Ready Set Indie Games Live Streams: Fuzz Force: Spook Squad (PC)

The Following game Fuzz Force: Spook Squad was provided to me for free by the developers/publishers of the game. I would like to thank the developers/publishers for providing a free copy of the game to play on my stream.

In this Live Stream, Ready Set Indie Games plays Fuzz Force: Spook Squad on PC.

Fuzz Force: Spook Squad is a roguelike dungeon crawler game in which you play as one of the four adorable animal characters. Finn the Fox, Dotty the Dog, Lix a Lizard, Snake, or gecko, (couldn't really tell to be fair), and Mecha Peppa a mechanical fox. In the game, you travel around a board and defeats enemies to collect their ghosts in jars, which then can be exchanged for items in a tent.

However, Before I go further into my review let me take the time to thank the developer Fuzz Force for providing me with a free copy of the game to play on my stream as well as to write this review.

The first time I came across Fuzz Force: Spook Squad was when in February of this year during the Winter Steam Game Festival when the developer reached out to me on Twitter to tell me about the game and its demo. I can say that the game has changed a lot from the demo. I really like roguelike games, but what to me what makes Fuzz Force: Spook Squad stand out and makes it different than other roguelikes is that you are rolling dice, and I really love that aspect of the game because it does really leave what happens up to fate.

So when you attack you roll dice, when you wanna shield up you roll dice, when you have to charge your battery for your weapon you roll dice. As someone who has played tabletop role-playing games and obsessed with dice I thought it was a refreshing take on how to play a roguelike, I also like that it is turn-based combat which is something that normally doesn't pop up in roguelikes and I do like that you get to focus on one character at a time, and they do increase in difficulty.

Another interesting aspect of the game is that before battle or entering anything you get a chance to roll for bonus dice. You can exchange either Ghost Jars or your HP to roll bonus dice to give you an advantage or disadvantage. I do like this concept, however, I do feel like it may be a little overused. I would have liked for it to be a little more random instead of popping up for everything you do.  Although you do have the option to not roll the bonus dice at all.

When it comes to the controls of the game, they are pretty good. I have only played the game with Keyboard and Mouse as I believe the game does not use a controller, which is fine for me. I also really liked the art style of the game and thought that the characters were adorable. I think my favorite character to play with is Lix, as they fit more into my playstyle of roguelikes.

Overall, if you are looking for a light-hearted roguelike game and you enjoy rolling dice then I highly recommend picking up Fuzz Force: Spook Squad or at least trying the demo out and then picking it up.
