    What a Punt - Rogue Legacy: The story of many odd heroes and heroines.

    Booting up the game I was greeted by a lovely 8-bit seaming castle with lots of colour, lovely and well crafted music setting the scene and not much else bar a button to get the ball rolling. Entering the whole game bli... Read Full Review

    A must play for people who love classic action/rpg games i.e. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

    I very rarely give a game a 10.00 unless it's deserved and Rogue Legacy is amazing!!! A tribute to the games that laid the foundation for what we have now. A classic side scrolling action/rpg at it's best. You have a ... Read Full Review

    Rogue Legacy review

    So to be blunt, RL has the difficulty of a Dark Souls game, but the appeal of a old school Castlevania game, but with a randomized castle each time you die and go back in. It's nice and keeps the game fresh with the cast... Read Full Review

    One....More....Run...

    Pros:Fan-service abound--Elements of Metroid, Naruto, Skyrim, Megaman, Warcraft, Dungeons & Dragons, etc., etc. The game walks the line between homage and copyright infringement, and we thank them for it. In additio... Read Full Review

    Great game but full of obvious unused potential.

    You are the heir of a lost hero and you must fight in a Castlevania-esque castle which is randomized in order to defeat 4 bosses and a final rival. You die and one of your three sons take where you left off (in upgrades,... Read Full Review

    Quirky, funny, and fresh take on the arcade dungeon crawler.

    Rogue Legacy is a hilarious and unusual approach to sidescroll dungeon crawling. The main innovation is that instead of having multiple lives, every new life is actually the next in the family line. When you die, your ... Read Full Review

    You'll Get Hooked Like a Big Tuna If You're Not Careful.

    I'll tell you some of what I can see right now: This computer, my neighbor's nice, clean backyard next to my pile of junk backyard, this mornings cereal bowl, a jar of opened salsa, a banana peel, and a container of TUM... Read Full Review

    Blast to the Past (with a twist)

    Rogue Legacy is a wonderful adventure in which you delve in the depths of a cursed castle, procuring treasures at your own peril. The game can seem punishing at first. The castle has randomized rooms that are teeming... Read Full Review
