Inspired by Realm of the Mad God, Survived By offers a much more developed rogue-like MMORPG experience mixed with real-time bullet hell gameplay. While the pixel art style is a nostalgic throwback, the game has a number of innovative features.

Don't want to do these heart quests? Skip them. Players are free to complete the quests they … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2 Game Review
