Tallowmere on Switch Tallowmere in review

Miketendo64.com rated the game 9 out of 10 and called it “a charming game that’s easily addictive. It can bring out your competitive side with friends to see who can last the longest and get the highest score. It’s a fun challenge that can get intense fast but can be pretty casual at the same time. It’s a game we’ll be going back to again.”

According to J. P. Humphries from Whataboutthegame.com, Tallowmere “has a lot of good things about it. It’s simple yet has depth, there’s no fluff and it’s addictive. There’s not much else to ask for in a Rogue-like. (…) Those wanting a solid no nonsense Rogue-like will definitely get a fill from Tallowmere”.

“Tallowmere surprised me – it offers exceptional value for money given the low cost and high replay value and despite humble looks, it creates the kind of gameplay hook that will make you want to keep picking it up again and again” – Matthew Smail from Nerdly rated the game 7 out of 10.

Also, Jack from Switch Era had a blast and “enjoyed it a lot” (rated 8 out of 10), and Stark from Real Otaku Gamer thinks it “is a great game and as a cheap one, it certainly is worth looking into”.

eShop Gurus team stated that the game “gives the Switch eShop a dungeon crawler that, while seeming to be basic with it’s presentation, makes up for it with it’s replayability from altering the game for better or worse depending on your taste. It’s easy to pick up and go explore the dungeon nature really suits the portability of the switch, while out, you can do a run to see how far you can make it in a dungeon, and with friends, it’ll be worth sacrificing a kitty or two for”. Rated 8 out of 10.

The same rating was given by The Flannel Fox in his YouTube review. “With solid mechanics, challenging gameplay and variety from run to run, Tallowmere captured my attention from the moment I sat down and repeated started dying, then running back into battle Axe blazing”.

And last but not least – players’ feedback. Tallowmere has been kindly received by real players too icon smile Tallowmere in review A user called Ziovax wrote a review at Metacritic stating that the “game is very fun to play. If you like the roguelike games, this one is for you: great replayability, just to get a room later… tons of weapons and armors, impeccable procedural generation of the dungeons”.

How far through Lady Tallowmere’s dungeons can you delve in? Each randomly-generated room gets bigger, harder, and more rewarding the further you go. Raise your shield and hunt for the key in each room – or die trying. Be on your guard for every enemy, elite, boss, and treasure chest you’ll encounter. Discover new weapons and armor ranging from Basic to Otherworldly. Brace yourself as you learn the quirks of each foe, trap, and room type so you can strive for that “one more run” high-score victory!

Screen01 Tallowmere, our first game on Nintendo Switch, is coming next week!

Randomly-generated rooms – Every time you play, the rooms are different: different enemies, different layouts, different trap placements, different events, different treasure. You never know what lies ahead.

Enemies – Archers, fire mages, conductors, zaeries, ogres, leapers… Slay them before they slay you. You can fully block their attacks with your shield, but it’s easier said than done.

Traps – Spikes, poison skulls, pinwheels… Trap damage isn’t blockable, so don’t get hit.

Bosses and events – Hydras, mechanical nightmares, ferocious felines, flag capturing… Sharpen your skills to survive.

Loot – Hearts, coins, keys, souls, potions, rocket launchers, katanas, grenades, flamethrowers, ice wands, emerald daggers… Every weapon has a unique mechanic, giving you a choice of how to tackle your current situation. Collect all the weapons or die trying.

Screen02 Tallowmere, our first game on Nintendo Switch, is coming next week!

Tallowmere is easy to learn but hard to master:

  • Block enemy attacks with your shield
  • Strike when you have the advantage
  • Avoid traps
  • Collect loot
  • Spend souls to increase stats
  • Try not to die

You can take a few hits, but fail to block enough and you’re done.. Learn how things work and you’ll hopefully make it farther next time. Tallowmere features a high-score system so you can track your greatest efforts.

About Tomasz Dziobek

My name is Tomasz Dziobek and I am a producer at Teyon, a Polish video game developer and publisher, with 10 years of experience in creating games. During this time I worked on 3D art, textures, level design, animations and game-play design. All of this, plus the experience with Unreal Engine allowed me to start development of my own game. I am a big fan of action games and slashers, especially featuring a couch mode, so I have decided to make something new, interesting and different from other action titles. That’s why I’m making Cubers on my own, for me, my wife, and everyone who loves slashing hordes of enemies!
