A more recent title in the classic be the bad guy approach, Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Master is a rogue-lite reverse dungeon crawler with some interesting ideas that don’t quite have enough replay value yet.
Survive long enough to fulfill the role that the gods have bestowed upon you in a harsh post-apocalyptic fantasy world that seeks to kill you at every turn.
Build, fortify, and lead a city of displaced anthropomorphic rats as they do their best to survive in a hostile 2D world based around deck-building mechanics.
An entertaining tactical deck-building title, Trials of Fire is the first that I’ve played in the genre that can truly compete with the heavyweight that is Slay the Spire.
Bad North hasn’t ascended from its mortal failings to the gates of Valhalla; it’s a game that has let its shortcomings brew further into a refined mead fit for us mortals.
Combination of Enter the Gungeon and Stardew Valley? What? How does that even make sense?
A nice mix of Metroivania and Rogue-lite. Plus, cute owls to throw at enemies!
Style over substance was a great motto for the world of Cyberpunk 2020. It doesn’t work so well as a game design decision.
Through harsh winters, frozen rains and burned-away homes, Bad North is a lite-rogue-lite journey that makes you wish the journey was as big as the ocean when it’s really a dip in a nearby puddle.
Don’t judge a book by its cover…
