Moonlighter - Between Dimensions DLC, some thoughts

Posted by , | Views: 2,751

Moonlighter - Between Dimensions DLC, the expansion to the hit mix of dungeon crawling action and shopkeeping released recently and now I've blasted through here's a few thoughts.

I actually really quite enjoyed Moonlighter. It's a bit of a weird mix but it does work and when we have so many similar games coming out, I've really appreciate a game that at least tries to be a little more unique. It's not just yet another 2D RPG with some dungeon crawling.

The new content is fantastic, with a good price point for what's there. Featuring 10 new original enemies and 5 mini-bosses, the variation in the types of enemies you can now encounter is great and with the different abilities they have the combat certainly can be compelling. That's not all though, the expanded story and lore is also pretty interesting with some fun writing too giving you a nice break between dungeon crawling and shopkeeping when chatting to other characters.

Thanks to all the additions, you can sink quite a few hours into this DLC. A mark against it is that you do need to have finished the main game. For dedicated players, not an issue of course but it's a shame they couldn't balance it in a way for the majority of the content to be open to everyone. To help with that, this DLC did also come with a bunch of free stuff for everyone too:

  • A new thief trying to steal your money from the cash register!
  • A new client – the indecisive customer - better hurry and attend them!
  • A bothersome bird terrorizing your customers - so little, yet so dangerous!
  • 4 new Baby Slime companions - too cute to be true!
  • And on top of that, the basic Rings and Amulets (not the ones from the DLC, tho!) are now available during your first playthrough (if you didn't know: before they were available only in New Game+ Mode).

It hasn't been an entirely smooth release though, the DLC and update came with quite a few really annoying bugs. Thankfully, Digital Sun (the developer) have been pretty quick to release small updates to solve them as they get reported and they've been good with their communication on the issues.

Between Dimensions is bursting with new features and content to discover, it really makes Moonlighter feel more entertaining. Overall, it's a great addition to an already fun game.

You can pick up Moonlighter and the Between Dimensions DLC on Humble Store, GOG and Steam for a copy.
