The games follows four adventurers as they descend into the Gungeon (a gun-themed dungeon) to find a gun to kill their past. The game present procedurally-generated levels to the player, where they fight enemies and acquire new guns with various behaviors through their journey.
A spin-off, Exit the Gungeon, which uses a platform game-approach instead of the top-down dungeon crawler but otherwise with similar mechanics, was first released on iOS in October 2019, and will release on computers and consoles in early 2020.
Enter the Gungeon is a fast-paced bullet hell shooter with roguelike elements, and is therefore often compared to The Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne. The player chooses one of four protagonists named the Marine, Convict, Pilot, and Hunter (more can be unlocked as the game progresses), all of whom have different special abilities, such as calling for support or lock picking chests. A second player is able to join in for co-op mode and control a fifth character. While the player descends the Gungeon, they are set to go through multiple floors, each with a random number of rooms in it. While the rooms are pre-defined, the constellation of rooms in a floor, the enemies that appear in the rooms, and treasure are procedurally generated. Each room contains a set of enemies, which vary in strength, endurance, and attack behavior, where the attack can range from simple, straightforward shots to a complicated mixture of shots fired at the same time. The player may dodge attacks by performing a dodge roll, which was inspired by the Souls series of video games, and are invulnerable during the action, or alternatively flip tables and use them as covers, although tables can be destroyed if they are shot at.
