Horror Themed Defense RPG Cursed Coins Enters Early Access
A gory new defense RPG that feels like a zombified spin on The Oregon Trail by the name of Cursed Coins has arrived on Android via early access. This pixel style pseudo-strategy RPG from indie developer VJ Games puts players in command of a group of grave robbers that have picked the wrong crypt to loot as it turns out to be cursed and they must now fight back against an army of the undead if they want to make it out alive. In addition to intense horde based battles that see players mowing down hundreds of monsters at a time Cursed Coins also features an interesting randomized risk/reward system where plundering for more powerful loot has the potential to embolden both the player and the undead with various buffs.
As players journey throughout the graveyard exploring crypts and picking up enhancements for their party they’ll run into roving bands of monsters that must be dispatched using the special abilities available to each character. In addition to the two different weapon types unique to each of the four party members they are also able to unleash destructive spells that can wipe out large swaths of the enemy at a time. Over time players will be able to enhance their monster killing repertoire by finding randomized loot in crypts and using garnered experience points to unlock new special abilities. While still in early access Cursed Coins already looks promising so it will be interesting to see where it goes from here.
Cursed Coins is free to download on Google Play.
