The Weaponographist is a high-speed, top-down dungeon-crawling arena combat game. You play as Doug McGrave, famous demon hunter for hire. Highest level, bestest gear, ruggedly handsome, and unrepentant jerk. For refusing to help a poor town plagued by demons, you are immediately, deservedly cursed. Your powers, your wealth, and your weapons – all gone. To overcome the curse, you’ll need to clear out the dungeon using whatever weapons you can find. Fighting your way through, you are forced to use the weapons and spells dropped by enemies, as they fall apart in your hands.
Fill up your combo meter by defeating evil, vanquish demons to regain your strength, and weaken the curse while you can. But beware. Whenever you aren’t attacking, your combo will quickly drain away, and the curse will continue to take its toll. Only by killing monsters quickly, adapting to new weapons, and slowly removing the curse in pieces can Doug make his way to the depths of the dungeon and get the heck out of this damned one-horse town.
Key features include:
- Rogue-like adventure in a fast-paced top-down arena filled with randomly generated paths to explore.
- Pulse-pounding weapon swaps requiring constant adaptation to defeat the enemy swarms.
- Frantic pace requiring constant engagement to catch and surpass the difficulty curve.
- Collect demon “goop” to strategically trade with Hellside vendors and gradually wear off this curse.
- Epic soundtrack from Christopher Hoag.

The Demo being shown at Rezzed dropped you into a quick game where you get the chance to learn the games’ feel and play style.
As a new player I found myself being cautious and playing safe, which at this time wasn’t actually in my favour. This game rewards daring and fast game play.
Not only did the game reward this but the Developer himself was running a competition for the fastest level run of each day and of the entire event, the top three to be sent free game codes for the Mastertronic’s back catalogue.
The game is colourful, fast and fun and a great game to play if you want to kill some time and hordes of enemies.
The enemy designs are original and the weapons you where able to pick up and use unique, as well as the magic power-ups.
