The game is formatted as a rogue-like game, where you must move through a series of dungeons and where your progress is reset if you die. But, unlike other rogue-like games, when restarting the dungeon crawl, your character, Zagreus, remains permentantly upgraded and characters you meet will remember you from your previous attempts.
Each environment and character is hand drawn in a cartoon style and are fully voiced. This results in an action game where the narrative and evolving story also offer a strong reason to play.
You need to repeatedly press the fire button in the game. However, there are some weapons with an autofire that can help this.
