Spellbook Demonslayers: Oblivion Update Adds New Spellbook and More

Spellbook Demonslayers Xendra

Are you looking for a game similar to Vampire Survivors? If so, you should check out Spellbook Demonslayers because it received a massive update that makes it even better.

Spellbook Demonslayers is a 2D roguelite bullet heaven inspired by Vampire Survivors and Path of Exile. Basically, you start with a spellbook companion with skills and bonuses to boot. Then, as you level up, you not only gain new spells but you can also improve existing ones.

New Spellbook

Just recently, developer Xendra released the Oblivion update that introduced the new spellbook - Vella. Vella gives you the starting spell, Domination, that lets you carve up nearby demons with ease. But what makes it special is that if you hit elite enemies with it, they are summoned upon death, boosting your power in the process.

Vella gives you some starting bonuses as well, such as a 20% increased orb recovery effect and a 7% damage multiplier against elites.

New Mechanics

The Oblivion update also introduced two new mechanics. The first is the Corruption system where the game's difficulty scales endlessly as you increase the Corruption level. Each Corruption grants enemies 1% damage, 2% protection, and -1% knockback. You can raise the limit by completing a game with Max Corruption.

The second new mechanic is called Demon Summoning. This allows you to equip a selection of demons that grant you passive bonuses during battle. However, you can gain more powerful buffs when you summon them into Stasis, which temporarily suspends them inside a Shrine for a burst of power based on the chosen demon.
