About this game

Developer: Cellar Door Games
Content Rating: Everyone10+


Rogue Legacy is a 2D platforming genealogical rogue-lite where anyone can be a hero. You must traverse a procedurally-generated castle to uncover the secrets of your cursed heritage. You have only one chance though, as there is no redemption from death. Fortunately your lineage spawns like bunny rabbits, and there are plenty of successors willing to pick up the sword. Unfortunately genetics aren't a perfect science, resulting in children who suffer from a variety of different traits, such as blindness, dyslexia, and even irritable bowels syndrome. Do you have what it takes to uncover your family's history and redeem its honor?

Although not a perfect game Rogue Legacy does what it does well and manages to create a rather compelling game that mixes Rogue elements with RPG. There is also a story in the game, although it does often feel a little side-lined but to be honest I didn’t find this a detriment and in a game like this. You want to be constantly fighting and discovering things, not scrolling through pages of text making this bare-bones approach much more favorable.

Rogue Legacy is one of my favourite games of 2013 so far. It’s a hugely compelling mix of 2D action-platforming and Roguelike game design, with excellent pixel art and just the right level of challenge. It’s the wildly inventive traits system, however – and the fact that it’s meaningful – that really elevates Rogue Legacy. This is a game with a genuinely unique hook, and the gameplay stones to back it up. Clever, creative, and addictive as hell.

Rogue Legacy is a fantastic platforming adventure. While it's far from perfect, it's brilliance is in the way that it places a new spin on the genre. It masterfully gives players reasons to keep on coming back for more, building their legacy, and ultimately making a run towards the end game.
