Game Description

Yodanji is a coffee-break roguelike themed after Japanese folklore tales. Roguelike part is responsible for procedurally generated levels, permadeath and turn-based combat. Folklore tales are responsible for everything else, from the appearance of the dungeon and items that can be found in there to playable characters.

Review: Yōdanji (Nintendo Switch) via Digitally Downloaded

Yōdanji is eminently playable, and perfect for short bursts in between more meaty games.

Yodanji (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

While there certainly will be a market of people that will enjoy Yodanji I think that selection of people will be fairly narrow.

Yodanji Review via Switch Player

Yodanji manages to take Japanese Folklore monsters and turn them into a dull turn-based rogue-like. The random nature of the game completely undermines any interesting ideas and, unfortunately, the whole experience ends up falling a little flat as a result.

Review: Yōdanji (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

Bite-sized but very tough to chew, Yōdanji is a devilishly tricky roguelike with a fun theme, addictive, goal-based gameplay and massive replay value. Its 21 unlockable characters are the key to the latter, with each yōkai essentially acting as its own unique class, and discovering and trying to master the mechanics of each monster is pure old-school joy. Its anachronistic presentation won't be for everyone, and clunky controls make for a sometimes confusing crawl, but anyone looking for a tough-as-nails good time with plenty of personality will get more than their money's worth here.

Somewhat interested in this, just because it reminds me of Quest of Dungeons.

A dungeon crawler like this seems like it'd be right up my alley.. but the visuals don't look all that appealing. Going to it get it at some point (espcially for that low price) but probably not until I clear up my backlog a bit
