Ampersat is a shooty, slashy, RPG-y game mixing old-school/retro and modern sensibilities. A blend of influences from Gauntlet and Smash TV to Zelda and a dash of Angband, this is a handcrafted adventure with much appeal to fans of Roguelites. A labor of love from a solo developer, Ampersat distills some favorite childhood gaming experiences into a fresh, fun hybrid that sees you killing a lot of monsters, finding a lot of loot, freeing captured letters (um, what?) and growing from a world-weary warrior mage into a powerful smashing/blasting machine!

 

Main Features

  • 50 handcrafted levels, many with exploration and light puzzles
  • Optional endless procedural area
  • Original gameplay elements based around freeing and capturing letters
  • Flexible character progression with extensive skill tree
  • Hundreds of unique pieces of loot to find, buy, sell and augment
  • Upgradeable town hub
  • Tackle stages in the order you choose
  • 50 unique creature types, 10 bosses
  • Drop-in local co-op
