Enter The Gungeon Review
Posted: 3 weeks ago, last updated 2 weeks ago.
Like The Binding of Isaac play involves quick reactions and movement/shooting strategy. You choose one of four protagonists, each with different abilities - calling in support or lockpicking chests. You dodge bullets, flip tables for cover and shoot enemies to work through multiple floors and rooms, each with a set of enemies with varying strength, endurance, and attack behaviour.
As you progress you find and use the huge array of firearms. 300 different guns and items can be combined to achieve more powerful effects called Synergies. Then, to complete the floor you must defeat the boss who will grants you a special gun or item. You can also rescue non-player characters who then help the player upgrade between runs.
If you enjoy this game, there is a spin-off, Exit the Gungeon, which uses a platform game-approach instead of the top-down dungeon crawler.

You can opt to show a targeting cursor and adjust how that looks. There is a visual representation of reloading your gun and an accompanying sound that is a rising scale of notes to indicate how this is progressing.
You can play the game on Switch with just on Joy-Con. This is either using the buttons as the means of aiming or using Gyro to aim instead of the second stick.
