  • Genres: Metroidvania, roguelike, platformer
  • Mode: Single player

Rogue Legacy provides the players with complete control over the whole bloodline of the mighty knights, and I can’t help feeling quite guilty about it. The reason for this is that payers are allowed to exploit every single generation of powerful knights just to be able to exploit every gold that Castle Hamson has.

The action of stealing gold from other castles is essential to establish your own fortune, ensuring the survival of your progeny as well as increasing the armor and damage of your whole army. As soon as you die, you will be automatically revived, and you may pick which type of class, magic ability, and status that you want your knight to have.

One way to play this is by gathering enough coins so that you will be able to make the next generation of a knight to be stronger than the previous one so that eventually you will be able to defeat the big boss.
