Tyler from All Age Gaming writes "The trailer for Basement Crawl paints it as a macabre tale. A disturbing story of horror about a frightened family unable to venture outside for fear of assault by unsettling creatures that invokes the likes of Saw or I Am Legend. However the trailer and the opening cutscene might be the most blatant example of false advertising I have seen in a long while. Once you buy and install Basement Crawl it reveals itself as a multiplayer only Bomberman clone. This kind of advertising subterfuge could have been forgiven if the game was half-decent, but it isn’t."
