Lots of games claim to be roguelikes, but few actually resemble the original Rogue. That game launched back in 1980 for Unix platforms and was a top-down dungeon crawler.
There was a lot of depth for a game that looks like it existed in a text editor. You’d explore a dungeon made up of various rooms, battling monsters, collecting items, and leveling up. If you died, it was game over.
Rogue Hearts actually emulates Rogue, out now on Android
Fast forward to 2018, and there’s a whole genre of games claiming to be like Rogue. Really though, all a lot of them share in common is the permadeath. Many of them don’t even have a top-down view or leveling system!
That’s where Rogue Hearts comes in though. It’s out right now on Android and is only interested in imitating Rogue. It’s top-down, features leveling, and has you exploring a variety of dungeons.
Well, the term dungeon is liberal here. It might be a forest, castle, or an actual dungeon. Go and find out for yourself if you like it on Google Play right now.
