The one complaint I have is that this game is not great with keyboard controls. I did eventually find a combo that worked for me (they kindly allow full rebinding of keys).
Rogue Legacy is a very addictive very fun game made in the tradition of Metroidvania 2-D style games. It offers a wide variety of monsters to fight each with their own creative way of trying to kill you. And you will die... a lot. With each death you get to select a new "heir" from three options each with different abilities which can either help you or give you a lot of extra challange or just change the way the map looks.
As you progress you'll earn gold to upgrade your stats (which are not lost on death) and even unlock new character types from the standard mage to the less standard ninja.
What I really enjoy is that the creators didn't take themselves overly seriously. They were serious enough to make a game that is fun, but with gleefully silly nature that makes me smile when I play it.
I'm put in mind of Broforce a lot because you can get through a run in either game pretty quickly which is great if you have 15 minutes you want to kill and not commit to a game that demands hours. Though in both games I have spent hours playing it...
Bottom line, it's a fun game to play at your leisure. If it comes up on sale, pick it up and enjoy.
