What is Roguelike? From the recent trending game “Hades“, we can see that this Roguelike game not only won the BAFTA Game of the Year, but was also nominated with multiple awards in the Dice Game Awards. Roguelike is a category of role-playing games. It uses a series of randomly generated seeds of dungeons, turn-based battles, and tile-based image quality, and the permanent death of the character (which is infinite resurrection in one game is not possible). Most Roguelike games are created on high fantasy story backgrounds, this is due to the influence of table role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons.
I believe that many players have not yet played or bought the game “Hades“, so it may not be clear for you. Here are a few examples to let you understand better what Roguelike feels like in a game category. Take “Binding of Isaac” as an example: randomly generated map seeds, direct death, and other elements can all represent a part of Roguelike, and even the developers themselves claim that it is the ultimate Roguelike game. Although it is a 2014 game, it’s still suited for rookie players who want to try a game in the Roguelike category. At present, Steam has a total of 110,000 ratings and 98% of positive reviews, and the original price of RM31 has also been discounted by 50% to RM15.50 right now. Buy it if you would love to try out roguelike games and maybe figure out more!
Also, Roguelike derives into action Roguelike, in fact, like the previous “Hades” and “The Binding of Isaac” can also be classified as action Roguelike, but the next game will be a third-person action Roguelike adventure “Risk of Rain 2“, although the introduction of the game is to allow players to survive on alien planets, discover powerful new items, unlock new gameplay, etc.
The gameplay is still very different from other Roguelike games. Because of the use of a 3D and third person, unlike most Roguelike games, which are played in 2D and from a top-down perspective, it will make the player feel familiar but not quite well. The second is that most Roguelike games are where players go through levels to slay the boss or to get an item, but the monsters in “Risk of Rain 2” will come to the players by themselves with their system, which surprises a lot of players. There are currently 98,000 reviews on Steam, and 96% of them which are positive, the price is the same as “Hades” at RM44. Sadly, there is currently no discount for the game at all.
Finally, let’s introduce a Roguelike game “LoopHero” from March this year! Although the painting style is retro 2D, it is a game that is loved by players from all over the country on Steam. 94% of the 14,000 reviews are positive reviews and the price is only RM35. The introduction of the game is that a Lich has plunged the world into an endless loop, and everyone has suffered from endless chaos. Players need to manipulate a stack of ever-expanding mysterious cards to set enemies, buildings, and various terrains for the heroic hero in each unique adventure cycle.
