For a game that calls itself a roguelike, Eldritch is at its best when it strays from the established norms of the genre. Eldritch has permanent death, but the combat is forgiving and health is somewhat plentiful. Levels are procedurally-generated but easy to navigate. The game throws you into the thick of things but is easy to figure out. Eldritch brings simplicity and accessibility to a genre known for being unfair and unforgiving, and the result is a fun, addicting experience worth coming back to over and over again.
