Regardless of these minor irritations, I've very much enjoyed my time with Dandy Ace and will no doubt continue to play for a while, at least until I find a way to beat Very Hard mode! I've saved the best for last, though, as interestingly enough a big update recently released that started fixing a lot of mine and many others' complaints.

Dandy Ace delivers as challenging roguelike, with difficult enemies and bosses galore. The use of cards allows players the freedom to fine-tune their loadout to be the most efficient for their respective playstyle. Add on top of that the visually pleasing art style and use of color, and you’ve got yourself one magical roguelike.

Dandy Ace is a sensational roguelike that can contend with the very best the genre has to offer. Although gameplay can get a little repetitive, its colorful visuals and well-thought-out combat mechanics more than make up for that. This is a challenging yet fun game that is well worth your time.

Rogue-Lite showed freshness. Card magic without a fixed form makes the battle free. A mix of four active skills and four passive skills can create a thousand builds. However, the characteristics between the builds are not clear, so the characteristics of various builds cannot be found, and the feeling of play in the early and late stages are similar. Therefore, it was difficult to feel the joy of playing multiple times even though it was a Rogue-Lite game.

Dandy Ace is a colorful, magical action roguelike that’s consistent in its design and fascinating in its unique theme choice. With its card combination system for skills at the forefront, it can offer some good hours of fun and experimentation during battles.

Dandy Ace will probably suffer the unfortunate (and totally unfair) burden of being eternally compared to Hades, which is basically the most perfect roguelite of all time. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a fantastic roguelite in its own right, as well as packed with unique ideas and gameplay elements that make it stand out among the rest of its peers.

Dandy Ace is roguelike fun dialed up loud.

Dandy Ace is a fun roguelike with a memorable cast of characters and a unique combat system, but it lacks enough evolution between difficulties to offer motivation beyond just the challenge of completing it.

Dandy Ace proves to be a great action roguelike. Its most notable aspect is the flexible spell card system that allows mixing effects in countless ways, explored in combats that require constant readaptation - part of the fun is precisely finding powerful combinations of attacks. A stylish universe with charismatic characters makes the adventure engaging, and there's plenty of content to unlock. However, the limited variety of maps and situations can bring a sense of repetition in the long run. In the end, Dandy Ace is a frantic experience that is worth checking out.
