Sometimes, a good dungeon-crawler is a great distraction, if you focus on it in bursts. Kill to Collect has elements of strategy, solo, or multiplayer cooperative play and reaction-driven gameplay that's great in small doses. Played over a prolonged session, the game can be somewhat repetitive, but for those shorter gaming sessions, it has the right attitude and combat pacing to keep players involved. The setting is nice, and the artwork works well to keep the general theme of the story. There's no blood as the enemies or even the player is defeated, although each character flashes when taking damage and the damage meter drops. Adding to the challenge is the fact that health potions don't regenerate a player to full health, and the economic system (players pay to upgrade equipment or to gain more health) drives the gameplay. Additionally, the difficulty settings -- even at the easiest -- can be challenging and may provide some frustration for younger players. Another big issue is that finding others to play multiplayer sessions with can be a bit of a challenge, but this might pick up as more players buy the game. There's nothing unique about the game in terms of the genre or combat style -- if you think a modernized Diablo, you're on the right trail -- but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Overall, Kill to Collect is a reflex-based game that provides lots of entertainment in short sessions.
