Rack N Ruin Review ? Hidden Gem (PS4)

Despite game delays and remasters grabbing the headlines this year, there has still been plenty of games for PlayStation 4 owners to play. Many of these titles are coming to PS4 thanks to Sony’s aggressive campaign in getting indies onto its platform. This had led to some of the best surprises in recent gaming memory occurring on PlayStation hardware. The latest indie game that hopes to make a splash in the market is Lifespark Entertainment’s Rack N Ruin, a game that aims to meld together Zelda-style dungeons with a complex combat system. 
Corrupt the World
Typically in video games, you play as the hero that is trying to do something noble and save the world. This is not the case in Rack N Ruin. Instead, the game has the humorous setup of having you play as a demon, named Rack, who is trying to corrupt (and ultimately take over) the world. It’s certainly a fun spin on a tired concept and the game is helped out by having well written dialogue that breathes life into the characters.
Rack starts off his adventure powerless, but quickly gains the ability to lob fireballs at enemies. Aiming is not done by using the right stick, with the game instead opting to use a mixture of forward facing attacks and a lock-on mechanic that works well but can sometimes lock onto an unwanted enemy when the screen gets crowded. After taking on a few lower-class enemies, he also obtains a sword that works well for short-range combat. Throw in a damage absorbing shield for defense, and Rack has quite a few skills at his disposal. What makes Rack N Ruin’s combat great is that it presents players with several ways to tackle any situation, which allows for experimentation and for players to pick a play-style that is best suited for them.
After a short tutorial section, Rack is presented with an open-world to explore. While a lot of it is inaccessible at first, it’s still a daunting area to explore as enemies are seemingly around every corner of this world. As Rack’s goal is to ultimately corrupt the world, he must find shrines (of which there is conveniently one of in each area) to corrupt which he does by sacrificing the souls of his slain enemies. Once these areas are corrupted their bright green forestry turns into a red-colored wasteland filled with more violent foes.
If Rack wants to successfully complete his quest, he’ll have to venture to dungeons so he can gain new abilities. The dungeons in Rack N Ruin could easily be confused as being stripped from a lost Legend of Zelda game as it was clearly a source of inspiration for the game. Rooms full of enemies will have to be defeated, keys will have to be found, and puzzles will have to be solved. These dungeons are well done and are really the highlight of the experience. The puzzles are often clever (although there is a lot of moving blocks around) which keeps these moments from being overly frustrating. 
Each dungeon ends with a boss encounter that is a true test of the p...
