Brotato Review

Brotato is very much like Vampire Survivors but you are a potato. If you like roguelike genre and brutally hard difficulty this is the game for you. Let's dive more into Brotato.
8Very Good
  • A lot of characters to choose from. Each have their own unique mix of advantages and handicaps
  • Plenty of different weapons/upgrades
  • Brilliant soundtracks and sound design
  • No in-depth map/level design
  • Play area feels a bit too small, which often results in you getting cornered by the enemy

Overall Gameplay

Brotato stands out with its incredible art style. The Binding of Isaac-like graphics, the little generic enemy slimes and mutants, the weird weapon upgrades make up a great gameplay. It plays pretty similarly to most of those other games like Vampire Survivors, only requiring you to use the WSAD keys and occasional clicking through shop menus or upgrade screens. Your character auto aims so you just have to escape and make yourself room to destory more enemies. The game feels accessible to every type of player with its easy control bindings and simple gameplay.

Although it might look like a bit overwhelming at first, once you figure things out and get the hang of it, it's the kinda game that you can just drop into at any time and get going right away.


At the end, this can be one of the best Vampire Survivors-alike games out there. Pretty deep options with a variety of builds, and every unlockable character plays differently, so tons of replayability. Music is fire to catch you up with the pace. And with its accessible price, this game is purely awesome.
