On paper, the pitch for dungeon-delving video game Necropolis sounds pretty off-putting: a roguelike, permadeath-loaded spin on Dark Souls, in which friends can inadvertently kill each other when they team up in co-op.
Harebrained Schemes' first foray into the roguelike genre relies on a few too many random-content-generation tropes that don't all lend themselves well to an action-RPG that revolves around giant dungeons, heavy swords, and surprise monster attacks.
These baddies have a spinning electricity attack, and it's not fun to deal with.
