Kivi's Underworld Reviewed

Indie Games has published a new review of Soldak Entertainment's casual action RPG, Kivi's Underworld. Set in the same world as Depths of Peril, Kivi's Underworld allows players to adventure as one of 20 unlockable character classes against a variety of dangerous foes.
From the review:
So I read all this and foolishly thought meh, there can't be that much to it then, can there? And I was dead right - there is not much to it. But that's the absolute beauty of the game. It's just like the Soldak site advertises Kivi - 'a casual, hack and slash game'. That's exactly what it is and it's fantastic fun. Running around hacking bad guys to the ground, firing off rather lovely power-ups, collecting everything you find and searching for secret areas is what this game does and it never tries to be anything more than it actually is.Visit the site below to read the full review.
By focusing on being as simple as possible, the focus on making Kivi's Underworld brilliant to play is spot on and everything about it oozes polish. Map layouts, game menus, unlockable achievements - it all feels very nice indeed.
On top of all this, there's also a whole host of extra characters to unlock, each with their own special right-click powers and statistics, and each character is given a small bio to tie everything together. You can really feel the effort that has gone into making the game as full an experience as possible and the developers have definitely been rewarded for their pain-staking attention to detail.
Kivi's Underworld is great fun for both casual and more hardcore gamers. I'd bet that even the most casual player would end up sticking the story out for a good 10 hours, while completists will find themselves still at it for much longer.
