    I never thought i would see this but... Its.. like a Castlevania copy but.. actually better...

    I have not gotten hooked this badly on a indie game since FTL. This game is as close to perfect as an arcade game can get. Its basically a castle-dungeon-explorer with an awesome twist. You die, ...

    Pretty fun game, worth the 13 euro<br /> Currently very underrated by the gamespot user score of 6.3

    This is a fun rpg sidescroller probably best played with a gamepad. I am always on the look for a cheap hidden gem, like terraria, recettear, towns etc... And I found one. Gameplay: This game f...

    Wonderful random action filled adventure

    Rated on July 05, 2013 by Blue_Tomato

    This game is a mix of a 2D platform game and RPG. If you have ever played Castlevania, then this is basically the same thing. Explore a giant castle, find and kill the bosses. Use found treasure to bu...

    Great game, but may not be good for players who are easily frustrated . . . .

    It's been a while since I reviewed a game on gamespot, but I've been enjoying Rogue Legacy so I figured I'd let anyone interested in it know a little more about it. First off, Rogue Legacy is dif...

    Awesome game first 20 hours....

    Rated on July 08, 2013 by Act_Chill

    As you play the game you eventually die. When you die you can pick from 3 champs, the dungeon randomizes again, and off you go. At first you start to open new classes which allow for new game play. As...

    Mislead by initial critic reviews - understood you would get better a little at a time - just not how so little

    Rated on July 17, 2013 by beamer61

    The game is good, the premise is good. The frustrating play over is horrendous. You get a little better each time? not quite. more like 2 steps forward two back. In 20 hours I'm still in the first ...

    Horrid.

    Rated on July 17, 2013 by alexh111

    I've played the game for 28 minutes and lost 15 characters. I think, in short, I've spent more time getting to the castle than being in the castle. The game seems to be based on the idea that dying is...

    If only the controls were responsive enough...

    Rated on July 19, 2013 by Pyrosa

    Nearly everything in the review is accurate -- this is fun, challenging, and the procedurally-generated levels are generally fun. However the controls are just not quite up to the console-level r...

    Blast to the Past (with a twist)

    Rated on July 27, 2013 by MR_TUBBy

    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 ro...

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

    Rated on August 16, 2013 by Rotondi

    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, an...
