Oh how we do love Indie Games on My Games Lounge, especially ones that make us wonder if we have got our spelling wrong! But no, it’s definitely the Weaponographist and it’s definitely worth a bash.
After a bit of a comical start to the game you are put in control of a character called Doug McGrave, he’s a typical Knight and heroic type with a big build and chiseled jaw but after refusing to help a small town he is cursed to earn his strength back by a witch.
Now he has to fight wave after wave of enemies in dungeons until he either survives the levels or comes back defeated.
The game itself is an isometric action title that sees you in a small town able to trade for weapons upgrades or magic. You enter the dungeon area to clear the levels of their demonic and slightly unusual enemies with whatever weapons you can pick up. Kill them and you grab their weapon so there is always a supply, but at low level they break very quickly.
Getting a good combo by killing quickly here is the key, along with staying alive of course. Its great fun and very addictive. I somehow feel that the game well be more suited to a mobile format to be fully appreciated but so far I’m liking it and find it hard to stop when I get going.
Some more details are below and it’s worth having a go on the demo as you can win a free copy from Mastertronic Games.
About the Game
The Weaponographist is a high-speed hack-n-slasher and the tale of Doug McGrave – an egotistical demon hunter, cursed to have every weapon fall apart in his grasp. Swords, spears, slingshots and magic staffs – use whatever weapons you can before they break to quickly slay the demons of the dungeon and break the curse.
