A multiversal master of none, with a messy but intriguing combat system at its core.
Star Renegades is a love letter to tactical RPG fans who have been craving a rogue-lite experience that keeps on giving. While not quite at the mastery of Into the Breach in terms of depth, Star Renegades has enough to be excited about.
Gorgeous pixel art, a massively deep combat system, and the pure elation that can only be earned from vanquishing nigh-unstoppable foes makes for a solid package of fun in Star Renegades.
Gorgeous pixel art graphics and one of the best turn-based combat systems of recent years can't quite make up for an obnoxious script and frustrating role-playing elements.
Beautiful, deadly, repetitive and harsh, Star Renegades is a stylish adventure worth playing
Star Renegades revives the magic of the turn-based RPG battle.
Massive Damage’s Star Renegades is a really solid roguelite, despite lackluster campaign elements.
Star Renegades has some great ideas; the characters are solid, likeable and believable, and the world is intriguing, but it may be too punishing for some.
So yeah, it has more than a bit of roughness to it. But hoo boy, do I admire its spirit, its extra-ness, its enthusiasm for small-scale RPG design.
Star Renegades is a perfect hybrid of a tactical RPG and roguelite battling system, with easy to comprehend mechanics. As you level so does the enemy, making the threat ever increasing and prominent throughout the whole playthrough. The unique maps with boundless variations sprawling over three varying planets will keep you coming back for more. The breathtaking visuals are more than enough reason to play this game and fight against the Imperium!
