Undertale is a top down RPG. It is reminiscent of old school 8 bit games. The interesting thing that it does the old rpg battle system spiced with a mini bullet hell in order to avoid damage. Instead of the traditional battles you may have against enemies you have the ability to spare your enemies through the mercy option. You can go through the entire game without killing a single monster.
The story of the games is extremely touching. You play as a child who was playing in a forest but fell down a hole that led down to the world of monsters. Then you are taken in by the motherly Toriel who only wants to protect you, but you are adamant on going home and thus begins your adventure. The monsters in this world aren’t necessarily evil except for the creepy flower
Undertale is filled with a cast of memorable characters that embody certain tropes in videogame and tv.
Overall I give this game a 9.5/10. The replayability is certainly lacking a bit in that department but the experience of going through the pacifist route and genocide route are worth the low price. The games soundtrack is also really great. It fits in so well with each of the characters.
