It offers two types of gameplay in the same game and does it in an excellent way. Beautiful and with many details where a great soundtrack accompanies him. It innovates the dungeon crawler genre in the most ingenious way possible. A difficult game with an excellent duration. Moonlighter is going to be a game you’ll pick up, play, and instantly want to tell your friends all about.
