Product Description

Edition: Steam

Rogue Legacy is a genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero.

Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Every child is unique. One child might be colorblind, another might have tourettes-- they could even be a dwarf.

That's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be perfect to win this game. But you do have to be pretty darn good because this game is HARD. Fortunately, every time you die all the gold you've collected can be used to upgrade you manor, giving your next child a step up in life and another chance at vanquishing evil.

But you shouldn't listen to me. You should check out the trailer. It explains the game better then I ever could.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard but entertaining July 25, 2013
A friend of mine purchased this game for me on Steam. I had seen him play it and was intrigued. After playing this game for approx 30 hrs since Sunday night I am a huge fan. This game is very hard and at points you will want to throw stuff at your monitor but you just can't put the game down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mega Man meets Castlevania October 1, 2013
The Good: Great graphics and music, solid controls, challenging platforming, random dungeons, rebirth system is addictive

The Bad: Can get tedious in long sessions, no level variety, can be way too hard most of the time

2D platformers have had a huge comeback in the past 5 years, but non of them really offer great challenge. Rogue Legacy offers a lot replay value thanks to the randomly generated dungeons and characters. I love Rogue's character selection system. You get to pick between three different people and when you die their attributes make an offspring that is similar. Some characters walk upside down, some have extra strength, health, MP, HP, and various other passive effects. This is really neat and some times you are forced to choose one particular character so the other bad genes are wiped out on your next death. You can upgrade your weapons at each rebirth and you can give up 30% of all gold you find to lock down the castle if you liked the previous lay out. When you enter the castle you must forfeit all your gold so you start from scratch. This is a cool feature and doesn't really get in the way.

When you actually play you will be greeted with great controls and fast paced and challenging combat that's similar to Mega Man and Castlevania. Breaking open objects gives you gold or items, and enemies can be really tough and fast. You have to stay on your toes because you can die really easy. I died around 15-20 times before I even got to the first boss. You also get items that use MP kind of like in Castlevania. Honestly this game felt like Castlevania meets Infinity Blade which isn't a bad influence. I wasn't frustrated because some times the rebirth was for the better. After a while it gets kind of hard so it's only fun in short bursts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Immersive July 27, 2013
Edition:Steam|Verified Purchase
This game really grabs your attention and you really get into it. It is EXTREMELY difficult. Usually the difficulty is caused by your own ineptitude but in a couple of very infrequent scenarios it feels rather cheap. It's very fun and easily worth 15 bucks for this action platformer.

4.0 out of 5 stars You will love Rogue Legacy April 1, 2014
By Sly
Just an overall excellent roguelike. If you loved The Binding of Isaac, you will love Rogue Legacy. It's the same kind of procedural try-and-die, where every death you feel like "Damn no I can do better" and you try again, and again and again.
The persistent upgrades make it really worth your while, and the various funny traits give a refreshing turn to each play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of painful FUN! December 17, 2013
Retro graphics and sound. 2D platformer sharing elements with Rogue, Castlevania, and Metroid. I actually purchased the game on Steam. I have spent endless hours running around, discovering new things, trying to overcome challenges and collect gear. Plenty to collect, and it's interesting to mix and match determined on the type of character you build. Interesting way of progression as well. If you like an old school challenge but kept light hearted, this is the game for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult but fun game with randomly generated dungeons December 12, 2013
Note: I posted an update at the end. I wrote my original review after a few hours of gameplay. The update reflects 18 hours of game time.

This is a really fun game. I've been hooked on it the last two or three days. You start with one hero and you venture off into the castle. The layout is randomized each time you play. You fight enemies, leap over spikes, the usual platform game challenges. I don't really like platform games, but this has become an exception. I'm not very skilled with these types of games and my character dies A LOT. But every time you run through the game, you collect money, runes, and equipment to build yourself up. You also gain levels which appears to boost hp/mp.

When you lose, you start again, purchasing your upgrades, then venturing into a new castle totally unlike the one you last explored. There's an option to lock them down (for a 40% cut in gold intake), but it means that when you go back in any treasure chests you opened are already used, so you have to explore deeper to find new treasure. Each time you start again, you choose a new hero, which can range from spell casters to strong melee to heavy armor/high hp, to low hp spelunkers that reveal chests on the map. It's a nice variety. Also, some of the characters have status effects like "colorblind" where the levels are black and white, which can add challenge by making it more difficult to separate some enemies from the backgrounds. There is also near-sightedness which creates a blur on the screen outside a certain range of vision. There's even one that makes you play the game upside-down. I tried that one once and avoid it at all costs now.

I think the main draw of this game is that you can load this up with the intention of killing 20-30 minutes and it's still fun 2 hours later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Megaman, but with a sword, and humor. November 14, 2013
Edition:Steam|Verified Purchase
Gamecode linked directly to Steam.
Gameplay is a lot like Megaman, except with a sword. All classes play similar, with perks between them. After every time you die, you get to choose your heir, then upgrade your skills and equipment, then continue your quest into the castle. Each heir has different personality traits that could be good, bad, or just funny. The layout of the castle changes every time (unless you take a gold penalty to keep it the same), so the gameplay stays fresh, but doesn't change so much that you're completely lost. Plenty of PG humor in the game, a few times I literally laughed out loud. Definitely worth it if you enjoy fast paced, fast reaction, fast decision games like Megaman.

9/10, would (and have) recommend to friends.
