It's a game you must persevere at because you are supposed to die and learn. It has an additional novelty of an analogue aiming system using one of the joysticks as well as granting each enemy a unique set of skills, behaviours and collaborations. You need to learn their patterns and discover weaknesses.
Each time you die you end up back at the camp and can slowly rebuild and maintain the village. Meet new characters, choose your traps, your weapons and keep track of your discoveries and unlocked content.
The game is designed to make each new run a completely new experience. Each room is handcrafted to get the most out of the combat, but you'll never explore the same dungeon twice.

8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. You need to be able to move and aim at the same time. There's also a requirement to try, fail and try again. Part of the fun is getting the best out of the equipment you are constrained with each run so patience and resistance are important.
You can’t select difficulty but the game starts more simply with easier enemies until you are better equipped. When you die you have the chance to try again with a selection of different abilities that may help. There is a good map to help you know where to go next and a fast travel system if you’ve been to rooms before. The text is generally clear although some menus are dark text on dark background and some details are in a small font.
