Like The Binding of Isaac, play involves quick reactions and movement/shooting strategy. You choose one of four protagonists, each with different abilities - calling in support or lockpicking chests. You dodge bullets, flip tables for cover and shoot enemies to work through multiple floors and rooms, each with a set of enemies with varying strength, endurance, and attack behaviour.
As you progress you find and use the huge array of firearms. 300 different guns and items can be combined to achieve more powerful effects called Synergies. Then, to complete the floor you must defeat the boss who will grant you a special gun or item. You can also rescue non-player characters who then help the player upgrade between runs.
If you enjoy this game, there is a spin-off, Exit the Gungeon, which uses a platform game-approach instead of the top-down dungeon crawler.
