There are a handful of Apple Arcade exclusives we're stoked to see come to other platforms, and Exit the Gungeon – a "dungeon climber" spin-off loosely comparable to the all-time great Super Crate Box – is one such game. After several months on iOS, it's now eying a PC and console release "early this year."
"It's very arcadey, good for a breezy half-hour-or-less run, and lacking some of the depth inherent in Gungeon's debut by design," Chris noted in his review. "Exit the Gungeon is an interesting experiment and a clever way to keep the series going without copying what's already been done."
I haven't played it yet – after a few solid months, I bowed out of my Apple Arcade subscription – but I'll give the console version some serious thought (assuming Nintendo Switch is in the cards).
On Twitter, developer Dodge Roll Games also reminded us that there's a two-player lightgun game in the works – that'd be Enter the Gungeon: House of the Gundead – and it's heading to arcades.
Beyond the port news, Dodge Roll shared the latest sales figure for the game that started it all. Enter the Gungeonhas sold three million copies – a huge success and a testament to the team's generous updates. I feel like this studio has already earned enough goodwill to establish lifelong fans.
