Enter the Gungeon is a fast-paced radial shooter fused with a dungeon-crawler lootfest. The Gungeon challenges players to fight, dodge roll, and table-flip their way through an increasingly difficult series of floors to the bottom of the Gungeon. Each floor is filled with enemies, bosses, NPCs, shops, and secrets. Shops are managed by gunsmiths, bats are bullets with wings, chests are guarded by shelletons and the gundead, and every meaningful trope of the dungeon crawler genre is skewed through the scope of a high-powered rifle.
Players control of one of several misfits, each of whom are burdened by a deep regret. Seeking a way to change their past, these sorry few have made pilgrimage to a distant planet where a “gun that can kill the past” is said to be sealed in the deepest depths of an ancient temple to the terrifying might of firearms: the Gungeon.
