Indie Game Review: Monolith

Welcome! everyone to another indie game review on a rather exciting indie game that has the Shoot-em-up and Roguelike mechanics, installed and the name of that game is Monolith! 


The story begins with a legendary power that is locked up deeply into the abandoned facility in the darkest level with tons of enemies using all of their powers to defend this legendary power until the one who is worthy of it!

Mid Commentary

So far my first impression of Monolith, I found this game to remind me a lot of "Binding of Issac" game series with its somewhat similar maps but it brings shoot'em up, mechanics. Overall really fun and with the creative enemies and procedurally generated maps to make these entirely different.

Trailer and Video Game Review


This game is heavily inspired by a large number of doujin shooters with twin-stick shooting action and procedurally generated environments. The player takes control of a little ship, with the ability to use a different amount of assorted weapons, dash quickly and cancel out enemy bullets with a limited supply of bombs. 

Pro and Con's

Pro's                                         Con's

  • You die a lot 

  • Not for everyone 

  • Can get frustrating at times

  • A lot of action

  • Gives you a challenge 

  • You will die a lot

  • Combination of abilities 

  • Each time a new Experience


So far I really like this game even though it reminds me of "Binding of Issac a bit but adding a lot of shooting up mechanics, using your skills to get through certain conditions and different enemies. I really like playing this game and having a new experience with each death! 

Great game for those that love a challenge! 4 out of 5
