Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer is a charming mashup between roguelike rhythm game Crypt of the NecroDancer and the Legend of Zelda. Cadence of Hyrule takes the beat-driven gameplay and rhythmic combat of the original NecroDancer and incorporates it into a new game set in Hyrule.
Players can explore the randomly generated world and fight bosses in procedural dungeons as Link, Zelda, or Cadence, all while moving to the beat of remixed Zelda tunes. The game supports co-op play for up to two players, so feel free to recruit a dance partner to join in on the fun as well.
Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer received critical praise following its debut in June, earning an 86 Metascore and 8.2 User Score on Metacritic. If you enjoy the classic Zelda games and are interested in a bit of toe-tapping combat, then the free demo of Cadence of Hyrule is certainly worth trying.
