Vampire Survivors – Legacy of the Moonspell review

Someone once said you can never have too much of a good thing. And if that good thing in question is Vampire Survivors, then it comes to reason that there is never really enough of the game to go around. Poncle has released the first DLC, but is it worth the (small) price of admission? Find out in our Vampire Survivors: Legacy of the Moonspell review.

The DLC is clearly aimed at experts of the game, those who have already had their fair share of hours thrown in. Not because the new main level is a bit difficult – which it is – but also because most of the new additions to Legacy of the Moonspell will have to be unlocked before they can be used. Basically, the game asks you to go exploring around the huge new Mt Moonspell level and find out what’s going on.

The new level seems to go in a different direction from what the main game has shown us, with houses and caves that can be explored. In keeping with the theme, the new enemies in Mt Moonspell will also be of the Japanese variety, with various oni and big skeletons that can’t wait to crush us. What else is there? Lots of new weapons and eight new characters, again all will need some unlocking work.

But hey, if you are here reading this, you already know that secrets and tricks in Vampire Survivors are its soup du jour (or rather its pasta con la pummarola), so you’re in for a good time. For a couple of bucks, there’s a hefty serving of new gameplay that can be tried out, the price/quality ratio is of the usual high value. The new music tracks also rock quite hard, personally I like them even more than most in the main game.

What else needs to be said about Legacy of the Moonspell? It’s a quite exquite tasty asian dish that will prolong the flavour of your Italian minestrone and grant you quite a bit of Vampire Survivors fan. This is one you won’t want to miss out on.

Our Vampire Survivors: Legacy of the Moonspell review was made possible with a review key made available by the publisher. The DLC is available on Steam.

Vampire Survivors – Legacy of the Moonspell: For a couple of bucks, Legacy of the Moonspell adds a lot of new weapons, characters and a huge stage begging to be explored. Very recommended. Damiano Gerli

Damiano Gerli was born with a faithful Commodore 64 by his side. It taught him how to program basic adventure games and introduced him to new genres. Then, he fell in love with Sega -- while the Master System wasn't as powerful as the Genesis, it was where he played Sonic and Outrun. Years later, he got the idea that he was the most Sega-knowledgeable person in the world, so he opened a website in 1997, The Genesis Temple. Damiano is a gaming industry professional and historian, loves adventure and indie titles, but he never shies away from action and triple-A RPGs. Basically, Damiano is been writing about videogames for 20 years, with no plans to stop. Say hi to him on X at @damgentemp.
