Teleglitch: Die More Edition is a revised version of the roguelike release published by Paradox Interactive. With an aerial view, the sole objective of the game is to survive in a hostile and highly stressful world.
Teleglitch, thy ruthless world
In the tradition of roguelike games, Teleglitch: Die More Edition invites us to explore randomly generated levels, trying to save ammunition and other objects needed for survival. Death is permanent, so the cold sweats are likely to take hold as your weapon's ammunition runs out.
Of course, you can pick up new weapons, food and ammunition, but the sheer number of enemies you need to fight and the speed of gameplay won't make it easy. Note that for this edition of Die More, the game designers have added new weapons to the arsenal and reviewed the AI of your opponents. The most notable change in Teleglitch: Die More Edition is that your character will now be equipped with a randomly selected weapon at the beginning of the game.
Death as viewed from above
You'll already know that Teleglitch: Die More Edition is excruciatingly difficult. This difficulty doesn't just come from the wealth and strength of the enemy, but also an innovative mechanism put in place by the developers: the field of vision. You can only see what is directly in front of you and you have a very realistic and limited peripheral vision. This further adds to the oppressive atmosphere of Teleglitch: Die More Edition and manages to deliver some beautiful surprise effects.
The pixelated graphics of the past have actually returned for Teleglitch: Die More Edition, something that may not please all gamers. With its ultra-pixelated graphics, the game is very ugly, even for a rogue. Those who enter the game atmosphere may quickly forget that it's the game and not the graphics that's important, but it is true that visual comfort in Teleglitch: Die More Edition is not ideal; some objects or enemies are difficult to distinguish because of the low resolution.
We must mention, however, that the minimalist musical accompaniment in the game supports the general feeling of anxiety really well.
Oppressive game that will appeal to fans of the genre
Teleglitch: Die More edition should certainly please fans of randomly generated worlds with high levels of difficulty. The feeling of anxiety is omnipresent and the combat system is well thought out. The atmosphere is also really well done. Some players, however, may not like the (definitely) minimalist graphics, and the repetitiveness of the game.
