I haven’t dedicated nearly as much of my time as I might expect with the “Roguelike” genre as a whole, even though it seems pretty up my alley overall. Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle may change all that for me; it’s not a perfect game, but it sure is a lot of fun. I really enjoyed exploring the extensive, randomly-generated dungeons — and I got to see a lot of them over the course of this review, because if there’s one thing that Claustrophobia has a lot of, it’s situations that are pretty tough to survive. Deadly monsters, insidious traps, and the ever-present darkness that makes whatever’s around the next corner or through the next door a wonderful mystery.
