Game Description

The dungeon crawler where your friends control the monsters!

Crawl is a fast-paced arcade dungeon crawler for one to four players. Battle through randomly generated dungeons full of cruel traps and horrid beasts- all controlled by your friends! If one of them kills you they take your place and it's their turn to crawl. It's a race to gain enough XP and loot to face them all as they possess the flailing limbs of the hulking final boss!

Review: Crawl (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

As you might have guessed, we really like Crawl, and we'd bet our collected stash of gold and wrath you will, too. It's great fun in single-player thanks to some aggressive AI that will hound you at every moment, but that consistent danger takes on a new lease of enjoyment when you and three of your friends are jostling for XP and that all important killing blow. Couchplay doesn't get much better than this on Switch.

Review: Crawl via VGProfessional

Australian based studio Powerhoof first game is a great success, even if Crawl lacks online multiplayer and a limited end-game challenge. It's still a great and easy pick to play with friends locally as a party game, or even casually against bots that are smart and will give you a decent challenge.

Crawl Review via Nintendo Insider

There’s no doubting the enjoyment that’s possible in Crawl. I would love to have seen a proper story mode that allows the unlocking of items, etc, because the universe the devs have created is intriguing. There’s a lot here to love, but a lot that can lower the experience. It doesn’t have the draw of an Isaac or Gungeon and it won’t beat out ARMS or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe when you have friends round, but it’s worthy of time because it does so many things differently.

Crawl is definitely worth a download, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Crawl Review via Quillstreak

Crawl is an exceptional multiplayer that takes a huge advantage of the Switch's portability. An unique game that should be present in all parties.

I generally don't have people over to play this multiplayer. Is it still fun in single player at all? I love the look of it.

This looks like a lot of fun to play with friends and could possibly make this into a drinking game :P But what sold me on it, was the ad. That was creative and hilarious. I hope the game lives up to it!

Probably my favorite party games. Pick it up!

I mean, come on, that is one of the best concepts of all times.
You play a hero, get killed by one of your friends, who get to be the hero while you try to stop him, so that another friend get to be the hero, and so on. Without mentioning the devilish yet funny ad for it.
This sounds GREAT at parties, and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more. The graphics didn't matter to me at all, this thing looks like a lot of fun. I want it! Wishlist!

A great party game. Some might find it a bit confusing at first, but once they manage to grasp the mechanics it becomes one hell of an enjoyable experience.

One of the best games to play with friends. Extremely fun and challeging. I can play this game for hours.
