Can you reach the Nuclear Throne?
  • Description

    Nuclear Throne

    The indie Super-hit from Vlambeer, finally on Nintendo Switch! Nuclear Throne is a post-apocalyptic roguelike-like top-down shooter. Not 'the final hope of humanity' post-apocalyptic, but 'humanity is extinct and mutants and monsters now roam the world' post-apocalyptic. Fight your way through the wastelands with powerful weaponry, collecting radiation to mutate some new limbs and abilities. All these things and more you could do if only you were good at this game. Can you reach the Nuclear Throne?

    I again agree with Froz3nSlack5r. Very difficult, some might say punishing rogue-lite, but really compelling for those of us who enjoy this game structure. Not really suitable for people who need a more conventional sense of forward progress - maybe consider something like Tesla vs Lovecraft instead (which I also like, but is not a rogue-ish game). With that said, I really enjoy this game, even though I might never get to the throne. Over many, many attempts, I can get incrementally further — which actually feels like progress to me. You mileage may (and likely does) vary.


    It's a pretty good yet punishing rogue. Buyer beware this game is tough as nails and doesn't want you to live long. Plan for lots of deaths and explosions. There's unlockable characters each with their own special skill. Some block, some roll, some eat guns. Try and make it as far as you can with limited ammo and a sadly empty health pool. I'd buy this again but I'm a big fan of rogues.
