A 2D action RPG in the fantasy convention from the independent developer Daniel Wright, featuring a classic view from above. DarkMaus’ story takes place in a land inhabited by humanoid rodents and other intelligent animals. The player takes control over a lone mouse warrior, traversing the world corrupted by darkness in search of anything worth saving. Gameplay focuses on exploration and fights with various monsters, offering arcade, but relatively slow-paced battles. Players are given classic character progression system and a wide array of equipment, including many types of weapons and spells. The game presents a quite high difficulty level, with the proper choice of equipment and tactics playing crucial role, along with dodging and blocking, which are often more important than reckless offensive actions.
