Ziggurat

Dungeon-Crawling First Person Shooting at its finest! Fast-paced combat! Dozens of perks, spells and enemies! Level ups! Random Dungeons! Traps! Badass bosses! Carrots! Ziggurat is the best combination of First Person Shooter and Rogue-LITE you have ever seen.

Become a neophyte sorcerer, and get ready for your rite of passage: Enter the labyrinth and face dangerous challenges to prove your worth and become a powerful wizard!

The game focuses on fast-paced first person shooting, with an old-school vibe, and updated handling and game mechanics. Dungeon crawling and RPG/Roguelike elements are added into the mix, resulting in a fun, challenging and varied game, with lots of content to discover.

Fight almighty bosses, get through rooms filled with traps, and treasures that may help you in your journey... Each game is a whole new experience!

Unlike most Rogue-thingies, on Ziggurat your combat skills will be the most important asset to keep advancing. Leveling up and randomly generated content is there to improve variety and make each game different, not to make the game a roll dice or an unbearable grind.

Most perks are designed to change the way you have to play or the weapons you'll want to use. Do you want more speed in exchange for less health, or maybe is better to have mana regeneration? Increase drop rate, or refill ammo here and now? No number game here, simple and direct choices.

We've also ensured that, as a proper FPS game, the experience is quick and direct. There's no inventory to manage or the need to compare two almost equal item drops, just weapon selection, and mana/health are usually the bargaining chip.

A whole arsenal of magic and alchemic weapons will be at your disposal. Wreak havoc among your enemies, but watch your mana reserves or you might regret it later!

Magic staves, spellbooks, magic wands... dozens of weapons with different attack strategies that help keeping the game fresh!

  • If you like first-person action games and you're looking for something different, you shouldn't miss this one. It's fun and addictive, and we only hope it gets a multiplayer mode sometime soon.

  • Ziggurat looks amazing, and at first, you can’t even tell that it was made by a small indie studio. Though the lack of resources is apparent in environments that lack variety – both visual and gameplay-wise. Plus, perks grant you only passive buffs, and aside from ‘guns’, your only other weapons are amulets which work for mere seconds when activated.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    An excellent mix of a rogue-like genre and FPS – although it doesn't bring anything new, it works great. It has perfect controls and thanks to various enemies, randomly generated (almost) anything and RPG elements game feel fresh with every new start. [Issue#252]

  • So if you are after a dungeon crawler (or more correctly here a Tower climber) and you get your kicks from Serious Sam style play… then prepare to test your mettle as a Wizard to be, enter the Ziggurat and show them whose boss. If you are like me and find perma-death more a nuisance than a challenge then perhaps steer clear.

  • I doubt that I'll ever see the final boss playing on maximum difficulty, but a few more tries won't hurt.
