Taking equal inspiration from hack 'n slash dungeon crawlers (procedurally generated dungeons, loot drops, etc) and Metroidvania-style platformers, the game aims to immerse you in its 2D fantasy world full of exciting treasure, deadly enemies, and abundant secrets.

    Players take up the role of a soldier passing through a remote mining town on their journey home from a long war. The town's miners have recently disappeared after breaching a long-forgotten temple far below the town, and reawakened an ancient slumbering evil. Now trapped in the town by supernatural forces, you're left with no option but to explore the mines below, battle enemies and bosses, and increase your abilities in hopes of finally escaping and returning home.

    Chasm is a shining example of the concept that it adopts, and although it doesn’t really do anything out of the ordinary as far as its core design is concerned, it does indeed offer an exciting adventure that’s neatly paced and brilliantly structured. There’s a few technical issues to be mindful of, such as a some visual blemishes and its slightly floaty controls, but for the most part, Chasm represents its genre remarkably well.

    Both the visuals and sound design have been done really well and without a doubt they fit the game play that’s present extremely well. I foundBoth the visuals and sound design have been done really well and without a doubt they fit the game play that’s present extremely well. I found the combat to be extremely enjoyable throughout my time with the game and it also has depth as well thanks to the upgrades you can use. There is a great selection of enemies for you to face along the way and the added variety here keeps things fresh and interesting for longer. They have got the perfect balance of being fair and challenging when it comes to the gameplay which in turn meant that I hardly ever got frustrated. Traversing through the rather large areas always felt rewarding because there’s a decent amount of secrets to be found in the nooks and crannies. I got confused a few times and sometimes it was difficult to find where you had to go next which was a little tedious. The controls didn’t always feel as responsive as they should’ve been which was also a bit annoying. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Chasm from a number of people and this was definitely a game I was looking forward to and thankfully I'm pleased to say that it didn’t disappoint. Throughout my time with the game it delivered a lot of fun and enjoyable moments and I really enjoyed how they made the gameplay fair and challenging at the same time. Another thing that makes this game stand out is the variety that’s present in a number of areas. This variety keeps things fresh and interesting throughout and each different enemy was a pleasure to defeat when in combat. Speaking about the combat I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by how much depth it had and when you combine that with the many upgrades you find along the way then you find that boredom never really comes to the surface. Another thing that keeps boredom away is the rewarding feeling when traversing the vast areas, but be warned you will more than likely get lost quite a few times which can be a little annoying. That being said in terms of problems Chasm doesn’t really have many at all and the problems it does have are only small and don’t really make much of an impact. This then means recommending Chasm is very easy because it provides you with a fun and rewarding experience from start to finish.
