Every story has a beginning. But this one starts at the end. You just killed the last boss. Great. Now what? The only thing you remember is that you’ve lost your memory. Well, at least you’re still able to teleport yourself… a few meters. Is that it? Play the role of Kurt and discover a fun, old-school 2D platform game with a multiplayer mode. Explore over 40 levels as you try to recall your memories and look for the way back to… well... wherever it is you came from.

Roving Rogue failed to really capture my interest throughout the entire adventure, but from a raw gameplay perspective I had some fun with the platforming bits. You'll enjoy it even more with friends.

Roving Rogue is okay, but I got bored after awhile.  Once you learn how teleportation works, there's not a lot of challenge, as any enemies introduced as the game progresses are easy to either defeat or avoid entirely.  If it ever goes on sale in the eShop I'd say give it a shot, but if you're looking for a challenge, you'll want to look elsewhere.

Players looking for a speedy dose of platforming action might be able to find their fix here, but they're going to have to slog through a number of missteps on the way.

In the end, Roving Rogue makes a bit of a splash with its interesting means of storytelling, but that's about it. From the frustrating controls to the uninspired level design, the rest of the game falls pretty flat.
