Loot River has a lot of good features – its controls, soundtrack, and art style are great. But the gameplay lacks diversity, and the game fails to live up to its potential.

You know that moment in a good roguelite where you’ve overextended yourself, but you’ve also won riches that you don’t want to lose before you can bank them? This is what Loot River is built for, ultimately: I race around the world, dashing from one tile to another, breaking off from a little continent, an archipelago of burning wood and then searching, searching for the level’s exit as I eye my tiny health gauge with fear. A procedural dungeon-crawler where you can rescramble the once-scrambled levels? Gary Chang would be proud.

A roguelike that a combo of solid combat and sliding block puzzles, but prepare to be broke a lot.

An entertaining roguelite that will catch you not only for the original of its “Tetris” mechanics, but also for the great fusion with the soulslike style, its beautiful aesthetics and the number of “runs” that you will have to overcome to discover all its secrets. If you like the genre, you will like it, despite the flaws it has at the moment.
