Diorama Dungeoncrawl – Master of the Living Castle from eastasiasoft and Renegade Sector Games is a low-poly bite-sized 3D action game on PlayStation. This publisher and indie dev combo has previously given us low-poly 3D beat ‘em up Breakneck City, low-poly 3D action shooter Thunder Kid: Hunt for the Robot Emperor, as well as its low-poly sequel Thunder Kid II: Null Mission, so you can probably see a pattern. Oh, and they also gave us low-poly third-person shooter Escape from Terror City!

As for this one, the controls for this one are simple and to the point. You’ll move your character with the left analog stick, jumping with the X or L2 buttons and attacking with the Square or R2 buttons. You can also unleash a charge attack – which consumes some energy – by pressing and holding down the Square or R2 buttons. That’s all you’ll have to worry about as you run and jump through each of the seven blocky levels on offer.

Each level will have a mini-boss as well as a boss for you to take on. Since you don’t have a lot of health, you should take things slowly as you try to figure out their movement and attack patterns. As long as you pay attention and learn from your mistakes, you’ll be able to beat all the bosses on your path. The good news is that there are many checkpoints in each level that you can activate, which will make it so that you don’t lose a lot of progress when you fail. Oh, and mini-bosses will start to pop up on subsequent levels as regular enemies while having less HP and being smaller.

The game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, and since it’s a Cross-Buy title, if you have a PlayStation 5 console, you can download both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, with each one having its own separate list. It’s a short list with 11 gold trophies, and you should be able to get all of them in one go if you manage to collect a health pickup and a special item. If you need some extra tips, you can check out this Diorama Dungeoncrawl – Master of the Living Castle Trophy Guide.

Diorama Dungeoncrawl – Master of the Living Castle is a low-poly bite-sized 3D action game on PlayStation that doesn’t manage to stick the landing. It’s a bit of a one-note experience in which there’s not much to do, and the controls feel a bit stiff, with the camera’s perspective not helping you land some jumps. Diorama Dungeoncrawl – Master of the Living Castle is available as a Cross-Buy title, so your $9.99 purchase will allow you to download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
