Severed review

A lop of fun.

Severed is a very innovative game for 2011. When touchscreen gameplay became a new phenomena we had no shortage of titles like Infinity Blade and Fruit Ninja pioneering ways to merge touchscreen input with the precise thrill of an action game.

DrinkBox Studios (Guacamelee!, Mutant Blobs Attack) has sought to replicate this already bygone fad in its latest Vita-exclusive first-person dungeon crawler Severed.
