Pylon: Rogue just doesn't do enough right for me to recommend it. While I'm sure there will be plenty of hardcore fans, for most people, this is just going to be a hard pass.
Pylon: Rogue excels because it knows what it is: a rogue-like RPG about skill, precision, and stacking a crazy number of skills.
Pylon Rogue attempts to combine several good ideas in a way that just doesn't quite succeed on the level they hoped.
A colourful but tedious experience that never lives up to the excitement or intrigue of its idols.
Roguelikes and Hack & Slashes are nothing new together (Zombasite) but Pylon: Rogue puts a lot more emphases on the Roguelike elements as once you kick the bucket, that’s it. Start over. With only unlocked items remaining available to purchase in the shop, you’ll have access to a total of four characters and different weapon loadouts in order to try to beat bosses and beat the game before the monsters beat you into your xth grave.
