The Keep




The Keep 


Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code for The Keep on the Nintendo Switch. I am not educated into any physical copy versions of this game on the Nintendo Switch. If you play The Keep on your television set it might cut off some of the words which are kinds on things you can do with certain items. If you undock the Nintendo Switch then you can see the words just fine. Albeit they are a bit on the small side.

The Keep is a 582 meg download. Make sure you system has enough memory to handle this game. We get choices before we start playing this first person dungeon crawler. Do you want permanent death or not. I suggest you turn perma death off until you get used to playing The Keep. Everyone here at Family Friendly Gaming got stuck right in the beginning trying to figure out how to get past the first trap door.

The storyline in The Keep is pretty well worn. There is an evil in this town and we go as the hero to investigate. We get captured and thrown into the dungeon. We must then work our way back up to the evil Watrys and defeat him. Rumors lead to the downfall of the ruling council in The Keep. The Keep is a challenging game and there are plenty of puzzles to figure out.

The issues families can have with The Keep are violence, magic, loose controls and more. I had some serious problems with the controls in The Keep. I also did not immediately realize holding the button would throw something like a stone farther onto a pressure plate. Expect to die early and often in The Keep. The auto save can be handy in many places. The auto save can also hurt you.

How can the auto save in The Keep hurt you? I ran out of stamina fighting a rat with no weapons. I backed up while I fought to regain stamina. That was until I backed myself into a corner. That auto save was in the fight where I had little room to back into that corner and nowhere else to go. I had to restart the area. The Keep is a very unforgiving game.

There are plenty of slots to hold items. The music and voice acting in The Keep are cool. The graphics get darker with no lighting, and better with lighting. How does Watrys get around with all of these traps? The Keep is a game for the old school hard core first person dungeon crawler fans. The Keep is not for casual or family gamers in my professional opinion.
