There are no bells and whistles here. The job is simple: collect the loot and the increasing amount of keys over seven levels.
Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K Edition is the same game as released a few years back just with better graphics. Everything is simple and easy to understand and there is nothing else to it.
They dropped you in at the start of level 1, where you wander around the level and its ever-expanding map until you find all the keys on that floor. This unlocks the boss room. Kill the boss, move on until you kill the Serpent King.
There are few controls; move, attack, swap weapons, and jump. Most encounters boil down to stepping back when an enemy attacks and stepping in and hitting a few times and repeat until dead. This loop gets boring fast.
Between levels you can level up strength, health and speed with the exp collected on the floor. It is also possible to buy new weapons as you go. This is as in depth as it will get.
It Very Bland
Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K Edition level design is very dull. Each of the floors has their own look about them, but that look is the same for the level. Meaning getting lost is something that can happen very easy. I found it far more simple to get around by following the map, as each level looked the same.
This mixed with the dull combat. By level five, I was finding my will to continue waning, and I just wanted the adventure to stop.
Overall Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K Edition is a budget game, and it feels it through and through. There is very little to do and little entertainment to be had.
I would only recommend this one if you had nothing else at all to play.
