'Flame Over' blends the frantic pacing and challenge of 'Spelunky' with the trial-by-fire gameplay of 'Rogue Legacy' to create a new twist on the roguelike formula.

A charming and well-constructed take on the twin stick shooter, Flame Over endears itself greatly with easy to play, yet difficult to master mechanics which neatly avoid the frustration usually associated with roguelike titles.

Flame Over is never going to set the world on fire, but it's a deceptively enjoyable roguelike with a wholly original spin. It's a shame that the transition to the PS4 hasn't delivered a better learning curve, but this is still the same good game from the Vita – only it looks much better now. Take a bit of time to learn its systems, and this will grow on you like an out-of-control inferno. Just remember to have a bit of patience, or you will get burned.

Flame Over is a roguelike built on some interesting ideas, but its intuitive gameplay is in someway ruined and made harder by its technical carelessness.
