Game Update: Vertical Drop Heroes v1.0.3d Now Available!

Hello everyone! I've uploaded an update for Vertical Drop Heroes, bringing it to version 1.0.3d. Here are the list of changes in this version:

- Added the Inheritance System: the descendant of your previous hero will always appear in the lineup, until you quit the game. If you rolled a hero that you like, this is a good way to retry the same build without having to rely on random rerolls!
- Enemy descriptions added for every enemy in the game, to give players a better idea of what each enemy does
- 6 new music tracks, so each level now has its own unique level music
- A new (optional) miniboss, the Demonic Rogue, will randomly appear on some levels. Does not activate until injured, and has one random hero ability. Drops a gem and 4 keys when defeated

Ein nettes Spiel für zwischendurch. Es motiviert besonders durch schnelle Erfolge und ist schnell und leicht zu lernen.
Cool, das es einen Splitscreen-Modus gibt. Beschäftig auf jeden Fall eine Weile.
Nur der Preis ist etwas happig.

"Vertical Drop Heroes HD" ist ein angenehm einlullendes Roguelike. Es eignet sich perfekt um nebenher Musik, Hörspiele, Hörbücher, Podcasts etc. anzuhören, da man hier nicht viel denken muss. Ich wäre enttäuscht gewesen, hätte ich den Originalpreis gezahlt, da es bessere, kostenlose Alternativen gibt. Ich habe es im Bundle erhalten, würde aber sagen, dass ein oder zwei Euro durchaus angemessen wären.
Leider schwächelt das Spiel an einigen Stellen:
-Ich liebe Spiele, in denen man viel freispielen kann. Sollte man Spielfunktionen und neue Fertigkeiten freispielen können - umso besser. Bedauerlicherweise sind hier die meisten Fähigkeiten im Vergleich zu einigen herausragenden anderen Fähigkeiten, oder auch Waffen, schlecht oder gar nutzlos. Auf mich wirkt das ganze nicht gerade ausbalaciert. Ab einem gewissen Punkt gibt man ein Vermögen aus, sich einen halbwegs passablen Helden auszuwürfeln - warum dann nicht gleich ein Pauschalvermögen für meinen Wunschhelden, den ich dann auch noch optisch selbst gestalten kann?
-Gold zu investieren um die Stärke meiner Charaktere dauerhaft zu steigern widerstrebt meiner Idee von Roguelike. Diese Funktion macht Grinding einfach zu attraktiv, was mich gleich zum nächsten Punkt bringt.
-"Vertical Drop Heroes HD" ist unfair. Es gibt Projektile, denen man nicht ausweichen kann. Das macht, meiner Meinung nach, das Infinity Sword (1HP/1HitKill) total nutzlos. Mit genug Zeit, Glück und Geduld könnte ein halbhirniger Affe oder sogar ein Gangsterrapper das Spiel durchspielen. Es erfordert ein Minimum an Geschick und nahezu keine geistigen Fähigkeiten. Das jedoch macht es, wie bereits gesagt, zu einer sehr angenehmen Nebenbeschäftigung.

The Roguelike is one of the most obscurely defined game genres, so I'm not sure this is technically one.
It's definitely a game I enjoy a lot though.

Nerdook Productions, generally better known for their in-browser flash games has delivered a solid game somewhat comparable to Rogue Legacy.
The player chooses one of three heroes with various traits, spells and weapons assigned randomly and sets off to conquer a dungeon that is about a dozen floors deep.

As the name implies though, each 'floor' is already quite deep, as the entire game is very much a descent through a random environment (seen from the side in colourful 2D graphics). The width of your screen is always the width of the level. You will fight your way down each floor to the bottom where a sealed portal lies. To unlock the seal you must defeat the boss or unlock it using 5 keys (which you also expend to open locked trapdoors earlier in the level and treasure chests) or, if the situation or an aspect of your character allow for it, destroy the wall surrounding the portal.

As you defeat enemies you gain experience and gold, the experience goes directly to your current character to empower him/her, the gold is primarily used between runs to get better base stats and upgrades as well as at merchants you encounter randomly on some floors that will sell you new weapons, traits and spells.

The whole thing wraps up nicely with a satisfying and challenging final boss.
One of the main things that sets this game apart from similar games (or specifically Rogue Legacy) is that not killing enemies is a viable alternative. Until you've killed your first enemy on each floor you'll be able to see and pick up pacifist sigils that are dotted around the level. Picking these up will grant experience and gold, same as killing enemies. It's not always a viable option (sometimes you'll really need to dispatch enemies in your path), but it's nice that there's an incentive to change things up every now and then and not kill everything in sight.

I've compared this game several times now to Rogue Legacy, which might not be entirely fair.
The question is, though, does this game offer anything that Rogue Legacy doesn't?
It does, and it's a game I recommend. However, if you've not yet played Rogue Legacy I couldn't recommend this more, so I would suggest playing that first.

Fun game that's along the lines of Rogue Legacy, but not as difficult/grindy.

It's currently in the Humble Weekly Bundle, I recommend picking it up.

Legit game. Tough and simple. Less cutomization than rogue legacy and less rushy than magicte, yet really similar to both games. Its also the same genre (upgrade in death)

main differences, here you can only upgrade health and damage. However.. you buy traits (and you have 2) and spells(also 2) in maps for new heroes. You also buy access to portals so you can jump right into map x (there are 10 maps ?). Spells are charge based and not mana.

The game is really simple. maps are short and you can only go down. sometimes you miss blocks (or destroy them) and you cant go up unless you get a teleporter. Anyway. maps are short and intense. Easy to die but its also easy to learn and truly grasp the game.

Careful when buying spells and traits, you dont pick them and some are better than others.
