Rogue Stormers, despite its limitations and its defects, has managed to amuse and entertain us. It is not a perfect game, but it represents a great challenge for all those who appreciate this particular genre and very challenging videogames.

Rogue Stormers is a decent, hectic shooter with a good co-op mode and a gameplay full of explosions and chaos. Unfortunately, it could have dared a little bit more: the bestiary is pretty lackluster, and the sense of progression is very, very slow, insanely tied to the number of enemies killed.

A pretty colourful and fast run 'n' gun with many ideas and... technical problems.

Rogue Stormers does an interesting genre mixing of platforming, run-and-gun, and RPG elements. On paper this seems like it could be pretty cool, however, it's all very slow given the genre, and there is not much really going on beyond crawling forward a little at a time and killing trash mobs running forward. There are perks, equipment, and other RPG trappings, but they are just filler that do not get around the main problem that this simply isn't that fun. Its style and ideas are interesting, but each level feels the same, and the very root of the entire system is not interesting enough to really encourage any desire to play for any length of time.

Eliminating the rough edges and making the leveling up actually fun and frequent would go a long way to improving Rogue Stormers. It drips compelling things every now and then, but those don’t justify all the grind and frustration that lords over them.

Rogue Stormers is beautiful to look at, and its fast-paced music really fits the game’s energetic presentation. The permanent upgrades are a nice change from how the usual permadeath mechanics quick in for roguelike releases. The more you play, the better you’ll get at defeating everything the game throws at you. I definitely liked my time with the game for my Rogue Stormers review, and hopefully you wil as well!

Rogue Stormers is a fun 2D shooter that combines nostalgia well with modern day gaming mechanics. The randomness of the levels and perks keeps each playthrough relatively fresh and makes a great game to come back to every so often to have a bit of fun with. Despite some slightly grating sound effects and a few technical hitches with multiplayer and enemies hiding in the environment aside, it is well worth a play.

Rogue Stormers' reward system encourages you to plug away at the same stages repeatedly, perhaps getting a little farther each time, until you finally beat it.

When I first picked up Rogue Stormers I felt a sense of longing for games passed, just like Contra and Metal Slug, but the reality of Rogue Stormers brought those daydreams to a halt. It’s poor execution and rather clunky controls stopped me from truly investing myself and instead started to question should this type of game really make a return.
