Larva Mortus is a top-down action game where you play an agent in an occult crime-fighting organization. The fighting takes place across various missions that you select from a map. Some are “key” to the storyline and and some aren’t. The structure of each type is the same, however – make your way through a series of randomly generated rooms until you achieve your goal, whether its clearing the area of monsters, destroying profane altars, rescuing civilians, or what have you.

You get new missions with different objectives, the dungeons are randomly generated, there are different weapons and monster types. All looks well at first.
However, it doesn’t take more than an hour of gameplay to notice that levels aren’t really that different, monsters aren’t too diverse or even interesting and that the mission goals cycle through only few generic types. The whole game feels generic as hell actually.
It really isn’t that bad, but it gets boring pretty quickly and lacks any feature that would make it at least a bit memorable. There are many other top-down shooters that are simply better or just available for free.
