Creat Studios is no stranger to PSN. In fact, it has got so many titles on Sony’s downloadable service that it got its very own shelf within the digital store.
From Smash Cars to Mushroom Wars, this is a company that is not afraid to tackle new genres. With Labyrinth Legends, Creat brought a cutesy top-down dungeon crawler to the service that brings a Nintendo-like style along with it. While it definitely would fall under Nintendo’s “Seal of Approval,” it is a few missteps short from the quality of Nintendo’s first party titles – meaning it’s flawed, but there is still enjoyment to be found in these dark and err… charming dungeons.
Creat Studios’ Labyrinth Legends attempts to bring a mix of Nintendo-like games and the roguelike style to the PlayStation Network, but it comes up short of the greatness that it takes so much of its inspiration from. Those looking for more of an arcade styled dungeon crawler will likely find the most enjoyment here, but experienced crawlers will likely find frustration. There’s good fun to be had in these deadly labyrinths, but it feels like it’s only half the journey.
