Nintendo Life wrote that “[its] strengths lie in its simple combat which manages to stave off repetition, the array of weapon types, and the diversity of ways players can tackle each dungeon. (…) the journey is still mechanically engaging and definitely worth the effort, especially if you’re a newcomer to the dungeon crawler genre, have a little extra cash, or both.”

Shigeru Reviews scored the game 8.5 out of 10 and praised Excave as “a great proposal with all the elements of a classic dungeon crawler (…) [it] will keep you entertained for a long time trying to find all the secrets the Labyrinth possess. (…) [It] is a worthy inclusion on the 3ds library and well spent cash IMO.”

Nerdbacon was really impressed with the title and called “Excave to be one of the best eShop games I’ve played.”

Pokemon Battle Zone pointed out that the best features of Excave are “awesome music, a lot of floors to explore, enemies to defeat and items to find, it’s a game that’s well worth the $5 asking price.”

But the positive reviews don’t end there! Darkain Arts Gamers summed up – “If dungeon exploration games are you kind of thing, or if the game has peaked your interest, you should definitely take a look.”

Overall, it looks like Excave has won fame & fortune among players and hopefully will return to the platform with new installments.
