from the first time I played it!
