This is what players can expect in Children of Morta
What is the gameplay like in Children of Morta? The game combines elements of an action-adventure RPG with rogue-lite and hack-n-slash.
When you level up, not only a game character, but the entire family becomes stronger. There is no permatod in Children of Morta and before you go into a dungeon you can choose who you want to play between the individual characters.
Whenever you defeat opponents, you get skill points. You can use these in turn to make your characters even stronger.
Within the dungeons you will encounter different types of enemies, ranging from small animals to huge bosses. You also have to be careful of hidden traps, which you can also use in battle, as they also damage the enemy.
