Crawl is a game of competition and co-op all at the same time. One player is a human who fights enemies, while three other players are ghosts. The ghosts' job is to kill the human in order to regain there humanity back and become the human. That player then becomes a ghost and tries to fight to become the human again. The goal of the game is to defeat a boss that you only have three tries to kill. After the third time, if the boss is not defeated, the ghosts win and human is the winner. If you're lucky enough to beat the final boss, the human is the winner!
The Human player is more of a tank that can take a bit more damage as well as level up unlike the ghosts. As a human you earn gold which can be used at the shop to buy new weapons, potions, and even skills. While a ghost you also earn blood which can be converted until gold once you become the human. It's a nice touch as it merges your experience between the world of the living and the dead.
My one suggestion for the game is for them to add online multiplayer. Now, the game provides bots which can be set on easy, medium, or hard. The AI is pretty spot on and isn't hard enough to the point you blame the game for you losing. Though nothing really replaces playing game with your friends online. In my case trying to raise kids and find the time to get my friends to physically come over is a little big hard for me so online multiplayer would be nice.
