Critic Reviews for Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos
Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos is a fantastic Zelda-inspired, procedurally-generated, action-adventure with one of the most rewarding gameplay loops I've seen in some time. It perfectly captures the styles of its inspirations, while carving its own legacy as a standout Roguelike. I honestly enjoyed every second of my time with Rogue Heroes and can't wait to continue playing in the coming weeks.
Rogue Heroes isn't trying to be extraordinary, but for that very reason it ends up being a fantastic game. By not falling into the trap of doing too much, Heliocentric has delivered one of the best Zelda-inspired action RPGs on the market. And at such a modest price, you'd be doing yourself a disservice to not at least try Rogue Heroes.
Is there the perfect "Zeldalike"? Rogue Heroes would be the perfect example, as immediate in the first few minutes as it is complex and deep if you decide to try to complete it 100%, with a top-down perspective view made of pixel art and a story that leads us to travel in a world as varied as it is hostile. Although it does not achieve the excellence of its mentor, it stands out for interesting gameplay choices such as village management and an approach oriented to the open world experience. To play secret after secret alone, or in ramshackle runs with friends despite the repetitiveness of some sections and some graphic uncertainty.

Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos is a delightful Zelda-inspired roguelite that's chock full of secrets, surprises, and some top-notch dungeon crawling action. There's an excellent central hub area to evolve and expand here, lots of fun little side quests to indulge in and a well-designed overworld that takes full advantage of your hero's ever-growing armoury of weapons, skills and gadgets. There are perhaps a few too many skill trees and upgrade mechanics for our liking and the story is entirely forgettable, but overall this one comes highly recommended for co-op and solo adventurers alike.
