Enter the Gungeon, the bullet hell dungeon crawler from Dodge Roll and Devolver Digital, has finally released on PC and PS4. I’ve played my fair share of the game thus far, and it’s very deserving of all the hype surrounding it. From the vast amount of hilarious weapons available to the awesome enemies you encounter, it's as exciting and enjoyable as a dungeon crawler gets. You can check it out now on Steam, GOG, Humble, or the Playstation Store.
