princess.loot.pixel.again xbox

Doing without the need for any real farming or the requirement to take in a hardcore difficulty, Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again arrives on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S to deliver one thing – fun. Hopefully.

Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, from the get-go you may well think that Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again is just another of those genre filling roguelites that will have you learning some kind of process, before killing you straight and setting you out on a quest again, all before rinsing and repeating.

You’d probably be right too, as Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again is most certainly a dynamic platformer that will happily change things up time and time again. But whilst level designs will amend with each one of your deaths, the opportunity for you to take in and learn what is required for success should continue to grow, all as you attempt to take down an Evil Mage. 

Traversing the floors of a Dark Tower is the name of the game in Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again and whilst the plot and narrative behind this could well be a bit throwaway, we like the setup enough to perk up. We like it more when Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again promises to let us learn from our mistakes, failing to punish us unless we need it. It’ll be through the improvement of skills that the desired outcome will emerge; not just from spending time grinding away to level up. 

With 12 characters in play, each of which come with a variety of performance and equipment hits, learning exactly what is going on in Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again could well take some time. And with the low £4.19 price point in tow, this seems to be another one of those content rich-cash low affairs that are slowly filling the Xbox Store. 

Throw in some secrets, some tricks, some customisation and even some Easter Eggs, and there should be much to love about Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again and the release on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.  The key features you need worry about include:

  • The main gameplay feature is fun! No farming or hardcore difficulty. As you progress, you’ll come across Easter eggs, things that’ll crack you up and allusions to other games coupled with self-mockery
  • Randomly generated locations of items, artifacts, traps, rooms in the building, enemies and bosses
  • 12 characters, all with different performance and equipment
  • Customized equipment which can be upgraded with rocks, runes and enchantments
  • Secret features and tricks (e.g. get a firesword by plunging your sword into the lava)
  • Jaw-dropping action with various moves, skills and spells!

We’ll let you know how it goes in our full review, but hit up the Xbox Store if you wish to take a punt on this non-harcore, non-grindy, fun little roguelite platformer. 

Game Description:

Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again is a dynamic platformer with the elements of a rogue-lite, a combo system and special moves. The main goal is to clear all the floors of the Dark Tower and defeat the main antagonist – the Evil Mage. This won’t be easy because after the permadeath of the main character the castle floor plan is automatically redesigned. Whether you succeed or not primarily depends on your skills, not on random events. The player gradually gets to know game mechanics, learns the effects of artifacts, items, skills, the behavior of enemies and bosses. This lies at the core of gameplay – the player gets better mainly by learning from their mistakes and improving their skills, not from leveling up their character. Plot The story starts with a young man who fell in love with the King’s daughter and dared to go and ask the ruler for his daughter’s hand. But a commoner is no match for her, so the King sends for the executioner to have him beheaded. At this very moment, the Evil Mage bursts into the castle and kidnaps the King. Our fearless hero rushes to the villain’s lair to defeat him and prove he is worthy of the King’s blessing. The castle halls diverge at certain points, which means the player will have to make important choices. The game has several endings which depend on how many times you complete it and the paths you choose.
