Daggerhood – Xbox One Review

Daggerhood is another game following in the shadow of Celeste, another retro platformer with twitchy speedy controls……and a lot of spikes!

The game has a fairly minor background story but it is of little consequence to the game itself, Thief (you) gets caught, thrown into a cavern as punishment and off we go stealing gold, valuables and escaping yada yada, you’ll jump straight into the game and be shown the basics very quickly.

Each level has five pieces of treasure for you to collect and a fairy that is time limited so you really need to be speedy to get there and get it fast before it vanishes, there isn’t a massive amount of variation between the levels and nothing hugely inventive that gets added through the other worlds either.

The main novel feature I did enjoy was being able to throw your dagger and then teleport to where the dagger is, this mechanic makes things a bit more interesting.

However the game is fairly enjoyable while you stay with it, you just may not stay for a long time.

There are five worlds to play through and twenty levels in each world, the game comes with 1000 gamerscore which you would expect you would pick up as you work through all the worlds…

Well listen here all you Gamerscore hunters, you can get the whole 1000 by the time you hit the level 13 in the first world if you do all the challenges, I had racked up nearly 700 gamerscore within the first 10 minutes!

I’m not averse to games like this but I do find that unless the game is a really great game and I’m really enjoying it I’m unlikely to come back and finish those levels that I didn’t get through without that little added enticement of acing that last achievement.

Anyone who says that you can’t buy Gamerscore needs to check this out you can basically buy 1000 gamerscore for £4.99 as you will likely get the whole lot in 30-60 minutes.

Overall the game is fairly good fun to play for a short time if you like platform games and/or if you love collecting Gamerscore then knock yourself out.
