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 vertigo-- 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.

9 / 10.0

A wildly inventive 2D Roguelike with a 30-second gameplay loop that lasts for 20 odd hours.

An inspired mix of roguelike and platformer that dares to be fair with its rewards and its penalties for death – although not necessary its random medical conditions.

This isn't the best challenging platformer in recent years, nor is it a replacement for Symphony of the Night and its ilk, but it's an interesting experiment with a compelling reward loop
