Cutesy and clever, this repeatable adventure captures many of the addictive qualities that made its inspirations into phenomena
The only real downside is that there's not more to it.
Roundguard's genre innovations are novel, but they fail to distract from poor roguelike progression and a general lack of depth. It's a whimsical arcadey diversion, but not much more than that.
Gameplay is Roundguard's strongest suit. It manages to combine a number of unique gameplay elements into a cohesive game that works extremely well. Some mechanics aren't 100 percent perfect, but there's not much to complain about. It's a short experience, but Roundguard is a novel idea that was executed very well.
Not only is it a hoot to play, Roundguard looks great thanks to a bright and bold cartoon art style.
Considering Peggle hasn't seen the light of day in a long time, Roundguard now carries the torch while offering plenty of fun twists.
Roundguard is a game of the Dungeon Crawler genre in which we have multiple characters with unique abilities that will have to survive in dynamic and changing scenarios.

There are so many roguelikes being released every single week, it’s no surprise that some of them end up being as forgettable and underwhelming as Roundguard. It’s a game that might have a creative premise, but fails to deliver due to its hideous visuals, disappointing soundtrack, and lack of replayability.
