Summary: Difficult. Original. Compulsive. Ugly. All of these are words you could use to describe Teleglitch. It’s a game that does its best to turn you away with some of the worst presentation I’ve ever seen in a game, (even in the ultra low budget Indie space), but underneath the veneer of ugly lies a game...
Summary: Make no mistake, Teleglitch is a hard game. It’s old school to its core, from the art design to the perma-death, and for many it will be an education in how things used to be. It’s solidly built, with slick controls and a mean learning curve but it’s not the kind of game you would sit with for hours...
Conclusion: You will probably know just from looking at the genre whether you are going to buy Teleglitch: Die More Edition or not. If you know what you’re signing up for - incredibly hard gameplay followed by a lot of repetition - then you will definitely enjoy it.
Conclusion: Top-down rogue-like Doom with crafting. That's T3P's Teleglitch in a nutshell, though there's more to it than just that. For a start, it's tough. Really, really tough. For some it will be too hard, but this game has been made for those seeking a sterner challenge.
Too much minimalism! Teleglitch: Die More Edition review
5 August 2013
Excerpt: Teleglitch: Die More Edition is a fun little slice of top-down shooter action with all the potential to turn into something truly great. The problem is that the due date for the game to live up to its potential has largely passed – it’s now released in the Steam store for $12.99, a bit late in the...
Pros: Graphics are simple, but effective, Fundamental concept is sound, Setting is interesting, Controls are responsive, nicely tuned
Cons: There’s just not enough content for the $12.99 price tag, The difficulty is too high, feeling like an awkward, artificial boost to the game’s longevity
Summary: Teleglitch: Die More Edition is a nervewracking, tense experience in which no two playthroughs will ever be the same. The importance of luck and a difficulty of keeping enthusiastic about jumping back in after death may knock the experience somewhat but overall it's a solid title.
