Luckily, Loot Rascals is so charming that the permadeath is much less of a frustration than it is in most roguelikes. The world is bright and colorful, and there’s always a collection of new, laughably weird monsters to battle. Many of the cards you pick up are humorous too like a salt sock that prevents you from slipping on ice or an inflatable pool toy for a weapon. The game is like a cartoon version of Red Dwarf by way of Adult Swim.

Loot Rascals is a very fun implementation of the roguelike formula to a charming and colorful release. The quirky art style and character design are perfect for the game’s gameplay mechanics, and its soundtrack perfectly fits the game. This is a very addictive release that will keep you busy for many hours. It happened to me the first time I played it – before I noticed I had already spent four hours playing! I liked my time with the game so much that I’ve continued to go back to it even after writing this review, and that greatly speaks to the quality of this release.

With Loot Rascals, I feel like I can loot forever. Whether that's actually true has yet to be proven, but I'm going to have lots of fun figuring it out.

Loot Rascals is a game that oozes charm and character. It features bright and vibrant visuals with excellent character design and a soundtrack that fits perfectly. But behind that cute exterior is a very challenging game that will test your skills to their fullest. If you’re up for the challenge, be sure to give this one a try on PS4!

Perhaps it is the requirement of balance that made me love a game with such randomness behind it, as balancing my turns or the cards made me feel powerful in a world of beautiful chaos. I think Loot Rascals actually taught me something, which isn't something I say often about video games.

Loot Rascals is a quirky, unique roguelike that manages to simplify the genre without taking away the strategic bits that make roguelikes so much fun. My only major issue with it is that it lacks the level of variety that is really required for maximum replayability.

Loot Rascals is a unique roguelike whose bright and breezy presentation contrasts nicely with its intricate systems and ferocious difficulty.

Loot Rascals, like other roguelikes, might not be for everyone, but it is the game's charm and engaging approach to stat loadout and item management (as dull as that sounds) that make it enjoyable and helps turn what otherwise might have been frustration into a learning experience. Ultimately you might not get very far, but you won’t regret the time spent trying.
