Summary

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?

It’s tough, but fair, seamlessly blending RPG-style upgrades into an action-platformer. As great as it was on the PC, it’s able to reach a whole new audience on consoles and the bite-sized nature of play sessions means it translates to the Vita perfectly. Those seeking a satisfying, skill-testing platforming experience will love Rogue Legacy. It puts a fresh coat of paint on a variety of well-worn gaming genres and ends up a must-play gaming experience.

Outside of that, I consider Rogue Legacy to be the most accessible and addictive roguelike I’ve played thus far and with the implementation of the cross-buy/save, it’s the perfect time to pick up the sword and succeed where your ancestors have failed.

Rogue Legacy's visual playfulness and willingness to tweak the gameplay with these traits builds a wonderful sense of discovery. ...These tiny, unique risks set Rogue Legacy apart from the various games it openly draws inspiration from — I've never played an action game or a perma-death driven RPG that succeeds the same way. ...It's only when Rogue Legacy gives up the eager, wide-eyed approach in exchange for difficulty that it loses some of its steam.
