Rogue Legacy is a genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero. Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Every child is unique. One child might be colorblind, another might have vertigo-- they could even be a dwarf. That's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be perfect to win this game.

Steam Big Picture

Riguardo questo gioco

Rogue Legacy is a genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero.

Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Every child is unique. One child might be colorblind, another might have vertigo-- they could even be a dwarf.

That's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be perfect to win this game. But you do have to be pretty darn good because this game is HARD. Fortunately, every time you die all the gold you've collected can be used to upgrade you manor, giving your next child a step up in life and another chance at vanquishing evil.

But you shouldn't listen to me. You should check out the trailer. It explains the game better then I ever could.

If you really want to READ about this game though, then you should check out our bullet list below.
  • Here's what Rogue Legacy IS:
  • A procedurally generated adventure. Explore new castles with every life.
  • Rogue-lite. Your character dies, but with each passing your lineage grows and becomes stronger.
  • Tons of unique traits that makes each playthrough special. Ever wanted to be dyslexic? Now you can!
  • More than 8 classes to choose from (9)! Each class has unique abilities that change the way you play the game.
  • Over 60 different enemies to test your skills against. Hope you like palette-swaps!
  • Massive, expandable skill tree. Rack in the loot to upgrade your manor and give your successors a cutting edge.
  • Oh yeah, there's a Blacksmith and an Enchantress shop but we forgot to show them in the trailer...
  • Equip your heroes with powerful weaponry and armor. Or gain new abilities like flight, dash, and air jumping.
  • Tons of secrets and easter eggs to uncover... or are there? Yes there are.
  • Got a controller? Play with a controller. Big Picture ready.
  • Clowns.

Prendete Ghost and Goblins, unitelo a Dark Souls, comprate armature, armi e potenziamenti, ogni volta che morite poi potrete scegliere il vostro erede, ognuno con determinate abilità. Inoltre il generatore infinito di livelli garantisce ore e ore di divertimento che vi faranno dire "ancora un tentativo e poi spengo", ma la realtà è che non spegnerete mai e farete le 3 o 4 di notte. Consigliatissimo.

Suggerisco di tenere un calendario vicino, per una bestemmia più facile e meno ripetitiva.

Platform 2D davvero bello.

La particolarità, davvero inusuale, è che più giochi, più diventa facile, perchè sebbene sia prettamente un roguelike, c'è un sistema di upgrade davvero molto ampio e vario che permette di migliorare permanentemente il proprio pg a seconda di quanto bottino si è fatto nella run appena conclusa.

Pg che può avere svariate classi e tratti particolari (positivi negativi e inutili, come quello delle scoregge, che a me fanno morire dalle risate XD ) , oltre che equipaggiamento diverso.

SI può rigiocare più volte una volta completato il gioco, e diventa sempre più difficile.

Davvero consigliato, ma davvero tanto!

Rogue Legacy è estremamente divertente anche se inizialmente risulta ostico.
Nonostante a ogni morte si ricominci da capo, in un castello le cui stanze sono disposte in maniera casuale in ogni partita, il personaggio che muore lascia in eredità ai posteri il denaro accumulato, permettendo così di acquistare nuove abilità o acquistare migliorie all'armamentario, che saranno disponibili per tutti i posteri a venire (ecco spiegata la legacy del titolo). Si è quindi decisamente spronati, dopo ogni sconfitta, a fare nuovi tentativi.

Obbligatorio il gamepad - certe sezioni sono davvero frenetiche.

Anche qui, santi che cadono in picchiata e gamepad che volano verso la finestra: ottimo quindi il livello di sfida :D

Questo gioco è una droga. Sembra banale ma arrivato a 3 ore di gioco non riesci più a staccarti
I potenziamenti sono tantissimi, così come anche le classi sono tantissime e i mostri...bhe...alcuni vi faranno incavolare tantissimo XD
E' un gioco da provare. Lo consiglio caldamente a tutti, in particolare a chi piacevano i vecchi castlevania in 2D

Rogue Legacy invecchia davvero bene, senza accusare in alcun modo il passare del tempo. Il gioco continua ad essere un gioiello indiscusso, finalmente disponibile anche per gli utenti console delle piattaforme Sony. Tutti i casual gamer e i meno pazienti forse non apprezzeranno il fascino di questa produzione indipendente, ma i giocatori più hardcore e navigati non potranno fare a meno di innamorarsi di un titolo che, siamo certi, rimarrà negli annali della storia videoludica. Lo consigliamo senza riserve.
+ Impegnativo, longevo, divertente, bilanciato
+ Sistema di gioco stratificato e profondo
+ Grafica deliziosa
+ Tanta ironia
- Inadatto ai casual gamer

Rogue Legacy è un platform 2D particolarmente ostico sin dalle prime battute, in alcuni momenti sa essere molto, ma mooolto frustrante, ma se inizierete a giocarci, non lo abbandonerete più!
Gli sviluppatori hanno puntato tutto sulla varietà, sull'offrire un gioco stile old-gen ma con più features possibili per tenere sempre alto il divertimento. Ad ogni morte (le morti saranno tantissime!!!) avrete a disposizione 3 personaggi generati casualmente, e voi dovrete scegliere con chi iniziare l'avventura. Quindi si passa alla fase di acquisto potenziamenti/equipaggiamenti, per cui sarà fondamentale trovare quanti più soldi possibile in ogni run. Inoltre ogni volta che morite, potete scegliere se lasciare il castello cosi com'era nella run passata o farlo rigenerare totalmente (tesori COMPRESI!!!). E' come se giocaste a tanti livelli diversi dello stesso gioco! Infine, nel castello avete a disposizione di tutto e di più: tesori, nemici, dungeon, boss e mini-boss ed aree esplorabili! Occhio però a non esplorare troppo nelle prime fasi: il castello è diviso in 4 grandi aree, ognuna infestata da nemici di potenza differente, quindi se capitate nell'area sbagliata potreste morire in un paio di colpi!
La profondità e la varietà di armi, equipaggiamenti, potenziamenti e nemici che potete trovare in Rogue Legacy è sorprendente, il prezzo è sicuramente accessibile, la longevità è molto alta e la rigiocabilità è esagerata grazie ai NG+. Avete un milione di buoni motivi per non lasciarvelo scappare! Consigliatissimo!

I first played Rogue Legacy at a friend's place, trading off the controller at each death. It wasn't much, but it got me instantly hooked on how fun it was. So hooked, that I downloaded Steam, bought the game for the full $15, and bought a $30 wired Xbox 360 controller... and I don't even have any Xboxes. All this for this one game... and it was worth it.

Rogue Legacy plays like Castlevania and Super Ghouls N Ghosts. You move, jump, attack, and use a secondary weapon. The uniqueness comes into play when you die, which you will... a lot. Once you die, you will be brought to a selection of three hiers to play as next. Each one has a random character class, secondary weapon, and set of traits. Classes determine certain stats and abilities. Secondary weapons, or spells as they are called, use up MP. That's all pretty basic stuff. But the traits are very interesting. Some traits are helpful, like a speed increase. Others are harmful, like giving your attacks no enemy knockback. And some are just... well... neutral things... like making everything black and white. Your heirs have a chance of having two, one, or none of the traits at random. With all the random factors, you have to really get lucky... or pick the lesser of three evils. Is getting your prefered class worth the traits? Are the spells to your liking? It also makes you think about the next area... skills.

After selecting your heir, you are then brought to a skill tree. You inhereit the gold of your dead relatives I guess, and you can spend it on upgrading all kinds of things, from stats, to passives, to new character classes. Do you want to build up a magic or melee character? Maybe focus on a specific class? Or do you want to play it safe and try to build up well rounded skills to work with the random factos? It's a lot to consider when purchasing points in the skill tree. And be careful. Every time you buy an upgrade in the skill tree, all of the others become more expensive. So plan accordingly. And try not to spend it all in one place because...

... there's another screen. Yes, another screen where you can do even more character customization. IF you buy them in the skill tree, you can open up three different shops outside the caslte: The blacksmith, the enchantress, and the architect. The blacksmith sells you armor and swords with different stats and perks, but you'll need to find the blueprints first so he knows how to make them first... some blacksmith, eh? The enchantress does roughly the same thing. She sells you enchantment of your armor and sword after you've found the appropriate runes. The big difference is that the blacksmith's wares have weight, meaning you can only carry certain pieces until your carrying capacity improves, while the runes are weightless. It give you lots of customization options between the two and the skill tree. The architect has only one purpose. He locks down the castle. The levels are randomly generated every time enter, but if you agree to give the architect a percentage of your gold on the current life, he will lock down the previous map so that you are not lost in a random new place. This can be helpful for retrying bosses, but be warned. Enemies will be back, chests will cannot be reopened, and as mentioned your gold gain is reduced for this entire life. So consider it for saving time and getting around.

Lastly, at the gates of the castle, you are faced with Charon, the gatekeeper. He will allow you to enter at the cost of all of your gold. This is where a lot of the motivation is built for the game. You'll want to spend as much gold as possible between the skill tree and the shops since you'll be losing it all anyway. You can't simply keep amassing gold over a number of lives. If you want a nice, expensive upgrade, you'd better not die and keep getting that gold. It's a nice way to give death some gravity, as getting upgrades and new characters already seems like REWARDING you for dying, and that needed to be checked and balanced somehow.

The basic goal is to become strong enough to survive the four areas, beat their bosses, and then defeat the final boss. There are lots of cool extra things to find along the way, like super bosses, passive items, challenge rooms, and even some cool secrets here and there. The game CAN become grindy, and if you don't enjoy grinding, then you might get a little upset at the difficulty. However, you always have the option to not buy anything and just try to beat the challenges old school style. Nothing bars you from doing so. So it's a nice duality. The game also goes from being a platformer in the earlier stages to being more akin to a bullet hell in the later ones. Master your movements, improve your aim, and pick your battles.

No game is perfect, so I had a few complaints. My main gripe with the game, though it's not a HUGE one, is that it doesn't really give you much incentive to stay alive. There's the thrill of getting more gold to get more upgrades, but eventually you'll want to keep dying so you can actually purchase and USE the upgrades. The only reason you'll want to NOT die, aside from adding to your gold count, is to beat a boss or, in the case of the final boss, beat the game. There are a good number of different room layouts and enemy combinations within, plus the challenge rooms the pop up now and then. However, after playing for so many hours, especially if you're like me and get really grindy with it, you'll start to recognize all the room types repeating. Even though the four areas are supposed to be different, they are all pretty similar. They have the same room types with different skins, more or less. And the enemies aren't really all that different between areas. They're mostly just more powerful versions of previous enemies in the harder areas, with maybe one or two new ones added. More variety would've helped, but there's already a lot of different things to deal with that it may be too complex to have more of everything, so I understand. Also, there weren't a lot of instances of this, but a handful of times I found weird floor glitches where gold fell through and I couldn't get it. That, and every once in a while my character would fall through and start randomly appearing in all the adjacent rooms for a few seconds. Nothing game breaking nor frequent, but a little spooky when they happened. Also... the music will wear away your sanity, but then again, so will anything when you play the game as much as I have.

There are lots of customization options, lots of random elements, lots of strategy involved, lots of skill required... and lots of hours of playtime and replayability in this game. I got 96 hours in my first playthrough. I love Rogue Legacy. The gameplay, the music, the sound, the graphics... everything comes together to make a game that feels like it was made for ME. It's the first time since Banjo-Kazooie that a game has felt like it was made just for me. It's an amazing feeling, and I can't recommend this game enough. Easily my favorite game on Steam and has instantly worked its way into being one of my favorite games of all time. I'd really say to just buy it now. Sure, you can wait for a sale if you're skeptical... or cheap. But it's definitely worth the $15 price tag. I mean, I ended up esentially putting down $45 to play this game, and it was well worth it.

10/10 Would complete entire skill tree again
(And yes, I seriously did that. How else do you think I got 96 hours in one playthrough?)

Rogue Legacy is a 2D platforming action game by Cellar Door Games, an independent Canadian studio. It’s categorized as a roguelike, which for the uninitiated, is a sub-genre that typically includes procedurally generated levels and permanent death (meaning once you die, you start over from the beginning). Rogue Legacy has both of those, but it adds in some RPG mechanics which make the imposing threat of death easier to swallow, while not altogether curbing the difficulty that fans of the genre have come to expect.

At the beginning of Rogue Legacy, you are a generic sword-wielding hero who is tasked to fight through a dungeon. There’s some reason for doing so, and there are diaries strewn about the world to help piece together exactly what’s going on, but for the most part the narrative is in the back seat throughout Rogue Legacy and that’s totally fine.

It’s hard to overstate just how much fun the minute to minute gameplay is in Rogue Legacy. Controls feel tight and the mechanics are all-around solid and enjoyable. Any fan of 2D platformers such as Spelunky will find themselves at home here. The dungeon is split into four separate areas, and while they are distinct in aesthetic and difficulty, they do tend to blend together after ten or twenty hours in the game.

The main distinguishing factor of Rogue Legacy is the way in which death, and subsequent life after death, occurs. Upon dying (which will happen -- a lot), you get to choose a new “heir” among three choices to attempt another run through the game. Each heir can have all sorts of randomly assigned genetic traits which affect how the game plays. Discovering the novelty of some of these traits is fun in and of itself, so I won’t ruin them here, but I will say the traits are pretty well balanced, creative, and occasionally good for a laugh.

The other unique aspect of death is that your character continually gets stronger in whatever way you choose. As you traipse throughout the dungeon, your character collects gold from chests and enemies. You can invest gold after dying in a huge amount of ways; you can boost stats such as strength and armor, unlock new classes, or buy new equipment. It’s almost impossible to beat the game during the early hours because of the upgrade system, and how weak your initial character is. Having to rely on more than sheer skill may be a problem for some, but the feeling of progression through boosting your inherent power is pretty satisfying (as in most RPGs) and makes the whole experience very addicting.

Toward the end of Legacy, when your character is strong enough to make it most of the way through the dungeon before dying, each run can take about 30 minutes or more, and I found it becomes a bit of a grind. Luckily the grind doesn’t last too long (at least it didn’t for me) before you become powerful enough to beat the final boss and finish the dungeon. There is a nicely done New Game+ option, and it’s a telling sign that I immediately dove back in upon completion my first time around.

Overall, I really enjoyed my time with Rogue Legacy. The RPG mechanics do an excellent (or evil, depending on how you look at it) job of cranking up the “Just one more run” factor that roguelikes are infamous for. Blending rewarding and difficult gameplay with a really smart way to make death a little less punishing goes a long way to make Rogue Legacy one of the best games in the genre.

At $2.99 right now, buying this is borderline criminal, considering how much fun it is, and how much replay value there is. If you like Rogue-likes, buy it. If you like indie games with fun mechanics, buy it. If you like Metrovania-type games, buy it. If you enjoy games at all, buy it!!

Absolutely fantastic game. It is so good, that I, a random person on the internet, took 15 minutes out of his schedule to tell people to play it.

The premise is simple and engaging, progressing through a randomly generated castle. Enemies are varied and can get challenging. The story is hilarious, and while not groundbreaking, tends to fix a smile firmly on my face. Gameplay is simple in theory, but with the Equipment and Runes system, can get some nice depth going. It is one of those games you sit down to when you have 30 mins to spare before a big meeting, and end up just deciding to miss it.

Got this during the Steam sales at a discounted price, but would willingly pay full price again.

9.5/10

Wow, this is a lot more fun than I realized it would be. I'm going to need a gamepad to last at this level of difficulty! There's enough randomness here to keep me hooked for a long time.

The succession lines are a really neat concept. It's a very simple platformer, but tough to survive for very long. This is just an excellent game.

Rogue Legacy pits you against a wide variety of creatures that will hunt you until you have to incarnate the son/daughter of your previous dead character. The family tree concept is a great but forgetable addition. It doesn't clearly affect the gameplay, but it's fun from time to time to go back in your family tree and remembering some adventures with old characters. Gameplay is pretty basic but is kind of solid. There is a huge skill tree (Or skill ''tower'') if you prefer that offers many core upgrades, skill upgrades, new classes, class upgrades, new possibilites, in short, everything you would want to have in a skill tree. There is alot of classes to choose from, the majority unlockable in the skill tower, and all of them are upgradable, and it's a significant upgrade: Changes the name of the class, gives you an additional skill, changes stats, etc. Another particularity of Rogue Legacy are the different conditions your characters can have: O.C.D, Dyslexia, Corpolia, Anephoria, En. Memory, Homosexual/HeteroSexual (Doesn't change gameplay, but it's a fun little addition), etc. They all (almost) impact your gameplay on a significant enough level, for example: Being a dwarf gives you access to small holes that normal or huge characters can't normally access. Then, there's the blacksmith which offers you some upgrades to your armorr, cape and swords in exchange of money, and you will have to find the blueprints of these upgrades in the game. A woman also gives you runes to change your gameplay (Like the blacksmith, you find these stones in the game, mostly in fairy chests or hidden areas). And finally an architect that cam recreate the previous level so you can run through it again (Yes, the levels are randomly-generated, what a great thing!). There are three or four major areas aside from the main castle, they all have their own types of ennemies and bosses. The game is very, very varied, the replayability is gigantic, ever changing. The only thing i dislike is that you will need to grind for money, alot. Permadeath + Randomly Generated levels + Alot of content + a huge skill tree = A game you must have in your Steam library. Don't hesitate and pick up this gem!

A beautiful addition to the roguelike genre. Random generation of levels AND characters ensures that challenges remain fresh, and the incremental progression keeps it addictive. A must-buy for people who enjoy this type of game.

After putting 25 hours into this game, I highly recommend it. It starts off pretty slow and you die a alot at the beginning, but if you stick with it, you'll be glad you did.

+ Replayability with a New GamePlus Option
+ Lots of unlockables and content
+ Punishing difficulty - great for players who like hardcore games
+ The game has humor and doesn't have a dry storyline
+ Secrets and tough minigames
+ Good sound + lots of music tracks to pick from (if you find a jukebox)

- Steep learning curve
- Some reskinned enemies (they use different attacks though)
- Some character classes didn't feel balanced


This game is easily one of my favorite Rogue-likes! 9/10 stars from me.

Rogue Legacy is a surprisingly addictive roguelike with RPG elements, randomized dungeon crawling, and a nice sense of humor, making for many hours of fun gameplay for nearly anyone.

I normally don't care too much for roguelikes for the simple fact that I hate losing everything I've worked to get. Rogue Legacy sets itself apart from the others by maintaining the difficulty of other roguelikes, but death is welcomed in this game. Upon death you simply choose a new heir to rise in place of the fallen hero. Multiple heirs are available for choice and all of them come with traits and talents that can either make the game easier, harder, or funnier. Coins you gained from the last run you made must be spent if possible before returning to the castle, where you will lose them before re-entering. Armor and gear that you bought applies to all heirs.

The controls of the game can feel odd at first, using the keyboard only, but are simple. The sound and visuals of the game are fitting and have almost a nostalgic feel to them.

The RPG elements of the game are very well done. You gain money which in turn can be used to buy upgrades to health, mana, new character types, and armor. There are also many items to find, such as blueprints to purchase new armor and weapons, and runes to give you additional moves, allow flight and other various effects. Your hero also levels when fighting and upgrading stats although there is no experience bar. Some areas of the game hold higher level monsters while the initial area has lower level monsters that scale up based on what level you are.

For the price, this isn't a bad game to pick up. It provides plenty of hours of entertainment and a couple laughs along the way. I recommend it to anyone who likes platforming or roguelike games.

This is a good rogue like game that has an interesting progression system.

This progression system is really one of the key reason why I put so many hours into this game. Most rogue like games have perma death. Where if you lose thats it, its done you start from the beginning. Personally I did not like the idea of perma death in my games. I like to feel like I am working towards something and not losing everything just to try to do it again. With this said, many people who like rogue like games will disagree whole heartily with my decision and I understand that. Well with this game people get a little bit of both worlds.

This game has perma death and progression. Each character that goes into that death trap of a castle will eventually die but his or her's gold will be sent to their child where he or she can spend it on upgrades to their castle (that supplies skills, armory, stats etc) and to buy armor, accessories and even lock the previous dungeon so you can attempt it again. Then that child will die and send it's money to the next child and so on. So people get their perma death and progression all in one.

The gameplay is fun with platformer elements to it as well as rpg. Its a 2d side scroller where you go around in a randomly generated dungeon looting for gold, trying to survive and fighting bosses. Thanks to the option to lock the previous dungeon you can keep retrying the bosses again and again, without searching for the boss door. Which is nice because the bosses can be extremely hard if your not prepared. Also the dungeon itself is hard as well and you will find that it will take many attempts before finding the boss doors.

So overall, the progression system as well as the gameplay makes for an addicting game. With this said, their are a few issues I have with the game. When your character dies you get a selection of three (maybe four) randomly generated characters to choose from. All of these characters have different classes, special attacks and/or different qualities. Although the qualities like vertigo can really mess with you, most of the other qualities are forgettable after a while but it does add another element to the game at times. The random generated abilities on the other hand, were for the most part useless because most of the classes (except maybe mage and spell sword) had very little Mp to work with. I found that the normal attacks were sufficient in getting me through the dungeons. It could have really helped if the characters had a bigger Mp pool to work with and maybe some different spells and abilities.

Overall, good game with a few issues with the characters abilities, still very fun to play and has a game plus mode so good replayability as well.
